  • Benefits
    • help reduce anxiety
    • decrease symptoms of depression
    • relieve muscle aches and joint pains
    • improve labor outcomes and newborn health
  • Hormone regulation
    • Studies done in the past 10 years have shown that hormone levels associated with relaxation and stress are significantly altered when massage therapy is introduced to women’s prenatal care.
  • Reduction of swelling
    • Edema, or swelling of the joints during pregnancy, is often caused by reduced circulation and increased pressure on the major blood vessels by the heavy uterus. Massage helps to stimulate soft tissues to reduce the collection of fluids in swollen joints. This also improves the removal of tissue waste carried by the body’s lymph system.
  • Improvement of nerve pain
    • Sciatic nerve pain is experienced by many women in late pregnancy as the uterus rests on muscles of the pelvic floor and lower back. The pressure of the uterus spreads tension to the muscles of the upper and lower leg, causing them to swell and put pressure on nearby nerves. Massage therapy addresses the inflamed nerves by helping to release the tension on nearby muscles. Many women have experienced a significant reduction in sciatic nerve pain during pregnancy through massage.
  • Other potential benefits of prenatal massage:
    • Reduced back pain
    • Reduced joint pain
    • Improved circulation
    • Reduced edema
    • Reduced muscle tension and headaches
    • Reduced stress and anxiety
    • Improved oxygenation of soft tissues and muscles
