Massaging Mums To Be

Published on 20th March 2017

Mums To Be

Pregnancy is a wonderful experience for most women, but it does come with its share of physical and emotional stresses. Worries about the health of the baby and preparation for impending motherhood can be draining, while the physical changes occurring within the body can lead to pain and discomfort.

From a physical standpoint, pregnancy places a real burden on the body's structures. The added weight of a baby puts strain on the entire body, with the most common stress zones being the back and neck.  The need for pregnant women to invest in their wellbeing is key to ensure the health of themselves and their babies. Massage is an excellent component of a healthy pregnancy.

Benefits of Pregnancy Massage include:

  • Relaxation and reduction of stress.
  • Relief from muscle cramps, spasms, and myofascial pain, especially in the lower back, neck, hips, and legs.
  • Increase in blood and lymph circulation, which can reduce swelling.
  • Reduces stress on weight-bearing joints.
  • Enhances the pliability of skin and underlying tissues.
  • Provides support for the new mother with physical and emotional strains of mothering.
  • Encourages rest, relaxation and promotes better sleep.
