Benefits of Pregnancy Massage

The therapeutic benefits of massage have been known since 3000 B.C. or earlier. However, the benefits of massage for pregnant women are a relativity new discovery. As scientists continue to study the effects of massage on pregnant women and their unborn children, more and more benefits of the therapy are being revealed. Fortunately for the world and for yourself, pregnancy massage is becoming an increasingly popular practice.

  • Reduces stress and promotes relaxation.

  • Relieves muscle spasms, cramps, and myofascial pain, especially in the neck, back, hips and legs that may be caused by muscle tension and shifts in posture to accomodate increasing weight.

  • Relieves the added stress placed on the weight bearing joints - the ankles, knees and hips.

  • Stimulates the release of endorphins, the body's natural pain killers, into the brain and nervous system.

  • Helps with circulatory support of the blood and lymph to reduce possible problems with swelling, varicose veins and blood clots. With increased blood circulation the body delivers more oxygen and nutrients to the mother and baby.
