Prenatal Massage

The PRENATAL MASSAGE (over 3 months pregnancy), is a technique involving deep bodywork designed to improve your circulation, take some of the strain off your muscles and joints, and generally re-energize you.
Scads of studies show that massage can reduce stress hormones in your body and relax and loosen your muscles.
It can also increase blood flow, which is so important when you’re pregnant, and keep your lymphatic system working at peak efficiency, flushing out toxins from your body.
And it reconnects your mind with your body, a connection that’s comforting for those of you who suspect an alien has taken up residence inside of you.
During pregnancy, regular prenatal massages may not only help you relax, but may also relieve insomnia, joint pain, neck and back pain, leg cramping, and sciatica.

Additionally, it can reduce swelling in your hands and feet (as long as that swelling isn’t a result of preeclampsia), relieve carpal tunnel pain, and alleviate headaches and sinus congestion all common pregnancy problems.
Massage may also lift depression without the use of medication, according to some scientific studies.
In addition, there are pregnancy complications that can make massage somewhat risky.
Check with your practitioner before receiving a prenatal massage if you have diabetes, have morning sickness or are vomiting regularly, have been diagnosed with preeclampsia or high blood pressure, have a fever or a contagious virus, or have abdominal pain or bleeding.
If you are in the second half of your pregnancy, don’t lie on your back during your massage; the weight of your baby and uterus can reduce circulation to your placenta and create more problems than any massage can cure.
