BODY EFFECTS MASSAGE : PRE-NATAL MASSAGE
THE BENEFITS OF PRE-NATAL MASSAGE
HORMONE REGULATION In women who received bi-weekly massages for only five weeks, hormones such as norepinephrine and cortisol (hormones associated with stress) were reduced, and dopamine and serotonin levels were increased (low levels of these hormones are associated with depression).
Healthier, happier and relaxed.

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. This leads to mood regulation and improved cardiovascular health.

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.
Prental vs. perineal massage.

A distinction should be made between therapeutic prenatal massage and perineal massage, the latter referring to the practice of manually stretching the tissues surrounding the birth canal to help reduce the risk of episiotomy or trauma associated with childbirth.

DECREASED 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.
A solution to enflamed 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.

BETTER SLEEP Therapeutic massage has been used for centuries to improve overall health, reduce stress, and relieve muscle tension - all of which result in you having a much better restful and healthy sleep pattern. We encourage you to try for yourself and see the substantial difference massages will impact your mood, feelings and over-all lifestyle.
What statistics say.

Modern investigation and research have shown that prenatal massage therapy can be an instrumental ingredient in women’s prenatal care and should be given consideration for women seeking a holistic, natural childbirthing process.

PRENATAL MASSAGE AS PART OF PRENATAL CARE
BODY POSITION DURING A
PRENATAL MASSAGE

Many professionals consider the best position for a pregnant woman during massage is side-lying. Tables that provide a hole in which the uterus can fit may not be reliable and can still apply pressure to the abdomen, or allow the abdomen to dangle, causing uncomfortable stretching of the uterine ligaments. Consult your massage therapist before your first appointment to verify what position they place their clients in during the massage.
