Why massage during pregnancy?
Pregnancy massage is a wonderful choice to compliment your prenatal care. It is an ideal way to reduce stress and promote overall wellbeing.
Pregnancy massage relieves many of the common discomforts experienced during pregnancy, including: back pain, joint aches, sinus congestion, pain from carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches and swollen arms / legs (not due to pre-eclampsia).
In addition to that, massage encourages circulation of blood and lymph, and releases serotonin, endorphins and dopamine, which calm your nervous system and improve sleep, whilst also calming anxiety and depression caused by your changing hormones.
It also helps to create a bond between you a bubba, and it feels absolutely wonderful!
