Therapeutic massage has been used for centuries to improve overall health, reduce stress, and relieve muscle aches and tension.
Studies indicate that massage during pregnancy reduces anxiety, decreases symptoms of depression, relieves muscle aches and joint pains, and can improve labour outcomes and new-borns health.
There have been many studies done on the benefits of massage during pregnancy. Studies have shown that hormone levels associated with relaxation and stress are significantly altered when massage becomes a part of prenatal care. Massage helps mood regulation and improved cardiovascular health.
Swollen joints or ankles?
Swelling or edema 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 with circulation of blood in the soft tissues and reduces fluid build-up in joints. It also encourages the removal of toxins carried by the body’s lymphatic system.
Especially lower back 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 causing shooting pain and spasm and sometimes sciatica.
Massage addresses inflamed nerves and tight muscles and reduces tension. Many women have experienced a significant reduction in sciatic nerve pain during pregnancy through massage.
Massage soothes away tension headaches and I in cooperate the use of acupressure points to gently relieve pressure in the head, neck and shoulders.
Anxiety, discomfort and hormones can contribute to insomnia during pregnancy (meaning the inability to fall or stay asleep). It's very common and can be frustrating. Mind and body are connected and the relaxing effect of massage soothes you and can help to assist with a peaceful night’s sleep.
