Benefits of Pregnancy Massage

by | May 28, 2015 | 0 comments

Many people think of a massage as a luxury, an occasional treat or as part of a pampering session. However, one of the most beneficial times for a massage is during pregnancy.

Pregnancy can be a stressful time, with increased levels of anxiety and problems sleeping. In addition, carrying a baby changes your centre of gravity and puts extra pressure on your back, neck and abdominal muscles.

Amongst the possible positive effects of massage during pregnancy are:

• Less anxiety
• Decrease in back and leg pain
• Better sleep patterns
• Decrease in stress levels
• Increase in “feel good” hormones serotonin and dopamine

Massage is also thought to boost the body’s immune system to enable it to fight off viruses. At the very least you will feel more relaxed and in a much better frame of mind.
