Pregnancy massage is one of the few holistic treatments an expecting woman can receive.
Finding time to relax in pregnancy is invaluable and essential to both mother and baby’s wellbeing. This special time can help give a woman time to focus on the miracle she is making and nurture the bond she is developing with her unborn baby.
Pregnant ladies may experience backache, neck and shoulder pain, pelvic pain, swelling in their legs and ankles, carpal tunnel syndrome in their wrists, and insomnia. There is a lot of preparation needed for the baby’s arrival but equally, a mother needs to prepare her own body for her forthcoming birth experience, and massage can assist in this.
Taking time out for a pregnancy massage not only helps to ground you, it can help you bond with your baby, as you are able to fully focus on the baby’s arrival and enjoy the remaining time you are nurturing and growing your little one.
Massage is good for baby too. During your pregnancy massage, you release hormones as a result of skin stimulation, which brings about relaxation and calmness so your baby will feel more chilled out too.
