Pregnancy presents many changes in body, mind and lifestyle. It is my great pleasure to offer support and relief of the discomforts involved, as well as information about changes and self-care that can be helpful every day of your pregnancy and beyond.
Having regular prenatal massages is very beneficial to your baby as well as yourself. Massage has shown to have significant effects on the nervous system and increases hormones involved with feeling relaxed and happy. These hormones circulate not only to you but also to the baby.
Massage therapy can alleviate the discomforts experienced during pregnancy, including:
- Muscle tension
- Lower and upper back pain
- Shortness of breath
- Sciatic pain
- Leg cramps and swelling
- Decreased circulation
- Breast tenderness
- Poor sleep, mental and physical fatigue
- Anxiety and depression (hormone related)
