At Melbourne Natural Therapies, we offer pre and post-natal pregnancy massage by qualified practitioners which is safe and effective. Let’s have a look at some of the pregnancy massage benefits.
Pregnancy Massage Benefits
Your body goes through amazing changes during your pregnancy, which effects the muscular, skeletal and connective tissues of your body. Pregnancy also places an increased demand on your body for nutrients, energy and weight bearing capacity as the baby grows.
How It Can Help
Remedial massage during and after your pregnancy can be extremely beneficial. One of the many pregnancy massage benefits is increased circulation, which assists the body to remove both waste products and excess fluid through the lymphatic system; this can reduce swelling and oedema more effectively.
Things We Can Help With
There are increased physical and emotional pressures experienced throughout pregnancy that can place more demand on your body. Studies have shown that when we have high levels of the stress hormone cortisol in your bloodstream for a prolonged period of time, it can negatively impact the immune system and as a result, your ability to prevent and recover from illness.
Using remedial massage through pregnancy can effectively reduce stress and anxiety, combatting muscular aches and pains. One of the most important results from this is improved sleep; your body’s primary period of healing and recovery.
Remedial massage can also assist your body to recover faster after the birth. Remedial massage increases the supply of oxygenated blood. This makes sure your body receives adequate nutrients to support retention of muscle tissue and skeletal strength throughout your pregnancy; it also assists your body to heal faster after birth.
