Pregnancy is a special time in the life of a woman, it is a time when every expecting mother is overwhelmed with love and joy for their unborn child, however, the enjoyable parts of pregnancy can be diminished as she starts to experience various physical challenges. A woman’s body goes through many physical and mental changes during the pregnancy; some women are able to comfortably adjust to these changes while others face some difficulties. The pregnancy massage offered at Melbourne Natural Therapies can be an answer to many aches and pains associated with your pregnancy.
Here are some of the reasons why pregnancy massage at Melbourne Natural Therapies may prove to be an important part of your pre and post pregnancy regime:
Alleviate Common Pregnancy Pains
Although pregnancy is a wonderful experience for most women, pregnancy often brings with it a lot of aches and pains such as achey legs and feet, headaches, sciatica, hip pain, neck and shoulder pain, shin splints, lower back pain and cramps. The good news is that most of these issues can be effectively alleviated with professional pregnancy massage.
Many pregnant women experience sleep problems during the later part of their pregnancy. A pregnancy massage can help increase blood circulation, soothe aches and pain, reduce stress, and encourage relaxation leading to a better sleep at night.
Getting pregnancy massage during your pregnancy can help regulate hormones. Studies have shown that pregnant women who get regular massage see a drop in norepinephrine and cortisol hormones and an increase in dopamine and serotonin hormones. These hormonal changes not only make the delivery process less complicated, they also decrease depression and anxiety.
