Pregnancy and Massage

Studies in the past 10 years have consistently shown that with regular pregnancy massage hormone levels are significantly regulated when massage with a registered massage therapist has been introduced to a women’s prenatal care.

The benefits of such are:

  • Improved cardiovascular health.
  • Reduction in the production of norepinephrine and cortisol (hormones associated with stress).  These hormonal reductions can often lead to fewer birth and newborn complications.
  • Swelling of the joints during pregnancy are often caused by circulatory problems and increased pressure on major blood vessels.  Massage will help stimulate the tissues to reduce the collection of fluids in swollen joints.
  • Carrying a baby changes your centre of gravity putting stress on your back, neck, abs and shoulders.  A prenatal massage offers a drug free way to alleviate some of this discomfort.
  • Prenatal massage also offers increased blood circulation providing more oxygen and nutrients to the mother and fetus stimulating the lymph system and increasing immunity and removal of toxins.
  • Sciatic pain - A massage therapist is the optimal choice. They understand the exact placement of the sciatic nerve in the body and will help to relieve the pressure with additional pressure of a therapeutic nature.

These are just some of the many benefits associated with prenatal massage.  At Massage for Health we offer prenatal massage with one of our registered massage therapist.  Call Massage For Health today at 403.225.0763 and ask about this today.
