What Are the Benefits of Prenatal Massages?

For centuries, massages have been used as a method to help people relax and fight off stress fro their everyday lives. This is especially true for women looking for a way to fight the symptoms associated with pregnancy. During pregnancy, women experience many physical and hormonal changes that can put them under immense amounts of stress. Furthermore, most pregnant women have to make a delicate balance between their pregnancy and a calendar full of work, family and social responsibilities. All the stress and discomfort that accompany a woman during their pregnancy can affect not only the mother’s overall health but also the life on the child.

Prenatal massages can help future moms fight off unwanted stress while promoting good health for her and their child. Some of the benefits of prenatal massages include:

Discomfort Reduction

Swelling is common during pregnancy. Many women can experience swelling on hands and feet which can cause discomfort and in some cases, pain. Properly massaging hands and feet can help alleviate swelling by improving and promoting better blood flow and circulation.

Additionally, many women can experience shoulder, back, and leg pain due to extra weight. The tension created in shoulders, legs, feet, and lower back can prevent these body parts from obtaining the necessary blood flow, and oxygen. Prenatal massages can help alleviate these symptoms and help every patient feel better.

Another common problem for many future moms is leg cramps. Like back pain, leg cramps can happen because of the extra weight women have to carry during pregnancy. Massaging the legs can significantly reduce leg cramping and help pregnant women feel alleviated.

Stress Relief

Stress is very common during pregnancy. If left unattended, stress can affect both the mom and the child negatively. Staying relaxed and comfortable during pregnancy is essential. A prenatal massage will target the areas that can cause stress during pregnancy. Places such as shoulders, feet, head, temple, and back can be targeted during prenatal massages to reduce stress and prevent stress from building up over time.

Relieve Anxiety

Experiencing a prenatal massage can help women feel relaxed and at ease. When a person is comfortable the brain segregates dopamine and endorphins which can help reduce the levels of anxiety and depression. A prenatal massage from a professional can help you keep safe, relaxed, and energetic throughout your pregnancy.

Things to Avoid During Your Pregnancy

During pregnancy, you should be very careful with all the things you expose yourself to including places, foods, drinks, and experiences among other things. For instance, you should avoid toxic products such as cleaning products, glues, abrasives, and other domestic products that may harm you and your child. Exercising is always recommended, even during pregnancy. However, not every exercise may prove to be effective and cause more harm than good. Make sure you go for a walk rather than trotting or meditating over trying difficult yoga positions.

Another critical element that may impact your pregnancy directly is nutrition. You should avoid foods that have high-fat contents, added sugars, trans fats, and other damaging ingredients. Having a balanced, healthy diet can help you, and your baby get the proper nutrition you need. You should avoid alcoholic beverages altogether throughout the entire pregnancy process. Drinking alcohol during pregnancy can cause health problems to the child. You should also avoid using things such as Jacuzzis or saunas as they increase the likelihood of overheating, dehydrating and fainting.

All of the things you should avoid during pregnancy have the potential of adding extra anxiety during your gestation period. It is also recommended you talk to your treating Ob-Gyn to see whether a prenatal massage can help you during pregnancy. Our Denver Massage therapists can help you get a soothing and relaxing prenatal massage.
