The miracle of childbirth is an amazing and emotional roller coaster and one which puts a huge extra strain on a mother’s body.
Massage is extremely beneficial, not only to the mother but to the unborn baby as well. This appreciation of how truly amazing our bodies are and how much of a strain we put them under during this magical time has allowed our massage therapist to help countless women enjoy their pregnancies.
There are numerous emotional and physiological benefits associated with pregnancy massage including:
- ZReleases Oxytocin*
- ZReduces anxiety
- ZReduces swelling in hands, feet and ankles
- ZLessens Sciatic pain
- ZEases muscular discomfort
- ZStrengthens the immune system
*Oxytocin is your friend! It’s a hormone that helps relax and reduce blood pressure and cortisol levels. It increases pain thresholds and has anti-anxiety effects.
Repeated exposure to oxytocin has long-lasting effects. Therefore regular massage is not only a little luxury but you are also preparing your body for labour! (Improving your pain thresholds!)
