Hello, my future mommy-to-be, and congratulations on the bun in your oven! You may have stumbled onto this page wondering, “What is prenatal massage?” And why do you need it? Short answer – pregnancy is hard enough; you deserve to be pampered, and if that constant ache in your lower back hasn’t convinced you yet, allow me to elaborate.
Prenatal massage therapy, like normal deep tissue massage therapy, aids the body in a myriad of ways: it reduces stress and anxiety, improves sleep quality, decreases aches and pains, and relieves tension. This type of massage helps facilitate a healthy/easier labor and delivery, and studies show that women who have frequent massage therapy have improved newborn health. Who doesn’t want that? See below:
“Studies done in the past 10 years have shown that hormone levels associated with relaxation and stress are significantly altered when massage therapy is introduced to women’s prenatal care. This leads to mood regulation and improved cardiovascular health.
In women who received bi-weekly massages for only five weeks, hormones such as norepinephrine and cortisol (hormones associated with stress) were reduced, and dopamine and serotonin levels were increased (low levels of these hormones are associated with depression).
These changes in hormone levels also led to fewer complications during birth and fewer instances of newborn complications, such as low birth weight. The evidence strongly suggests there are maternal and newborn health benefits when therapeutic massage is incorporated into regular prenatal care.”
