Pregnancy Massage ∙ Troy Ohio
Pregnancy massage is designed to address your specific needs. Carrying a baby inside you changes your center of gravity and puts a lot of stress on your back, neck, abdominal muscles, and shoulders. Pregnancy also relaxes your ligaments, so that your pelvic joints are less stable, and changes your posture, pulling your pelvis forward sometimes causing lower back pain. This therapeutic massage is known to decrease anxiety, symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches, joint pains and regulate hormone levels.
More Confidence & Less Anxiety
Therapeutic massage during pregnancy also helps to improve circulation, aid with digestion and help with sleep dysfunctions. Pregnancy massage is different from a regular massage because it involves specific techniques (i.e. side-lying, pregnancy pillows) and necessary precautions to enhance the health of the mother and her baby.
All prospective pregnant massage clients should check with their attending physician before scheduling an appointment.
Relief of Everyday Symptoms
Massage for pregnant women offers a number of benefits, and it's always a good idea to discuss with your therapist any everyday symptoms you'd like to see relieved. Those might include:
Headaches can be relieved by massage focusing on the head, neck and shoulders. In addition, maintaining optimal levels of stress relief through massage reduces the chances of migraines or tension headaches by relaxing trigger points and muscle spasms.
Muscle tension created by carrying the extra weight of a baby can be relieved by encouraging blood flow to the afflicted areas. This provides more nutrient-rich oxygen and also increases the flow of lymphatic fluid, which sweeps away toxins and metabolic waste.
Fatigue, backaches, leg cramps and swelling/edema can all be relieved through various types of massage for pregnant women.
The ordinary aches and pains of pregnancy are countered by the release of serotonin, your body's natural anti-pain chemical, which is stimulated by massage.
