Benefits of Pregnancy Massage!
Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for pre-natal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as, morning sickness, backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (swelling).
In addition, massage for pregnant women reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages blood and lymph circulation, helps to relax nervous tension — which aids in better sleep — and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes. Massage during pregnancy is one of the best ways to reduce tension and relieve stress.
