What Are the Benefits of Prenatal Massage?

Prenatal massage goes beyond making expectant mothers comfortable. It is a safe supplemental treatment that helps provide ache and pain relief. It often helps expectant mothers who have a difficult time during pregnancy due to discomfort and pain. Our prenatal massage in Portsmouth is often ordered by physicians to help expectant mothers through pregnancy.

  • Swelling Reduction
    • Pregnancy often causes reduced circulation because of increased pressure on major blood vessels. Prenatal massage helps stimulate soft tissue to reduce fluid buildup on joints. It also helps improve the ability of the lymphatic system to carry away waste.
  • Hormone Regulation
    • Hormones, such as norepinephrine and cortisol, are reduced, while beneficial hormones, such as dopamine and serotonin, increase for women who receive prenatal massage. These changes help lower the chance of complications during birth.
  • Reduction of Headaches and Sinusitis
    • Prenatal massage helps decrease muscle spasms in specific areas, helping expectant mothers relieve headaches and sinusitis resulting from increased blood flow to mucus membranes.
  • Pain Relief or Reduction
    • Releasing serotonin helps decrease recurring bouts of discomfort, aches, and pain.
  • Blood Pressure Control
    • Prenatal massages facilitate better blood flow, maintaining optimum blood pressure for expectant mothers.
  • Improvement of Flexibility
    • Prenatal massages help prevent muscle stiffness and reduce muscle cramps.
  • Helping the Nourishment of the Fetus
    • Because of the increased blood circulation, prenatal massages help the flow of oxygen and nourishment reach the fetus.
  • Enhances Sleep
    • Prenatal massages have a calming effect on the brain because of nerve relaxation. Pain relief and discomfort reduction also help expectant mothers get better sleep.
  • Helps Women Through Labor

Reduction in lower back pain, stiffness, and muscle spasms help expectant mothers improve contraction during labor.

What Are the Benefits of Post-Natal Massage?

  • Helps Mothers Relax
    • Postnatal massage facilitates the release of endorphins, which fight off the stress and depression that usually comes with becoming a new mother.
  • Helps Mothers Get Better Sleep
    • As the body and mind get better relaxation through postnatal massage, mothers can get much-better sleep thereby reducing the fatigue that comes with caring for the baby.
  • Helps Heal Internal Wounds
    • Postnatal massage helps the lymphatic system in carrying away waste. It also helps significantly in recovering from muscle tension and sore spots created by the birth process.
