What Are The Benefits Of Massage On Pregnancy?
Being pregnant can be hard for many expecting mums. The stress and anxiety alone can be overwhelming. Then add the back pain almost all expecting mums experience during their pregnancy, and it can become quite difficult. In such cases, pregnancy massages help relax and invigorate your muscles providing relief. Research has shown that getting a pregnancy massage decreases norepinephrine (a stress hormone) in your blood stream which helps you sleep better. Also it helps with the leg and back pain which can be troublesome for all. You can get both prenatal and postnatal pregnancy massages here from trained and experienced therapist.
Finding A Therapist
An expecting mum should take care when looking for a pregnancy massage therapist. Not all therapists are skilled or comfortable giving a prenatal massage. When making an appointment be sure to inform your massage therapist that you are pregnant and ask if they have experience working with pregnant women.
