Pregancy massage has many health benefits including:
1. Reduces stress and anxiety:
Pregnancy can be a stressful and anxious time, and massage can help to reduce these feelings. Massage promotes relaxation by releasing endorphins, which are natural mood boosters. Studies also show that stress can affect the health of your baby.
2. Stimulate your vagus nerve
Research suggests that your vagal tone (level of vagus nerve activity) can be passed on from mother to newborn and mothers that carry low moods and energies such as depression, anxiety and anger during pregnancy have lower vagal activity, lower serotonin and dopamine levels which can then be expressed in their newborn. By regularly stimulating your vagus nerve, you're setting your little one up with a strong defence system.
3. Relieves muscle tension and pain:
As baby grows, mum's body undergoes many changes that can cause muscle tension and pain. Massage can help to alleviate these discomforts, reducing muscle soreness and increasing flexibility.
4. Improves circulation:
Pregnancy can cause swelling in the legs and feet due to poor circulation. Massage can stimulate blood flow and lymphatic drainage,
reducing swelling and promoting overall health.
5. Supports better sleep:
Many pregnant women struggle with getting a good night's sleep. Massage can promote deeper, more restful sleep by reducing stress and
anxiety, easing muscle tension, and promoting relaxation.
6. Improves mood:
Hormonal changes during pregnancy can cause mood swings and emotional instability. Massage can help to balance hormones, reducing mood
swings and promoting overall emotional well-being.
7. Helps prepare for labour:
Massage can help to prepare the body for labour by promoting relaxation and reducing anxiety. Studies have also shown that regular prenatal massage can lead to shorter labor and reduced need for pain medication.
