Locations that offer Pregnancy Massage
Pregnancy massage describes any hands-on massage during or after pregnancy (prenatal or postnatal massage).
Pregnancy massage shares many of the goals of regular massage – to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and just make you feel good. But it’s also tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies.
Therapeutic massages are known to help pregnant women reduce and relieve lots of different aches, pains and tension found in the muscles, joints and nerves. Women who receive regular pregnancy massages are said to have less complications during labor and delivery. Newborn complications such as low birth weight are also said to be fewer when a mother receives therapeutic massages while pregnant.
Studies indicate that massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health.
