Description

A pregnancy – or prenatal – massage is a specially adapted gentle and soothing massage tailored specifically for the mother-to-be.

As a term, ‘pregnancy massage‘ applies to the hands-on massage treatment for a woman during her pregnancy.

Pregnancy massage may help relieve some of the aches and pains of pregnancy.

As the abdomen grows outward, posture changes to realign the center of gravity over the hips. For some people, the stress on the joints and muscles results in low back, pelvic, neck, shoulder, or sciatic nerve pain.

Professional prenatal massage therapy can relieve these aches. Research shows it is effective for leg and back pain during pregnancy. Pregnancy massage can also reduce swelling and fluid build-up.

Pregnancy massage is also used to boost mood and enhance overall well-being.

Research shows that prenatal massage can reduce feelings of depression and anxiety.
