Massage Therapy During Pregnancy

Massage Therapy PregnancyRegular massage therapy visits throughout pregnancy have been shown to significantly reduce back pain, decrease anxiety and stress, relieve muscle aches and joint pain, and improve labor.


Why you should see our massage therapist:

Decrease pain.

Sciatic pain is one of the most common symptoms experienced during pregnancy. The causes of pain can be related to increased weight, changes in posture, and the release of hormones which cause joints and ligaments to become lax. Massage therapy helps to increase mobility, by releasing the tension on nearby muscles. Many women have experienced significant reduction in sciatic nerve pain during pregnancy through regular massage.

Reduce Swelling.

Massage helps to stimulate increase blood flow, and improves removal of wastes. Regular massage therapy visits can decrease swelling, and improve circulation.

Top reasons to get regular massages while pregnant:

  • Decreased back and leg pain
  • Lowered anxiety
  • Improved sleep
  • Decreased levels of the stress hormone norepinephrine
  • Increased levels of the “feel-good” hormones serotonin and dopamine
  • Decreased levels of cortisol, an indicator of stress
  • An overall improvement in mood
