Benefits of pregnancy massage

Massage will help prepare for an easier delivery by increasing her kinesthetic awareness.

  • Massage stimulates glandular secretions which help stabilize hormone levels.

  • Massage to the legs can help control varicose veins, and the draining effect of massage facilitates the reduction of edema.

  • Massage increases general circulation which increases blood to the body including the placenta.

  • Red blood cells lining the vessel walls are reintroduced into circulation, which can help eliminate fatigue and anemia.

  • The lymphatic system circulates faster and more efficiently, resulting in more energy and less fatigue.

  • Massage can greatly reduce the strain of muscles on the lower back, pelvic, shoulder and pectoral girdle.

  • Massage can sedate the nervous system, promoting rest and relaxation and by increasing the release of endorphins.

  • Promotes positive self image

  • Decreases postural stress

  • Increases breathing capacity

  • Increases muscle tone and flexibility

  • Massage to the abdomen after delivery will help the uterus to clamp down and stop blood flow; also massage to the abdomen 6-10 weeks after a C-Section can help to break up and realign scar tissue at the site of incision.
