Benefits of Massage During Pregnancy

  • Cleanses the lymphatic system eliminating toxins and giving the body more energy
  • Increases circulation, which helps to oxygenate the baby and mom
  • Increases the red blood count, thereby helping to reduce the chances of anemia
  • Helps leg discomfort caused by varicose veins and swelling
  • Helps elimination, thereby helping constipation and vericose veins
  • Opens up the pelvis allowing for an easier delivery
  • Relieves muscle spasming and ligament over stretching
  • Helps maintain muscle tone so that muscles return to normal faster and easier after delivery
  • Relaxes the nervous system which aids in releasing more endorphins which helps to balance mom's emotions.  This allows hormones to be released to maintain the pregnancy and also for the preparation of labor
  • Helps mom to feel more comfortable with her changing body
  • Tunes her into her own body, which will also help her to tune into labor and trust her body can labor effectively
