Pregnancy Massage in Poole

The benefits of pregnancy or pre-natal massage include a wide range of physiological, emotional and psychological benefits.

Pregnancy massage creates a combination of relaxation and stimulating messages to the receptors that prompt a woman’s body to effectively function during her pregnancy. Assists in remedying many of the common discomforts experienced during pregnancy such as:

  • Muscular discomforts, lower back pain, upper back pain, headaches, leg cramps, sciatica, stiffness, tension and knots, carpal tunnel syndrome, heartburn and acid reflux, fatigue, varicose veins, nasal congestion, shortness of breath, edema of the lower extremities, neck pain, interscapular pain, sciatica and hip joint pain
  • Edema, or swelling of the joints during pregnancy is often caused by reduced circulation and increased pressure on the major blood vessels by the heavy uterus. Massage helps to stimulate soft tissues to reduce collection of fluids in swollen joints. This also improves the removal of tissue waste carried by the body’s lymph system.
  • Alleviates stress on weight bearing joints and musculo-fascial structures
  • Increases blood circulation, providing more oxygen and nutrients to both mother and foetus, stimulating the lymph system and increasing immunity.
  • Stabilises hormonal levels and helps relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes
  • Soothes and relaxes the nervous system by releasing endorphins into the mother’s body. Thus, the expectant mother feels more relaxed and at ease, also allowing her a better sleep at night
  • Supports the return of blood to the heart and increases blood flow to the uterus and placenta. With the enormous demands placed on the circulatory system during pregnancy, blood volume may increase up to 60 percent compared to pre-pregnancy levels. As pregnancy progresses and the uterus enlarges and presses deep into the pelvic bowl, venous return to the heart is hampered.
  • Prepares the mother to be for an easier delivery with its sedating effect on the nervous system, promoting relaxation and stress relief
  • Offers a natural, safe, drug free alternative for pain relief, since taking medications are often limited during a pregnancy for the sake of the unborn child
  • In addition to the physical benefits, prenatal massage provides expecting women with the emotional support and nurturing touch provided by non-sexual human touch and energy
