Benefits of Pregnancy Massage

There are very specific benefits of pregnancy massage. Research supports the following claims about massage:

  • offsets the negative effects of stress on mother & baby
  • lowers blood pressure
  • increases parasympathetic response in body
  • decreases cortisol levels
  • increases serotonin & dopamine
  • decreases anxiety & depression
  • increases systemic & local blood circulation
  • decreases late pregnancy edema in lower legs
  • relieves muscle spasms, cramps & myofascial pain
  • improves labor outcomes

That’s a pretty impressive list. I’m happy to go over more specific studies and details if you’d like to call or meet in person. The point I’m trying to make is that there’s real evidence that pregnancy massage is much more than pampering.

This year I’m offering a different kind of special in honor of mothers. As a certified pre-natal and post-partum massage therapist, I’m happy to offer a discount to pregnant and post-partum women. I’m defining post-partum very loosely: up to a year after baby arrived. If you know any pregnant or post-partum moms, send them in for a massage!
