About to Be New Parents? You Need a Massage!

Elements Massage Chandler West Jun 2, 2015

Before a baby arrives, there are many items to worry about including fretting about the responsibility involved in taking care of a tiny, helpless human. During the course of pregnancy, both the mom and dad-to-be can experience a wide range of highs and lows including physical changes and many emotional ups and downs.

To promote a healthy sense of calmness and to help alleviate some of the stress and worry involved in the prenatal phase of a pregnancy journey, a massage is an excellent tool to nurture the mind and body connection while also encouraging relaxation during this special time. Both parents-to-be can benefit from melting away the tension and stress of preparing oneself to take on the exciting task of becoming a parent.

For the Papas

Although the physical demands of pregnancy are far lesser on the father than the mother, there are still many difficulties and sympathy symptoms that papas-to-be can face. Maintaining a happy and supportive relationship can take a lot of energy and it is important to find a sense of inner-harmony in oneself in order to meet the needs of a pregnant partner.

Other benefits of a massage for the male partner include:

  • Reduces production of stress hormone, cortisol
  • Improves immune system functioning
  • Boosts energy levels
  • Alleviates anxiety
  • Releases bodily tension
  • Achieves more centered and balanced sense of wellbeing

For the Mamas

Prenatal massage can address specific physical conditions related to pregnancy but also is a tool that can instill a sense of wellbeing and induce relaxation, two key components for a happy and healthy pregnancy.

Other benefits include:

  • Reduces back and joint pain
  • Increases production of endorphins and serotonin
  • Can nurture relationship with baby
  • Alleviates headaches and other bodily pains
  • Boosts circulatory systems function
  • Heightens relaxation and can help promote sleep

As new parents-to-be, now is the perfect opportunity to take a moment from getting prepared and book a session to relax and take a break before the parenting journey begins!
