Benefits of Prenatal Massage

Elements Massage Tempe Sep 5, 2016

Massage offers a drug-free, non-invasive and humanistic approach based on the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Massage has many physiological effects.  The benefits of prenatal massage are numerous; the following are just a few:

  • Contributing to shorter labor and reduced tearing for expectant mothers, as well as lessening the need for medication, minimizing depression and anxiety and shortening hospital stays.
  • Enhancing the production of t-cells in the mother and baby.  T-cells are part of the body’s immune system.
  • Decreases edema in the lower extremities by increasing circulation.
  • Increasing circulation, allowing the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs.
  • Specific techniques can reduce pregnancy discomforts, concerns and enhance the physiological and emotional well-being of both mother and baby.
  • Skilled, appropriate touch facilitates labor, shortening labor times and easing pain and anxiety.
  • In the postpartum period, specialized techniques rebalance structure, physiology and emotions of the new mother and may help her to bond with and care for her infant.
