Pregnancy massage Herts is a must for mums to be. It has many benefits for mum and baby,  It can help relax, relieve aches and pains, and help through the changes that the body experiences.

During pregnancy, there are many physiological changes that occur. The extra weight of the growing baby shifts the women’s centre of gravity forward. The body compensates for this as the natural curve of the lower back becomes exaggerated, causing lower back pain, a common problem in pregnant women. In addition, the hormones released during pregnancy can cause the soft tissues of the body to soften. Muscles can become stretched and may become sore and tense.

Massage can help to alleviate stress on weight-bearing joints and the soft tissues of the body, decreasing discomfort like lower back pain, leg cramps, stiffness and tension. It can also help with other conditions such as sciatica, carpel tunnel syndrome, headaches, heartburn and constipation. Pregnancy massage increases blood circulation, which helps bring oxygen and nutrients to both mother and baby. It stimulates the lymphatic system to aid in the removal of toxins.

It is important for women to relax and enjoy carrying their baby. Massage provides time to unwind, reduce anxiety and stress, improve sleep and it also releases ‘feel-good’ hormones. Research suggests massage has an indirect relaxing effect on the baby as the mother becomes less stressed by the release of those feel-good hormones. Commonly, a more relaxed pregnancy and birth is a result of the mother feeling relaxed and as comfortable as possible through her pregnancy.

During pregnancy massage, I would work with you to find comfortable and safe positions to enable me to help relax your muscles and soft tissues which will help you feel the amazing benefits of massage.
