Prenatal Wellness Massage
The role of massage and bodywork has a long and honorable tradition in a woman's journey to motherhood. Stress and transformation are the hallmarks of pregnancy, and how the pregnant woman handles stress will have a great effect on the health of her baby. Prenatal massage was developed to support and respect the physiological systems that may be strained and working overtime to grow the unborn baby. In addition to the therapeutic effects massage offers to the musculoskeletal and circulatory system, prenatal massage can supplement a woman's sense of support, intimacy, and wholeness.
Additional Benefits include:
Supports a healthy utero environment
Elevates mood, encourages loving maternal care
Treats discomfort of pregnancy
Fosters deep breathing, enhances internal respiration
A number of discernible maternal physical and emotional changes occur in the last few weeks of pregnancy that come with the onset of labor. Some changes are easy to recognize while others are happening internally. Prelabor bodywork can assuage a woman's fears by making her more comfortable physically and preparing her body for labor. Manual lymphatic drainage techniques are implemented to reduce swelling in the legs, and myofascial release and moderate stretching help prepare for various birthing positions. Also acupressure is implemented to help stimulate various labor points (Large Intestine 4, Liver 3, Spleen 6) once gestation has reached 40 weeks.
