Pregnancy brings a lot of unforeseen and crazy changes. It can be difficult to find relief or to understand the best way to care for our bodies during this time of development. Many women in Melbourne and across the globe have found the answer in therapeutic pregnancy massage.
A pregnancy massage in Melbourne has many benefits for both mother and baby which have been validated by recent studies. It is safe and effective during all three trimesters if it’s performed by a licensed therapist who has been specifically trained in that area.
Pregnancy massage can safely reduce many of the general discomforts a new mum experiences throughout her pregnancy without the use of medications or harsh chemicals. A gentle and relaxing pregnancy massage in Melbourne can reduce anxiety, relieve nausea, and combat heartburn as well as relieve swelling in the ankles and feet. It has also been found particularly helpful in relieving sciatic nerve pain.
Studies conducted by the American Pregnancy Association also found that pregnancy massage during each trimester helps regulate important hormones. It decreases stress hormones, such as cortisol and norepinephrine, while increasing dopamine and serotonin. This regulation of key hormones helps reduce complications during childbirth.
