Pregnancy massage

Massage during pregnancy is also a great way to relieve everyday tension and the general aches and pains your body is suffering.
Infant massage lessons, led by a qualified practitioner, last 60-90 minutes and are usually held in the home with any family members in attendance who will be regularly caring for the child. For most situations, side lying or semi-reclining positioning are the optimum choices for comfort and safety during the latter half of pregnancy. Assuming that there are no contraindications, massage is safe from conception all the way through labor. There are a number of conditions which can make massage contraindicated, such as Edema, Hypertension, preterm labor, Thrombophlebitis (blood clot), cancer, type 1 Diabetes and infectious disease.
The reality is miscarriages are very common during the first trimester and can occur whether or not a woman has ever had a massage.
Properly trained prenatal massage practitioners can safely and effectively address first-trimester concerns, such as tiredness, nausea and general aches and pains.

A pregnant women’s body is in a state of constant change, therefore, every session is tailored specifically to individual needs. Pregnancy massage relaxes your ligaments, allowing more pelvic mobility for your growing baby. Even if you aren’t with child, massage does amazing things as far as helping to balance hormones, but for pregnant women this is especially important. Edema (swelling) is another lovely effect that accompanies pregnancy, the main cause of this is poor circulation which leads to water retention.
Even when a birth has gone as smoothly as possible, a woman's body still must undergo quite a bit of structural realignment and Postpartum massage helps restore your muscle tone in the abdomen and reposition the pelvis.
Almost all women (and probably all fathers) who have had babies will testify that pregnancy sends your hormones on a wild ride. When you are pregnant your body is attempting to pump twice the amount of blood through your system than it is used to; specifically the inferior vena cava, whose job is to return blood from your lower body back to your heart.

Prenatal is usually done with smooth, fluent strokes (derived from Swedish Massage), in the side-lying position (to avoid pressure on the abdomen), with pillows and bolsters under arms, belly, and between legs for support and comfort. Massage during pregnancy not only makes a woman feel pampered and more emotionally grounded, but offers undeniable physical benefits as well. Massage helps reduce stress hormones (norepinephrine and cortisol) which are related to depression; a very common occurrence in pregnant women. Massage helps push the blood back up to your heart and reduce collection of fluids in swollen areas; therefore lessens uncomfortable swelling.
