Expecting a little one?
Here are few reasons why you should book a pregnancy massage with A Healing Touch:
🧖♀️Relieves muscle and joint pains. In a 2010 study, it was found that pregnant women who received massage therapy for about 20 minutes per week for 5 weeks experienced relief from upper and lower back pains, leg cramps and hip joint pains that are commonly experienced during pregnancy.
🧖♀️Boosts immunity for mother and baby. Massage improves blood circulation, which enables oxygen and nutrients to be distributed throughout the body, while toxins are flushed away. For pregnant women, this means both mother and fetus receive nutrients needed for health, while the immune system is strengthened.
🧖♀️Helps maintain good posture. During pregnancy, your body changes alignment. Whether it’s a small or a huge baby bump, the extra weight from the baby changes your centre of gravity.
🧖♀️ Regular massage increases muscle flexibility, which can enhance your posture and overall ability to carry that additional weight while keeping your legs and back strong.
🧖♀️Improves relaxation and sleeping habits. You know one of those ‘happy hormones’, endorphins? During pregnancy massage, the body releases endorphins that help the mother stay relaxed and at ease. This is also linked to better sleep quality, which is important for both mum and baby.
🧖♀️Lowers likelihood of prematurity. Stress is a big no-no for pregnant women, because when the stress hormone cortisol is released, it could give a signal to birth the baby even when it’s not yet full term.
