Cramps & Spasms
Common symptoms that many women experience during pregnancy include potentially intense cramps, spasms, and myofascial pain. This often occurs in the lower back, neck, shoulders, hips, and legs. This can make your pregnancy experience extremely difficult and taxing on your body. Prenatal massage can go a long way in reducing the intensity of these symptoms and decreasing your pain.
Outside of the physical symptoms that accompany pregnancy, it can also take a heavy toll on your emotional well-being. Reduction in sleep, increased stress, depression, and anxiety are frequent occurrences that make life difficult for a pregnant woman. Our prenatal care can assist in improved mood and sense of well-being. This is due in part to an increase in serotonin and dopamine along with a decrease in cortisol levels. Also just receiving some well deserved quiet time can help tremendously.
One of the biggest reasons to look into prenatal massage is that it can help with forthcoming labor. There are techniques that you can learn on the massage table that can potentially lead to an easier and less painful delivery.
