What Are the Benefits of Prenatal Massage?

A visit to Mantra Wellness Centre in Calgary is all about improving your personal health through expert care, and expectant mothers are no exception. There are many benefits to receiving a prenatal massage, both to mother and to child:

  • Reduces Swelling:

By stimulating the lymphatic and circulatory systems, our therapists can help reduce swelling throughout your body.

  • Increased Physical Comfort:

Our treatments help alleviate pain caused by stress on joints and muscular tension that occur due to changes in a mother’s posture made to accommodate the additional weight of a growing child. They also help reduce and prevent sciatica.

  • Improves Emotional Health:

A little time on the massage table goes a long way towards reducing negative stress hormones like cortisol, and increasing positive, feel-good hormones like dopamine and serotonin.

  • Good for Your Baby:

By improving circulation and increasing the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to your baby, our prenatal massage treatments can lend a big hand to your child’s healthy development.

  • Facilitates a Healthier Labour:

Once your pregnancy comes to term, you’ll find that our prenatal massages have greatly helped increase flexibility in the areas of your hips and pelvis, and reduced muscular tension around those areas.

What Position Will I Be in for My Prenatal Massage?

We take positioning seriously, as it is vital to the safety and well-being of both the mother and baby.

If you are in your first or second trimester, it is still safe for your prenatal massage to take place lying flat on your stomach, on the same style of comfortable massage table you already love. Pregnancy pillows and wedges provide extra support and comfort to your body.

And as your pregnancy progresses into the final trimester, your massage treatment adapts to your body as needed. With treatments available in semi-reclined, seated or side-lying positions, many expecting mothers are thrilled to find out that they can still receive deep, satisfying, and therapeutic treatment in these unconventional positions.

What is Prenatal Massage?

Being pregnant comes hand in hand with a lot of aches and pains. While headaches, sore legs, or leg cramps may be expected components of pregnancy, you’ll be happy to hear that you don’t have to just sit there and suffer.

Relax and find comfort thanks to the soothing effects of our therapeutic treatments designed specifically around reducing your body’s pain. We’ll have both you and your baby feeling calmer and more relaxed in no time.

And if you know someone who could benefit from a little care and relief from those aches and pains, a prenatal massage makes a great and thoughtful gift for Valentine’s Day.

Prenatal massage, also known as pregnancy massage or maternity massage, seeks to solve many of the same problems as a regular massage does, but it is specifically tailored to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies.
