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:
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.
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.
