Benefits of Prenatal Massage
Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. At Chiropractic Plus, most of our prenatal clients enjoy the benefits both Massage and Chiropractic treatment provide throughout the entire term of their pregnancy.
Massage therapy relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling). In addition, massage reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages blood and lymph circulation, helps to relax nervous tension-which aids in better sleep-and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.
At Chiropractic Plus, our Newcastle prenatal massage therapists use specialised pregnancy pillows for women who are too far along in their pregnancy to lay face down.
These professionally designed pillows ensure our prenatal clients’ new tummies are well supported, but still “sooooo comfortable” during their treatment.
In fact, most woman are so comfortable on these pillows that they don’t want to get up after their treatment.
Some of the benefits of prenatal massage include:
- Relieves headaches
- Relaxes muscle tension Reduces fatigue
- Alleviates backaches
- Relieves leg cramps
- Reduces swelling/odema
- Relieves pain
- Enhances sleep
The team at Chiropractic Plus consists of ten remedial massage therapists and three highly trained chiropractors – all of whom specialise in prenatal treatment. Our Newcastle prenatal massage therapists often work in conjunction with our chiropractors to provide optimal care for expectant mums.
