Maternity Massage

Many Benefits to a Maternity Massage

Massage during pregnancy is therapeutic bodywork which focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of the childbirth experience. It is a fast-growing field in the United States that has attracted the interest of labor and delivery nurses, nurse-midwives, childbirth educators and obstetricians. Massage therapy enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue.

The popularity of prenatal massage is the result of a trend toward a higher level of wellness, especially during pregnancy.  Many women are postponing childbirth until they have achieved other goals, such as careers and relationships.  Because of this, pregnancy is anticipated and enjoyed to its fullest for the wondrous experience it is.  Today’s pregnant women – along with other health care consumers – are looking for alternative approaches to support traditional health services.
