As many expectant mothers soon realise, being pregnant shifts your centre of gravity and places added strain particularly on the back, neck and shoulders. Massage during pregnancy can not only help with the aches and pains associated with your growing baby but can help with the psychological and emotional impact of increasing hormone levels and metabolic changes.
Studies have shown that just 20 minutes of massage twice a week for 5 weeks reduce the stress hormones within the body, improve mood and sleep patterns and reduce anxiety and back pain. During pregnancy your blood volume gradually increases by 35-50% so eliminating the toxins from the blood and lymphatic system through massage is even more important to mother and baby. All of these will have a resultant on your growing baby as the more relaxed you are the more relaxed baby is.
