What is a Maternity and Pregnancy Massage?
While pregnancy is a beautiful experience, it can also be quite…exhausting? Uncomfortable? Painful? Let’s face it; pregnancy can be all of the above! That’s why it’s essential to tend to your needs with a maternity massage. You’re a mother, and it’s your job to take care of everybody else. Let someone take care of you for a change. Book a maternity and pregnancy massage in Hartford County at Simsbury Therapeutic Massage & Wellness.
Enjoying a maternity and pregnancy massage in Simsbury is the ultimate form of self-care for expecting and newly-minted mothers. Carrying a life inside of you comes with some additional strain on the body. Depending on where you are in your pregnancy, you may feel pain in areas that never caused any fuss before.
For instance, a child in the womb pulls your center of gravity forward. Your poor back must work extra hard to keep you standing upright. Furthermore, your ankles must support this additional weight bearing down on them. Then there’s the pelvic area that’s supporting the whole operation!
Getting a maternity massage in Hartford County at Simsbury Therapeutic Massage & Wellness will address all of these aches and pains. When you arrive for your maternity and pregnancy massage, you will lay on your side. A comfortable cloud of supportive cushions will hold you in place, alleviating any extra pain on your back or pelvic regions.
Depending on your massage preferences, areas of pain, and other causes of concerns, our licensed therapists will perform Swedish massage and reflexology.
No matter where you are in your pregnancy, our licensed therapists will find the right mixture of pressure and techniques to provide you with comfort.
Benefits of Getting a Maternity and Pregnancy Massage
Perhaps the biggest benefit of booking a maternity and pregnancy massage in Simsbury is that it will help lower your stress levels. Massage therapy affects us on a biochemical level. Research shows that levels of our stress hormone, cortisol, decrease up to 31% after a massage. Furthermore, getting a massage can boost serotonin levels.
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in our brain that acts as a natural painkiller. Therefore, by increasing serotonin levels, you naturally fight off the leg cramps, backaches, and muscle tension that comes with pregnancy.
In addition, massage increases levels of dopamine in the system. Studies on this feel-good neurotransmitter find that dopamine helps regulate sleep. We know what you’re thinking. As a pregnant person or mother of a newborn, you’re scratching your head going, “What is sleep?” Thankfully, we can introduce you to that old friend.
Dopamine plays a crucial role in the production of melatonin. Melatonin is the hormone that makes us go to sleep at night. So, booking a pregnancy massage in Hartford County at Simsbury Therapeutic Massage & Wellness can help you get your sleep in wherever you can get it!
As your stomach grows, you might not be as active as you used to be. That leads to poor blood and lymph circulation. These side effects of pregnancy can cause fatigue, poor skin health, and soreness. In fact, research shows that lymph drainage treatments may lessen the chances of developing edema.
By getting a prenatal massage in Simsbury, our licensed therapists can help improve blood and lymph circulation, which will bring oxygen-rich blood to the areas. Naturally, this reaction will improve muscle tension caused by bearing a child while simultaneously helping you reclaim that glowing skin you had at the beginning of your pregnancy.
That’s why we suggest a lymph drainage treatment to alternate with your pregnancy massage. If not, getting a lymph drainage post-pregnancy would be ideal. It can help you improve the appearance of stretch marks, C-section scars, and rejuvenate skin cells affected during pregnancy.
Is Getting a Pregnancy Massage Safe?
If you are newly pregnant, you should discuss getting a pregnancy massage in Simsbury with your physician. As a pregnant person, you run the risk of circulation or blood pressure problems. Therefore, you might want to wait until the second trimester before getting a massage.
Furthermore, you may want to avoid lying on your back for a massage after 20 weeks of pregnancy. That added pressure may cause more problems with circulation. Plus, it may be uncomfortable to lay.
If you are considering getting a maternity massage in Simsbury, it’s important your physician is aware of the treatments you are seeking. It’s also essential you choose a wellness center you can trust. For almost three decades, Simsbury Therapeutic Massage & Wellness has been providing safe pregnancy massages in Hartford County.
