Pregnancy comes with a lot of joy and happy expectation, but the physical discomforts and heightened risks for mood swings and depression aren't easily ignored. This is why many moms-to-be are now turning to Everest Health for professional prenatal massage in Calgary. Select massage techniques are safe during all three trimesters as long as you are placed in a safe position and the massage is completed by a certified massage therapist with advanced training. Most women without high-risk pregnancies can safely enjoy the benefits of massage therapy in Calgary.
Some of the benefits of prenatal massage include mood and hormone regulation, reduced swelling, improved blood circulation and less muscle, joint and back pain. Many of these benefits come from the effective relaxation of tense, tired and overworked muscles, joints and ligaments. As your body releases tension and your mind relaxes, the impact of stress on your system is lessened. Routine treatments from a well-trained Calgary massage therapist can reduce your risk of depression, anxiety and damaging stress responses. Not only is this healthier for you, but it can help your baby develop healthfully in a tension-free environment.
Benefits of Prenatal Massage
It’s common for pregnant women to feel sluggish and fatigued, especially if their legs are swollen. They can have trouble sleeping and the weight of the baby complicates the simplest of movements. A relaxation massage can help stimulate greater energy by improving blood, relieving aches and pains, and easing insomnia. A prenatal massage can stimulate hormones that reduce the risk and severity of postpartum depression. If you want to stimulate greater circulation health for you and your baby, schedule a prenatal massage in Calgary today.
Most people will benefit from a massage treatment. However, there are some conditions that are contraindicated for massage therapy. This is a reason for the therapist to take a thorough client's medical history. Massage therapy is a great way to care for chronic injuries, soft tissue disorders, repetitive strain, and stress management. People with physically, mentally, and emotionally demanding occupations have found significant relief through this modality.
