Pregnancy Massage: Alleviate Soreness Due to Pregnancy Sooner
What a great experience being pregnant can be. There can also be potential concerns, the troubles of weight gain, muscle pain and joint pain, as well as the aches in our bones. This is such a joyous occasion, as well as one of a challenge. We feel such discomfort and pain. There is a solution. I have recently discovered the luxury of pregnancy massage! This is actually possible! We do need to make sure the needs fit our circumstances.
All the normal feelings of stress and anxiety come to the forefront upon realization that there is now a new human being growing inside, and this child is a huge priority. There is joy and anticipation that goes along with these feelings. Often we can benefit from a pregnancy massage, just as we can benefit from a massage when not pregnant.
So many issues can be helped by going to a certified pregnancy specialist, also known as a pre-natal specialist. The specialist will have special pillows to support the baby, and will know how to properly position the pregnant woman. Deep tissue massage is not appropriate during a pregnancy massage, but can be great at more appropriate times.
Clothing is optional, some ladies prefer clothing (bra and underwear) others prefer towels or sheets for coverage. One important point is that the personal OB/GYN knows that you are considering pregnancy massage. These massages are good for when you are in labor, and are a great bonding experience for you and your husband. Massages when pregnant are not associated with miscarriages or any other complications. They are good for the mother and even after the baby is born, massages can often soothe a baby with colic.
Many mothers, myself included, are unaware of the fact that massages are possible, even helpful during pregnancy. I now know that massages can help eliminate waste products from the mother through the lymphatic and circulatory system, thus giving the mother more energy. Massages can also help with swollen ankles and legs, which any pregnant woman will tell you, are very uncomfortable. During my three pregnancies, I had the usual symptoms, ranging from sciatic nerve pain, stress on my spine, legs, even feet! The exhaustion I felt by the third pregnancy could have been reduced.
To have a massage while pregnant feels like it would be great. To know that my physical pain, stress and anxiety, as well as hormonal issues could have been alleviated by something so good for me is comforting. A calming, refreshing massage I will be seeking if blessed with another child I will be sure to look for a certified pregnancy massage therapist and consult my doctor. I will not go through another pregnancy without one!
