Massage therapy is the scientific manipulation of the body’s soft tissues for the purpose of tissue normalization. A wide variety of strokes and different modalities are used during a massage. Massage is known to affect the circulation and flow of blood, the flow of lymph, reduce muscular tension, and enhance muscle tissue.
Massage studies have shown that touch during pregnancy promotes secretions of hormones that improve pregnancy outcomes and decrease the level of stress hormones. Pregnancy massage techniques are adapted to address the changes a woman’s body goes through during pregnancy. A pregnancy massage is very relaxing for the soon-to-be mother and can be performed as early or as late in the pregnancy as desired.
