Certified Massage Therapist
Pregnancy massage (prenatal massage) is excellent for keeping your body loose and free of pain. Studies indicate that there are many benefits of prenatal massage. According to the American Pregnancy Association (APA), pregnancy massage can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health. Another way to reduce back pain is to get your partner or friend to accompany you to a massage session to learn how to practice hands on pregnancy pain relief techniques when you are unable to schedule a session. If you are looking for other alternatives, chiropractic visits can help with back pain and acupuncture is excellent for keeping your body balanced and helps prevent you from suffering back, hip, or joint aching. Also, prenatal Yoga can help keep your body loose and comfortable. When seeking any practitioner, you should consider their qualifications for pregnancy bodywork. To ensure that you get the most from your treatment, be sure to drink plenty of fluids and eat a balanced diet throughout your pregnancy.
