The nine months of pregnancy are beautiful, but they are also extremely tough on the body. From morning sickness to the swollen feet, it’s not so uncommon for expecting mothers to be looking for ways to get as comfortable as possible. While it may not help with the morning sickness, there are so many ways that a pregnancy massage can help provide some relief and therapy to your body.

Here at Inner Beauty Concepts, we provide a wide array of massage services to the Nashua area, but one of the most popular services that we offer is our pregnancy massage. Whether you yourself are pregnant or you’re looking for the perfect gift to give your friend who is expecting, today’s blog is going to cover all of the reasons why a pregnancy massage is something that you consider. Let’s get started.

Manage Back Pain

One of the biggest complaints that happen throughout pregnancy is back pain. Because of the added weight in the belly, the back can suffer. Given that the stomach is only going to continue to grow, it’s guaranteed that the back pains are going to continue. Whether you’re just starting to experience back pain or you’ve been looking for a solution for a while, a pregnancy massage is one of the best ways to relieve yourself of this pain.

Reduce Joint Pain

As we just finished talking about, the added weight of the baby is definitely going to have some effects on your body. Back pain isn’t the only way that your body is going to be hurting from this adjustment. In fact, one of the most likely parts of your body that is going to suffer will be your joints; in particular, your knees. Though a massage may not seem like the first method that you’d turn to to help your knees, it has been proven to reduce joint pain drastically!

Minimize Swelling

A common struggle that women have during pregnancy is due to swelling. Various parts of the body are known for swelling during pregnancy because they’re not used to carrying so much weight and circulation isn’t as great during pregnancy. Well, the good news is that pregnancy massages can help to reduce swelling by massaging the parts of the body that are holding fluid by providing the additional circulation that keeps these fluids moving. Truth be told, this is one of the best ways to reduce swelling during pregnancy.  

Hormone Regulation

The last point that we’re going to cover in today’s blog post is one of the most beneficial: hormone regulation. With the life of your beautiful baby comes an increased flow of hormones that your body isn’t accustomed to, which can lead to some serious highs as well as some very low, lows. If you have been struggling with hormone regulation throughout your pregnancy, scheduling a pregnancy massage is something you should look into.

Over the years, there have been countless studies that have proven that the relaxation element of massages greatly help with regulating hormones and stress management. When you can stop stressing and spend some time relaxing, your mood benefits from it!
