Pregnancy is a joyous experience for most expectant mothers — your growing and changing shape is one of Mother Nature’s most incredible occurrences. Sometimes, these drastic changes to the body during pregnancy will cause pain and discomfort. SW Massage and Wellness Centre offers South Calgary Prenatal Massage Therapy to relax your tense muscles, ease any sore spots, improve your circulation and increase your mobility to help you feel better throughout your pregnancy.
Carrying your baby for nine months can have an impact on your musculoskeletal system. The weight of your growing baby changes your center of gravity which places stress on your upper and lowers back neck, abdominal muscles, and shoulders. Pregnancy hormones will relax your ligaments which cause joints to become less stable, often pulling your pelvis forward. This action often results in chronic and acute lower back and hip pain. Pregnancy can be a very stressful time, both physically and emotionally for a mother-to-be. Documented evidence suggests very high levels of stress may increase the risk of pre-term labor and lower birth weight of the newborn. Studies also suggest prenatal massage therapy may reduce anxiety and decrease symptoms of depression, in addition to relieving pain, muscle aches and joint pain.
