The Truth About Pregnancy Massagebook_a_pregnancy_massage

Scientific research repeatedly shows the benefits of pregnancy massage. We’ve seen these benefits time and again with our massage specialist having massaged nearly 4,000 pregnant women. Regular Mumanu massages (every 1-3 weeks) will help you:

  • Decrease depression & anxiety
  • Decrease leg pain and back pains
  • Decrease stress hormones resulting in a calmer baby
  • Less likely to birth prematurely
  • Less likely to suffer postnatal depression
  • Improved blood flow
  • Improved lymph circulation reducing oedema

“Studies done in the past 10 years have shown that hormone levels associated with relaxation and stress are significantly altered, leading to mood regulation and improved cardiovascular health, when massage therapy was introduced to women’s prenatal care. In women who received bi-weekly massages for only five weeks, hormones such as norepinephrine and cortisol (“stress hormones”) were reduced and dopamine and serotonin levels were increased (low levels of these hormones are associated with depression). These changes in hormone levels also led to fewer complications during birth and fewer instances of newborn complications, such as low birth weight. The evidence points strongly to maternal and newborn health benefits when therapeutic massage is incorporated into regular prenatal care.” American Pregnancy.org
