PREGNANCY MASSAGE IN HONOLULU
A pregnancy massage can reduce stress and anxiety, improve oxygenation of soft tissues and muscles, and give pregnant women a good night’s sleep. It also enhances labor results and newborn health.
Why is Pregnancy Massage Important?
Those who received massage at least twice a week for five weeks increased beneficial hormones including dopa mine and serotonin while decreasing stress hormones such as norep inephrine (increases heart rate and blood pressure) and cortisol (a crucial hormone to protect overall health and well-being). This helps to boost mood and improve cardiovascular health contributing to an overall healthy pregnancy.
Studies have shown that hormone levels linked with relaxation and stress are altered when massage therapy is introduced to a woman’s prenatal care.
Special care is taken into consideration for patients receiving prenatal massage. Clients will most likely be lying on their side and the therapist might use specifically designed pillows to help support their knees and feet.
