Massage For Moms

Pregnancy massage from Longmont based Blue Skies Massage has a host of benefits

There are easy pregnancies, hard pregnancies, and normal pregnancies. Normal being ‘really, really hard’.

Some women glow… they don’t put on extra weight, they don’t suffer in labor, their kid sleeps through the night from day one. We don’t hate you, we just don’t get it!

Most of us feel hungry, nauseous and drained during our first trimester, achy and uncomfortable in our second, and before the 40th week arrives we are tired of waddling around while carrying a bunch of extra weight and just can’t wait to meet the little being in our bellies. All of us though have the same goal- to give birth to a happy, healthy baby!

Massage during pregnancy not only releases tight hips and soothes sore feet but has a host of benefits – for both you and your baby, too. Prenatal massage facilitates many physiological processes which then support your body in the HUGE task of making a healthy baby. And every massage will relax you into a blissful state which also increases the well-being of you and your baby.

Studies indicate that massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health.

Massage therapy addresses different needs through varying techniques, one of which is Swedish Massage, which aims to relax muscle tension and improve lymphatic and blood circulation through mild pressure applied to the muscle groups of the body. Swedish Massage is the recommended prenatal massage method during pregnancy because it addresses many common discomforts associated with the skeletal and circulatory changes brought on by hormone shifts during pregnancy.
