The drastic changes that your body goes through in preparation for creating an environment for your baby are many. There are physiological and endocrinological changes that your body endures, which can be a hard adjustment. Misaligned joints or spine are common, as your protruding abdomen and increased back curve, pelvic changes, and postural adaptations are changes that will undoubtedly occur. Making sure your joints and spine are correctly set and aligned will help you in feeling the best during your term. It will also ensure that post-pregnancy, your body is strong enough to slowly transform back, not to mention helping you feel great for future pregnancies as well.

Massages may be the only thing on your mind during your pregnancy. The hour of relief and pampering is beautifully stress-free and calming for your mind. Additionally, massage therapy goes a long way in helping you have a happy pregnancy. Some of the annoyances that occur such as leg pain, back pain, anxiety, poor sleep, stress, depression, and moodiness can all be alleviated by regular massage therapy sessions. The calming environment, movement, and blood flow increase, and relaxation helps restore your body and your mind. Serotonin levels increase, helping you have a ‘feel-good’ vibe, and your body is re-energized, eliminating pain and helping you sleep better. Keep in mind that the massage should be at room temperature, and avoiding heated rooms or saunas is best.
