Maternity Spa Treatments: Pregnancy Massage

People have espoused the therapeutic benefits of massage therapy since at least 3000 B.C. but the practice for pregnant women and their newborns is a fairly new discovery for many women—and is rapidly catching on.

During pregnancy, a woman’s skeletal structure increasingly supports more weight and her organs shift to accommodate her growing baby. The journey can be uncomfortable. A massage therapist can do very specific muscle manipulation throughout a woman’s pregnancy to alleviate discomfort in many areas of her body.

Pregnancy massage can bring relief to some of the most common complaints of pregnancy including heartburn and indigestion, hemorrhoids, morning sickness / nausea, sinus congestion, high blood pressure, and varicose veins. Massage can also improve circulation and even make pre-term labor less anxiety provoking.

A typical massage session takes at least 55 minutes and can go on up to 85 minutes. The mother is supported with pillows as she lies on her side if she opts out of the pregnancy massage bed. It is best to avoid eating a large meal before the massage or drinking large amounts of liquids.


Pregnancy Massage is a wonderful way to help alleviate many of the discomforts, as well as promotes a sense of well-being. To be more detailed, prenatal massage brings the following benefits:

– Reduces swelling in hands, feet and ankles.
– Calms the baby and the mother to be.
– Eases muscular discomforts in areas like the low back and neck, calf cramps, helps with tension and tightening that can be experienced throughout the body, lessens sciatic pain.
– Tones lose muscles, relaxes tense muscles and can help increase flexibility.
– Helps with stretch marks.
– Helps with relaxation which in turn can decrease insomnia.
– Increases blood and lymph flow which can help increase the elimination of toxins through the ulatory and lymphatic systems, help with fatigue.
– Increases oxygen in the blood, sometimes on up to 10-15% after a massage.
– Strengthens the immune system
– Stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers, into the brain and nervous system.
– Helps relieve anxiety or depression.
– Helps increase blood circulation, which in turn delivers more oxygen and nutrients to the mother and baby.
– Can be used during the birth as well as after making both experiences easier and more comfortable.
– Eases stress mothers often feel after the birth.
