Furthermore we have devised our pregnancy massage course to incorporate the common ailments associated with pregnancy. These include leg cramping, lower back pain, oedema of the feet, ankles and lower legs, breathing problems and of course one of the most prevalent issues during all trimesters, nausea and morning sickness. The stimulating effects of the massage strokes help to increase circulation, which will increase the flow of nutrients delivered to the baby via the placenta. Massage aids the lymphatic system by stimulating the white cells of the immune system, encouraging the elimination of waste and toxins, which will help relieve oedema or swelling. Another benefit of receiving regular massage during pregnancy is that the mother can be more aware of her own body, with the increased ability to relax during the 1st stage of labour. This often results in shorter, easier and less painful births and a lower ratio of postnatal complications. Furthermore breast feeding is often more successful due to the increase of Prolactin and mammary development.
