In addition to relaxation, Fort Collins Pregnancy Massage offers many benefits to mom and baby:
-suppression of stress hormones
-better sleep patterns the night following the massage
-boost for mom's immune system
-relief of aches and pains associated with pregnancy
-some relief of pregnancy related swelling in the lower legs and arms
Postpartum massage also has many benefits. Mom is usually very tired from interrupted sleep cycles. Frequently her shoulders and neck are very tight, due to holding and feeding the new bundle. A massage can help mom relax, be able to move her neck again, and also to help with gentle techniques to help to reintegrate the fluids in her abdomen postpartum.
There will be some changes in mom's body from the process of
pregnancy and birth. Mom's abdomen will usually be bloated for weeks
after birth. This is primarily from the extra fluid in the abdomen, and
it also takes several weeks for the uterus to involute significantly.
It does actually shrink back nearly to a pre-pregnant size, which is
great news...it just takes a little time. One of the side-effects many
women don't talk about, though, is stress incontinence issues
postpartum. One of the techniques our therapists have been trained in,
can help with this issue. It is called a 'bladder lift'. It is a deep
tissue technique, performed through the abdomen, which can have
immediate results in helping with stress incontinence. See more on our
page about the
Postpartum Bladder Lift Technique.
