Motherhood and pregnancy is a very special time in a woman’s life when she needs utmost gentle and loving care. Many women experience anxiety, stress and depression along with body aches, stiffened joints and tiredness. At Opulence Spa, we understand these special issues and we have customized mother-to-be massages designed only for expectant mothers. We also understand the importance of these massages being given with care and by expert, trained therapists only. When you sign up for our Las Vegas massages, our therapist will ask you a series of questions to ensure that you can safely take the massages.
The prenatal massages you can take at our Henderson spa involve the application of mild pressure on specific sections of the body so that blood circulation is improved and the lymphatic system is stimulated. Pregnancy can bring about many hormonal changes in the body and these in turn affect the muscular and skeletal makeup of the mother’s body. Mother-to-be massages can not only ease these changes and relax strained muscles but they also help in making labor and childbirth smoother.
It has been proven that women that receive massages twice a week for about a month and a half show lowered levels of stress hormones like cortisol and norepinephrine while hormones like dopamine and serotonin show a marked increase. This factor is possibly why massages not only relax mothers-to-be but also improve their mood making them feel more contented and secure. Their cardiovascular health is also improved. In this way, these Henderson massages can improve both the physical and mental state of expectant mothers. And these results have been proved by studies conducted by the American Pregnancy Association.
Many women also experience swelling in the joints caused by a buildup of fluid. But massages can help clear away this accumulation along with waste materials by improving circulation in the joints. If you have been experiencing pain and discomfort in the legs, it’s probably because of the weight of the baby on your pelvic floor and lower back. Our Las Vegas massages can help with that too. You will sleep better and feel wonderful, just as nature meant you to feel.
This form of massage therapy can prove to be beneficial to your baby also. That’s because massages can help lower the chances of complications during birth like a low birth weight. But, may we stress that prenatal massages should be given only by trained therapists like the ones we have at Opulence Spa. For more information, contact us and we will tell you all about them.
