Spa Services for Mommy-to-be and Prenatal Massage

Pregnancy can be beautiful, but it can also have its challenges. Hormone changes can cause strong emotions and even anxiety and depression. Shifts in circulation, and weight can also cause joint pain and discomfort. Prenatal massage can address all of these issues so that you can feel more comfortable throughout your pregnancy.

Regulate Hormones

Hormones tend to go haywire during pregnancy as your body works to support a developing baby. According to the American Pregnancy Association, prenatal massage can actually lower hormones such as cortisol that cause stress and anxiety. They can also increase serotonin and dopamine hormones. Lowered levels of these hormones are associated with depression. Prenatal massage can help regulate your hormones and boost your mood so that you feel emotionally well throughout your pregnancy.
