3 Benefits of Getting a Postpartum Massage

We live in a society today where individuals are consistently working and being physically active. There are a variety of ways that many keep busy on a daily basis (including exercising, hiking, sports, and physical demanding work). It is important for the human body to be as relaxed as possible to perform at optimum levels.

New mothers in specific have to readjust to how their body currently feels after giving birth. Today we are going to discuss 3 amazing benefits to getting a postpartum massage. When you are seeking to give your body the appropriate attention that it deserves, you will appreciate this.

Reducing stress (mentally and physically) 

It is very common that new mothers experience a ton of stress before and after giving birth. Stress can occur both mentally and physically, which is why postpartum massages are highly recommended to new mothers.

Many new mothers inquire our team when is it appropriate for them to start receiving a postpartum massage. We always recommend that new mothers can start at their earliest discretion.

If for any reason that your breasts and/or abdomen are still sore, your therapist is trained to position you in a comfortable manner. If you are still experiencing maternal complications, we recommend that you consult with your physician/medical provider first.

Improve breastfeeding to your infant 

We understand that breastfeeding is one of the most important elements to raising a newborn. Nonetheless, to the mothers that choose to breastfeed it could be a challenge in the beginning. Postpartum massages are capable of increasing circulation in a new mother’s body. Studies have shown that a postpartum massage also increases prolactin levels (a lactation hormone that is vital to producing breast milk).

Getting better sleep daily

With a newborn in the home many parents tend to have bad sleep tendencies until they adjust accordingly. Many new moms are still fatigued after being in labor and delivery. The postpartum massage relaxes the new mothers mind and body simultaneously. Many of our clients tend to sleep during the massage, which carries over to their regular sleep tendencies at home.

There are several benefits to massage, but check with your medical provider before starting a massage regimen, discuss with them how long postpartum you should wait before getting a massage. You should also make sure to discuss whether or not you can have a full body massage or if there are parts of your body that should not be massaged.
