Pregnancy Massage

Sciatica is experienced by many women late in their pregnancy because the Uterus has grown so large that it rests on muscles of the pelvic floor and lower back. This Pressure from the Uterus puts Tension on the Muscles, causing them to swell and put pressure on nearby nerves.

Compression of the Sciatic Nerve, the longest and widest nerve in the body, running from the lower back to the foot, is the cause of Sciatica; a deep pain on one side of the lower back/upper buttock, sometimes accompanied by shooting pains, numbness and/or a burning sensation down the leg.

Pregnancy Massage Helps to Reduce and Prevent the occurrence of Sciatica by Relieving the Tension of relevant Muscles.  Many Expectant Mothers have Experienced Significant Reduction in Sciatica during Pregnancy through Regular Massage.  Pregnancy Massage also Stimulates the Release of Endorphins and Serotonin, the Body's Natural Pain Killers, into the Nervous System to Control the Pain, Providing a Natural, Safe, Drug-Free Alternative Choice for Relief, since taking Medications are Often Limited during Pregnancy to Prevent any Side-Effects to the Baby.
