Varicose Veins

The Circulatory System of the Body is under Enormous Stress during Pregnancy, with Blood Volume Increasing up to 60 percent.  As the Uterus enlarges and presses deep into the pelvic bowl, venous return to the heart is hampered by the pressure applied to major blood vessels, increasing blood pressure and decreasing the rate at which Blood Returns from the Legs.  Combine this Increased Pressure on the Veins of the Legs with the fact that Pregnancy causes a rise in Progesterone Levels, making the walls of your Blood Vessels Relax, and you get Inflamed, Visible, Varicose Veins.

Pregnancy Massage Supports the Return of Blood to the Heart and Increases Circulation of Blood and Lymph, Helping to keep Blood Pressure Normal and Reducing the Inflammation and Visibility of Varicose Veins.  The Enhanced Blood and Lymph flow also increases the Nutrition and Elimination of Wastes for both the Mother and her Baby.
