Prenatal vs. Postnatal Massage


Making a clear distinction between prenatal and postnatal massage therapy can be quite a difficult task given that the two almost involves similar procedures. The most basic contrast however is based on the timing with which the given massage sessions are carried out. Prenatal massage is usually undertaken with the aim of preparing for the childbirth process. This will involves taking care of some of the physical as well as emotional needs which are essential for a less-turmoil childbirth process. Postnatal massage on the other hand will often try to reinstate the mother back to the original situation/condition when no pregnancy is incurred. This will also involve addressing some emotional and physical needs just as it is for prenatal massage. To make a well informed distinction between the two; it is important that each is looked differently so as to get what exactly each one involves.

Prenatal Massage

Prenatal massage is usually undertaken having in mind the need to prepare the mother for the childbirth process. The intensity with which the massaging is done will off course depend on the pregnancy stage the mother is having at the moment. This is especially important so as to cushion the unborn baby from the shocks that may be brought about by the massaging pressure. A well prepared prenatal session will ensure that childbirth goes on with lots of ease and in addition the following benefits can also be accrued.

This is usually brought about the weight of the bay trying to pull downwards. Prenatal massage therapy helps to avoid all these by a greater extent by relieving much of the tension incurred on the affected muscles.

This is achieved by working on the muscles as well as other connective tissues to be brought out a relaxing effect which in the long run will help ease the tension and the emotional fatigue incurred during the pregnancy period.

Timing is an important aspect for post natal massage in that one shouldn't wait for some considerably long time after childbirth to have some massage session. Post natal massage does come with lots of benefits and this is the case provided it is done right taking into consideration all the emotional and physical requirements of the mother.

* After childbirth some tones of stretched skin may be observed especially on the lower abdomen. Post natal massage will at all times work towards ensuring that the normal skin distribution within the lower abdomen is maintained so as to ensure that the mother gain the much needed uniform body as opposed to sluggishness that comes when no post natal message treatment is given.

This is so as the soothing effect that a massage session does produce will at the long run leave a calmer effect on the person who the post natal massage is being applied on.

* Due to contraction of some muscles during childbirth, blood circulation within the body can be greatly affected and this can only be averted through post natal massage. This is so as stretching and contracting some parts of the skin during a massage session helps to rejuvenate the blood vessels thus enhancing blood flow to all to the muscles and other parts of the body.

Some might overlook the value of post natal massage even if the childbirth goes absolutely normal. Still, the body can still undergo some modifications and alignment and affect the muscle tone in the long run.
