The healing gift of touch during your pregnancy
Massage plays an integral part of prenatal care, particularly during labor.
We know that touch "feels good" and science backs us up: skin stimulation mobilises "feel good" hormones that counteract stress and oxytocin, the "bounding and loving hormone" that - among others - improves the functioning of the placenta as well as stimulates and speeds up contractions of the uterine wall.
The second trimester is the best moment to start receiving regular massages as it alleviates as well as releases the physical and emotional tensions stored in your tissues.
Regular massage balances all the doshas and strengthen the immune system according to Ayurveda.
