Massage Therapy Support for New Moms

As we mentioned in our last blog post, August is Breastfeeding Awareness month! Massage therapy is another wonderful tool to support breastfeeding moms, and moms in the post-partum period in general. For a wonderful article about the benefits of massage for post-partum moms, read here

General highlights include:
  • Relaxes tense muscles, improves circulation, and lowers stress hormones
  • Relieve back, arm, shoulder, and neck pain without medication
  • Improve hormone balance
  • Improve sleep
  • Increase prolactin, a lactation hormone, and decrease tension in the chest, breasts, and shoulders, to improve milk production and lactation
  • Reduce swelling

Taken together, these actions can offer vital support to new moms!
