"Being touched and caressed, being massaged, is food for the infant. Food as necessary as minerals, vitamins, and proteins."
- Dr. Frederick Laboyer
As an Infant Massage Instructor, teaching parents and care givers how to massage their infant for teething, colic, gas, constipation, lack of sleep, and so much more. It is a wonderful bonding time for parents and their children. It teaches them the difference in good touch vs. bad touch. They have a better body image growing up and are more self-aware; they will also become more flexible and have better muscle tone, which will help in sports later on in life.
"Bonding is a unique relationship between two people. It is specific and endures through time."
- M. Klaus
Touch is an important aspect of human life. This basic sense is the first to develop in the womb and it has a tremendous effect on us. 70 % of seniors who are massaged regularly also receive the many benefits of massage therapy. They are more alert and aware of their surroundings. They are also less likely to become depressed. Many seniors are touch deprived. Getting regular massage gives them the human contact they desperately need to thrive.
If you have any questions or would like to schedule a massage, please feel free to call us!
I look forward to seeing you soon!
Can massage help with my pregnancy? Who should I trust when it comes to prenatal massage? When can prenatal massage be beneficial during my pregnancy? These are the most common questions mommies-to-be have concerning prenatal massage for the first time.
Benefits of Prenatal Massage:
One of the great benefits of prenatal massage is that hormones such as norepinephrine and cortisol, the stress hormones, are reduced. Also, with prenatal massage dopamine and serotonin levels are decreased, which can reduce the chance of postpartum depression. Safe changes in hormones can lead to decreased risks while giving birth and also help against complication such as a lower birth weight in a newborn.
Swelling in the joints or edema is a common occurrence during pregnancy. This can be caused by increased pressure on the blood vessels by the growing uterus and reduced circulation. Massage stimulates the soft tissue causing a reduction in the fluids around the swollen joints.
Improvement of Nerve Pain:
Sciatic nerve pain is experienced by most women throughout their pregnancy because the uterus begins to expand and rest upon the muscles of the lower back. Massage addresses the inflamed nerves by helping to release the tension on the muscles. Many women have experienced significant reduction in sciatic nerve pain during pregnancy through regular massage.
More Benefits of Prenatal Massage:
- Reduced back pain
- Reduced joint pain
- Improved circulation
- Reduced muscle tension and headaches
- Reduced stress and anxiety
- Deeper more restful sleep
Who should you trust with prenatal massage?
This is an important question, because most massage schools only teach the basics of a prenatal massage and do not actually certify their students. Step one is to consult your OBGYN or primary prenatal doctor, this is a great step and information you share with your massage therapist, this way they can work together and ensure a safe and more relaxed pregnancy. Step two is to find a massage therapist who is certified in prenatal massage and also has clientele who requires prenatal massage. (A certified prenatal massage therapist has received education beyond the national standards and will know how to address specific pregnancy needs and areas of the body that are sensitive.) The massage therapist at Kyd Kyro is both certified and experienced in prenatal massage!
Next Step - Getting Started!
Most women can receive massage at any point during their pregnancy, although most massage therapist and OBGYN's request that you are past your first trimester, due to the increased risk for miscarriage during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. We take all precautions regarding our patient's health and safety, (consult your OB if you are not certain.) Prenatal massage a wonderful way to ensure a more relaxed and stress free pregnancy!
