Importance of Postpartum Massage Therapy

The postpartum period for women starts after childbirth. Since your body has undergone a lot during pregnancy and childbirth, you feel low on energy in the postpartum period. Your physical health and mental health are impacted. Add to that, postpartum depression takes a toll on your overall health causing sudden meltdowns and loss of interest in anything. In these times, body massage begins a process of recovery so that your body and mind can relax and perform better. 

What is postpartum fatigue?

Postpartum fatigue is tiredness faced by women after childbirth. Baby blues after delivery is very common and most women experience anxiety symptoms and postpartum depression (PPD). PPD is characterized by several other problems related to mental health like loss of concentration, lack of appetite and sleep issues. Hormonal changes in your body, added responsibilities of baby care and inadequate rest are some reasons for postpartum fatigue.  Postpartum fatigue and anxiety can be alleviated by taking measures like massage therapy, pelvic exercises and following a confinement period diet or postnatal diet. Prioritizing postnatal nutrition with massage therapy will give the best results that stay with you for your lifetime. 

Why is postpartum massage therapy vital for postpartum women?

Postpartum massage is the full body massage offered to new mothers just after childbirth. Massage therapy releases tension in your back, reduces body pain and helps in postpartum healing. It helps ease you into motherhood by offering both physical and emotional benefits. Massaging your back with the required amount of pressure activates the nerve endings in that area. Delivery massage is generally carried out for 40 days, but you can continue as many days as you wish to avail the maximum benefits. For time immemorial, this tradition of massaging women after delivery is practised and is treated as a significant aspect of our tradition. Japa maids are specialised to carry out massages for postnatal women. They know where to put pressure and where to avoid so you should seek out the help of a trustworthy Japa maid to enjoy the postnatal massage. 

Benefits of Post-Pregnancy Massage Therapy

Better sleep 

Erratic sleep patterns disturb your circadian rhythm. Lack of sleep can manifest into insomnia. When you don’t get enough sleep, your body doesn’t get a chance to recover and restore. Also, lack of sleep results in mental health issues and you feel disoriented throughout the day without inadequate sleep. Massage therapy solves your sleep-related issues and encourages your body to switch off easily. It unblocks your neural pathways and resets you entirely. 

Joy to Muscles 

Massage therapy can release tension in muscles. Muscle and joint pain can make it difficult to go about the tasks. Stiffness in muscles and joints can be treated using deep massages. 

Headache and Fatigue reliever 

Stress and anxiety can result in unbearable headaches. If you are not able to solve your headache and fatigue issues with sleep, then it is better to get massage therapy. The required amount of pressure in your head works positively with headaches and fatigue. You feel rejuvenated and relaxed after a head massage. 

Less tension in the Spine 

You cannot function if you are suffering from backache. A simple task would take a lot of time to perform. And you cannot lift yourself with severe back pain. A full body massage therapy by identifying pressure points can reduce your back pain issues and can enhance your spinal health.

Anxiety and Stress Buster

Anxiety and stress are part of our lifestyle but when prolonged, they reflect poorly on our physical health. Prolonged stress can increase inflammation and inflammation further brings in many chronic and auto-immune disorders. Massage therapy reduces stress and helps you manage its symptoms with ease.
