A pregnancy massage is a traditional full body massage that relaxes the body, stimulates circulation and calms the mind. During this massage, we pay extra attention to common pregnancy aches such as relieving leg cramps and low back aches. It is not recommended to have this massage in your first trimester.
Benefits of Pregnancy Massage
Studies suggest that massage therapy for pregnant women might have multiple positive effects, including:
- Lowered anxiety
- Decreased back and leg pain
- Improved sleep
In another study of pregnancy massage in depressed women, researchers found:
- Increased levels of the “feel-good” hormones serotonin and dopamine
- Decreased levels of cortisol, an indicator of stress
- An overall improvement in mood
