Why a Prenatal Massage
Preliminary studies suggest that prenatal massage may help to reduce stress, decrease swelling in the arms and legs, and relieve aches and pains in muscles and joints.
In alternative medicine, prenatal massage is sometimes suggested for back pain.
Not only can massage be physically beneficial, but the human touch can be comforting and provide emotional support during pregnancy.
Preliminary studies also suggest that massage therapy may reduce anxiety and depression.
