Women may need more help with relaxing. Massage can lower the stress hormones and in turn reduce anxiety, improve mood, and lead to better sleep.
Massage can also help release general musculoskeletal tightness, including lower back pain, which can be common during pregnancy.
Pregnancy massage can be a relaxing and safe way to help improve your physical and emotional wellbeing. Through releasing endorphins and serotonin, it can also provide natural pain relief.
