  • Address pain in the hips, shoulders and neck that occurs as a result of postural changes.
  • Provide needed rest if sleep is difficult.
  • Decrease the production of cortisol (the stress hormone) and increase the production of serotonin (the happiness hormone) to decrease anxiety and increase a sense of well-being.

Prenatal massage is considered to be safe and beneficial during pregnancy.  However, some precautions are taken during pregnancy to ensure safety. Specifically, acupressure points associated with stimulating contractions and exceptionally deep techniques are avoided.  As with all medical conditions, women that are pregnant and considered to be "high risk" should consult a physician before receiving massage.
