While there are certain activities pregnant women should try to avoid, professional massage therapy is not one of them. In fact, many expectant mothers have found therapeutic massage techniques to be highly effective for:
- Releasing endorphins
- Lowering anxiety levels
- Mitigating back and leg pain
- Improving sleep patterns
- Alleviating stress
- Controlling swelling
- Boosting immune system
- Decreasing blood pressure
- And more
Massage therapy has even been shown to lower levels of the stress hormones cortisol and norepinephrine as well as increase levels of serotonin and dopamine—hormones associated with positive emotions and improved mood. No wonder pregnancy massage is so popular!
