Documented benefits of prenatal massage:
My clients report all of these benefits and more. I experienced them during my own pregnancy.
The U.S. government's National Institute of Health (NIH) has documented studies showing that women who received regular prenatal massage had decreased anxiety and stress hormones during pregnancy, less back pain, and fewer obstetric and postnatal complications, including lower prematurity rates.*
The American Pregnancy Association has a good general article about the benefits of prenatal massage. So, in addition to making you happier and more comfortable, pregnancy massage is good for your health and your baby's health.
Please feel free to call me with questions about how (and if) massage can help with specific issues.
