Studies have shown that massage therapy performed during pregnancy reduces anxiety, decreases symptoms of depression, relieves aches and can reduce labour stresses. There are also indications that it has a beneficial impact on the health of the baby.
The studies have shown benefits from increased relaxation and lowered stress. It was noted that in pre-natal massage (twice-weekly massage for as little as five weeks), cortisol and norepinephrine (stress hormones) levels reduced as levels of serotonin and dopamine increased. Serotonin and dopamine are the “happy hormones” and lowered levels of these are associated with depression. There were also benefits seen in cardiovascular health.
