Pain Reduction The centre of gravity is realigned over the hips as the abdomen expands outward. Some patients experience low back, pelvic, neck, shoulder, or sciatic nerve pain as a result of the tension on their joints and muscles. These aches can be relieved with professional prenatal massage therapy. It has been shown in studies to help with leg and back pain during pregnancy. Swelling is reduced. Edema, or swelling, is also common during pregnancy. The fluid buildup is particularly noticeable in this area because the uterus grows, it puts pressure on the veins in the legs, ankles, and feet. Massage may aid in the reduction of fluid retention. More Restful Sleep Due to physical discomfort as well as tension and anxiety, sleeping problems are prevalent at all stages of pregnancy. Massage may aid with insomnia and sleep quality during pregnancy. Relaxation and Stress Reduction Prenatal massage is also used to boost mood and enhance overall well-being. For example, in one study that measured pregnant women's stress and immune system function, women who received a series of prenatal massages showed significant decreases in stress hormone levels and enhanced immune function.5 Additional research shows that prenatal massage can reduce feelings of depression and anxiety. Both professional massage therapy and massages from a partner can help decrease depression, anxiety, stress, and even preterm delivery. A 2012 study showed an association between a prenatal massage and decreased depression, as well as higher infant birthweight
