Expectant mothers are massaged to reduce back and joint pain, decrease stress and anxiety, and improve restful sleep. Studies from the Touch Research Institute suggest that expectant mothers who get weekly massages have lower levels of the stress hormone (cortisol) and higher levels of the feel-good hormones (serotonin and dopamine). Pregnancy Massage includes side-lying positioning. “High risk” patients require a doctor’s note of approval.
