The Benefits of Massage During Pregnancy


  • Improves circulation and oxygen of the soft tissues, and thereby oxygen and nutrient delivery to the foetus. 
  • Aids lymphatic drainage, eliminating toxins, and reducing oedema.
  • Helps avoid varicose veins from developing.
  • Help to keep blood pressure balanced.
  • Reduces muscles tension, which increases during pregnancy.
  • Reduces back pain and leg aches.
  • Reduces joint pain.
  •  Reduces headaches.
  • Reduces sciatic nerve pain common in later pregnancy and other nerve compression.
  • Aid a sluggish digestive tract, helping to avoid hemorrhoids and constipation.
  • Improves Relaxation.
  • Improves sleep.
  • Decreases stress hormones (cortisol) and lowers anxiety.
  • Increases feel-good hormones (serotonin and dopamine) and release of oxytocin, and improves mood and gives a sense of well being.
  • Enhances her relationship with her unborn child – provides support and vital monitoring to the client and her healthcare professionals.



Benefits of Pregnancy Massage For The Foetus

  • Many of the above benefits apply to the foetus also, such as receiving an improved supply of well-oxygenate blood with nutrients for health growth and development. 
  • A relaxed, calm mother will make the growing baby feel secure and decreased levels of cortisol and other stress hormones will be passed onto the baby’s system. 
  • Touch, both pre-natal and perinatal, seems to be formative for both babies and their parents, establishing patterns of intimacy and sociality for life (research by Tiffany Field). Negative touch – touch deprivation, birth and perinatal trauma – has lifelong effects, as do the positive experience of an easy birth and welcoming touch and nurturing. 
  • Babies still in utero seem to actively enjoy touch on the mother’s abdomen, often responding to it with movement.
