For women who are pregnant, there are numerous benefits from prenatal massage therapy. One study at the University of Miami School of Medicine suggests that massage therapy during pregnancy may lower anxiety, decrease back and leg pain, improve sleep quality, and decrease levels of the stress hormone norepinephrine. In another study of pregnancy massage in depressed women, researchers found that prenatal massage therapy increased levels of the feel-good hormones serotonin and dopamine, decreased levels of cortisol (an indicator of stress) and resulted in an overall improvement in mood.
