While pregnancy massage has all the benefits of "regular" massage, it has been tailored to address more specifically the issues and conditions that a pregnant woman faces.  More time is spent on methods to address low back and hip pain, edema, nausea, heartburn, constipation, etc. 

The U.S. government's National Institute of Health (NIH) has documented studies showing that women who received regular prenatal massage had decreased anxiety and stress hormones during pregnancy and fewer obstetric and postnatal complications, including lower prematurity rates.  (
NIH study and references.)  The American Pregnancy Association has a good general article about the benefits of prenatal massage.

So, in addition to making you happier and more comfortable, pregnancy massage is good for your health and your baby's health.  Please feel free to call me with questions about how massage can help with specific issues.
