Hormonal regulation is another benefit of pre natal massage. According to medical experts the massage during pregnancy helps in regulating the levels of hormones linked with the relaxation and stress of the pregnant women.

The pre natal massage can popularly be done in two positions one in sitting and second lying on the side or in inclined position. The therapist uses his fingers and palm to stroke the body by putting medium pressure gently on certain areas including feet, low back, shoulders and legs. The trained therapists usually use pressure points that target on improving the relaxation of the body instead of stroking on certain pressure points which can induce unwanted premature contractions.
