I have heard that this is good in pregnancy. Does anyone know why? Has anyone tried it out and found it helpful?

There's a bit of anecdotal evidence to show it's good for bringing on labour of you're overdue, don't know about during the normal course of pg though.

I was suggested it post pregnancy by my MW to help reduce swelling and clear things out of my body.
If you think that a massage would be beneficial but don't physically want one then reflexology I guess would be the nearest alternative.

My reflexologist said reflexology is not recommended in pregnancy - only at the end to help induce labour but defo not at any other time in pregnancy.
