Load Balancing HTTPS/SSL requests

I think I posted this in the wrong forum before so apologies for the repoeat posting!  I have a question about load balancing HTTPS requests, it appears to me that in order for nginx to handle https you must supply it with the relevant certificates and keys. Does this mean tha nginx will be decrypting the https message before forwarding it to the required location? I don't really want the overhead of this decryption in the load balancer so really need to know what's going on here.

Thanks in advance for any help.
