Pregnancy is a time of excitement, but sometimes hormonal changes and weight gain can cause discomfort and pregnancy reflexology can help give you time to enjoy your growing baby as well as help with some of the pregnancy related problems such as:-
Nausea and morning sickness
Heartburn and acid reflux
Emotional disturbances and mood swings
Anxiety and stress
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Regular pregnancy reflexology sessions will help support you, encouraging your mind and body to remain in balance, easing minor ailments, aches and pains.
Pregnancy Reflexology is one of the most popular complementary therapies to assists with relieving symptoms or preventing the many discomforts and ailments commonly associated with pregnancy. Offering a natural and safe way of helping you to cope with the rapid changes your body goes through during pregnancy
It improves general well-being, is very pleasant to receive, and induces a deep relaxation so your body can adjust more smoothly to the major changes required at this time. . It can also be combined with Pregnancy Massage for a deeply relaxing treatment.
Pregnancy Reflexology can be used from your first trimester onwards. Studies have shown that starting reflexology by 32 weeks can reduce the need for induction by 70% as well as reduce labour time down to just 4 hours.
Pregnancy Reflexology treatments in the very late stages of pregnancy will help you to become deeply relaxed and during the last few weeks of your pregnancy I use powerful techniques to help promote labour and encourage the birthing process to start.
Priming for Labour
To get the maximum effect of “priming for labour“, I recommend that you schedule an appointment 2 or 3 days before you are due, on your due date, and then again 2 or 3 days past your due date.
Receiving Postnatal Reflexology following the birth of your baby is invaluable for balancing, harmonising and enhancing physical and emotional well being.
Even if you had a straightforward, uneventful birthing experience, your entire system will appreciate being balanced back to a non-pregnant state, and of course after all the hard work you deserve a post-natal reflexology session.
Regular sessions at this time can be beneficial to:
Nurture the mother, giving you time to relax
Ease pain and discomfort
Reduce the incidence of post-natal depression
Aid in healing
Please note: Fertility and Pregnancy Reflexology is a wonderful complementary health support but it is not a substitute for medical and obstetric care, if you have any concerns please do seek medical advice.
