reflexology for pregnancy
The 9 months of pregnancy will put your body through intense physical changes and reflexology can help mothers-to-be stay comfortable during this time. It can also help a variety of issues including morning sickness, insomnia, dizziness, aches & pains, anxiety, tiredness and constipation.
I absolutely love helping bumps become babies naturally. It's great to have reflexology throughout your pregnancy, however, if you can only come from 36 weeks it can be used as an excellent tool to help bring on labour naturally.
If you've gone over your due date and you haven't had any reflexology until then, it's still worth getting in touch. I've seen some mothers recently who've only started reflexology once their due date has passed and we've had lots of successful labours without the need to be induced. Please get in touch to see if I can help you too.
As more people struggle with unexplained infertility, reflexology can be used as part of a holistic approach to help couples become families. We'll look at your diet, exercise, lifestyle and other factors that could be having an effect.
Together we can help:
*Balance your hormone levels
*Stimulate endorphin release (your feel good hormone)
*Regulate your menstrual cycle
*Boost your blood circulation
*Improve your sleep
Stress and anxiety can be a huge factor when trying to conceive. The longer you've been trying to conceive, the greater the stress on your emotional and physical state, and a cycle is started. With it's calming and soothing effects, reflexology can be a highly successful method of helping to manage and reduce this.
If you're being treated by fertility professionals, reflexology can also help to enhance these treatments and boost your chance of success.
The Association of Reflexology (www.aor.org.uk) have produced some videos around fertility and pregnancy to help you gain a greater understanding of how reflexology is able to help you:
