Reflexology is safe, non-invasive and compliments all other therapies and treatments.
Reflexology has been found to be beneficial to women at all stages of pregnancy for the prevention or improvement of any imbalance or condition that can occur at this time.
Reflexology has been found to be beneficial for:
Blood pressure regulation (except in cases of pre-eclampsia and eclampsia)
Constipation or any change in bowel movement patterns
Gestational Diabetes (mostly to prevent it)
Nausea and vomiting
Oedema (Functional only)
Urinary tract problems (difficulty to urinate, cystitis, etc)
SPD (Symphysis Pubic Dysfunction)
Weekly, bi-weekly or monthly reflexology sessions during pregnancy can help people maintain their physical and emotional health during pregnancy. A healthy and balanced body is better prepared for the marathon of labour
Reflexology has wonderful benefits during birth and postpartum.
Some people choose to have reflexology prior to a medically necessary induction, during early labour, to help promote sleep during early labour, for a natural method of pain relief or to help aid relaxation and bring more joy into the labour experience if they have received an epidural, etc.
A firm, relaxing reflexology session will immediately remove tension from your body and mind.
