Maternity Reflexology is a branch of reflexology aimed specifically at women during pre-conception, pregnancy, labour and the post-natal period.
Hormonal imbalances and high levels of stress can often be contributing factors in fertility problems. The aim of reflexology at this stage is to provide a period of relaxation and settle hormonal imbalances by restoring the body’s equilibrium.
During pregnancy, your body will go through many significant changes, some more pleasant than others. These changes can affect the emotional, hormonal and physiological balance of your body.
Maternity Reflexology may help to alleviate some unpleasant symptoms such as oedema or swelling of the legs and morning sickness. It may also help to reduce aches and pains within muscles and joints.
Regular reflexology treatments during pregnancy can provide periods of relaxation which will always be good for both you and the baby and therefore help you to prepare and cope with labour.
Once in the post-natel period maternity reflexology can help your body cope with extra demands on it’s time and energy and balance the emotional and hormonal imbalances in a gentle but powerful way.
