I have undertaken and successfully completed a post-graduate course in Maternity Reflexology and so am fully qualified to treat pregnant women. Reflexology is a wonderful therapy to have during this very special time. (Reflexology may also be helpful prior to conception).
At the first treatment, a detailed consultation takes place with further information recorded on all aspects of this and any other pregnancies. It may be helpful to bring your pregnancy notes to Reflexology treatments.
Reflexology is a safe and beneficial therapy for use at this time of physical and psychological adjustment.
Some of the discomforts Reflexology may help relieve when you are pregnant include:
- digestive issues
- stress and anxiety
- muscular and joint pain
- skin problems
- sleep issues
and help the body to prepare for labour (including post due-date sessions).
Following the birth of your baby the benefits of Reflexology may include:
- balancing your hormones
- energising your system
- easing muscular and joint discomfort
- help relaxation at this special time
Baby too can benefit from Reflexology. A very gentle treatment is given and it may help following a traumatic birth e.g. forceps delivery or very long labour; to help calm; sleeping and digestive problems. Babies generally sleep well following a treatment.
I do combined new mum and baby treatments and can also show a few simple reflexology points to help your baby too. I can also combine pregnancy massage with reflexology.
