Pregnancy

Specialist Pregnancy Support

Reflexology can give you a real boost when you’re pregnant by helping your body rebalance itself, as it changes rapidly through each month. It can also assist your post natal recovery.

It’s totally safe and really beneficial during pregnancy and can help you with general relaxation and assist with the relief of pregnancy related issues. Generally, it is advisable to start reflexology prior to pregnancy or from the second trimester (13 weeks).

As your body goes through significant changes during your pregnancy you may experience emotional, hormonal and physiological differences to the balance of your body. Reflexology can help to alleviate discomfort arising from this imbalance and restore the body’s natural state of well-being.

Reflexology is a wonderful way of helping you through the myriad of changes of motherhood.  It is, however, not recommended if there is a history of premature labour, severe hypertension, placenta praevia or recent vaginal bleeding. If you suspect any problems in your pregnancy it is important to contact your doctor or midwife.

Reflexology can be used for any of the following reasons during pregnancy:

  • General relaxation
  • Relief of stress and anxiety
  • Increased energy levels
  • Insomnia and sleep problems
  • Reduce heartburn
  • Relieve backache
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • High blood pressure
  • Oedema (swelling, mainly of feet and ankles)
  • Ligament and groin pain
  • Symphysis pubis dysfunction
  • Sciatica
  • Constipation
  • Cystitis.
