I use pregnancy reflexology to help and support women as their bodies change throughout pregnancy. I am qualified to practise pregnancy reflexology, which can be given in the first trimester (by a fully trained practitioner). I believe in using pregnancy reflexology to help consolidate pregnancy by encouraging the production of necessary hormones and calming the body, aiding it to return to a state of equilibrium. I have found it to be especially helpful with sickness/nausea during this time too.
Reflexology is looked on favourably by gynaecologists and obstetricians like Dr Gowri Motha, who is a great advocate in her book, Gentle Birth Method.
I believe that using pregnancy reflexology with expectant mothers can help them relax and increase circulation to areas of the body that most need it, such as the pelvis, hips and lower back. I see a marked reduction in pain in this area following reflexology sessions.
Pregnancy is such a special journey, treatments will give you some well deserved you time, encourage relaxation and help ease pregnancy niggles, whilst preparing you for birth. All treatments are tailored individually depending on your circumstances and where you are in your pregnancy.
