Research studies have shown that women who receive regular reflexology during pregnancy have better pregnancies and have a shorter labour with less intervention and require less pain relief.

Pregnancy Reflexology

During your pregnancy, your body will go through significant changes that will affect the emotional, hormonal, psychological and physiological balance of your body. Although it is an exciting time, pregnancy can sometimes present challenges whilst your body adjusts and learns to cope with these changes.

Reflexology can be a great support for relieving stress and tension; evoking deep relaxation and creating a sense of well-being.

Treatments are provided by midwives who are trained in specialist maternity reflexology for stages of pregnancy.

Pregnancy reflexology may help to alleviate symptoms arising from the following conditions:

  • Nausea and morning sickness

  • Low energy levels/Fatigue

  • Anxiety and stress

  • Heartburn and acid reflux

  • Emotional disturbances and mood swings

  • Insomnia

  • Back ache

  • Constipation

  • Pelvic Girdle Pain/ SPD

  • Sciatica

  • Ligament and groin pain

  • Cystitis

  • Oedema

The Treatment

Following an initial consultation, the reflexology treatment will be tailored to your individual symptoms. Treatments are with specialist maternity reflexologists and midwives which are safe for all stages of pregnancy.

After a treatment you should feel deeply relaxed, and experience improved sleep, better mood, increased energy levels and a sense of overall improved wellbeing.

Depending on your condition, a course of treatments may be recommended with an individualised treatment plan.

We promote continuity of care to support your pregnancy and offer courses of maternity reflexology and comprehensive Pregnancy Wellness Programmes. Our bespoke pregnancy programmes offer clients an in-depth level of support, combining midwifery support with nutritional therapy, wellbeing coaching and reflexology sessions.

Postnatal

Receiving post-natal reflexology following the birth of your baby is invaluable for balancing, harmonising and enhancing physical and emotional well-being.

After the birth of your baby, your entire system will appreciate being re balanced and nurtured through reflexology.

You are welome to book a session just for you, or you can bring your baby with you and book our ‘postnatal mum and baby session’. During this 90 minutes session you will be taught a short baby reflexology routine and then be treated to a nurturing postnatal treatment for yourself.

Regular sessions at this time may be beneficial to alleviate symptoms of common postnatal problems such as:

  • Engorged breasts

  • Stimulate lactation

  • Urine retention

  • Constipation

  • Backache

  • Stress and anxiety

  • Postnatal depression

  • Induce sleep

  • Increase energy levels

  • Pelvic girdle pain
