Reflexology can be the perfect treatment for supporting a woman through her maternity journey. A treatment aims to optimise the physical and emotional health of the pregnant woman as well as postnatally, as it can offer many benefits such as aiding relaxation, reducing anxiety and improving sleep.
A treatment can be beneficial throughout the pregnancy journey and a treatment plan will support the woman through the ongoing changes she is likely to experience.
Benefits of Maternity Reflexology
The first trimester sees considerable changes to hormone levels as well as anxieties and anticipation about the future. Reflexology can support with symptoms such as morning sickness, heartburn, constipation & extreme fatigue
You are likely to be feeling a mixture of emotions. Delighted, anxious, exhilarated, emotional and exhausted, all at the same time. A treatment at this stage can help aid relaxation, improve sleep and reduce stress levels.
As the pregnancy progresses, a woman may begin to experience other physical symptoms and stress levels may rise as the labour becomes more imminent. Reflexology can help here with possible struggles with Pelvic Girdle Pain, restless leg syndrome, indigestion, heartburn & back pain
As your due date nears, a bespoke treatment plan is recommended to ensure you are at your optimum level in preparation for labour
We are here to support you through any worries or concerns that you may have throughout the journey. We will also be happy to offer that support once the baby has arrived. A treatment postnatally, when falling hormone levels can leave you feeling low, tearful or anxious can be hugely beneficial and a welcomed break and will offer that rest & relaxation needed to help you feel rejuvenated.
