MUMS TO BE & REFLEXOLOGY
Reflexology is an excellent therapy for both conception and pregnancy. Treatments can be used to enhance natural fertility in men and women or it can be used with all forms of assisted conception to help prepare the body and mind. It can help various medical conditions, reduce levels of stress and help to address any psychological or emotional issues that may be affecting your fertility.
Reflexology in pregnancy aims to optimise the physical and emotional health of the pregnant woman. During pregnancy regular treatments provide time for intense relaxation that's great for you and your baby and can help you to prepare your body for labour and birth.
WHAT IS REFLEXOLOGY?
Reflexology is a non-invasive, gentle therapy, and is suitable for all ages to maintain general wellbeing and help restore the body to a balanced state of health. Reflexology supports both physical and emotional health. It is based on the principle that the feet are a reflection of the body. Reflexology is not a foot massage, but a systematic foot therapy whereby specific reflex points on the feet are stimulated with thumb walking, pressure holding and various other techniques. The body is always working to balance itself and reflexology works to create this balance (homeostasis). Imbalances within the body are thought to lead to ailments and physical problems. In reflexology we look to restore the body's natural rhythm and thereby restore its own ability to heal.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A SESSION
During your first session, I will take a short 10 min medical history and chat about your health, diet and lifestyle and any health conditions conditions. This information allows me to make a bespoke treatment plan for you.
During the treatment you will take off your shoes and socks and made comfortable on the treatment couch. During the treatment I use a combination of gentle relaxation techniques, and application of precise pressure points on your feet.
During the treatment, most people feel very relaxed. There may be some tingling sensations in different parts of the body which is normal. The treatment should not feel ticklish or acutely painful although there may be some discomfort or tenderness in reflexes which show an imbalance.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTERWARDS
Typically, following a treatment, the receiver will feel more relaxed and less stressed. Some people will feel very energised and others will feel very sleepy and sometimes even drowsy. Where appropriate, I also offer after-care advice to ensure you achieve the utmost benefit from your sessions. After the treatment some people may experience feel more thirsty, tired or energetic, increased bowel movement or feeling like they are getting a cold. This is a normal reaction and symptoms will usually not last more than 24/48hours. To help ensure toxins are dispelled from the body and to reduce the likelihood of the healing reaction, you are advised to drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol following a reflexology
