Reflexology

What is Reflexology ? 

Reflexology is one of the most popular complementary therapies used by women before, during and after pregnancy.

The initial treatment will include a consultation during which details relating to your health and lifestyle are taken to ensure the suitability of the treatment. This also enables the treatment to be tailored to your needs.  You are fully clothed throughout the treatment except for your feet and you will lie in a position comfortable for your stage of pregnancy, covered in a soft blanket to keep you warm. Soothing music can be played to enhance the relaxation of the treatment.

Gentle thumb pressure is applied in sequence, to each reflex point on both feet.
At the end of the treatment you will be given advice relating to your specific needs and suggestions as to the frequency of future treatments.

Reflexology to support  Fertility

For many women the stress and anxiety associated with trying  to conceive can become all encompassing. Reflexology treatments can be extremely beneficial for dealing with the stress and anxiety attached with feeling overwhelmed.

Reflexology can impact on your general health and wellbeing and provide the relaxation needed to help return the body to a natural equilibrium. This can put you in the best possible condition to conceive.Treatments are wonderfully relaxing and often this alone can provide a sense of emotional support and stress relief.

I will devise a tailor made plan of Reflexology treatments to help increase the chances of you conceiving. This together with suggested  healthy lifestyle choices will help contribute to a positive outcome.

You will also be  provided with an individual aftercare plan which will be based upon your initial consultation and findings during our sessions.

It is important to remember that Reflexology is not a substitute for the help, advice and testing you will get from your GP, hospital or fertility clinic and your ability to conceive depends on the cause of your infertility. We will however work holistically alongside your healthcare professionals helping to balance the body and ease the mind.
