What is Maternity Reflexology?
Maternity Reflexology is aimed specifically at supporting women during pre-conception, pregnancy, labour and the post-natal period.
During your pregnancy, your body will go through significant changes that will affect the hormonal, emotional and physiological equilibrium of your body.
Reflexology may offer many benefits during pregnancy and after birth, such as deep relaxation, reduced anxiety, reduced feelings of stress, improved quality of sleep; and several research studies have been conducted which supports the advantages of having Maternity Reflexology (see below).
Reflexology is safe and effective during pregnancy. It is, however, not recommended if there is a history of premature labour, severe hypertension, placenta previa or recent vaginal bleeding.
Having regular Reflexology during your pregnancy also allows you to focus on yourself and your baby.
