The Natural Way to Boost your Health & Well-being
Reflexology is one of the most popular complementary therapies in the UK and dates back thousands of years to Ancient Egypt, India and China. It is based on the principal that there are reflex points on the feet that correspond to every gland, organ and part of the body.
By using a unique technique using thumbs and fingers on these reflex points, Reflexology is used to boost blood and nerve supply to all the glands, organs and parts of the body in order to improve functionality, re-balance and in turn help the body to heal itself. Using these techniques may also help to relax, improve moods, aid sleep, relieve stress and tension and improve the overall sense of wellbeing.
Reflexology is holistic and works on the body as a whole. It is a complementary therapy that works alongside orthodox medicine. Reflexologists do not diagnose or prescribe.
Reflexology for Fertility Issues
For some, the difficulties of conceiving or miscarriage can cause great pain and disappointment.
Reflexology may be useful in helping couples overcome these challenges by reducing stress and tension and encouraging the body to balance itself and achieve homeostasis.
When the body is in this balanced and relaxed state, the conditions for conception are optimal. Preferably, both partners should be included in pre-conception Reflexology. Both the sperm and ova need to be healthy in order to conceive and maintain a healthy pregnancy and Reflexology works to help balance the body to assist with this.
Reflexology is not recommended when a client is undergoing stimulation treatment such as Clomid. Reflexology is a natural treatment that aims to balance the body to produce a single ovum, which is contradictory to the drug therapy.
However outside of this time, Reflexology may help to improve the quality of both the ova and sperm to boost the chances of IVF being successful. It can also be extremely helpful to have the extra relaxation time during the waiting period!
Reflexology is ideal after a miscarriage, as can help to provide comfort during this difficult time as well as encourage the body to re-balance and heal itself for future conception.
For all fertility or hormonal issues, a course of 6 weekly treatments is highly recommended in order to get the body back into balance as soon as possible.
A course of 6 x weekly treatments is available with a discount of 12.5% on the overall cost and is available to buy online as a Pass by clicking here or by contacting me directly.
Reflexology during Pregnancy
Maternity Reflexology is a natural therapy aimed at women during pre-conception, pregnancy, labour and post-natal periods and works to help balance and support the body during this time of significant change.
Customising every session to each stage of the pregnancy, Reflexology may help to ease many common pregnancy-related issues such as sickness, backache, heartburn, swelling etc.
The aim of Reflexology treatments during pregnancy are to:
- Maintain health and well-being
- Help the mother to cope with her rapidly changing hormone levels
- Encourage the efficient removal of bodily waste and to stabilise fluid levels
- Maintain strength and support and keep joints supple
- Promote growth and change
- Maintain a feeling of calm
During pregnancy, it is not just the expectant mother who enjoys the relaxing approach of Reflexology, but also the unborn baby, who often becomes active during the treatment session.
Partners may also benefit from the relaxation benefits of Reflexology.
After the baby is born, new mothers may gain great benefit from Reflexology treatments, which again, aims to help with the physical and emotional changes that are occurring.
Maternity Massage is also available.
The costs for both Maternity Reflexology and Maternity Massage are exactly the same as for regular treatments. Offers are available for multiple pre-paid treatments by purchase a Pass and can be bought online by clicking here or by contacting me directly.
Please note that treatment is only offered to those committed to regular sessions throughout their pregnancy. I no longer offer one-off treatments to those past 37 weeks of pregnancy.
