Maternity Reflexology is a branch of Reflexology aimed
specifically at women during pre-conception, pregnancy,
labour and the post-natal period.
During your pregnancy, your body will go through
significant changes; these changes will affect the emotional,
hormonal and physiological balance of your body.
Reflexology may help balance hormones and provide relief from symptoms such as morning sickness, tiredness, backache, sinus problems, constipation, circulatory problems (such as swollen ankles) and pelvic pain. It can be used to induce and support labour.
Research has shown that regular Reflexology treatments during pregnancy can shorten the duration of labour, with subjects often requiring less pain-relief during the course of delivery.
