pregnancy, preconception care, postnatal care & infertility

"reflexology is the perfect holistic treatment for fertility and pregnancy"

As a Mum I have experienced the desire for a baby, the struggle of becoming pregnant, and the joys (and discomforts) of pregnancy.

Reflexology is the perfect holistic treatment for fertility, pre-conception care and pregnancy. Safe, gentle, non-invasive and extremely relaxing reflexology can assist in balancing hormone levels and preparing the body for its most important role!

During the special journey of pregnancy it is essential we feel emotionally healthy too. Reflexology can be an important tool in the combat of stress and anxiety.
Optimum Nutrition Before, During and After Pregnancy
Patrick Holford and Susannah Lawson

"Stress is an everyday fact of life in the 21st Century, but when you're trying to conceive, too much can reduce your fertility and play havoc with your health... (in times of stress) bodily systems like reproduction and digestion can become neglected. Stress also uses up stores of nutrients - especially B vitamins - which are crucial for a multitude of functions, including fertility."

pregnancy

Reflexology helps to ease the associated conditions, ensuring it is the amazing experience it should be!
  • Reduce nausea and vomiting
  • Normalise high blood pressure (hypertension) as well as low blood pressure
  • Eliminate oedema - swelling in the legs, ankles and feet
  • Improve lymphatic drainage
  • Relieve heartburn
  • Relieve reflux
  • Reduce insomnia or interrupted sleep
  • Reduce headaches
  • Help circulation and nerve flow to the spine; reducing back, sciatic and hip pain
  • Aid digestion, which not only improves bowel movements and relieves constipation but also improves absorption of nutrients for you and baby
  • Improve oxygen flow to the baby and placenta
  • Reduces anxiety and stress that can occur during pregnancy
  • Normalise hormonal imbalances
  • Decrease sensitivity in breast and mammary glands
  • Alleviate sluggishness and increase energy levels
  • Assist with inducing labour if overdue, reducing the need for medical intervention
Reflexology is also very beneficial for the emotional changes. It is common to have feelings of concern for all the changes that take place during pregnancy; anxiety for the health of the baby, thoughts of the birth, the difference in lifestyle once the baby comes, relationship dynamics, and fears of not being a good a parent are a few of the worries voiced by my clients. Reflexology can help to calm the sympathetic nervous system helping us to think clearer and feel more in control of our thoughts.

preconception care

"Although not medically proven, many women have found reflexology has helped them to conceive. This may be partly due to the treatment reducing stress levels. However reflexologists believe it is possible to access the endocrine system through the foot reflexes and therefore help balance the hormonal system." www.ninemonths.com.au

infertility

"Reflexology, sometimes known as zone therapy, seems to have a particularly good record in treating infertility, especially in women, although it can be useful for both partners, particularly when stress is a factor. It is very good at treating menstrual problems and it has succeeded in treating apparently untreatable infertility in women." Nicky Wesson, Alternative Infertility Treatments, Vermilion Publishing
