Background to Reflexology
Reflexology is based on the principle that reflex points on the soles, tops, and sides of the feet correspond to different areas of the body. In this way, the feet can be seen as a ‘map’ of the body. By applying specialised massage techniques to specific reflex points using the thumbs, fingers and knuckles.
This treatment is suitable for women from 37 weeks of pregnancy onwards. It is specially adapted to help create the best internal environment to support natural labour and birth. Although most effective when first received at 37 weeks of pregnancy then on a weekly basis until labour is established, please still get in touch if you are further on in pregnancy or haven’t had reflexology at all.
As well as deep relaxation during your treatment, you will also receive holistic lifestyle advice and guidance on self-reflexology techniques that you can incorporate at home and in the early stages of labour.
