PRECONCEPTION, PREGNANCY & POSTNATAL CARE
Reflexology is one of the most popular complementary therapies used by women before and during pregnancy because it is safe, non-invasive and improves general well-being and vitality.
Reflexology can help prepare your body for conception by rebalancing all body systems, calming the mind and body down and ready for creation.
During pregnacy your body also goes through major changes as the baby develops. Reflexology can induce a deep state of relaxation letting your body adjust to these changes.
It can help to ease many of the common complaints associated with pregnancy such as: constipation, heartburn, nausea, lack of sleep, fatigue, swollen feet, cramps, backache.
Receiving regular reflexology during pregnancy not only helps improve your overall health, but can shorten the time of labour, and promote a healthier outcome for you and your baby. If the baby is overdue, reflexology can be an effective way for helping induce labour.
Feel positive and so will your baby. Babies can pick up on the emotions of the mother. Regular reflexology sessions throughout your pregnancy and after the birth can help you to feel normal again.
Make time for you.
Simple but invraiably a hard thing to do.
Its not selfish or indulgent - its neccesary for your pregnant self or new mum or dad.
Being happy, relaxed and balanced is vital to cope with pressures we put upon ourselves and our busy lives.
It takes a lot of enery to create a life, be kind to yourself.
Don't forget the partners!
Often partners can feel left out.
They too can feel low, suffer symptoms and find it hard to adjust to everythng new thats going on.
Treat them to a treatment too.

As a mother myself of two young boys, I understand the challenges of modern day living, pregnancy at work, and just coping with what life throws at us.
Along with all the bennefits of a reflexology session, it gives you or your partner, a chance to think of yourselves for a few moments.
