REFLEXOLOGY

Reflexology is an ancient form of healing that works on specific reflex points on the feet that correspond with areas of the body. This treatment can reduce stress, induce relaxation, cleanse and balance the body and help with health problems.  The treatment can restore a state of balance and well-being. Through reflexology you may get the benefit of having your whole body massaged both internally and externally.

 

Reflexology can help with sleep problems, aches and pains and many many more problems.

The treatment takes at least 45 minutes.

 

First your feet are cleansed, and then massaged to relax them prior to the reflexology treatment.

 

Pregnancy – Your body is going though a lot of changes though different stages of the pregnancy. As well as working on areas that need more rebalancing, we can concentrate on any symptoms you may be experiencing such as backache, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, fatigue, heartburn, and sciatica. Reflexology can also assist helping the baby receive vital nutrients and oxygen as your blood circulation flow increases.

Labour - If you have had treatments during the course of your pregnancy you may be at an advantage. Reports have shown that women who have had regular treatments whilst pregnant experience a shorter labour, deliver nearer to term, use fewer interventions and recover much quicker.

Postnatal - The benefits to having reflexology afterwards can assist balancing your body and hormones, relax you and your baby, reduce any pain or soreness, aid lactation, and increase your energy levels.

Sub Fertility – Many women find it hard to conceive some cases can be explained but up to 25% is unexplained. Some relate to infections or diet. For men this may also include poor sperm quality. A lot of people have stressful lives which can be a major part and could reduce fertility for both partners. By having treatments, the endocrine system can be worked on to balance your hormones, stress levels, and aid your reproductive organs. If you are having IVF treatment this can also help with relaxation and stress levels.

Pregnancy Reflexology

A study of 593 women giving birth at a Danish hospital found that 89.7% of those who chose reflexology with no anaelgesic drugs, felt it reduced pain, with only 4 of them requiring additional pain medication.

This study also showed that not only can it help reduce pain but it can also help bring about labour, often without the need for further intervention in about half the cases. And as if that wasn’t a good enough reason to try this extremely relaxing and calming therapy, a further study has also shown that it can reduce labour time by over 60%. The study conducted in London by Dr Gowri Motha showed that women having regular reflexology treatments had an average first stage labour of 5-6 hours, compared to textbook expectations of 16-24 hours. It also found that Stage 2 and 3 of labour combined was less than 25 mins for those having had reflexology, compared to more typical experiences of 1-2 hours.
