Reflexology is a natural, non-invasive and calming therapy which promotes relaxation.
Specific areas called reflex points correspond to different areas of your body. By applying gentle pressure to these reflexes – which can be in your face, hands or feet – imbalances can be corrected, areas of tension are released and energy flows freely throughout the body.
Studies show that women who have reflexology during their pregnancies are more likely to give birth at full term, have shorter labours and require less pain relief. Other benefits could include:
- Relief from morning sickness and nausea
- Relief from sciatic pain and backache
- Reduction of swelling
- Relief from stress and anxiety
- Helping to lower blood pressure
- Turning a breach baby
- Preparation for labour
