A highly relaxing complementary therapy to support you during your maternity journey and throughout your pregnancy.

 

Maternity Reflexology can help you to relax, improve sleep and provide special time to bond with your growing baby.

 

Maternity reflexology may also help with common conditions which can arise during pregnancy including morning sickness, back ache, constipation and heartburn.

 

By helping us to relax, reflexology can also help to reduce anxiety, stress and support us during times of depression.

 

Research

 

Two significant studies have shown that reflexology in pregnancy significantly reduced pain during labour  and reduced the length of the first stage of labour.

 

One study showed improved quality of sleep in post-natal women

 

One study showed that 6 weekly treatments of reflexology prior to giving birth on for women who experienced low back and/or pelvic girdle pain during their pregnancy significantly reduced the second stage of labour by 44.3 minutes

 

Reduced pain and stress levels for women with low back pain or pelvic girdle pain

 

Foot reflexology was found to have a positive effect in lowering the total anxiety scores of women in labour.
