Reflexology is one of the most popular complimentary therapies used by women before, during and after pregnancy.
Reflexology aims to help balance emotional, hormonal and physiological changes within your body. It aims to restore the body’s equilibrium, putting you in the best possible condition to conceive, and maintain a healthy pregnancy, while your body goes through significant and rapid changes. It may help to ease the demands of childbirth, and thereafter may be beneficial in helping both you and your new baby to enjoy each other during the first few demanding months of life together.
As reflexology aims to help restore and maintain the body’s natural equilibrium, it could be the ideal therapy for you to encourage regulation of ovulation and hormone balance during the pre-conception period.
Pre-conception reflexology is offered for both men and women, to get both partners in the best mental and physical shape they can.
Regular reflexology treatments, coupled with lifestyle changes by both partners, may be really effective at helping couples conceive. For many women the stress and anxiety attached to failing to conceive can be overwhelming and reflexology treatments may be just what is needed to help to reduce the stress attached to this, feel more relaxed and increase positivity. Reflexology also aims to balance hormone levels, enhance the body’s own natural healing abilities, and enable all body systems to function efficiently.
