There are so many benefits to receiving reflexology during pregnancy and in the lead up to birth which include:
Specific reflexology points such as the uterus will be stimulated to help encourage labour
The nervous system can be calmed which will help to reduce stress and anxiety surrounding birth
The endocrine system can be balanced and stimulated which can help the release of oxytocin (which is needed to go into labour!)
The spine, hips and pelvis reflexes will be worked to help release tension in the body
Reflexology will help you feel nurtured, soothed and supported in the lead up to birth
During my pregnancy I received regular reflexology treatments which helped ease symptoms and allowed me to stay calm and relaxed.
During the last few weeks of my pregnancy, I had weekly reflexology that worked reflex points which can help bring on labour. My labour started the day before my due date and I truly believe reflexology helped with this!
If you are currently pregnant and would like to receive reflexology please message me to book in for some reflexology 👣
