Maternity reflexology is a type of reflexology that specifically offers care to women from pre-conception, pregnancy and birthing through to postnatal and newborn baby care.
Reflexology is a wonderful therapy to have on a regular basis during pregnancy. Research has shown that regular reflexology treatments during pregnancy can shorten the duration of labour with women often requiring less pain-relief during the course of delivery. Not only that, it can relax both mother and baby so that both are at ease with the many changes throughout this amazing time.
During pregnancy labour and the post natal period a woman will go through many changes both physiologically and emotionally. Reflexology can help alleviate or prevent discomfort arising from these changes and restore the bodyï¿½s equilibrium.
