Pregnancy is one of the most exciting and special times during a woman’s life. However, hormonal changes occur dramatically, provoking an alteration in many physiological functions. Maternity Reflexology can help restore balance in most cases, treating conditions symptomatically. It helps to alleviating discomfort and stimulates the body to cope with the changes that take place.

Here are a few examples of conditions that reflexology can help with :

  • anxiety
  • backache
  • blood pressure regulation (except cases of pre-eclampsia)
  • constipation
  • haemorrhoids
  • insomnia
  • muscular fatigue/tension
  • nausea and vomiting
  • oedema
  • urinary tract problems

Reflexology during labour :

During labour, reflexology is of great help to improve and stimulate several conditions that will occur and as a consequence helping the mother to better utilise her energies. It helps in all the physiological processes thus trying to avoid as much as possible the use of chemical substances and medication.

Conditions that can be helped are :

  • regulating contractions (stimulating or sedating according to their efficacy)
  • relaxation
  • helping bowel movements
  • backache
  • hyperventilation and correct breathing
  • regulating body temperature
