Reflexology during, pre and post pregnancy can be very beneficial. The aim of reflexology is to bring about balance and wellness in the whole person. It is a natural and non invasive treatment that is safe and deeply relaxing.
Reflexology is one of the most popular complementary therapies used by women during pregnancy. It is a wonderful, natural and simple way of helping your body through pregnancy from fertility issues, the discomforts associated with pregnancy and preparation for birth. The Association of Reflexologists says, “Nearly everyone can benefit from having reflexology during pregnancy.” Reflexology is becoming more commonly accepted and used in the NHS and many midwives are now recommending Reflexology to help their patients through pregnancy.
