reduces labour time
Reflexology is very safe and of great support during pregnancy. It can help with most symptoms present during pregnancy, such as morning sickness, swelling in feet and ankles, improving sleep quality and aid digestion.
Treatments flow on to benefit the foetus as well, creating a sense of wellbeing.
Research has shown that receiving regular Reflexology during pregnancy and certainly during the last couple of months, helps to make labour easier and shorter, lasting approximately 6 hours.
Some of the following conditions may benefit from Reflexology during pregnancy
- restless legs
- symphysis pubis discomfort
- anxiety and other pregnancy issues
Treatments are especially useful in the last few months to prepare for the birth. Your body and Baby work together to start labor and Reflexology is a great support at this time.
I was on crutches for the last four months of the pregnancy due to symphysis pubis. After two Reflexology treatments with Anne, the pain was gone. I was still on crutches but could now move around without pain, what a wonderful sensation!
