Young Girls & Periods
As a young girl approaches puberty, hormones are all over the place and bring up physical and emotional change.
The production of hormones helps develop the reproductive system so that the ovaries and uterus are ready for an eventual pregnancy.
This doens’t go unnoticed, this change is challinging and unsettling, bringing some discomfort as well as emotional challenges.
Reflexology supports the transition from girl to young woman as hormones are balanced and pain and discomfort are gently eased.
Fertility & Conception
In 65% of infertility cases examined by conventional medicine, the reason is unknown. Fertility Reflexology is often able to help this group.
Health and lifestyle are discussed. Where necessary, the focus of the Reflexology session is first on relevant health issues followed by a treatment plan to support the reproductive system and balance hormones.
helping make babies naturally
Failing to conceive after a few months may cause stress and anxiety. Treatments relax body and mind and have been successfully used to treat some forms of infertility such as unexplained or stress related infertility.
As hormones are balanced, a cycle may become more regular, and pregnancy often happens within 6 months of receiving treatments.
Pregnancy Reflexology is a very safe and deeply relaxing therapy that supports the health and wellbeing of both the mother-to-be and baby.
From conception, a woman goes through physical and emotional changes as her body adjusts dramatically to fluctuating hormones that support a changing body and the growth of a new life.
Up to 75% of pregnant women experience nausea whilst more than 50% face fluid retention, fatigue, constipation and cramping. Instead of taking medication to ease these symptoms, Reflexology is a natural solution.
Research and case studies show that when receiving regular treatments during pregnancy, the births are easier, and the babies are more settled.
Can I have Reflexology during pregnancy?
Yes, you can. Reflexology is a safe and nurturing treatment that supports the physical and emotional wellbeing of the Mum-to-be. The developing foetus benefits from the treatments also.
Some Reflexologists prefer not to work with pregnant women. Some cultures promote that it is unsafe, but across the world, many midwives now use Reflexology, trained by a nurse/midwife. The treatments are safe.
Can Reflexology cause a miscarriage?
Reflexology cannot cause miscarriages. When a miscarriage happens, it is due to chromosomal abnormalities in the foetus. However, in the event of a risk due to other factors, Reflexology helps diffuse stress levels and balances hormones.
Can I have reflexology in my first trimester?
A nurturing Reflexology treatment helps the body and the emotions to adjust to this new exciting state. It helps Mum-to-be to be more relaxed and enjoy this new phase in her life.
What are the benefits of Reflexology?
Reflexology stimulates nerve endings, blood flow and lymphatic drainage. It also helps to balance hormones. This is all beneficial during pregnancy, creating a healthy environment for baby to grow and develop.
How many treatments do I need?
Initially, six weekly treatments are recommended as the results are cumulative. Then monthly treatments up to week 28, fortnightly up to week 36, then weekly to the end of pregnancy.
As a woman approaches perimenopause, and then menopause, hormonal production fluctuates and decreases. This leads to physical and emotional changes that may cause hot flushes, night sweats and insomnia as well as stress and anxiety.
Research shows that Reflexology helps regulate the hormonal fluctuations and eases the physical and emotional changes.
