What is Maternity reflexology?
Maternity reflexology can aid you with some of the side effects of being pregnant, but also research has shown that it can significantly cut the length of your labour by up to 18 hours! When you are pregnant, your body goes through massive changes. This can affect your emotions, hormones and the physiological balance of your body. Maternity Reflexology can help to ease or prevent discomfort arising from this imbalance and restore your body’s equilibrium.

Questions & Answers
Does reflexology make labour easier?
Research has shown that those mums to be that have 10 reflexology treatments during pregnancy can have a vastly reduced period of labour. Labour after sufficient reflexology treatments can be as little as 5 – 6 hours compared to a text book average of 16 – 24 hours for frist time mums.
Will Reflexology help my baby too?
As a mother, whilst your baby is in utero, the calmness you feel will transfer to your baby. This will encourage a calm, happy and contented baby.
How long does it take to see results?
Everyone is different and the time to see results will vary according to how deep-rooted your problems are. Most people will start to respond positively to Reflexology within 3 to 6 weekly appointments.

When you arrive we’ll chat through your consultation form to fully understand everything and then we’ll develop your very own treatment plan tailored to your needs.
Where will I be treated?
