Maternity Reflexology provides you with the space and time to unwind, as you prepare for baby to arrive.

Since 2008, I feel privileged I have been able to support numerous expectant mums throughout their pregnancy, via maternity reflexology, as they prepare for birth.  It is a wonderful journey to be part of and it’s so exciting when a client contacts me to share the news of their arrival.

Whilst you consider whether you would like to receive maternity reflexology, I have detailed some information for you below.

What is Maternity Reflexology?

It is an area of reflexology aimed specifically at women during pre-conception, pregnancy, labour and the post-natal periods.

Why Do Clients Have Maternity Reflexology?

For many of my clients they choose to have maternity reflexology, to relax and unwind in a secure space before baby arrives. Some clients may feel anxious, or worried and my treatment helps them to relax and release some of the stress and tension they may feel.

What Qualifications Do You Have?

  • International Institute of Reflexology Diploma
  • Enhancing Fertility and Maternity Care through Reflexology. Accredited by the Association of Reflexologists (AoR) via Jubilee College, taught by David Wayte who is a Fellow of the AoR and the only reflexologist in the UK to be made a member of the Royal Society of Medicine

I am Pregnant – What Happens Before a Treatment?

As an experienced maternity reflexologist I work in a complementary way alongside the skilled work of your midwife (your chief healthcare provider during pregnancy) and will ask you to obtain permission before reflexology treatments commence.

If a treatment is suitable to go-ahead I will ask you to complete an online well-being consultation form before your first appointment. This will help me to tailor the treatment for your individual needs.

What Happens During a Maternity Reflexology Treatment?

When you arrive to the treatment room at the Health Workshop, in Ashby-de-la-Zouch for your first appointment we will discuss your aims for the session and I can answer any questions you may have. You will also be asked to complete a data protection form.

You will remove your shoes and socks, and be made comfortable on the relaxing couch, with an option of a cosy blanket.  I will apply a beautiful organic maternity foot balm to your feet and you will start to feel the stresses of the day slip away! At this point, I will then carry out a short breathing exercise with you, which really encourages the mind and body to unwind. Many of my clients go on to use this exercise during their labour to help them relax if they are feeling nervous. Pressure will then be applied to the reflex points on the feet, as you unwind.

Many clients like to be peaceful during the treatment and some like to talk. I will always take your lead on this, it is your session and I want you to get the best possible outcome during it. It is also not uncommon for clients to fall asleep; this is completely normal and a wonderful way for mum-to-be to rest.

After I have worked the various reflex points, I will then massage the feet with the beautiful balm and wrap the feet to end – bliss!

You will have time following the treatment to ask any questions about your session.

Reflexology is a truly relaxing and supportive treatment during a pregnancy, and many of my ladies leave the treatment room feeling refreshed and relaxed.

If you would like to try maternity reflexology for yourself head to book for price details, how to book and the treatment room address. Alternatively, if you have any questions about the treatment please email me or call 07910 120 929.

I look forward to hearing from you.
