PRE & POSTNATAL REFLEXOLOGY

Reflexology is a wonderful therapy that is both safe and effective during pregnancy. It's proven to improve your general well being, is extremely relaxing and helps your body adjust to the major hormonal changes you are undergoing.

Having been trained by Sally Earlam who is the Maternity Specialist and Head of Training and Education Association of Reflexologists (AoR) I am well placed to help you throughout your pregnancy. Sally has many years experience as both a midwife and a reflexologist and is regularly invited to write articles for leading parenting magazines in the UK.

Regular Reflexology treatments can help to manage, prevent and relieve many symptoms experienced during pregnancy, including:

Morning sickness

Constipation

Discomfort

Heartburn

Swollen feet and legs/ Edema
