Reflexology and Pregnancy
During pregnancy the body goes through a number of different changes both physically and emotionally. As a result of this the equilibrium of the body can often become out of balance. Reflexology may often help to relieve some of the symptoms associated with being pregnant including morning sickness, headaches, tiredness, constipation, mood swings, back pain, indigestion and oedema. Reflexology may be beneficial throughout the pregnancy from week 13 right up until the birth. Also by receiving regular Reflexology treatments during the pregnancy it may be possible for the birth to be more straightforward and the recovery time afterwards could be improved, however, this can vary from person to person. Please note that a Reflexology treatment cannot be given during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy or if there is a history of unstable pregnancy.
