Reflexology works on the belief that the feet are a map of the body and pressure is applied to different areas of the foot to work on specific areas of the body as well as providing a relaxing and uplifting treatment.
Research has shown that regular reflexology treatments during pregnancy can reduce the length of labour, and women will often require less pain relief during labour. Reflexology works on the belief that the feet are a map of the body and pressure is applied to different areas of the foot to work on specific areas of the body as well as providing a relaxing and uplifting treatment. Many women also choose reflexology when they are overdue with their baby to help promote the start of labour naturally rather than being induced. Reflexology is one of the most popular complementary therapies used by women during pregnancy. Its other benefits include:
- Improving general well-being and vitality
- Inducing a deep state of relaxation so that the body can adjust to the major changes which are taking place within the body
- It helps reduce many of the discomforts and ailments which are commonly associated with pregnancy
Many women choose to combine feet reflexology with hand and face reflexology for a thoroughly relaxing and rejuvenating experience.
