Reflexology for Pregnancy
Your body will go through the most amazing changes you can imagine while nurturing and growing your new addition to the family! Regular reflexology sessions will support you throughout your pregnancy, encouraging your mind and body to remain in balance, easing minor ailments, aches and pains, and preparing you for a wonderful birth experience.
These are a few examples in which reflexology has demonstrated to be beneficial in pregnancy:
- Constipation or any change in bowel movement pattern
- Hyper salivation
- Sinus congestion
- Muscular tension
- Edema (not associated with pre-eclampsia)
- Urinary tract infections
- Pubic symphysis pain
- Hip/pelvic pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
Reflexology is complementary to expert medical care. Always let your health care provider know that you are receiving reflexology during pregnancy. More and more doctors and midwives are aware of the benefits of reflexology and other complementary therapies, however, it is necessary that you get the proper assessment on the appearance of any condition that might be serious.
For maximum benefit book regular sessions throughout your pregnancy. Frequency depends on your personal needs which will be discussed at your first session.

Induction of labor
If you are past your due date I would love to try to help you ease into labor, with your doctor or midwife's blessing. Before this time I would prefer not to interfere with the natural process of the start of labor. If your obstetrician is suggesting an early chemical induction however, I can certainly give it my all to help your body start labor on its own - with your doctor's approval.

Baby reflex in your feet!
Yes! There is a baby reflex in the feet. It grows with your baby and can be visible from 8 weeks, but it is more likely to be seen around 12 weeks when the uterus starts to grow out of the pelvic cavity or when you begin to "show", amazing! I also like to send Reiki energy to your baby by holding this reflex point.
