This safe and relaxing therapy may help you feeling more relaxed and balanced during pregnancy and labour. Other benefits are physical and mental preparation for the birth of your baby. Maternity Reflexology may also help ease many of the common ailments associated with pregnancy, such as nausea and morning sickness, back pain, anxiety, constipation, fatigue and many more.
Maternity Reflexology is a very gentle and safe treatment which provides a sense of well-being, calmness and relaxation, both physically as well as mentally.
Maternity Reflexology may also help during labour as it provides natural pain relief. It may help to regulate contractions and may shorten labour.
What can I expect?
As with Traditional Reflexology, the first treatment starts with a welcome and a thorough consultation. You will then make yourself comfortable on the treatment couch, with your back well supported throughout. There is no need to remove any clothing apart from your shoes and socks.
Please give me a call to discuss any questions you may have or to make an appointment.
I prefer if you can speak to your midwife before any treatment commences but am aware this is not always possible.
A few testimonials about Maternity Reflexology
"I started to come to see Renni in early pregnancy as a friend recommended her. Well, I went as often as I could as it totally relaxed me, especially towards the end of my pregnancy. Would definitely go again if I get pregnant again."
"The first time I went for reflexology was when I was still in Cambridge and was therefore really happy to find a maternity reflexologist in York after I moved here. I was pregnant with my 2nd child and struggled with back pain a lot. My regular sessions really helped with this. Renni is very professional and just makes you feel relaxed straight away".
"Maternity Reflexology with Renni is just bliss. It's an hour or so of absolute relaxation and I always feel as if all my ailments have just disappeared. I LOVE it".
