Maternity Reflexology

Modern life-style with lots of stress, inapropriate nutrition, alcohol, perhaps even drugs; financial are just some of the reasons why more and more women nowadays decide to postpone their fist pregnancy until they are almost past her optimal conception time. It is not so different for men who are experiencing lots of pressure at work and perhaps from their peers or even family. Lack of exercise, stressful jobs, inapropriate nutrition and other factors can affect man's virility and fertility.

Certain medical and physical conditions that may be preventing the conception (for example, polycistic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis, etc. - women; hormone imbalance, emotional effects - men and women; anything that may affect conception in both partners) can be treated medicaly, with councelling, psychology, etc. . Some couples may decide to try IVF or other fertility therapies that will help them concieve.

What does it do and how does it work?

Reflexology can support medical treatments by helping you alleviate stress and establish an inner peace and balance. Once there is a little baby growing in a woman's body, reflexology may help with calm or alleviate some of the pregnancy problems (sickness, nausea, pains, etc.). When the baby is due, reflexology may be used to help relieve pains (labour, birth), as well as in prenatal and postnatal care. Parents can even use reflexology to calm their babies and to help them with their niggling pains (see Baby Reflex).

What does a session look like?

Reflexology is only a part of a holistic approach to the treatment. We look into lifestyle factors, nutrition and health during your initial consultation. Reflexology session is similar to the regular session, but the technique is adapted for your condition with more focus on balancing reflexes for reproductive and endocrine system and alleviation of pains and other pregnancy discomforts.

After the first session we agree on a treatment plan and follow it through. It is often necessary to treat both partners. The maternity reflexology treatment usually consist of at least 6 - 10 sessions.

Contra-indications & Cautions

Contra-indications will be established during the consultation on your first session. It is highly recommended that you discuss this with your doctor and/or midwife before you start the reflexology sessions. Should your reflexologist have any doubts, she or he will refer you to your GP.

How do I prepare for the session?

  • Prepare medical information about any condition or problem in advance (inform your doctor/gynecologist that you wish to try Reflexology and ask them to provide you with necesary information and advice for the therapist), especially if you are undergoing any fertility treatments.

  • Do not eat heavy meals 2 hours before the treatment

  • Wear socks (not stockings)

  • Dress comfortably

  • Have some water available

  • Arrange a relaxing time for yourself after the treatment

IMPORTANT!Reflexology is not a 'magical cure' that will enable you to concieve. Neither will it tell you why you can not conceive. If you are undergoing any medical treatment, you should not change or stop it, unless your doctor/gynecologist tells you to. Reflexology is a complementary therapy, which means that it complements (works with) medicine, so do listen to your doctor/midwife first. And if you have any doubts or questions, please do talk to your therapist. If they feel they can not help or the therapy would not be suitable for you, they will refer you to your GP.
