Maternity Reflexology

Maternity Reflexology in a gentle therapy designed to nuture and support a woman throughout her pregnancy and also after her baby is born.  Maternity Reflexology uses the feet to balance and harmonise the body.  It is based on the principle that reflex points on the feet correspond to all organs and systems in the body.  When these reflex points are stimulated, the body’s own natural healing potential is activated.

During pregnancy, a woman’s body will go through many changes.  Maternity Reflexology will help to relieve the discomforts that may some time arise as a result of these changes.
