Reflexology and AromaReflex
Reflexology is one of the most powerful non-invasive healing treatments available. Regular treatments during pregnancy can help to prepare the mother mentally and physically for labour and birth. Reflexology is safe to use in pregnancy and may help relieve a variety of symptoms. This is an extremely relaxing and nurturing treatment that is comfortable for pregnant mothers to receive. Women often say they feel wonderfully calm after a treatment and sleep extremely well.
AromaReflex combines both the power of essential oils and reflexology. During the session you receive a full reflexology treatment and to enhance the benefit of the treatment you will have a blend of oils chosen just for you. A low dilution of certain oils known to be safe and beneficial in pregnancy will be used. It an extremely relaxing and nurturing experience.
Aromareflex uses a carefully selected range of oils that are safe to use but also extremely beneficial. You will have your blend applied throughout your treatment. This treatment is longer than a regular reflexology session as it also incorporates advanced massage techniques. You will be given your blend pot to take home so that you can maximise the benefits of your session.
Postnatal care is often a neglected area. The physicality of having a baby is not spread over nine months, but twelve. For three months or more after the birth (the fourth trimester) your body is recovering from the effects of the pregnancy. It is important to take time to nurture yourself and recover your strength. A programme of postnatal treatments is a wonderful way to ensure that new mums take time to recover.
The History of Reflexology is an ancient healing art first practised by the early Indian, Chinese and Egyptian peoples. It is based on the principle that there are reflex points on the hands and feet that relate to all parts of the body. Using specific thumb and finger techniques to apply gentle pressure to these reflex points are believed to enable the body to:
• Relieve stress and tension
• Improve circulation
• Eliminate toxins
• Enhance wellbeing
