Women’s health

Many of the disharmonies and disorders that can occur during a woman's fertile life may respond well to reflexology therapy. Reflexology may help:

  • heavy periods

  • relieve PMT

  • support the woman through pregnancy

  • support the woman through the menopaus

Pregnancy Reflexology

Many women experience frustration and disappointment that coping with pregnancy is not as straightforward as they may have hoped. They’re often unaware of the options available to them to help optimize their physical and emotional health during pregnancy, and help them prepare for a straightforward birth.

Reflexology is one of the most popular complementary therapies used by women during pregnancy. Trials have found that those receiving regular treatments during pregnancy tend to deliver closer to term, have shorter labour pain and are less likely to require medical intervention.

As well as relieving anxiety and promoting a general sense of well-being, some specific benefits of pregnancy reflexology may include:

  • Increasing energy levels

  • Reducing fluid retention and swelling

  • Aiding digestion and prevention of heartburn

  • Improved sleep

  • Relieving discomfort and back ache

  • Reducing stress induced hypertension

  • Relieving symptoms of symphysis pubis dysfunction

  • Reducing the likelihood of medical induction at hospital.
