Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary health therapy that can help to promote deep relaxation and wellbeing by reducing stress & helping the body to return to a state of equilibrium or homeostasis. It is a touch therapy that is based on the theory that specific points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas, organs & systems of the body. It can be used safely alongside standard healthcare to promote better health but is not an alternative to medical treatment and it is not diagnostic.
If you are currently undergoing medical treatment or you have medical issues associated with pregnancy, you must consult with your medical / health professional regarding the suitability of attending a reflexology treatment.
If you have any medical complications associated with your pregnancy please let Karen know prior to booking a treatment & always check with your midwife or consultant.
Please do not attend a treatment if you are feeling unwell or if you are isolating in accordance with COVID guidelines.
Karen offers the following treatments:
FOOT REFLEXOLOGY: GENERAL TREATMENT
The whole foot gets worked during every treatment by stimulating the reflexes (specific points on the feet) to trigger a relaxation response in the body. The treatment is aimed at restoring & rebalancing the body. It is incredibly relaxing and helps to calm the body & mind.
Maternity reflexology supports mother & baby during this special time by providing a space where the mother can focus on taking some time for herself. Every treatment is tailored to suit the needs of the mother-to-be at each stage of her pregnancy incorporating techniques & specific sequencing for a range of issues that can arise such as: morning sickness / heartburn, pelvic girdle pain, digestive issues & anxiety. Maternity reflexology encourages deep relaxation, reduces anxiety & feelings of stress and helps to improve quality of sleep.
A programme of timetabled treatments during your pregnancy up to birth is highly recommended.
POST NATAL REFLEXOLOGY (4TH TRIMESTER)
The 4th trimester is an exciting & joyful time but can sometimes feel overwhelming for new mums. This wonderfully relaxing treatment provides you with the space to focus on your physical & emotional recovery after birth. Post natal reflexology can help to rebalance hormones, boost the immune system and can also encourage breast milk production. This is a restorative treatment to assist the healing process and help you to readjust to a non-pregnant state.
RELAXED MUMS = RELAXED BABIES!
