Specialised reflexology training in preconception (fertility), pregnancy and post natal care
Recharge Reflexology have undertaken specialist reflexology training in preconception(fertility), pregnancy and post-natal care to enable us to treat and further support women through their maternity journey.
Preconception reflexology works by stimulating, un-blocking and balancing the reflexes, leading to a sense of wellbeing and relaxation. Many women hoping to conceive have used preconception reflexology for its hormone-balancing and relaxing properties which could help improve fertility or prepare the body and mind for fertility treatments.
Reflexology for pregnant women is not only a wonderfully relaxing treatment that aims to optimise the health while pregnant, but may also help remedy conditions such as fatigue, back pain, leg pain, migraine, insomnia, hormone imbalances, and digestive problems.
"Two recent studies have shown that reflexology in pregnancy significantly reduced pain in labour (1), reduced the length of the first stage of labour (1) and improved quality of sleep in post-natal women (2)"
Post-Natal reflexology can be of huge benefit at a time when hormone levels drop rapidly, leaving women susceptible to depression, tiredness and the feelings of overwhelming responsibility. A calm relaxed mummy passes the calm energy on to a baby.
