Reflexology for Mums-to-be

Posted on: March 8, 2010

This article has been written for me by Kelly Holman, a lovely reflexologist.  Kelly’s contact details are shown below.

Reflexology is a popular therapy for Mums-to-be.    A strong advocate for its role during pregnancy is Dr Gowri  Motha, an obstetrician and founder of the ‘Gentle Birth Method’.   Her book of the same name is well worth reading.    In it she says “my inclusion of reflexology .., was accidental, yet it is now one of the most powerful tools in my programme.”    She goes on to say that it is “instrumental in helping 45.5 per cent of (her) mothers give birth at the optimum gestation of 40 weeks”.     Anecdotal evidence also suggests reflexology can help keep blood pressure normal, relieve pelvic girdle pain (also known as Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction) and generally help with common ailments.  Personally I believe you cannot underestimate the benefit of reflexology’s deep relaxation as you prepare for the birth of your baby.

I have been practising reflexology for almost ten years and am now studying for a Certificate in Maternity Reflexology with one of the world’s leading experts, Suzanne Enzer.

I am looking for case studies.  Interested?    You need to commit to five treatments (you can have more) and in return for your help I am offering a half price package (£80 for five treatments).    Please get in touch for more information.
