Treatments for Pregnancy - Aromatherapy Massage and Reflexology
Pregnancy brings up a whole range of emotions, including excitement, joy, and happiness as well as anxiety, apprehension and worry. During this time our bodies are changing very quickly adapting constantly to your ever-growing baby.
These emotions and physical changes can put a big toll on your health and natural therapies are a wonderful way to help you feel more balanced and help you cope with the effects of being pregnant.
Safe, gentle and nourishing aromatherapy oils will be used to enhance your massage; Chamomile Oil which has a relaxing effect and is also anti-inflammatory and Mandarin Oil, which is uplifting and wonderful for your skin.
Benefits of Massage include: -
Install a sense of calm and relaxation, good for both you and your baby.
Helps to relieve stress, which in turn, helps to balance your hormones.
Aleviates muscular aches and pains, muscle tension and sciatica.
Reduces odema, swollen feet, ankles and legs and helps to reduce water retention.
Can help improve sleep pattern.
Aromatherapy massage can also help during the end of your pregnancy to encourage the baby to be born on time. A different blend of oils is used at this time which help stimulate the hormones needed to start labour.
I can also supply a wonderful Luxury Labour Aromatherapy Essential Oil blend that help during labour with labour pains, breathing and reducing anxiety.
I highly recommend Reflexology whilst you are pregnant. A specialised treatment on your feet using massage techniques to bring you completely back to balance, metally, physically and emotionally. Deeply relaxing and calming.
Benefits of Reflexology include: -
A deeply relaxing and claming treatment, that helps you feel balanced and grounded.
Excellent for balancing hormones during this time of huge hormone surges.
Can help with other physical side effects of pregnancy such as heartburn, digestive problems and morning sickness.
Encourages natural labour - if you are ready to have your baby but they are reluctant to come out, Reflexology can be of great assistance to help bring labour on.
