Maternity Reflexology with Bodywise Derby
At the first appointment a full health and pregnancy history is taken to identify your aims for the reflexology sessions. This will take between an hour and an hour and a quarter including the reflexology.
Reflexology is perfectly safe and beneficial during pregnancy, however I do recommend that you let your midwife know you are intending to have Reflexology.
During the session you will be asked to remove your shoes and socks and will be made comfortable in either a reclining Lafuma chair or using a footstool. Light pressure is applied using fingers and thumbs to the feet, this does not tickle, it can at times feel a little tender in some areas, but on the whole is deeply relaxing.
Your comfort is paramount so please do say if you need to change your position, get up and move around for a few minutes or if the pressure is too firm or light.
Labour priming techniques can be used to stimulate specific reflexes to encourage the onset of labour, however these reflexology techniques are contraindicated prior to your expected date of delivery.
Clients often have weekly treatments initially over a period of 4 to 6 weeks, however one off sessions are also beneficial and gift tokens are available.
Please contact Lesley at Bodywise Derby if you have any questions and to book an appointment.
£35 per 1 hour session(your first session will last a little longer but still cost just £35)
Following your first session, you can pay as you go or book the following to receive a discount.
£150 for 5 sessions
£280 for 10 sessions
If you are experiencing any symptoms which are causing you concern, please consult you G.P and or midwife, Reflexology is not a substitute for medical care.
Many thanks, Lesley Bodywise Derby
