Reflexology with Bodywise Derby
Reflexology is a natural and holistic way to improve your health and well being.
Reflexology dates back thousands of years with its roots in China and ancient Egypt. It was developed as we know it today by an American Physiotherapist Eunice Ingham in the 1930s. She developed charts identifying specific reflex points on the hands and feet relating to organs, glands and parts of the body.
Ever popular today Reflexology uses fingers and thumbs on these reflex points to aid relaxation, improve circulation and encourage the body to achieve natural balance. Reflexologists do not claim to diagnose, prescribe or cure specific ailments but do aim to relieve stress and tension and promote a sense of general health and well being.
Maternity reflexology appointments are available in Derby for women trying to conceive and for pre and post natal clients. Alternatively, if you would just like to try general Reflexology and are local to Derby, please do call to arrange an appointment.
Maternity Reflexolgy with Bodywise Derby - Lesley
Pre natal Reflexology
During pregnancy women can find reflexology deeply relaxing, helping them to adjust to the hormonal, emotional and physical changes they encounter. In turn this helps to relieve stress and anxiety prior to birth, promoting a calm and positive outlook for mother and baby.
Reflexology is perfectly safe and beneficial during pregnancy, however I do recommend that you let your midwife know you are intending to have Reflexology.
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/ fortnightly treatments , 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.
Post natal Reflexology
Following the birth reflexology helps to rebalance the body, calming and relaxing the mother, encouraging rest and relaxation.
