Maternity Reflexology

Reflexology is a natural and holistic way to improve your health and well being.  Reflexology uses fingers and thumbs on  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.

Bodywise Derby Maternity reflexology appointments are available in for women trying to conceive and for pre and post natal clients.

Alternatively, if you are not pregnant and would just like to try general Reflexology in Derby, please do call to arrange an appointment.

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.

Post natal Reflexology

Following the birth reflexology helps to rebalance the body, calming and relaxing the mother, encouraging rest and relaxation.
