PREGNANCY TREATMENTS

PREGNANCY REFLEXOLOGY

Pregnancy reflexology is one of the safest, most supportive therapies for pregnant women and is extremely relaxing and calming for the mind, body and baby. It can help with relief of many complaints during pregnancy including:

  • Morning sickness

  • Nausea & headaches

  • Pain & discomfort

  • Loss of bladder control

  • Backache

  • Stress & anxiety

  • Lack of sleep & fatigue

  • Digestive problems e.g constipation

  • Fluid retention

  • Cramp

Reflexology can also play an important role leading up to the birth. There is evidence that expectant mothers who receive regular reflexology treatments experience significantly shorter labours with less intervention. See below for reflexology therapists in Edinburgh.
