Pregnancy

PregnancyReflexology support through out your pregnancy

A Reflexology treatment gives you time away from your busy life to focus purely on yourself and your growing baby.

First Trimester

Huge changes in hormone levels and anxieties and concerns can leave you feeling delighted, anxious, nervous and excited all at once.

Reflexology will leave you feeling deeply relaxed. It’s great for de-stressing and calming your mind. It can also alleviate any side effects you are experiencing such as nausea or headaches.

Second & Third Trimester

Most of the discomforts of early pregnancy have gone. Yet as the baby grows you may begin to experience other physical symptoms. Your stress levels may also rise as the birth becomes more imminent.

Reflexology can be used for general wellbeing or to address other symptoms as they arise such as sleeping problems or back pain.

Preparation for Labour

As your due date approaches, you may choose to have more frequent Reflexology treatments as it will help support the body to prepare for labour and promote relaxation especially if your anxiety levels are high.

There is  lots of anecdotal evidence from women who feel they have benefitted from reflexology throughout their pregnancy. Two recent studies have shown that reflexology in pregnancy significantly reduced pain during labour (1) and improved quality of sleep in post-natal women (2).

I’m proud of the Maternity Reflexology training I have received with Susanne Enzer, Author of Maternity Reflexology Manual, I’ve learnt lots of techniques which enable me to help support pregnant women with reflexology, especially if they have any minor ailments or want to prepare for a natural labour.

Testimonials

“Having been trying to conceive for quite some time I contacted Rebecca. Within three months I fell pregnant. I would recommend reflexology with Rebecca to anyone who is trying to have a baby, it is very relaxing and I’m sure it made a difference for me."

Nicky, Winnersh 

"I want to shout from the rooftops about a lovely lady I think each and every one of you should go to. Without going into lots of details my partner and I struggled with fertility problems for over 3 years, we tried everything from conventional medicines and homeopathic remedies. The month I finally fell pregnant naturally I was having weekly reflexology sessions with the lovely Rebecca Hogan at Relax Rebalance and I believe this is the main thing that helped us to conceive. Rebecca is such a lovely, kind, throughtful and caring person and I will carry on seeing her throughout my pregnancy and beyond. If your not struggling from fertility problems she can help with stress, anxiety and other problems as well, she is a wonderwoman!! A massive thank you to Rebecca who without I couldn't imagine sitting here staring at my first scan picture xxx"
