Reflexology is safe in pregnancy and can be very beneficial.
I personally do not treat women in the first trimester of pregnancy.
I also take caution treating women with high risk pregnancies, if you think this applies to you please get in contact so that we can discuss further.
You can have reflexology at Aurello when you reach your second trimester. Reproductive points are avoided.
In the later stages of pregnancy your seating position can be adjusted so that you can sit comfortably and safely.
Reflexology may help with the following pregnancy issues:
- Heart Burn
- Postural problems and backache
- Stress levels
- Energy levels
In the later stages of pregnancy weekly treatments may help towards preparing the body to give birth, tiredness and aches and pains.
If you are overdue reflexology can help to bring on labour.
Studies have shown that reflexology in pregnancy did the following:
-Significantly reduced pain during labour
- Reduced the length of the first stage of labour
- Reduced pain and stress levels for women in labour who suffered pelvic and lower back pain,
- Reduced anxiety
- Improved quality of sleep in post natal women.
Indian Head Massage is safe in pregnancy and can be very beneficial.
If you have any blood pressure problems please send me a message before booking so we can discuss further. This is because Indian Head Massage can on the rare occasion make you feel a bit dizzy so I am cautious about this in pregnant ladies with blood pressure issues.
I do my Indian Head Massages with you laying down on the couch, front to start with then onto your back for the second half. In the later stages of pregnancy your position can be adjusted so that you are sitting upright comfortably and safely.
Holistic Facial Massage is safe in pregnancy.
However it is difficult to do in the later stages of pregnancy due to the position you need to be in.
I can slightly elevate your top half but I need to be able to access your face from behind you for an hour, therefore it might be better to try a different treatment at this time.
Please send me a message and we can discuss further.
I am currently not offering Pregnancy Aromatherapy treatments, if this is something you are interested in please let me know by sending an email below so I assess demand and schedule a training course accordingly, Thank you.
