Reflexology for hormonal well being and fertility
No matter what stage of life you are at, as a women, your hormones play a huge role in how you feel on a day to day basis. Reflexology is believed to be effective at normalizing unbalanced hormones, helping to regulate menstrual cycles, combat PMT and support you through menopause. After receiving Fertility, Pregnancy, Menopause, Hormonal Reflexology you can expect a more regular menstrual cycle with better flow, you will also notice less cramping, bloating, headaches, sweats and mood swings.
As Reflexology is thought to be particularly useful at regulating hormones, cycles and preparing the body to conceive, it will come as no surprise to learn that Reflexology may work well for those with unexplained infertility, anovulation, dysmenorrhoea or polycystic ovaries (PCOS).
Reflexology and your conception journey
Reflexology can support clients who are having fertility issues or who are planning to try and conceive naturally. This can be an extremely anxious time in couple’s lives; when conception takes longer than they thought. The sessions outline the effect that stress can have on conception and utilises reflexology to help support couples both physically and emotionally wherever you have got to in your conception journey.
Reflexology and the birth process
Reflexology promotes emotional and physical well being and research has shown that reflexology in pregnancy may significantly reduce pain during labour, may reduce the length of the first stage of labour and improves quality of sleep in post-natal women. In the late stages of pregnancy and especially if ‘over due’ I have used Reflexology combined with Aromatherapy and hypnobirthing techniques, with great success, to reduce anxiety and stress which inturn can allow the body to relax and stimulate labour.
Reflexology during your pregnancy
Following on from conception reflexolgy, or as a seperate course for any expectant mother; there are many benefits of reflexology throughout pregnancy. It is estimated as many as 1 in 50 pregnant woman suffer from Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD). SPD is also known as Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP) and the names are often used interchangeably. The condition is characterised by excessive movement of the pubic symphysis or pelvic girdle and the chronic pain that goes with it. The deep relaxation of reflexology is thought to be effective at significantly reducing some symptoms of the condition.
Menopause comes along on average when a woman is in her 50’s, however, perimenopause/pre-menopause can have a whole host of problems too! Some describe it as feeling like they are having PMT for months maybe years on end. As perimenopause and full menopause are part of a womans’ natural hormone cycle they can be eased with regular reflexology treatments.
