Pregnancy Reflexology – Don’t Leave It Until The Baby Is Almost Due

There are many women, when baby is overdue who will literally resort to anything to induce the baby and looking at complimentary therapies seems to be an option. As a reflexologist with over 15 years of experience, I know that many babies have been born within hours following one of my Pregnancy Reflexology sessions. Mums are naturally overjoyed that their baby has finally arrived and although I share their delight, it always crosses my mind that reflexology is a therapy that these expectant mums could have been enjoying throughout the whole term of their pregnancy as a preparation for the birth.

Natural Solutions To Help Physical, Emotional and Mental Changes

Pregnancy is a wonderful time in a woman’s life with the anticipation of the impending joy that the birth will bring, but the emotional, physical and mental changes can be tough on women and many experience uncomfortable and sometimes painful symptoms including fatigue, cramping, constipation and water retention. Many women turn to natural solutions including reflexology to help alleviate some of the symptoms, as few would resort to medication, which could be harmful to the growing foetus.

Reflexology – Helping Expectant Mothers Adjust To Hormonal Changes

Reflexology aims at bringing balance and harmony to the body and can help your body adjust to the major hormonal changes that it is experiencing, being one of the most relaxing therapies you can have during pregnancy. It is completely safe and uses various manual techniques to access and affect the whole body through the feet and regular treatments will provide you with the physical, emotional and mental support you need.

Benefits of Reflexology During Pregnancy

  • Provides deep relaxation
  • Relieves stress
  • Improves sleep
  • Relieves constipation
  • Reduces bloating
  • Relieves muscle aches and pains
  • Reduce swelling in legs and ankles

Reflexology Is Beneficial Throughout Pregnancy

So, don’t just wait for the reflex on the foot to be pressed to start labour, as baby will only arrive when it is ready and feels it is safe to do so. Think of yourself and your baby and enjoy reflexology throughout your pregnancy so that you are more relaxed and less anxious for when this very special moment of your life arrives. Regular reflexology could make you feel better and happier and will provide a nurturing and comforting environment for not only you as a mother, but your baby too.

Reflexology & Hayfever

An excellent way to relieve those tell tale signs of HAYFEVER

Are you looking forward to summer or are you one of many preparing to battle the symptoms of hayfever?  Does constant sneezing, runny/blocked nose, red, watery, itchy eyes and an associated itchy throat sound familiar?  Then you are one of 2 to 3 million people in Britain who live with hay fever every year.

Many resort to taking antihistamines, nasal sprays containing steroids or eye drops to combat these symptoms. The side effects of some medicines can leave you feeling quite lethargic… this really the way you imagined summer….?

Jane Long MAR may help such people with Reflexology.  According to Reflexologists, the feet and hands are a mirror of the body.  Pressure placed on specific reflex points can be used to treat corresponding areas of the body. It stimulates natural healing powers and promotes well being. A truly relaxing treatment!

Hay fever can occur at different times of year as different pollens are present and thus the time that you are affected depends on the pollen to which you are allergic. Other factors which may aggravate the situation are the weather and the air quality.

Hay fever often runs in families, and is also related to asthma and eczema. It is quite common to find a family with some members with asthma, some with hay fever, and some with eczema. Any individual might have more than one of these conditions.

Many people just get by and put up with hay fever symptoms.  Some are now finding Reflexology help’s ease symptoms while coming for their regular wellness sessions.

As a REFLEXOLOGIST, Jane Long has worked with several people to help alleviate hay fever symptoms at her clinic. 

Karen from Kilburn says….

“I have suffered with hayfever since my teens. I had been seeing Jane at least once a month to help me with an unrelated matter.  Then August came.  Every August there is one particular plant in bloom and it gets me every time!  My eyes began to water and the irritation and swollen feeling in my nose was unbearable.  This was a really inconvenient as I was working as a stylist on a BBC drama and the pressure was on – I had loads of work to do.   I visited Jane at her clinic and told her about the symptoms I had.  She then went on to give me a deeply relaxing but very firm treatment.  Afterwards she told me to drink a lot of water and nettle tea and to let her know how I felt in a few days time.  The next morning I woke up with no irritation whatsoever.  I went to work which involved shopping in Oxford Street – that was bound to trigger symptoms off – but no –they had been alleviated.  I was able to get through the day without sneezing and clearing my throat – I definitely felt toxin free!  Thanks Jane

Hayfever only requires 1 to 2 treatments within a week to get an initial response.  There after it is always good to come for weekly for a treatment and then once every 4 to 6 weeks as reflexology is not only a deeply relaxing and enjoyable treatment, it can give you a real sense of energy and vitality too.  Reflexology is about releasing tension, stress and experiencing a deep sense of calm and relaxation.  Once you are in that state of relaxation, symptoms of a variety of conditions may reduce.
