great choice to help with stress, anxiety, insomnia and digestive issues
Reflexology is a great choice to help with stress, anxiety, insomnia and digestive issues. It’s also a very popular treatment during pregnancy because it’s so safe and soothing. Women who have had regular reflexology sessions throughout their pregnancy often find that their labour is shorter and easier to manage with less dependency on painkillers. After the birth of your child, reflexology can also have a very beneficial effect on post-natal depression, hormone and anxiety levels.
Reflexology is based on the principle that there are certain points, known as “reflexes” on the feet, which correspond to specific parts of the body. Gentle pressure is applied to these reflex points, which is thought to trigger the release of endorphin, harnessing the body’s pain relief system and bringing about a sense of deep relaxation. People often report having several nights of significantly improved sleep immediately following their treatment.
