Post Pregnancy Reflexology
Following birth, reflexology can aid recovery.
- Encourages breast milk production
- Helps relieve urinary retention
- Can help guard against post natal depression by regulating hormone levels post delivery by working on the endocrine system of the body
Many couples experiencing difficulty in conceiving have found reflexology very beneficial in helping them achieve pregnancy. It is advised that both the mother-to-be and her partner are treated with reflexology.
Reflexology, when applied in conjunction with conventional medicine, may be beneficial to a person receiving treatment for cancer, and can be considered an integral part of the healing process.
