Pregnancy Massage and Reflexology can be an effective way to ease muscular pain and other discomforts, as well as reducing the extra stress on weight-bearing joints. The treatments stimulate the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller and feel-good hormone, leaving you feeling relaxed and refreshed.
Pregnancy Massage and Maternity Reflexology are used to help with the psychological and emotional impact of pregnancy and holistic, whole body or homeostasis treatments can help support an overall feeling of well-being.
With regular maintenance treatments before, during and after pregnancy the body systems can be supported through the journey.
