Whilst planning for a family should be a time of excitement, for some it can prove rather challenging. Conception is a complex journey, as there are many interrelated factors, such as the correct balance of hormones and the timing of the ovulation period. Finding balance between the aforementioned factors alone can prove rather stressful for a couple. At Remedies LDN, I believe in creating a safe space for my clients, to encourage them to breathe, reflect and take some much needed time for themselves.
One major influencing factor of an individuals ability to conceive, is stress. Stress can have a profound affect on our health, therefore I aim to work with the client to encourage true relaxation, and promote better functioning of the body's natural healing processes. Through the combination of a calming environment, tailored treatment plan, and holistic lifestyle suggestions, I aim to create a healthy and holistic environment ready for conception.
When pregnant, clients can receive treatments after the first trimester (12 weeks). Taking care of your health and wellbeing during this journey is deeply important. Reflexology is a safe and gentle treatment that can help with the many symptoms associated with pregnancy, such as; back pain, mood swings, lack of sleep, sickness, and fluid retention.
Reflexology can also be very helpful in supporting a client postnatally; research has shown that Reflexology can support breastfeeding, by encouraging the production of key hormones prolactin and oxytocin. It can also promote deep relaxation, increase circulation, encourage immune system functioning, and allow some you-time, which is rarely prioritised whilst adapting to parenthood.
Please note, Reflexology does not claim to diagnose, or cure. I do not offer a medical treatment. If you are struggling with conceiving, it is advisable that you speak to your G.P. I cannot guarantee that the end result will be pregnancy.
