Maternity Reflexology In Cambridge
Maternity Reflexology is a gentle treatment given to the feet and lower legs. Treating the body holistically (the body, mind and spirit unified) it encourages the body and mind to rebalance to its natural state of homeostasis.
Working on areas of the feet which correspond to the physiological framework of the body, these are stimulated by applying pressure by the fingers and thumbs. This is done using techniques such as massage, friction and stimulating pressure points.
Reflexology is very effective at preparing the body for birth and inducing labour (if in the last stages of pregnancy) and is a deeply relaxing treatment which will leave you feeling rested and recharged.

I had weekly Reflexology treatments throughout my second and third trimester.
I felt it really help to prepare my body for birth. My waters actually broke the evening after my last appointment!
Sophie is simply wonderful and I would recommend her to everyone.Katrina C
