Reflexology can help relieve the symptoms and discomforts of pregnancy and birth by restoring and maintaining physical, psychological and emotional balance.
Treatments are available to expectant mothers from the point of conception throughout all three trimesters. I have to offer, a wealth of experience plus qualifications and knowledge gained from a number of midwife lead courses. Contact me for an initial chat and consultant.
For optimum benefits, reflexology is recommended for the full length of your pregnancy.
Reflexology for Conception
Reflexology treats the overall health of the whole person as well as areas affected by fertility, helping to rebalance hormones, reduce stress levels. Recommended for both Mother and Father to be.
From information gathered by Members of the Association of Reflexologists, 50% of clients seeking reflexology in connection with conception found themselves pregnant within 6 months.
Reflexology throughout Pregnancy
Can help maintain a healthy pregnancy, promote a positive birth outcome and normalise the birth process. Supporting the many physiological changes throughout pregnancy, reflexology can be a great way to relax, balance hormones and help with coping strategies. It aims to reduce morning sickness, ease back, sciatic, pelvic and joint pain, reduce water retention and improve digestion problems.
Looking after a new baby and recovering from birth can be tiring and stressful; it takes time to adjust to new routines. Reflexology can be beneficial for assisting self healing following birth and provide some ‘me’ time. It can help in reducing the symptoms of post natal depression.

I have been seeing Ruth for several years, and she has never failed to relieve my aches and pains, particularly lower back problems from the strains of a twin pregnancy. Recently I pulled a muscle in my calf whilst running and developed sciatica through my whole leg leaving me with great difficulty walking and taking painkillers constantly. I was due to go to Glastonbury the following week and I was concerned that I wouldn’t be able to cope with all the walking on uneven ground and slippy mud, let alone dancing! I booked an hour session with Ruth and she said she would try a Myofascial Release. I am not sure what wonders she worked but I left actually able to walk normally, and did not have any further pain or need to take any painkillers. The relief was incredible, and I was able to enjoy the festival without any issues.
I came to see Ruth after suffering a miscarriage. I was holding onto a lot of grief and stress and felt that in order to get pregnant again I needed to relax, and have some quiet “me” time.
I had heard that reflexology could help with improving sleep and reducing stress levels and so I decided to give it a go.
Ruth was kind, informative and made me feel at ease. The reflexology helps me feel calm, I always sleep better afterwards and I think it releases tension.
I am now 22 weeks pregnant and I am having pregnancy reflexology which is helping with my pregnancy symptoms. I always look forward to my treatment with Ruth.
