Priming for Labour

There is no evidence that reflexology will induce labour, however, it does help the body to relax at a stressful time and to reach the optimum level for when the body is ready to go into labour naturally.

Suitable from 37 weeks, your 1 hour treatment will help to stimulate the hormones to prepare you for labour applying acupressure to your cervix reflex and encouraging it to efface and dilate. Reflexology is encouraged once or twice a week after 37 weeks to ensure you are ready, calm and balanced for the birth.

Help to restore your energy and pass the beautiful relaxed energy onto your baby. A lovely bonding experience together.
