Experiences with reflexology in pregnancy
For everyone who is heavily pregnant a reflexology massage is highly recommended! Very relaxing, restful and pain relieving! I had never been to a reflexology treatment before so I went there with a blank slate. The days after the massage I experienced much more rest, I was able to sleep a lot better, I had less difficulties with bowel movements and I had more energy!
Floor really took the time for me, she was sincerely interested in me and I felt very comfortable with her! Very professional. With 39 weeks I will go again for sure!
Foot reflexology during pregnancy what to expect?
The reflexology treatment takes place on a massage table. In most cases you lie flat on the table in the early stages of pregnancy, and I have pillows to support your head, and knees. But I also have a back support which is very comfortable, especially when you are heavily pregnant its nice to be able to sit up straight. The reflexology I apply takes place form the knee to the bottom of the foot.
