Maternity Reflexology in Hornchurch

Based in Hornchurch we can easily assist patients from Upminster, Gidea Park, Emerson Park, Romford, Cranham and other surrounding areas

Maternity reflexology is aimed specifically at women during pre-conception, pregnancy and the postnatal period.





The aim is to create a treatment plan which can be used to help increase your chances of conceiving.  Reflexology works by balancing the hormones and assisting ovulation.   It can also help you to relax and relieve the stress that can sometimes be associated with trying to conceive.





When you find out that you are expecting a baby, nothing will have prepared you for the huge changes happening within your body.  These changes can affect the hormonal, emotional and physiological balance of your body.  Reflexology can help to alleviate or prevent the discomfort arising from this imbalance and can help to increase energy levels and relieve some of the discomforts of pregnancy including:


Relief of stress and anxiety

Reduce heartburn and other digestive disorders

Relieve backache

Fluid retention

Insomnia and sleep problems




Ligament and groin pain

Nausea and vomiting

High blood pressure

Pelvic girdle pain (Symphysis pubis dysfunction)


Research has shown that expectant mums who had regular maternity reflexology treatments throughout their pregnancy had a marked reduction in the duration of their labour.


Reflexology is safe and effective during pregnancy but is not recommended if there has been a history of severe hypertension, premature labour, placenta previa or vaginal bleeding.  We also do not treat clients until they are a minimum of 13 weeks pregnant.  Always check with your midwife if you suspect there could be a problem with having regular treatments.



Post Natal Reflexology


The postnatal period from birth until six to eight weeks later is another time of huge changes and reflexology is a good way to help mum "get back on her feet".  Reflexology can help to re-balance the hormone levels within the body and improve the feeling of general well being.  Research has shown that reflexology is excellent for maintaining or increasing milk supply as well as helping to alleviate many of the following postnatal problems:


Postnatal depression

Insomnia and sleep problems

Stress and anxiety


Urine retention


Engorged breasts

Help your menstrual cycle return to normal
