The focus is to stimulate points on the feet, known as reflexes, that correspond or mirror your organs, tissues and systems (such as your nervous or reproductive system). The treatment is designed to bring about a shift, change or rebalance in your energy and thus your well-being. It is a very relaxing and safe therapy.
The techniques can be specifically adapted to work through each stage of your menstrual cycle encouraging your body to re-balance and shift towards, and to regain its natural rhythm and flow.

Reproductive Reflexology, Fertility, IVF and Natural Conception
Reproflexology™ is a specific form of Reflexology that helps to de-stress the body, calm the hormonal system and encourage the cycle to regularise. The techniques are adapted to treat each part of the natural cycle or to support an IVF Protocol which is why it differs from standard Reflexology. It also encourages the cycle to return after miscarriage. For more information, have a look at my blog Whats so good about fertility reflexology? featured on Dr Larisa Corda’s website.
Whether addressing the effects of morning sickness, or discomforts such as lower back ache and achy joints or swollen feet, Reflexology is wonderfully relaxing and beneficial during pregnancy. It can help to address constipation, fatigue, heartburn, insomnia, sciatica and the emotional disturbances and mood swings. You can have treatment at any time of your pregnancy including during the first 12 weeks and especially when you get close to term.
Inducing and Encouraging Labour
Near the end of the third trimester, techniques can be used to encourage the body to go into labour. Treating you prior to your due date, on and around or post due date usually brings a great sense of relaxation and reduction in any discomforts, encouraging the body towards labour.
Some women experience a ‘low’ often called ‘Baby Blues’ a few weeks after giving birth. This may be caused by a combination of reduced sleep and hormonal disruption. Reflexology is excellent at helping to de-stress and calm the body, aiding sleep, rebalancing hormones and soothing you postnatally, giving you time to adjust to the arrival of your little one!
Hormonal Imbalance & Menopausal Issues
