Complementary Therapies

Complementary therapies can be booked as individual, one off sessions or as part of a package. Different therapies may be combined to create a bespoke experience to suit your needs.


All sessions can take place in the comfort of your own home, at a time that suits you. 

I am fully trained through www.Expectancy.co.uk

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to treat specific conditions in pregnancy, or just for relaxation use. 


I will work with you to create a bespoke blend of oils which are safe to use in pregnancy and designed to treat conditions such as nausea and vomiting, swelling, back ache or anxiety. You will receive a relaxing massage using your unique blend of oils, and will have the remaining blend to keep.


Your personal blend of essential oils could be used for massage, in an oil burner, in the bath, or simple kept at hand for inhalation when needed.

Reflex Zone Therapy

Reflex Zone Therapy is a method of treating physical, mental and emotional issues by using a specific massage of the nerves located on the feet. It can also be used a relaxation therapy.

I can provide Reflex Zone Therapy specifically designed for pregnancy. I can also provide therapy that stimulates acupressure points designed to induce labour.

Moxibustion

Moxibustion is based on a Chinese medicine therapy and is a form of heat therapy. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi (chi) in the body. It is helpful in turning a breech baby to a head down position. This is best commenced between 34 and 36 weeks, but can be done later. 


I will check the position of the baby and listen to the foetal heart, then fully explain the treatment and  provide you with the Moxasticks for you to use at home. If needed, I will return for another visit to re-check the position of the baby.


Moxibustion is not suitable for all pregnant women, so a detailed medical history will need to be taken before booking. 


£50.00


Others

I can also offer sessions on encouraging optimal foetal positioning such as use of Rebozo and exercises including Miles Circuit.

Please get in touch if you would like any information about any of the above therapies, or would like to discuss creating a bespoke package.
