Mums can feel overwhelmed with the responsibility of looking after such a small, vulnerable new life, particularly with a first baby. This is a time when hormone levels drop rapidly and can leave women susceptible to depression.
This is when reflexology can be of huge benefit as it is a time when a little `me` time is really needed. Reflexology can help balance hormones and reduce stress and anxiety.
It is also beneficial for stimulating the lymphatic system and helping reduce postnatal fluid thus reducing swollen ankles.
New babies are welcome to join mum during the treatment as they find the session very relaxing especially if mum has had treatments during pregnancy.
