VRT is a short effective treatment that can be used alongside a conventional reflexology session. It is a technique where feet are briefly treated in a standing or sitting weight bearing position.
Deeper reflexes can be accessed via the top of the foot. VRT was originally developed to help orthopaedic (skeletal) conditions but has proved successful in treating many health problems.
VRT enhances a conventional reflexology treatment.
Reflexology can be used in all stages of pregnancy - preconception, pregnancy and postnatal.
The aim is to ensure mother stays as healthy as possible during each cycle. This also keeps baby happy.
Studies carried out have shown that reflexology can dramatically speed up labour and reduce pain.
Many of my clients have also found that reflexology helps to start pregnancy naturally when overdue.
Symptoms of each stage of pregnancy can be relieved such as morning sickness, backache, indigestion, oedema, insomnia, hormonal imbalances, nausea and headaches.
After the birth reflexology can help balance the body aiding recovery and boosting energy levels. This can also help in the process of breast feeding.
