When an effort is put in to keep mummy comfortable and pampered, she will experience her pregnancy in the best possible way – an effort that is worth it for everyone, including the husband. The baby is happy because he is growing in a harmonious environment, so how many more excuses do you need to train your husband in the wonderful benefits of pregnancy reflexology?
What is pregnancy reflexology?
Pregnancy reflexology works on the basis that your feet (and hands) are linked to all the organs in your body. By applying pressure to certain nerve endings primarily on the feet, it can relief a broad series of common ailments and pregnancy symptoms. This pressure on key points allows blocked energy to flow freely, which in turn increases blood flow to the stimulated and corresponding body part. And aside from its many benefits, it feels really good too.
