Reflexology for Nausea in Pregnancy

Nausea in pregnancy, or more commonly morning sickness, affects over 90% of expectant mothers within their first trimester of pregnancy and despite it’s name it is not just confined to the morning!

In reality it is caused by a change in hormone levels in the body due to the pregnancy but morning sickness can leave you feeling tired and like you have a permanent hangover – not a nice way to start your pregnancy!

The goal with Reflexology is to bring the body to a state of homoeostasis.  Homoeostasis means ‘balance’ and is the state in which the body is regulating and maintaining itself  so that it can naturally work at its best.

Reflexology may be able to help reduce the feeling of nausea while also relaxing and calming you, to help you get a restful nights sleep. Reflexology is not aiming to change the level of  hormone being created by the pregnancy but to help sooth the digestive system and relax the mother to be.
