Reflexology is the technique of applying gentle pressure on the feet (or hands) to reflex points to bring about a state of deep relaxation, promote the healing process of the body itself, and help a person return to a state of equilibrium and well-being. It is a holistic complementary therapy that operates across body zones to release blockages and increase the flow of energy in the body (rather like the meridians an acupuncturist or shiatsu practitioner works on). In Ancient Egypt, China, Japan and India, reflexology has its origins.If you wish to learn more about this, visit Lakewood Reflexology.

Introduction Of Reflexology of Maternity
Maternity Reflexology can be used during and after pregnancy as pre-conceptual treatment and care. The fact that many midwives now integrate reflexology into their practice is indicative of its effectiveness. These life stages carry their own unique challenges, and daily reflexology can help maintain equilibrium and well-being when treating related symptoms and ailments. Balancing the endocrine system – the collection of glands that produce hormones from the body – is one of the key advantages of reflexology (chemical messengers). In fertility and pregnancy, hormones play a central role.
It is ideal for couples who hope to conceive to treat both partners to balance and calm them, and to get them into an optimal state for conception. There is a need for mental and emotional preparation in addition to requiring safe sperm and ova, as pregnancy can be a rollercoaster for both partners.

In terms of sleep, diet, stress levels, exercise, smoking, drinking and so on, the pair may want to take a closer look at their lifestyle. Reflexology, due to its balancing effects, has a strong reputation for helping couples conceive.
