By including Gentle Release Therapy into my Labour Prep Treatment we can work on any fears, worries or anxieties you might have that could perhaps be stopping you from going into Labour.  By holding certain points on your body where we store these emotions and by using Acu-touch, we can help to release tension and restriction from the body allowing these areas to open and create more space for the baby to flow through with more ease.

The effects of Reflexology on Labour Outcomes - Dr Gowri Motha and Dr Jane McGrath

Thirty seven of sixty four pregnant women who where were offered free refelxology completed the set course of ten treatments. The effects of reflexology on labour outcomes were perceived as outstanding. In total, the average first stage was 5 hours, second stage 16 minutes, and third stage 7 minutes. This is compared to textbook figures of 16 to 24 hours' first stage and 1 to 2 hour's second stage.

Pregnancy Reflexology

"If there were an eleventh star out of ten I would definitely give it to Carly. She has been my reflexologist through both of my awful pregnancies which has brought me relief and comfort of some of my debilitating symptoms. I have tried other reflexologist in the past and no one else comes close!"
