How Often Should I Have Reflexology when Pregnant

Regular Reflexology sessions throughout pregnancy have shown to reduce 1st and 2nd stage labour times, reduce sensation associated with birth (pain) and improve healing times postnatally. But regular Reflexology sessions throughout your pregnancy can also help with the miriad of symptoms, side effects, and conditions of pregnancy as well. So, how often should a Pregnant person receive Reflexology?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Weeks 1 to 14: weekly or bi-weeekly treatments⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Frequent treatments during this Spring of your pregnancy help keep all hormones balanced which helps with symptoms of early pregnancy like fatigue nausea and frequent micturation. It also helps prevent loss of a viable pregnancy due to hormone imbalance or Chi imbalances.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Weeks 15-31: every 4 weeks⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
During the Summer and Fall of your Pregnancy, if you are not presenting with any conditions of pregnancy (oedema, hyperemsis gravidarum, high blood pressure, gestational diabetes etc..) then receiving treatment every 4 weeks is a recommended amount for preventative and maintenance of good health for both birther and babe.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Weeks 32-37: every 2 weeks⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As we near the Winter of your pregnancy we advise to start receiving Reflexology a little more frequently to ensure all the processes are maturing properly, discomfort of birther is kept as minimal as possible and all organs and systems that are displaced in pregnancy are supported as much as possible.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Weeks 37-42: weekly treatments⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Again with entering the Winter and birthing stage of your Pregnancy we want to ensure the good health and balance of birther and babe, ensure all development is complete and of good quality, prepare the birthers body and mind for the birth process as well as that of the babe.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If the birther reaches weeks 40-42 then they may decide to start receiving Reflexology twice a week due to the amazing support and refreshment they receive from Reflexology sessions, as well as taking advantage of some Reflexology for Labour Priming protocols.



A N X I E T Y : worry, concern, apprehension, apprehensiveness, uneasiness, unease, fearfulness, fear, disquiet, disquietude, inquietude, perturbation, agitation, angst, misgiving, nervousness, nerves, tension, tenseness, heebie-jeebies, butterflies (in one’s stomach), jitteriness, the jitters, twitchiness

Though the info graphic makes a good start on defining ANXIETY, it still doesn’t pain the whole picture. People living with anxiety disorder deal daily with the symptoms above plus many many more.

And ANXIETY is proven to be a MAJOR HORMONE DISRUPTOR for both male and female so the symptom list goes on…

How to manage your ANXIETY naturally: (try to do these things on a good day, we know how hard doing anything on a bad day can be)

♥ visit a natural therapy practitioner like a REFLEXOLOGIST to have your Central Nervous System sedated and rebalanced

♥ talk to a Herbalist or Naturopathic Doctor and see if Ashwaganda and Motherwort might be good additions to your daily regime. Other herbal anxiety medications include Reishi … you can see both and buy these products at @goodnnatural and @hollow_reed_hollistic

♥ try to get out for a daily walk or bike ride or yoga

♥ try meditation or mindfulness when you begin to notice your warning signs of impending episode, to reset and hopefully manage severity

♥ Try to get at least 8 hours of sleep every night

This list barely scrapes the surface, if you have more coping mechanisms to share, please post them in comments below!

N O T E :  some people NEED prescription medication to manage ANXIETY.. and that is MORE THAN OK! You do you, boo! Just know that those medications are more than likely really messing with your Fertility

Thyroid and Fertility, a Testimonial

Dawna is an early 20’s woman who knew since she was a little girl that she wanted to be a Stay At Home Mom with a house full of children.

Shortly after the birth of her 2nd child, Dawna’s thyroid function went off the scales and Western Medicine struggled to stabilize it. She was advised that she would not be able to conceive again while on Thyroid medication and her Thyroid fluctuating so wildly.

Dawna approached me to see if Reflexology could help her.

Using the highly evolved and evidence based Hormone Balancing Protocols of Barbara Scott’s ReproFlexology, I was able to facilitate Dawna’s body ability to stabilize itself and in 4 short weeks (not typical results) her levels were normal and she was able to regain control of her fertility.

Here is more, in Dawna’s words…

” I had my second child June of 2016 and after about 3-4 months I started losing a lot of weight really fast , I was concerned because I had already lost most of the “baby weight” and was now just losing more. I was losing about 18lbs every 2 weeks.

I ignored this though.

I was alway REALLY hot, like REALLLLLLY HOT.

Ignored that too thinking it was just my hormones.

Then my right eye started giving me problems. It would blink slower, close and stay closed and get super lazy. It would happen at about 8pm every night and with time it got earlier and earlier.

Finally I went and saw my dr and he tested my thyroid.

My levels were at 167 and are supposed to be under 4.

I was started on meds right away but had to give up breastfeeding due to the medication being unsafe.

The meds worked for a few weeks but then my levels went too low, and then too high and they never remained at a normal amount.

My dr knew I wanted to start trying to get pregnant soon, so they were trying everything to get the levels under control.

Nothing worked.

My son was almost about to turn one and I knew at his first birthday I wanted to start trying to conceive.

I reached out to Gloria and she told me she could help me, it would take 6 weeks of seeing her. 1 session a week.

I did it.

After 4 weeks my levels were tested and for the first time they were normal .

After my 6th session I decided to continue seeing her because I loved it so much.

April was the first month my levels were normal

May was the first month I had a normal period.

May is the month I got pregnant! My son hadn’t even turned one yet.

I was scared because of the risk of miscarriage with thyroid issues. I still am scared. But I’m 9 weeks pregnant and everything is going well so far, and I’m still seeing Gloria and my levels still remain normal.

The dr’s are shocked that my levels didn’t jump high with pregnancy.

New Pricing Structure

I want to spend a few minutes speaking to a new pricing structure that I am moving forward with and my reasoning for the restructuring.

For the last 3.5 years, my hourly rate has remained the same even though the quality of treatment and training of the Therapist has increased significantly.

In 2016 I became the first North American Reflexology Therapist to become Certified in the highly effective ReproFlexology – Reflexology for Fertility course, out of South Wales.

This training gives my clients access to superior hormone balancing protocols for both men and women that has changed the landscape of Fertility Medicine and hormone balancing throughout the age groups. Specific protocols for dealing with PCOS, Endometriosis, Progesterone Deficiency, Cystic Ovaries (etc), Sperm Morphology or Motility, Testicular Cancer, Hydrocele or Varicocele, (etc) each one a separate protocol, so completely different than the routine reflexology taught in many of the North American Reflexology schools.

In 2017 I completed the Maternity Reflexology Course which provided superior skills and knowledge in Fertility, Maternity, Labour Priming, Birth Support, Postpartum and Baby Care by the Maternity Reflexology Consortium out of the UK.

These new courses and new focus on Women’s Health, Fertility, Maternity and Birthing Support bring along with them more prep time before each client, more research for each new diagnosis, more time reading hormone panels and semen analysis reports and staying up to date on newest tests and supplements, as well as regular monitoring of Fertility App Charts and unlimited text and email support for my clients, as many of you already benefit from.

And as much as I cannot separate myself from this new training and superior protocols, I know how much my clientele appreciates the effectiveness of these new protocols as I implement them in my regular sessions as required.

The new pricing structure will begin October 1 2017. Please see chart below for comparison. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns about the new pricing structure. I would be happy to discuss any concerns with you.

Please head to to book your September appointments to take advantage of current pricing.
