If you are in need of relaxation or you have general aches and pains, Reiki is very beneficial at relieving tension and balancing the nervous system inducing a very relaxed state for your body to unwind and recoup. It is also very helpful and encouraging labor if you are overdue, and can help to move baby into better alignment for labor.
If you are suffering from alignment issues or a deeper level of pain you might want to try the Integrated Bowen & Emmett treatments to resolve these problems.
Both these treatment styles will support you during pregnancy and we can discuss your preferences.
What to expect during a treatment
You can expect to remain clothed and comfortable, treatment can be done through light clothing.
Reiki treatments are done lying on a massage table, either on your back or side whatever is most comfortable for you. Cushioning is then placed appropriately for maximum comfort and relaxation.
Depending on what stage of pregnancy, an integrated treatment may be done in combination of standing, sitting and laying on a massage table. Whatever is required to be effective with your comfort in mind.
Treatment can be done at any stage of pregnancy, we would encourage regular monthly sessions to assist you throughout your pregnancy journey but of course this is entirely up to the individual. We feel it best that you follow your own time table, and will be there to support you whenever you feel in need.
