Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas on the feet. Reflexology is reviving and is an effective way to alleviate stress.
The theory behind reflexology is that these points on the feet correspond to systems of the body. Pressure applied to these areas affects the organs and benefits the person's overall health. Usually ten sessions will result in the most benefit but some people report amazing results in only one treatment!
Several studies funded by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health indicate that reflexology may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, and enhance relaxation and sleep.

Reflexology can assist the body’s natural hormones to release in order to start the contractions and reduce the possibility of an artificial induction. Ask your doula if it is time to receive a reflexology session and get your contraction hormones pumping!
