Hormonal imbalances are often thought of in terms of women’s problems, but in fact hormonal imbalances are responsible for controlling many of our body processes and have control over the systems within the body. Hormones control the growth of the skeleton and have an influence on muscles, connective tissues and organs such as the kidneys and liver. Hormones also control the activity of the thyroid gland and regulate water balance within the body by controlling the amount of water in the urine. Hormones enable the release of milk from the breasts during breastfeeding.
How Can Reflexology Help With Hormone Imbalances?
Reflexology does not aim to cure, diagnose or prescribe. Reflexology is very much an individual treatment which works on a holistic level, so it is not possible to know how an individual will react to a treatment. The theory is that Reflexology helps the body to restore it’s hormonal balance naturally.
Reflexology is based on the belief that energy flows around the body and that if the energy can flow freely then the body is thought to be in balance or in harmony. However if the energy flow is blocked then illnesses may arise.
Traditional Chinese medicine promotes the stimulation and flow of energy or “qi” through the channels in a body’s energy network to improve circulation, movement and overall quality of life.Reflexology has similar origins in Chinese medicine and it shares the concept that by working on specific pressure points on the feet then this can help to relieve stress, and promotes the body’s ability to find a natural balance which in turn promotes the body’s ability to heal.
Maternity Reflexology can be a great support to you whilst your body is going through so many physical changes and of course it is a wonderful opportunity for pregnant women to feel pampered, nurtured and relaxed. Reflexology may help to balance hormones, boost energy levels and to help the body to feel calm and relaxed. Many midwives now recommend Reflexology as part of maternity care.
Reflexology can also provide support for women during pre conception, fertility issues, pregnancy and during the post natal period.Always inform your midwife or consultant if you are having Reflexology during pregnancy.
