Pre-menstrual syndrome includes symptoms such as bloatedness, tiredness, irritability, anxiety, tension, depression, breast tenderness, fluid retention and headaches that occur most commonly in the week leading up to menstruation. Hormonal imbalance is central to many of these symptoms alongside a deficiency in certain nutrients. Regular Reflexology treatments in the lead up to monthly periods can reduce many symptoms associated with PMS. Reflexology helps balance the endocrine system and in conjunction with nutritional support can alleviate many of the symptoms associated with PMS. Reflexology is also extremely beneficial for irregular periods, hormonal imbalances, and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
During menopause a woman experiences a range of physical symptoms due to the hormonal changes taking place in her body. Symptoms can include fatigue, weight gain, depression, osteoporosis, hot flushes, increased perspiration, vaginal dryness, and reduced sex drive. An imbalanced diet, emotional stress and lack of exercise can lead to an increase in these symptoms. Reflexology can be extremely beneficial in supporting women at this time. The deeply relaxing nature of Reflexology can help with alleviating many of these symptoms while also reducing the stress and tension that cause some of these side effects. Optimum nutrition can be extremely beneficial in reducing symptoms alongside addressing a woman's increased nutritional needs as a result of hormonal shifts. A treatment plan is designed specifically for each individual woman’s needs and includes a course of Reflexology treatments, nuritional support, aromatherapy oil blends for home care, stress management and relaxation techniques.
