Support During Menopause
Reflexology may help improve mood, release tension and aid sleep; helping us to
cope better and ease stress during this transitional time.
The use of Shiatsu/Acupoints during your treatment may also have a beneficial effect.
Many women may think that menopause signals the beginning of the end. We misunderstand our bodies and assume that they are failing us. However, post-menopause, most women will have 30-40 more years of life to live. It’s a time to pause, take stock and evaluate how we want to spend the wisest years of our lives, as well as find ways to take the best care of our minds and bodies to maximise our health.
Dealing with this natural transition, where women’s bodies move out of the childbearing years and head towards a liberated and more relaxed phase of life, isn’t always easy. Many women experience symptoms like mood swings, hot flushes, insomnia, headaches and fatigue, and anxiety associated with perimenopause and menopause.
How can Reflexology help support you through the menopause?
The journey into menopause is associated with falling oestrogen levels. Oestrogen has many functions, including a direct impact on the stress hormone Cortisol.
Reflexology has been shown to:
- Significantly reduce anxiety
- Release tension
- Aid relaxation
- Impove mood and wellbeing
- Aid sleep.
Thus helping us to cope better during this transitional time.
Reflexology acknowledges that every person is a unique individual. The only way to know if reflexology will help you is to try it.
Reflexology is not an alternative to seeking medical help. Reflexologists do not diagnose, prescribe or claim to cure. They are there to support your journey.
