One of the things I love the most about living in Ibiza is that is feels so free and open. It’s no wonder so many families are choosing to raise families here. I feel very blessed to have worked with pregnant women here on the island supporting them throughout their pregnancy, with reflexology. It’s such a personal thing, and so it’s a real honour to be a part of it.
How can maternity reflexology benefit you?
Studies have shown that reflexology can be successful in reducing the length of the first stage of labour, reducing pain in labour and improving sleep after the birth.
As a qualified maternity reflexologist I am able to work with you safely and effectively throughout the duration of your pregnancy adapting each session depending on which trimester you are in, and any symptoms you may have. As opposed to general reflexology, there are certain techniques that can be used to balance the endocrine system, which is very specific to maternity reflexology, and which is what makes it different. It can also help reduce swelling in the legs with lymphatic drainage and can help ease pelvic girdle pain, and jaw pain. In addition to this it can help with other symptoms which may occur throughout pregnancy such as, heart burn, back pain, dizziness, nausea, stress and anxiety.
I have had clients who have come throughout their pregnancy, whilst others just choose reflexology in the last trimester to help prepare for the birth. Both are fine, and it totally depends upon yourself and other factors, such as finances.
Quite often women contact me for an appointment when they are already over due, hoping that it will help to induce the baby. Whilst there is some anecdotal evidence of this, this is not proven to be true, however if the baby is ready then using techniques to relax, and stimulating the pituitary gland so that it releases oxytocin, may have a positive affect. I have received pictures of new borns the days after a reflexology session, which always puts a big smile on my face.
I have had a number of reflexology sessions both before and during my pregnancy. I didn’t know much about it before meeting Gini, but now I am totally fascinated by it. I can honestly say that Gini was able to connect with me and make me feel relaxed and really helped with various aches, pains and stresses I was experiencing at the time. She also offers a natural lift face produce which is quite simply divine..beautiful products, amazing touch and a special soul. Thank you Gini! Looking forward to the next time!

I have had many sessions of Gini, however having her sessions when pregnant where the absolute best. As any pregnant woman knows you need those little touches through your term to make life feel good again. Gini understands a pregnant woman’s needs and body. Leading up to the birth she gave me a few sessions to release pressure in the body, alleviate the adrenal glands making me very relaxed, working with parts of the body to help relax the right muscles for preparation of birth. Quite fascinating how powerful reflexology treatments can be! I can´t recommend Gini enough. Thank you for being such a star. (Anne-Marie Duperouzel, The Ibiza Kitchen)
