Naturopath Specialising In The Family
Do you know what a Naturopath is? Or wonder how one might be able to support you and your baby during pregnancy and beyond? Whilst looking after you, as a Naturopathic Physician, I follow a set of principles to firstly keep you and your baby safe, and to address the cause not symptoms. A Naturopath also treats each person as an individual as no two people experience anything in exactly the same way. In my practice I use around 15 different therapies to create a bespoke treatment plan just for you.
Specialising in the family means my care starts with you during pregnancy. Regular pre-natal reflexology is an excellent treatment to have as it gives you ‘me time’ and allows you to switch off and relax for an hour. It can also reduce and remove side effects experienced as your body constantly changes and adapts to house and nourish your baby. Your baby will also gain secondary benefits from this gentle yet effective treatment as they feel everything that you do. All you have to do is take your shoes and socks off! Depending on location in London, I can come to you at home.
If you have a specific health complaint you want to address during pregnancy, I can also look into that with you using the other therapies I am trained in. Depending on what you need most to keep you happy and healthy I could use, for example, nutrition, herbal teas and essential oils.
After your baby is born your body once again encounters change as it slowly returns to how it was. Reflexology once again supports this process as it aids your body’s natural healing processes. The most relaxing part of this treatment is that I will come to your home (depending on where in London), so you can have the treatment whilst you cuddle your new baby, or have them sleeping next to you so you can also close your eyes.
I can also teach baby massage to you and so importantly to the daddy. This allows them to have hands on time with their baby that isn’t just nappy or clothes changing to strengthen their bond. Baby massage is beneficial for so many things; reducing colic and constipation, increasing sleep, strengthening the immune system, and assisting many other important developmental processes. Baby massage is taught for an hour once a week for 4 weeks. I can come to you (depending on area in London) teaching you one to one or with you and friends with the maximum of 4 babies.
