Pregnancy can be the most exciting, and equally exhausting, time of your life and in those rare moments when you’re not dancing on air or completely freaking out, you may be wondering what on earth is happening to your body and how you can enjoy and make the most of this thrilling, but sometimes scary, time.

Some women get away with virtually no pregnancy symptoms, sailing through the whole process with ease, while others experience the full range of side-effects, including sore breasts, unimagined fatigue and exhaustion, nausea and vomiting, cravings, an overactive bladder, swollen ankles and headaches to name but a few. A healthy lifestyle is always important but in this time of rapidly changing hormone levels it’s more important than ever to care for yourself and your growing baby and to get as much rest as you possibly can.

Reiki not only helps with the physical side-effects of pregnancy, it can also provide you with emotional help, bringing about a deep sense of calm and positivity to you and your unborn baby. Your baby naturally tunes into your emotions and if you are feeling calm and relaxed he/she will respond to those feelings, enabling them to feel completely safe and comfortable inside the womb, which can only be a good thing for you both.

Reiki is completely safe and is suitable throughout all stages of pregnancy. It provides a gentle, yet powerful, non-invasive treatment to help relieve the symptoms associated with pregnancy, allowing every part of your stretched and aching mind and body to relax and rejuvenate.

Reiki can help in so many ways, allowing you to enjoy every step of your pregnancy. So if you are experiencing the full gauntlet of side-effects, suffer from headaches or backache, or just need help relaxing, treat yourself to a pregnancy Reiki treatment. Once your baby arrives sleep and relaxation will be very precious so make the most of this time and enjoy it while you can, pamper yourself and put your pregnancy first!
