Gentle Reflexology Therapy for Relaxation and Well-Being

Catrine Rogers
Reflexology is a traditional foot massage which works by stimulating your body’s innate healing abilities.

On your feet are small reflex points which correspond with different areas of your body.

Gently massaging these points with natural oils can help you reach a state of deep relaxation so that your body can begin to heal.

Reflex Touch is very similar to traditional reflexology and uses the same basic principles, but the massage techniques we use during the treatment are very gentle, helping you to reach deeper levels of relaxation.

Why reflexology?

​Many people are now choosing reflexology during pregnancy and beyond, as it can offer many benefits. These include:

Deep relaxation


Reduction in anxiety


More restful sleep


Improved back pain


Easing constipation


Relieving heartburn


Alleviating pelvic girdle pain


Helping to prepare your body for labour.

However you view reflexology, there is no doubt that it provides a period of time where you have one-to-one attention from a qualified professional in an understanding and non-judgemental listening environment. ​Reflex Touch can offer an alternative to traditional medical stimulation of labour by allowing for space and reassurance. This can stimulate Oxytocin, the love hormone. However, it’s important to remember that even natural induction is still induction, and you may prefer to let your baby arrive in their own time.

The stats

What does the research say about reflexology in pregnancy and the perinatal period?


  • Two studies have shown that reflexology in pregnancy significantly reduced pain during labour and reduced the length of the first stage of labour
  • One study showed improved quality of sleep in postnatal women
  • One study showed that six weekly treatments of reflexology prior to giving birth for women who experienced low back and/or pelvic girdle pain during their pregnancy significantly reduced the second stage of labour by 44.3 minutes
  • Reflexology reduced pain and stress levels for women with low back pain or pelvic girdle pain
  • Foot reflexology was found to have a positive effect in lowering the total anxiety scores of women in labour

About Catrine

Catrine Rogers

I trained as a reflexologist in 2004 with Patricia Morrell, the founder and creator of Reflex Touch (a lighter reflexology technique).

Since then, I’ve been lucky enough to work as resident reflexologist at the BBC Club at Broadcasting House and Television Centre and the YWCA Central Club in London. I now offer mobile treatments in and around South East London.​

I found Reflex Touch to be an invaluable therapy during my own pregnancies, as it allows for total relaxation while stimulating the body’s natural abilities to heal and re-balance.

This led me to continue my professional development with Reflex Touch teacher Samantha Selby, who encouraged my passion for helping women with a focus on fertility, maternity, and post-natal treatments.

What do I need to do in order to have a treatment?

Nothing at all. If you come to see me in a clinic, or if I come to you for a mobile session, pillows, towels, and blankets will be provided so that you are able to fully relax while you have your treatment.

You will need to take off your socks, as a light oil is applied which helps smooth the massage of your feet.

Do you need to know anything about me before the treatment?

Only if you have any allergies to any of the oils used. If you have a nut allergy, I will need to bring an alternative.

I will take a full case history when I meet for the first time to get an idea of your general health. All of this is kept confidential.

How long does the treatment last?
Generally, treatments last between 35 and 45 minutes, but first appointments are often a little longer as it’s important to take a full case history beforehand. If you are pregnant, it might be a shorter treatment as there are certain areas of the feet which must be avoided during pregnancy.
At which point during my pregnancy is it safe for me to have the treatment?
Generally speaking, we suggest booking an appointment after you have had your 12-week scan; some people prefer to start treatment even later than that. It is also never too late to have a treatment. Some people even have treatment during labour to help them relax during the early stages. Other people like to book a reflexology treatment to help labour begin, but it is important to know that any induction treatment is still an induction, and may accelerate labour in an uncomfortable way.
