Just as an athlete prepares for a marathon with regular exercise, specific foods and supplements during pregnancy, Dr Motha has found that there are very simple and effective treatments which help the mother’s body to be birth-fit and these treatments include:

Reflexology

Reflexology

Dr Motha pioneered the use of reflexology for pregnant mothers in 1987 and an initial trial was carried out in Forest Gate London in 1992.  The outcome of receiving a set of ten treatments during pregnancy was amazing, with 89% of women having normal deliveries, the average duration of labour times being 2 – 6 hours.
Reflexology is a pressure point treatment on the feet.  Each point detoxes and relaxes organs and muscles in the body and increases energy levels.   These treatments on the feet are extremely helpful in preparing the mother for birth.

Creative Healing Massage treatments

Creative Healing was introduced into the programme as a result of the obvious need for the lower back, sacrum and coccyx (together with the muscles associated with those areas), to be extremely mobile and free from congestion to facilitate a gentle birth.

Bowen technique

Bowen simply “re-connects” parts of the body with the brain, using the many receptors distributed throughout the body.  The practitioner, using thumbs and fingers, makes very gentle, rolling-type moves over precise points on the body.  Bowen can begin at any time during pregnancy.  It is safe and non-invasive.  Bowen has particular uses for relieving back pain and sciatica.  If the baby is overdue, certain gentle Bowen moves on the coccyx can be done to encourage labour.
