WHAT IS THE KRUCHIK METHOD OF REFLEXOLOGY FOR PREGNANCY AND BIRTH?

 

The Kruchik method of reflexology is a ground-breaking unique method of reflexology created by Mauricio Kruchik from Israel, which he teaches worldwide.

 

The Kruchik Method is based on the creation of pleasure to fight pain and the belief that all body reserves are there to serve the patient's own reserves, empowering them to deal with the pain but with a different therapeutic approach, never fighting the pain head on but educating the body to find and use their own medicines and creating pleasure, so that this be reconciled with all its resources to create a deep and unwavering sense of wellbeing.

 

This methodology includes exploration, mapping, understanding and treatment of pain through a combination of techniques.

 

Reflexology is safe throughout all three trimesters. It can be used to prime you for the birth and then help re-balance you after the birth.
