Having children is one of those life events that combines the greatest joy with moments of stress and anxiety. During pregnancy, parents-to-be wonder if their child will be healthy; if they will be good parents; if they will have the financial resources they need to care for their child for 18 years and into adulthood. . . .
Struggling to get pregnant adds its own set of pressures. Wanting to get pregnant but not having it happen causes stress. If there are fertility problems and costly treatments ensue, an extra layer of financial stress as well as the possible emotions of guilt, worry, and uncertainty are added to the whole process. A similar process may occur with the decision to adopt--another costly way to have a baby which involves a lot of paperwork, scrutiny, waiting, and anxiety-producing uncertainty. The well-known fact that couples frequently get pregnant after they stop trying or after they have adopted a child is testimony to the way stress may interfere with the body's natural ability to conceive.If you are looking to relax during this process, our services can help. Reiki can help to prepare the body energetically while providing an experience of deep relaxation.
Meditation and Hypnosis can help you to explore and release unconscious blocks and visualize a positive outcome. In addition, it's so empowering to learn how to relax yourself whenever you need or want to. Using self-hypnosis and meditative relaxation skills during fertility treatments, for example, can powerfully reduce the stress of the experience.
Biofeedback can also prepare the body energetically, but a woman should be sure she is not pregnant before requesting this service. It's also great for children of all ages. You can choose a single service or combine them to create your own customized program. Call now to discuss your needs.
