Hormones are crucial to fertility and health right throughout your life. They control menstrual cycles, your responses to stimuli, control growth, sleep cycles, energy levels among other things. For various reasons our bodies can start producing too much or too little of any hormone which can have negative effects on both our general health and our fertility health. Reflexology can help by encouraging relaxation which enables balance and also by having a direct effect on hormonal glands, which encourages a return to balance.
1 Hour Session €50
During pregnancy, reflexology has been shown to be a great help at easing the nasty niggles that mums-to-be suffer. It’s believed to help balance the hormonal and emotional rollercoaster that pregnancy creates and can ease anxiety symptoms. Your journey through pregnancy and post-natal is a time of major changes to your hormone balance. Different hormones are needed for every stage of conception, pregnancy, breast-feeding and re-storing equilibrium. Reflexology can help you adapt to these changes quickly thus reducing unpleasant mood swings or physical discomfort.
Infant & Child Reflexology
1 Hour Session €50
New arrivals can also benefit from reflexology. Short, gentle sessions can help to soothe and settle upset tots. Softly stroking the feet helps to relax them and gentle pressure while breastfeeding can help the baby to digest effectively. Babies’ feet have undeveloped arches, and their skin and bones are usually fairly soft making reflexology an effective and fast modality for babies. By applying gentle pressure to congested areas in the feet, blockages can be released to restore the flow of energy to the whole body.

Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling). It's also a wonderful opportunity to relax the mind & body and connect with baby in a holistic loving way.
A Message from Marie Byrne about our new BRING YOUR BABY service at Glosna House . . . .
Glosna House Founder & Psychotherapist
Dear New Mama.... I see you
It can be really tough going, like REALLY tough going, as this new life challenges your body, your mind, your sanity, your heart & your relationships. When your baby is born, so are you, Mama. You are born into this new life called Motherhood, where nothing is ever the same, everything is heightened & there you are in the middle of it all, expected to be a certain way.....
Well let's keep it real, it is beautiful & traumatic in equal measures and I for one SEE YOU & all that you sacrifice & go through. The first 6 months of life as a new Mama can be the toughest so with this in mind we have launched a new service at Glosna with Holistic Therapist, Doula & Womens Maternal Health Therapist Maria Flynn. It's simply called "Bring your baby"
We want to give you the option to BRING YOUR BABY WITH YOU so you can enjoy a Holistic treatment in one of our private treatments rooms at Glosna.
Is this service for you?
Do you find it challenging to get out of the house for some essential SELF CARE?
Do you need to connect to other Mamas who get it?
Nobody to help you during the day? Or maybe at all?
Are you feeling isolated?
Is your body in need of some Holistic Support?
Maybe you do not want to be separated from your baby?
Are you breastfeeding & need to take your baby with you wherever you go?
Do you just fancy getting out of the house without feeling you need to dress up or 'look the part'?
Do you want to simply feel cared for?
Do you need reminding that YOU MATTER too Mama?

Post Partum Counselling for Parents
€50 to €65 (reduced rate available for those in need)
Postpartum depression (PPD) is a type of depression that affects some women after giving birth. Symptoms include sadness, changes in sleeping and eating patterns, low energy, anxiety, and irritability. Typically, the condition develops within 4 to 6 weeks after giving birth, but it can sometimes take several months to appear.
It is not known why PPD occurs. However, depression is not a sign that you do not love your new arrival, as some mothers fear. It is a psychological disorder that can be effectively treated with the help of support groups, counselling, and sometimes medication. This type of depression does not only affect mothers. One study found that around 10 percent of new fathers experience postpartum or prenatal depression. The highest rates can be found 3 to 6 months after childbirth.
