Reproductive Reflexology

Jackie  is a fully qualified member of The Association of Reproductive Reflexologists (ARR).

Reproductive Reflexology can be used as a stand-alone treatment to enhance your natural fertility or with all forms of assisted conception including Clomid, IUI, IVF and ICSI.

Members of the ARR are specially trained, using structured and prescriptive treatment protocols, to support couples through all phases of their natural cycles or through their assisted conception programme.

How does Reproflexology work?

  • It uses specific and prescriptive treatment protocols to address fertility health for both men and women
  • It aims to regulate menstrual cycles and ensure that each stage is functioning at its best
  • It aims to improve sperm production and functionality
  • It aims to alleviate any underlying conditions, including stress, which can negatively affect fertility
  • It is one of the most effective forms of integrated medicine using results from medical testing to measure improvements

Treatment Plan

I recommend weekly treatments throughout one menstrual cycle and then , treatments twice per month until your cycle is functioning well. The recommended treatment plan for men is weekly Reflexology treatments for 8-12 weeks to encourage the production of healthy sperm.

The treatment plan will be bespoke and you will receive advice on diet, lifestyle and dealing with stress to support your fertility journey. tailored to your specific fertility needs which will be discussed at your initial fertility consultation. 

Support for IVF Treatment

My treatments are aimed at reducing stress and anxiety during your fertility journey which can be a lonely journey, whilst  allowing time and space for relaxation. I use structured and prescriptive reflexology protocols to support each phase of the drug treatment cycle that is being undertaken and also to help minimise any side effects.

I am available in between treatments to discuss progress and offer emotional support, especially during the two week wait when anxiety levels can be highest.

If your treatment is unsuccessful initially I can continue to work with you on a weekly basis to assist your physical and emotional recovery and then we can work to re-regulate your cycle and prepare for any further treatment.

Support after pregnancy loss

Reflexology can be hugely supportive during this time as the physical and emotional trauma of pregnancy loss can be overwhelming and the resulting anxiety, stress and disappointment may further affect your fertility. It is incredibly relaxing and calming allowing space and time to heal and treatments can be tailored to help your body recover and to re regulate your cycle for when you feel able to start trying again.
