Are you struggling to conceive? This can be an emotionally exhausting and stressful time for you and your partner and often the causes for infertility can go unexplained. I aim to support couples and individuals with empathy and compassion on their fertility journey. Reproductive Reflexology is a specific form of Reflexology which does not cure fertility problems but it focuses on treating people in a holistic way.
Reproductive Reflexology may help to :
- Prepare the body for conception by “kick starting” the endocrine system.
- Balancing hormones to help boost ovulation.
- Reducing stress levels to create the best body ecology for pregnancy.
- Regularise menstrual cycles
- Help to reduce the symptoms of PCOS and Endometriosis
- May help to reduce Premenstrual and Postmenstrual symptoms
- Aid natural conception and fertility
- Support assisted reproductive techniques such as (IUI, IVF,ICSI CYCLES)
Before trying to conceive it is a good idea to prepare your body three months in advance by making changes to lifestyle and diet and with reflexology. Regular Reflexology may encourage the body to restore it’s natural balance by “kick starting” the body’s endocrine system leading to a balance in hormones and a boost ovulation and thus conception. Reproductive Reflexology may also help to reduce stress and anxiety in relation to assisted conception procedures such as IVF.
A thorough consultation is conducted initially to look at all the factors surrounding your fertility problems and it is advisable to undergo some routine fertility tests with your GP before your consultation. The recommended treatment plan for women is weekly Reflexology treatments for the first 4-6 weeks (through the length of your cycle), treatments then reduce to twice per month. 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.
