Fertility & Pre-Conception Reflexology

Reflexology has had many successes in treating couples with fertility issues.

The Association of Reflexologists report on their website that “… on average about 50% of clients seeking help through reflexology for infertility, find themselves pregnant within 6 months of commencing treatment.” AoR.

These are significant results and reflexologists who specialise in maternity reflexology report higher levels of success.

Reflexology is effective in assisting with different fertility issues, and can help with:

  • natural conception
  • treating conditions that impact fertility (e.g. PCOS, endometriosis or fibroids)
  • treating diagnosed subfertility
  • supporting assisted conception (e.g. ovary stimulating drugs, IUI, IUD, IVF and ICSI)
  • a preconceptual care programme

    Reflexology can assist with conception by helping to reduce toxin levels, improve hormone and reproductive function, reduce stress and by generally balancing all bodily systems to create optimum conditions for conception. Ideally both the man and the woman should be treated although this is not essential.

    Reflexology can form an integral part of a preconception care programme, along with exercise, a healthy diet and good nutrition, ensuring both parents are at their optimum health to conceive. Ideally a preconception programme and reflexology should commence four months prior to a planned conception.

    The effect of stress on subfertility has become a widely recognised issue; reflexology can be especially useful in these situations as it is incredibly relaxing and stress reducing.

    The treatment I give involves a holistic approach, working all areas of the body to encourage and promote balance, with an emphasis on relaxation and stress reduction. The endocrine and reproductive systems receive additional attention to help balance and promote their functioning. Further emphasis is given to the pelvic and lumbar-sacral spine to reduce congestion and to any areas specific to the client. I also incorporate some Ayurvedic and Acupressure techniques into my treatments. The amount of focus on particular reflexes will be determinded by where you are in your menstrual cycle. My treatments also include discussions involving how to identify your most fertile time in your cycle and other advice to maximise your chance of conception.

    There are other complementary therapies that are also effective in helping couples concieve, however, the majority of my clients claim that reflexology is the most enjoyable of all the therapies they try!!!
