Infertility can be emotionally exhausting, but according to a growing number of people, the key to overcoming the problem for many couples could be far simpler than they think. Seeing a trained Fertility Reflexologist, making some nutritional and lifestyle changes and your outlook on life can all help towards conceiving a baby.
Reflexology is not a substitute for the help, advice and tests you will get at the hospital or in your fertility clinic, but working alongside your doctor it can give you the emotional support you need.
Women often come to see me before they try assisted conception, they may have been trying to conceive for a year or so and would like to see if natural therapies can help before they take fertility drugs. They are often stressed and stress is a major block when it comes to getting pregnant. I can help with advice about creating a healthier environment for a possible pregnancy to occur and with the help of Reflexology encourage the natural rhythms of the body.
Both women and men report that they feel more relaxed, sleep better after a treatment, and women's menstrual cycles become regular.
I also work with Couples undergoing IVF, ICSI and IUI. The reflexology protocol I use works with the drugs as you undergo each stage of your treatment. Reflexology at this time can also be a great support when you find you can be up and down emotionally.
