Reflexology for supporting your Fertility
Making the decision to start trying for a baby is an incredibly exciting time, it's a time when you may feel like you need to be taking care of your physical and emotional well being.
By choosing to use reflexology to support you at a time when you really want to feel at your best physically, emotionally and mentally, you may well find that you start to experience and feel these benefits:
- An improved sense of wellbeing
- Helping with relaxation, physical, emotional and mental
- Aiding sleep problems
- Helping to relieve tension both muscular and mental
- Improve your moods
- May help to balance your hormones whilst you are on your journey to concieve
- Helping to reduce your stress and anxiety levels
We will also look at the emotional side to your conception journey as this is really important and may be affecting you're wellbeing.
However for some this can be come a time of worry, anxiety and frustration if conceiving your baby doesn't happen a quickly as you hoped it would or if you have lost babies through miscarriage or still birth in previous pregnancies. You may find that you feel like you are losing your identity and enthusiasm for any thing that is not related to your fertility journey. Relationships may become strained and you may feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders if you decided to keep this journey private.
Reflexology can support you if you are on a natural journey to conceive or if you are going through assisted forms of conception such as clomid, IVF , and IUI.

Reflexology is not a substitute for medical treatment/care however it can be safely used alongside medical treatments.
What happens during a treatment
When you arrive for your first fertility reflexology treatment it is really important for me to be able to understand why you have come along for your treatment. This can sometimes be very emotional, but please do not worry if you become upset, this is perfectly okay. Our emotional and physical well being are equally important, so we will do a medical and lifestyle consultation together. This will enable me to ensure that your treatment is unique to your individual needs.
As part of this consultation we will discuss which oils will bring you the most emotional and physical benefits during your treatment based on their therapeutic properties. We will then create you your Unique blend of essential oils.
You will then get the to be able to either sit or lie back and relax on a warm couch. We will be able to use lots of blankets and cushions to be able to make you as comfortable as you want to feel. The treatment time is yours to do what you want with, some client choose to chat, whilst others like to drift off to sleep or simply take some time out. The treatment will begin with your feet being cleaned. Then we will use organic balm to be able to work the reflexes on your feet.
At the end of your treatment you will be given some time to allow yourself to come round, and have a drink if you would like one. We can then also if you wish talk about some ideas that can help support you once you have left the treatment room.
