Reproductive Reflexology is for women at any stage in their fertility planning, whether they are enhancing their general health before trying for a baby, experiencing problems with conception or require help and guidance during pregnancy. I also offer treatments for couples undergoing assisted fertility treatments such as IUI and IVF/ICSI.
Here are some interesting facts about fertility:
Stress is anything which has an impact on your body; it can be physical or emotional in origin. It is a very significant factor with fertility, its causes are limitless and the impact on the body very widespread. When you're suffering from chronic (on going) stress, the body increases the production of stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol and at the same time slows the production of reproductive hormones, making it difficult to conceive.
Reflexology can help to combat how stress affects your body by bringing it back to its natural state of homeostasis. Your body then has the strength and focus to do what it does naturally.
Every client is an individual and this is taken into consideration when designing a treatment plan to meet your needs.
At your first consultation I will take a detailed medical history, including information on any mainstream fertility treatment being undertaken, medication, details of your diet and life-style. I will use this information to design a treatment plan.
As a Reflexologist and Nutritional Therapist I offer clients a course of Reproductive Reflexology treatments, with dietary changes and appropriate supplements.
I use temperature charting to find out more information about your menstrual cycle and ask clients to start recording this before the first consultation.
