Reproductive Reflexology, Fertility, IVF and Natural Conception
Reproflexology™ is a specific form of Reflexology that can be extremely effective in treating problematic cycles, helps to de-stress the body, calm the hormonal system and encourage the cycle to regularise. The techniques are adapted to treat each part of the natural cycle or to support an IVF Protocol which is why it differs from standard Reflexology. It also encourages the cycle to return, after miscarriage.
I have trained in Reproflexology™ with Barbara Scott, acknowledged as one of the UK’s leading experts in working with couples undergoing assisted fertility treatment, as well as taken additional Fertility Reflexology training with Mauricio Krushik. Fertility reflexology can be used as a stand-alone treatment to enhance your natural fertility or with fully medicated cycles of IUI, IVF, ICSI as well as with donor eggs.
Support for Fertility
Fertility Reflexology can assist couples who would like support with:
- Natural conception.
- Assisted conception – IUI,IVF & ICSI cycles.
- Menstrual cycle/hormonal imbalances
- Endometriosis, Fibroids, PCOS.
- Reduced PMS & PMT symptoms.
- Sperm quality and quantity.
- Stress related problems.
- General health and wellbeing.
Receiving regular Fertility Reflexology treatments is a great way to help you stay positive and calm, providing emotional support through each stage of your conception journey. Treatments help to relieve tension, stress, anxiety and balance all of the body systems ensuring the best possible start for a pregnancy.
Each client is a unique individual with their own personal history, so treatment plans are tailored to your individual needs based on the information you provide.
Aiding Natural Conception
If you are trying to get pregnant naturally it is recommended that you receive weekly treatments for up to 3 months in order to balance all of your body systems. Treatments encourage you to experience deep relaxation, which effectively leads to a reduction in stress hormones. With a reduction in stress and specific changes in lifestyle and diet it is possible to improve hormone levels and the quality of the eggs and sperm being produced.
Assisted Conception – IVF, IUI, Clomid
This means I understand the details of your assisted conception treatment and have also learnt specialist Reflexology techniques to ensure that I can fully support you through this very important time. Rather than balancing the body during these treatments we will be working to enhance the efficacy of the drugs that you will be taking.
Miscarriage and Hormonal Imbalances
Reflexology treatment helps to regulate hormones, regain balance over your menstrual cycle or to smooth transition into Menopause, reducing hormonal issues such as hot flashes, night sweats, disturbed sleep, mode swings. It can help t alleviate and balance both the physical and emotional systems.
By addressing lifestyle/exercise/diet and nutritional supplementation to support optimum health we can ensure your body is working at it’s optimum which is when conception is most likely to take place.
I also recommend that you complete charts at http://www.fertilityfriend.com so that we can track your cycle to give you the best chance of conception and to see how the Reflexology is supporting you.
A detailed consultation is taken at the start of the process, preferably with both partners but this is not essential. It will also include a short reflexology assessment treatment for both partners, or a full treatment if only one partner is attending. Handouts are given for dieting, menstrual charting plus a thermometer. A Preconception Questionnaire will be sent to you prior to your treatment and needs to be completed and brought along with any test results.
