What is infertility (or sub fertility)?
If its been 12 months or more and despite your best efforts, whether this be natural, IVF etc you’ve still not successfully conceived and you’re questioning your fertility (or infertility). This situation is classed as infertility or if you have already conceived once, sub fertility.
One major contributing factor of infertility (or sub fertility) is stress -
In this situation, many people find themselves unable to conceive and often wind up struggling to become pregnant and even undergoing IVF, clomid, insemination and so on.
What is reflexology based fertility treatment?
Firstly, there is no magic wand, but fertility reflexology aims to balance your body, in particular your hormones making it as easy as possible for your body to behave as it would naturally and effectively help you become pregnant.
Reflexology works in a similar way to acupuncture by clearing the channels that your body uses to connect. So for example, if your body uses a metaphorical road to pass the messages from one area to another and there is a landslide blocking the way; until that landslide has been removed the messages won’t pass down the road to their correct and final destination.
If we can remove the ‘landslide’ the your messages have more chance of getting to their end destination to you have more opportunity to become pregnant.

Menstrual cycle problems e.g. irregular and heavy periods
PMS (pre menstrual syndrome)

In short -
How long does it take to see results?
Everyone is different and the time to see results will vary according to how deep rooted your problems are. Most people will start to respond positively to Reflexology within 3 to 6 weekly appointments, meaning that this is when we start to work past the general imbalances and can start to address the more severe imbalances.
Reflexology appointments for infertility are a minimum of an hour and a half to ensure that you get a full treatment with the necessary level of fertility reinforcement for you to be able to see the best holistic results.
Can reflexology be used to support medical fertility procedures?
Yes, Reflexology supports medical fertility procedures positively as it prepares you physically and emotionally by ensuring your body is in the best possible condition to optimise the chance of a successful pregnancy.
I’ve been told we have ‘unexplained infertility’ can reflexology help this?
If medical tests have shown no reason for you being unable to conceive successfully
this is unexplained infertility. Reflexology can assist this by ensuring that both
you and your partners are in optimum condition by re-
I’ve already had a child and yet I’m being told we’re now infertile?
This is called secondary infertility and can be quite common due to our bodies reacting
to changing external stimuli. Reflexology may therefore be very effective for secondary
infertility as it re-
Is there a consultation process?
Yes. If you have a computer, we’ll send you a consultation form to complete before you come along for your reflexology treatment. This will allow you to go through your medical history and lifestyle as there may be contributory factors such as long working hours, erratic eating patterns and diet, little exercise which may affect your fertility.
When you arrive we’ll chat through your consultation form to fully understand everything and then we’ll develop your very own treatment plan tailored to your needs.
Where will I be treated?
Your reflexology treatment will be in a comfortable, calm treatment room with soft lighting and specialist relaxation music.
What will happen during the treatment?
During your reflexology therapy, you will be seated in a specialist chair. You will need to take off your shoes and socks/ stockings. Then during the treatment we will keep the foot that isn’t being worked on covered with soft towels to keep it warm whilst your other foot is being treated.
We will then begin assessing your feet visually before gently warming up your feet. Then it will be on to the actual treatment. You will receive treatment to your right foot first, and then your left.
The emphasis of the treatment content will depend on your individual needs as every reflexology is individually tailored. We will rework your particular areas of specialist need before finishing off with a warm down & if you have booked a longer treatment, a luxury foot and lower leg massage.
What do I do during a reflexology treatment?
Make yourself comfortable. If your therapist wants you to adjust your position, he or she will either move you or will ask you to move as necessary. Otherwise, change your position anytime to make yourself more comfortable. Many people close their eyes and relax completely during a session; others prefer to talk. It's up to you. This is your time, whatever feels natural to you is the best way to relax. Do not hesitate to ask questions at any time.
During reflexology your body releases toxins. This process can mean that your body temperature can change at any time, so please do say if you become cold. Likewise, if the pressure is too light or hard, then please feel free to say as everyone is different.
How will I feel after reflexology?
Most people feel really relaxed after reflexology, then most people will then feel rejuvenated and full of energy. You may experience some aches and pains for around 24 hours after your treatment as the body flushes the toxins that have been released. In order to speed this process along, drink lots of water after reflexology.
Why would I not be able to have a reflexology treatment?
There are a few illnesses which mean reflexology would not be the best holistic therapy for you. In this instance, we wouldn’t be able to treat you with reflexology, but there are plenty of other therapies that would be more suitable and we can help and advise you in making the best choice.
What conditions are not suitable for reflexology?
Contagious or notifiable diseases
Immediately before or after surgery
Under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Immediately after chemotherapy or radiation, unless recommended by your doctor
Please Note: Reflexology is a totally safe and complementary treatment (it does not replace medical treatment). If you are in any doubt at all, please consult with your GP prior to treatment. It is important to understand that Reflexology is not a miracle cure, but it is the best chance you can give your body to conceive naturally.
