Here is a little information on how Reflexology can benefit women when trying to conceive, during pregnancy and after birth.
Fertility & Pre-Conception Reflexology
Reflexology has had many successes in treating couples with fertility issues, The Association of Reflexologists state that “… on average about 50% of clients seeking help through reflexology for infertility, find themselves pregnant within 6 months of commencing treatment.” (www.aor.org.uk). Reflexology is effective in assisting with different fertility issues, and can help with:
- Natural conception
- Treating conditions that impact fertility (e.g. PCOS, endometriosis or fibroids)
- Treating diagnosed subfertility
- Supporting assisted conception (e.g. ovary stimulating drugs, IUI, IUD, IVF and ICSI)
- It can assist with conception by helping to reduce toxin levels, improve hormone and reproductive function, reduce stress and by generally balancing all bodily systems to create optimum conditions for conception.
Reflexology can form an integral part of a preconception care programme, along with exercise, a healthy diet and good nutrition, ensuring both parents are at their optimum health to conceive. Ideally a preconception programme and reflexology should commence four months prior to a planned conception.
The treatment I offer involves a holistic approach, working all areas of the body to encourage and promote balance, with an emphasis on relaxation and stress reduction. The endocrine and reproductive systems receive additional attention to help balance and promote their functioning. The techniques which I use have achieved great results and have helped many women with ovulation, regaining regular periods, easing menstrual symptoms, help with PCOS, endometriosis, fibroids, and early menopause and to achieve a viable pregnancy.

Following the birth of your baby, your body begins a new period of adjustment. Reflexology can be very beneficial for balancing the hormones which have been working so hard. It can help lift moods and boost the immune system. It can also assist with breast milk production and regulating sleep patterns.Your position can be adapted depending on your needs and baby can be with you during treatment. Techniques used can be varied depending on the kind of birth you experienced.Reflexology can be effective in assisting the body through recovery and can be beneficial for:
- Nipple tenderness
- Aching joinst and muscles
- After pains
- Postnatal depression
Of course there are no guarantees, as with any other medical intervention or therapy, but case studies have shown reflexology to be effective in helping the onset of labour and even to reduce time taken in labour.
