FERTILITY REFLEXOLOGY HEREFORD
Having a child of your own is one of the most special experiences a couple can have.
However, increasingly women are finding it difficult to conceive with as many as one in three couples experiencing fertility and reproductive health difficulties. Finding support to fall pregnant can be stressful and expensive with private medicine only available to those who can afford it. Complementary therapy such as reflexology can provide more affordable help and support.
I offer natural fertility treatment to couples (which includes working with couples undergoing assisted fertility treatment such as IUI and IVF/ICSI).
I have undergone extensive training with Barbara Scott, founder of Seren Natural Fertility and chair of The Association of Reproductive Reflexologists. Barbara has been working successfully in fertility treatment for over seventeen years and has supported numerous couples to fall pregnant.
Fertility reflexology can work in a number of ways to enhance fertility (male and female) including to:
Help tackle any medical conditions that may be present
Support hormonal balance and regulate the menstrual cycle
To relieve any associated anxiety and stress which can have a negative effect on the ability to conceive
Support assisted fertility treatments such as IUI and IVF/ICSI by working with the body to support the treatment
Help to put your body in prime condition to receive and fertilise your eggs
I work with women and men at various stages 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 - for which I offer specialist Maternity Reflexology.
Where clients are undergoing fertility treatment with conventional medical practitioners, I am able to work alongside their treatment to support their body's response to the treatment in order to boost the chances of success using their body’s own mechanisms.
Every client/couple I work with are treated as individuals and receive a tailored treatment plan. All treatment plans start with a thorough pre-conceptual review (ideally with both partners) to establish how best to support my clients specific fertility needs.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR TREATMENT
In advance of your first treatment I will complete a thorough pre-conceptual review with you. During this review I will also provide health, lifestyle and additional fertility guidance as relevant. This will allow me to develop a tailored treatment plan and ensure we are working together to support your journey. I also take a full medical history to ensure it’s safe and appropriate to carry out treatments.
Treatments usually last for 60 minutes which includes a review and tailored treatment.
All you will need to do is remove your socks and shoes and relax in a reclining reflexology chair that has been ergonomically designed to support your back.
I will start by relaxing your feet before applying specific pressure techniques and fertility protocols to certain reflex areas on the base of your feet.
Reflexology is a relaxing and calming experience, however there may be areas that are more sensitive. This is an indication of where there may be an imbalance. Don’t let ticklish feet put you off, the pressure applied is firm enough to avoid this.
