The likelihood of conception increases when both partners are in optimal health. Consequently, regular reflexology treatments may increase the likelihood of achieving success. Anxiety over fertility influences your ability to conceive. The longer the situation continues, the more desperate couples become and the greater their stress levels.
Reflexology may help normalise hormones and restore a person to balance (homeostasis). By being more relaxed, couples that receive reflexology whilst having IVF treatment may find it easier to conceive.
Can Reflexology Improve Fertility?
Many midwives recommend reflexology to pregnant women because of the many changes the body undergoes at this time. Reflexology during pregnancy helps women feel pampered and more relaxed. Regular treatments may also help with hormone balance, increase energy levels and promote general well-being.
Reflexology Maternity Treatment with Pat Compton
Pat Compton is qualified to practice reflexology and has attended a postgraduate workshop Fertility and Maternity Reflexology with David Wayte from the Jubilee College of Reflexology.
In the initial consultation a detailed medical questionnaire will be completed, along with lifestyle advice and an individually-tailored plan.
You will then relax on a massage chair and receive a gentle foot massage followed by firm thumb and finger pressure over the various reflex points. When the treatment is finished I will discuss the findings and answer any further questions.
Receiving reflexology during pregnancy may help with common problems such as:
- Joint pains
- Morning sickness
- Oedema (water retention)
- Digestive problems
- Sleep problems
- Stress and anxiety
- Reduced energy levels
