Reflexology for Fertility

Reflexology is one of the six most popular complementary therapies in the UK and regular treatments may help ease both emotional and physical stresses.

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 may help with fertility issues, hormonal imbalances, muscular problems, stress related and pregnancy-related issues.

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
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Backache
  • Reduced energy levels

Below are some useful links relating to reflexology for fertility:


“I had never tried reflexology before, but decided to give it a go when my husband and I were about to undergo IVF. I had read that reflexology could assist with fertility, and in particular help to support your body through the IVF cycle. If nothing else, I thought it would be a good opportunity to relax during an otherwise stressful process.

I found Pat through Google. She proved to be an invaluable find! Pat’s treatments are extremely relaxing and helped me to switch off during a stressful period in my life and helped to prepare my body for IVF and conception. We were lucky enough to have a healthy baby from our first IVF cycle and I’m sure Pat’s magic helped significantly. I continue to visit Pat to assist with general well being and have recommended her to many of my friends.”
