Experiencing fertility problems can cause a great deal of stress – unfortunately stress wreaks havoc on your hormonal system and monthly cycle. This in turn can result in fluctuating and irregular cycles, that can impact on fertility and so the cycle can feel never ending.

Reflexology for Men and Women
And, it’s not just for women! Fertility Reflexology has been created with the male cycle in mind too, seeking to improve internal health and wellbeing, and counteracting the negative effects that stress can cause on the quality and health of sperm.
A Reflexology treatment is extremely effective in calming the nervous system (amongst other benefits) allowing the body to regulate well, providing the opportunity for balance to be restored. It is therefore excellent at alleviating the effects of stress, anxiety and worry during this time.
What Does Reflexology Feel Like?
A classic Reflexology treatment feels like a foot massage.
The Reflexologist works in a sequence over the feet focusing on specific points, known as ‘reflexes’. These reflexes correspond to organs, systems and structures of the body. Working the reflexes stimulates blood and lymphatic flow to these areas and switches the body away from fight and flight (i.e our stressed state) into a calm state.
Fertility Reflexology has its roots in classic theory but focuses on the reproductive reflexes (ovaries, tubes, womb, testes etc). It aims to:
- Regulate the body’s natural rhythm
- Enhance the efficacy of your drug protocol and reduce any side effects
- Take into account known conditions such as PCOS, Endometriosis, cycle irregularities and poor quality sperm
- Encourage the body to regain hormonal balance
- Improve the quality and health of the cycle and the internal environment
- Treat the emotional and physical issues that arise from prolonged, unexplained infertility, and miscarriage
- Reduce the symptoms of stress, worry and anxiety
Cycle, Timing and PCOS to consider
Timing of the treatment usually depends on what we are addressing, whether any issues such as PCOS are present and how your cycle generally behaves. As a guide, expect to have treatment twice a cycle but this will be discussed during your initial consultation.
Helping you feel informed about cycle health, prepare you for IVF and support you through the trauma of miscarriage can give you back control of your fertility journey.
