I’ve been a Reflexologist for almost 10 years now and still I find that the treatment is considered the ‘poor relation’ to other therapies. Yet, this wonderful treatment, never ceases to amaze me in how it helps to counteract stress and anxiety, rebalance hormones, extend or reduce cycles, encourage conception, and even bring on labour!
A lovely client of mine came a few years ago having suffered an ectopic pregnancy resulting in the loss of one fallopian tube….. she had heard that Reflexology could be beneficial in encouraging the body to re-regulate, thus helping to conceive. After only a couple of treatments she was delighted to find herself pregnant! What a result.
Of course as a Therapist, you know that you can’t ‘claim’ the pregnancy, so you delight in the fact that your client feels Reflexology played a significant part. So much so that this lady returned again this year (even having moved further away from my clinic) for help with number 2, having suffered another miscarriage, and again with an unpredictable cycle.
Well, you guessed it, it took only another two treatments and the email pinged in – pregnant again!!… ‘we’ are delighted.
It is a wonderful result but is it just coincidence? Well my lady doesn’t think so and nor do I. Whilst it is true that you cannot predict how each individual client will respond to treatment, and I should add that not all clients do fall pregnant but cycles do improve and many hormonal imbalances are reduced or alleviated.
Many clients do experience very positive results in all manner of hormonal work, such as:
- Reduced discomfort and regularised cycle (endometriosis)
- Eczema rash clears
- Monthly periods recommence after long periods of absence,
- Hot flushes and night sweats are reduced
- Oedema and puffy ankles instantly reduce
- Labour is encouraged to start or to further progress
- Cycles regulate
- Ovulation occurs
What is different about Fertility Reflexology?, well firstly we like to treat the client more often than a ‘standard’ treatment, so as to closely monitor the cycle and the responses. We specifically work with the natural cycle (or IVF protocols), adapting the treatment to encourage hormonal rebalance and regulation, or adapting the treatment to encourage improvement in specific conditions, such as Endometriosis etc and we provide extensive information on how to monitor, chart, and understand your cycle so that you are well informed as to understanding how your reproductive body is behaving, what are possible underlying problems, when your most fertile time is and how to read your monthly symptoms.
If you would like to consider Fertility Reflexology as the next step in your fertility journey, please do get in touch.
