Information shared from the Association of Reproductive Reflexologists:
Reproductive Reflexology can be used as a stand-alone treatment to enhance natural fertility, or in conjunction with assisted conception such as Clomid, IUI, IVF and ICSI. It can also be used to support individuals and couples using donors in IVF cycles. Reflexology can help to reduce stress levels and improve wellbeing at this important time.
How does it work?
Uses specific and prescriptive treatment protocols to address fertility health for both men and women
Aims to regulate menstrual cycles and ensure that each stage is functioning at its best
Aims to improve sperm production and functionality
Aims to assist any underlying conditions – for men and women
Uses structured and prescriptive treatment protocols supporting all forms of assisted conception
Reproflexology can be one of the most effective forms of integrated medicine using results from medical testing to measure improvements.
Barbara Scott, Chair of the Association of Reproductive Reflexologists says ‘Trying to conceive, in itself, can be stressful and we know that this can impact upon your ability to get pregnant. Your Reproductive Reflexologist will support you emotionally and also use techniques to help manage your stress levels.’
In addition, a course of Reproflexology aims to balance hormones which may also help to reduce some of the symptoms of PCOS/endometriosis/PMS/fibroids, and issues experienced during the menopause.
