Reflexology, rooted in the belief that specific points on the feet correspond to various parts of the body, offers a holistic approach to wellness by applying gentle pressure to these points. This ancient practice not only relaxes the mind, body, and soul but also provides relief from tension, stress, and anxiety while promoting improved mood and general well-being. Among its numerous benefits are increased blood circulation, enhanced immune system, restful sleep, and detoxification.

Reproductive Reflexology, a specialised branch of reflexology, focuses on fertility health for both men and women. Employing specific and prescriptive treatment protocols, it aims to regulate menstrual cycles, improve sperm production and functionality, and address underlying reproductive conditions. Whether preparing to start a family naturally or with medical assistance, individuals may find support in reproductive reflexology. From aiding conception to relieving pain and symptoms associated with reproductive conditions, this approach offers hope and assistance to many.

This post delves deeper into the principles and practices of Reproductive Reflexology, detailing its potential benefits, ideal candidates, and success stories.

What is Reflexology?

My Journey to Reproductive Reflexology (or Reproflexology™)

Having had my eldest children at the ages of 19 and 22, I had a deep longing to experience pregnancy again. At 35 I felt that there were parts of a pregnancy journey that I wanted to experience differently.  Having an underactive thyroid, being that much older and having been on contraception for many years, I was concerned that I wouldn’t conceive and also for the health and development of my future baby.  I was looking for a natural way to enhance my fertility when I discovered Reproductive Reflexology, which I went on to qualify in.  I was using the specific protocols on myself when I conceived and have since supported many women with this approach.

I am a member of the Association of Reproductive Reflexologists (MARR). Members of the ARR are specially trained, using structured and prescriptive treatment protocols to support couples and individuals through all phases of their assisted conception program and also a natural approach to conception.

What is Reproductive Reflexology?

  • It uses specific & prescriptive treatment protocols to address fertility health for both men and women
  • It aims to regulate menstrual cycles and ensure that each stage is functioning at its best
  • It aims to improve sperm production and functionality
  • It aims to assist any underlying conditions – male or female
  • It uses structured and prescriptive treatment protocols supporting all forms of assisted conception
  • It is one of the most effective forms of integrated medicine using results from medical testing to measure improvements

Who may benefit from Reproductive Reflexology?

If you are preparing to start or add to your family reproductive reflexology treatment may help you to conceive naturally or with medical assistance.

Successful client case studies include:

  • Would-be mums who want to be fully prepared to start their family
  • Couples and individuals undergoing conventional fertility treatment to aid conception, e.g. IVF, IUI, ICSI
  • Women and men seeking complementary therapy to help relieve the pain and symptoms of reproductive conditions
  • Couples who have already tried more conventional methods to help them conceive or to relieve ongoing pain and symptoms
  • Women seeking help and guidance during pregnancy
  • Can also be used to support individuals and couples using surrogacy or donor IVF cycles.

Common presenting health conditions in women:

– Poor ovarian reserves
– Endometriosis
– Recurrent miscarriage
– Irregular menstrual cycle
– Fibroids
– Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Treatment may also help men diagnosed with:

– Low sperm production
– Low sperm motility
– Erectile dysfunction

Reproductive Reflexology can be effective in supporting a woman’s body following pregnancy and childbirth.  The treatment may support the body to balance hormones and find its natural rhythm again.  Reflexology in general is effective in lowering stress levels and promoting sleep, both of which are extremely important following childbirth and into motherhood.  Each woman’s labour and delivery experience are unique to them and supporting the body to heal and recover is essential.  Some women experience challenging or traumatic births resulting in physical discomfort as well as emotional trauma.  The service that I offer supports the whole journey, on all levels, allowing a woman to work with her body to rebuild health, trust and confidence going forward.
