Reflexology for Infertility

This particular treatment is designed for women who have difficulties in conceiving for physical reasons, because of stress, and many more. It helps the body to regulate its functions, balances the hormones, and unblocks the back and pelvis region. It is based on a circle of treatments working around the ovulation and cycle.

Maternity Reflexology can help in case of:

  • PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome)
  • Endometriosis
  • Irregular Cycles
  • Stress related reasons
  • During IVF treatment
  • Blocked Fallopian Tubes
  • SPD (Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction)

Pregnancy

During your pregnancy, your body will go through significant changes; these changes will affect the emotional, hormonal and physiological balance of your body. Reflexology can help to alleviate or prevent discomfort arising from this imbalance and restore the body’s equilibrium.

Research has shown that regular reflexology treatments during pregnancy can shorten the duration of labour, with many women requiring less pain-relief.

Reflexology can help with:

  • General relaxation
  • Relief of stress and anxiety
  • Increase energy levels
  • Ease physiological discomforts
  • Reduce heartburn
  • Relieve backache, nausea and vomiting
  • High blood pressure
  • Oedema (swelling, mainly of feet and ankles)
  • Ligament and groin pain
  • Symphysis pubis dysfunction
  • Sciatica
  • Constipation
  • Cystitis
