Reflexology aims to be a valuable part of any pre-conception programme to increase fertility by balancing all body systems, on both a physical and emotional level. Reflexology may help place both partners in a more optimum condition to concieve by;
- Relieving stress – any therapy which relieves stress and tension and promotes deep relaxation will enable organs and body systems to work more efficiently.
- Ridding the body of toxins.
- Improving hormonal and reproductive function – by working the endocrine system reflexology aims to balance hormones and regulate the menstrual cycle.
- Balancing all body systems and energy pathways – It only needs one area of the body to be out of balance to lead to disorders in other areas. Removing stagnant or blocked energy leads to a restoration of health and balance.
Recent research has indentified a clear link betweem stress and infertility. Scientists have found that those with high levels of the stress hormone cortisol stop ovulating and can’t fall pregnant. Those with hectic jobs were identified as most at risk.
Some of my most rewarding moments as a Reflexologist have been meeting babies born to clients who came to me having little or no hope of ever having a baby.
