Reproductive Reflexology supports your reproductive health. I am fully trained in fertility reflexology with the Association of Reproductive Reflexologists, to use specific and prescriptive treatment protocols, which are used to support YOU through all phases of your conception journey, together with an understanding of the emotional stresses and strains that you might be experiencing.
It’s important to realise that seeing both partners for an initial discussion about your situation can have a significant impact in the way your treatment pathway is designed, and on success rates – the male factor is commonly overlooked during fertility investigations.
The aim of reproductive reflexology is to educate and support you so that you learn:
*how your monthly cycle works *about sperm health *treatments specifically for any female and male conditions *discover what dietary and lifestyle changes might make positive changes to your fertility *how to promote your chances of pregnancy.
Reproductive reflexology helps improve the symptoms of conditions such as PCOS, PMS, endometriosis, fibroids etc., and supports male factor issues like varicoceles, sperm quality issues and more.
These reflexology techniques are used to support you through assisted conception with specific treatment protocols, working alongside medicated cycles e.g. Metformin, Clomid, and with IUI, IVF and ICSI treatments (both fresh or frozen FET cycles). These can also be used to support individuals and couples using surrogacy or donors in IVF cycles.
I experienced unexplained infertility myself, which is what led me to train so that I could work with people, supporting their reproductive health.
Reflexology is a gentle touch therapy, working on reflexes and nerves found in your feet, face or hands, which help the systems and organs of your body to achieve balance.
Reflexologists work holistically with their clients to achieve better health and wellbeing. We help remind your body what it needs to do, in order to work as best as it can and give you the space and time within treatments for that to start. Often this means you will be able to relax, and shift some of the stresses affecting you, either physically or emotionally.
Reflexology is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you as a whole person. You’re not just a symptom or a presenting issue – you are a complex being. Reflexologists like to consider the whole of your physical, emotional and social needs, all of which can affect your wellbeing, when they are working with you. *Reflexologists do not diagnose, if you have a health condition, please speak to your doctor.
I give most treatments to the feet or faces of my clients (during normal times!) as I have found these to be easier to work with, and most effective. The theory is that reflexology helps the body to restore its balance naturally.
Reflexology is relaxing to receive, you just have to take off your socks and lie down. It does not tickle. I don’t mind what your feet look like, I treat them gently and respectfully. If we’re working at home via online sessions, we work reflexology points on the hands instead – much easier than trying to reach your own toes!
After reflexology, you may notice that you feel more relaxed, that you sleep better and that you feel more balanced overall.
Reflexology is a powerful way to resolve or reduce the impact of many health issues, and it’s a fantastic way for people to feel calmer, sleep better and feel less stressed.
Gentle Release Therapy
Gentle Release Therapy is a wonderful, gentle and powerful way to release tension and stress – that you may not realise you’re holding.
This treatment draws on the basics of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) combined with acupressure and energy techniques working with cranial, lymphatic and endocrine sequences, allowing your body to release whatever it needs within a session.
Gentle Release Therapy uses an extremely light touch to release blocked energy and help get energy flowing more freely once again.
After treatments clients often feel lighter in both the head and abdomen and will very often be so relaxed they go and take a nap, or be so energised they get loads of work done that they have been putting off for ages!
The advertising standards agency is very rigid in what we can say about the effects of complementary therapies, however we can say that that Gentle Release helps with relaxation, and helping relaxation helps stress. How many health problems are made worse by stress?
As a Gentle Release Practitioner I ease the process of getting your own body flowing back into balance, giving time and space for this to happen.
The most interesting aspect of this therapy is that you can receive it at home, during a virtual session, meaning that you can completely relax after a treatment, no worries about driving home whilst feeling sleepy!
Workplace Wellbeing is a great way to support your employee health. But why hold reflexology sessions for employee wellbeing?
Stress can hold employees back from being fully productive and focused at work. Too much stress can affect our wellbeing, workplace relationships and lead to sick days. COVID-19 has bought unprecedented change, and a consequent increase in stress for everyone.
Workplace stress is a big concern for employers in the UK and worldwide. In 2015/16 stress accounted for 448,000 cases of stress related illness, which resulted in 37% of all work related ill health cases and 45% of all working days lost due to ill health being answerable to stress. 42% have considered resigning due to workplace stress.
Reflexology is a relaxing therapy to receive, requires minimal disruption for employees and can improve health, wellbeing and employee satisfaction.
Staff wellbeing days, regular in-house clinics and workshops are all available as employee support – contact me for more information or to book a taster day.
