Therapies for Fertility to Menopause
Reproductive or Fertility 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.
Did you know that it takes three months for an egg or sperm to develop and mature? This is why I expect my clients to work with me for a minimum three months / 3 cycles to allow time for changes to be integrated. It also offers the best timescale to make improvements to lifestyle and nutrition, which have a significant impact on your body's ability to produce good quality egg and sperm - which of course can impact on development of embryos and the uterine/seminal environments.
Seeing both partners when discussing your situation can have a significant impact in the way your treatment pathway is designed, and on success rates – sadly I find that male factors are commonly overlooked during fertility investigations.
I am particularly interested in working with couples (including same sex) using donor egg or sperm or surrogates, using IVF routes to conception.
The aim of reproductive reflexology is to educate and support you so that you learn about:
How your monthly cycle works; Sperm health; Discover what dietary and lifestyle changes might make positive changes to your fertility; What to do to promote your chances of pregnancy.
Reproductive reflexology also helps improve the symptoms of menstrual health diseases such as PCOS, PMS, endometriosis, fibroids etc., and male factor issues like varicocele, sperm quality issues, and more.
I am trained to support your fertility using a unique combination of therapies, including Gentle Release therapy, Reflexology, Nutrition, Counselling, Aromatherapy and more. I work online and in person with my clients, so distance should not be a barrier.
If you are struggling with the types of issues which can interfere with conception, including miscarriage, PCOS, unexplained infertility, MRKH, secondary infertility male factors and even those who are preparing for IVF treaments, reproductive reflexology can support you.
Specialised reflexology techniques are used to support you through both natural and assisted conception with specific treatment protocols, working alongside medicated cycles for IUI, IVF, ICSI and donor treatments (fresh and frozen FET cycles).
I experienced unexplained infertility myself, which is what led me to work with people supporting their reproductive health, and I am passionate about providing a safe space for you during your journey, however it may turn out.

Reflexology for the Peri to Menopause phase
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. This can be especially valuable when you are experiencing peri-menopause.
Perimenopause is the time leading up to menopause, when the ovaries gradually stop producing eggs. This can happen as early as in your late 30s, but most women experience it in their 40s or 50s.
Some of the effects of the changes to your hormones and menstrual cycle include shorter or longer cycles, heavier or lighter bleeds, worsening PMS, hot flushes, insomnia, joint aches and pains, changes to skin, hair & nails, and so much more! There are in fact 48 symptoms of menopause, which I won't list here - but please ask if you would like more info on them.
The net effect of all these changes, some creeping up and others arriving all at once can be devastating to your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. It's a lot to deal with, and often we don't have someone to discuss these changes with.
I have been through perimenopause myself, being a woman in mid-life, and my own experiences led me to train specifically in how to support you through this time. I have in-depth knowledge of what can help you, and what to avoid.
Reflexology for peri-menopause can be carried out on your feet, or you can choose to enjoy the benefits of facial reflexology - which has the added benefits of helping out your skin as well as helping you to relax. You can even learn how to do it yourself, using specific face maps to work on perimenopause symptoms, by joining me for a workshop.
If you're struggling with what to do, and you need to experience some caring and nurturing support, get in touch with me today.
Gentle Release Therapy for Fertility to Menopause
Gentle Release Therapy is a wonderful, gentle and powerful way to release the tension and stress that you may not realise you've been holding on to.
This treatment draws on the basics of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) combined with acupressure and energy techniques, allowing your body to release whatever it needs within a session.
Gentle Release Therapy uses an extremely light touch to release blocks and allow your energy to flow freely around the body.
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 body flowing back into balance, giving time and space for this to happen.
You can receive Gentle Release Therapy treatments during a virtual session at home, meaning that you can completely relax and enjoy the benefits of Gentle Release with no worries about driving home afterwards.
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 bought unprecedented change to many businesses, and a consequent increase in stress for everyone.
Workplace stress is a big concern for employers in the UK and worldwide. In 2015/16 alone 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.
