Reproductive Reflexology

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

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!

As a newly-trained practitioner of Gentle Release Therapy, I am offering some substantially discounted treatments for a limited time only to build up my experience – please contact me for more information on session availability and are happy to provide feedback on your experience of the treatment.

At present, all services are being offered online.

Consultations, assessment and self-care treatments shaped for your needs are available via video/online appointments, meaning you can work with me from anywhere that you have an internet connection. Please see the links below for consultation forms, which you can complete before making an enquiry.

*Any clients coming to the clinic must also complete a COVID risk assesment before each treatment (in person) which is available here.

What happens when I come for a treatment with you?

First, we’ll go through your consultation form. This helps me to find out what your needs and expectations are, and to decide if any referral from a GP or other healthcare provider might be required.  This information is confidential. If you are coming to see me for fertility consultations, the process is more in depth, to get a full picture of you and your partner’s journey so far, including reviewing test results, previous procedures etc. so these appointments will take longer. Both partners (if applicable) should complete consultation forms.

When we have discussed what you are hoping to achieve through treatment – such as stress reduction, help with sleep patterns, or fertility needs – we will discuss a treatment plan. This will be a guide to which treatments I recommend you will need to get to your goal and would be most beneficial for you.

Reflexology is a very easy therapy to receive; for feet, you will only need to take off socks and shoes. Gentle Release Therapy is carried out fully clothed. If we are working virtually, then you will need a quiet and private space with good internet.

Treatments can change from sessions to session, depending on how you and your body are on the day. Afterwards, you should rest for a few minutes, and we can discuss any after care advice. I always suggest having a drink of water handy once you have received a treatment – many clients become thirsty during or after a session.

All complementary therapies are more effective over time, and because of this, I recommend that clients book a package so that you can get the most benefits, these can be scheduled to fit in with your specific needs.

How will I feel during or after a treatment?

You may feel relaxed during a treatment, and many people go to sleep. If you stay awake, you may feel sensations in your body. It’s great if you let me know if you feel anything – such as tingling, colours, or if a particular movement just feels really nice – as this may show the response of your body to the treatment, and helps me to focus on what your body needs. You may find that your body continues to respond for a few days after a session – this is completely normal!

After one or two sessions you may respond in a very noticeable way. Most people note a sense of well-being and relaxation. However, sometimes people can report feeling very tired, have cold-type symptoms or feel very emotional – this usually passes quickly and is considered a normal part of the healing process.
