Reflexology and endometriosis

Reproflexology and endometriosis – some numbers for you.

Reflexology and endometriosis:
Pregnancy – 65%
Live birth rate – 55%

Success rates from a data collection study of 180 cases, published in Reflexology for Fertility.

‘It is important to be aware that these results can ONLY be attributed to using these particular reproflexology protocols and no other form of reflexology’

Barbara Scott, ‘Reflexology for Fertility, a practitioners’ guide to natural and assisted conception’ (Watkins, 2016)

Endometriosis is a condition in which uterine tissues grow outside the uterus – it can develop around all your reproductive organs, around the bowel, bladder and vagina. Up to 25% of women in the UK who are ‘sub-fertile’ are thought to have endometriosis, and approximately 5-10% of all women of reproductive age.

Symptoms: pain during sex, heavy, painful or irregular periods, bleeding between periods, chronic pelvic pain, abdominal pain, bloating, fatigue.

Reproflexology techniques are designed to help you – by learning how your bodies work, using specific routines to support a regular monthly cycle, as well as any known conditions that may affect your wellbeing; by treating male partners as well to help optimum sperm health and using other tools and advice.

Fertility

Fertility. This is my big focus for 2019. Fertility has impacted not only my life, but so many friends too. 

Trying for a baby has to be one of the most stressful and heart-wrenchingly difficult things to do, especially if you’ve been told you have unexplained infertility, or if you don’t actually know why you’re not getting pregnant. 

I want to give my clients the best chance to improve their fertility and enhance the chances of successful conception, using reflexology as a holistic therapy for women and their partners.

This year, I am deepening my knowledge of reflexology, training with¬†Barbara Scott¬†– an amazing reflexologist who has developed specific fertility protocols, in conjunction with research which shows the effectiveness of this work. My training starts next week, and I can’t wait! I’ve added a new page of resources for you about periods, conception and more here.

Reproductive Reflexology

I am pleased to announce that I am offering reproductive reflexology treatments, for couples aiming to improve their fertility naturally. This year I am working towards formal certification by the Association of Reproductive Reflexologists, and I am currently looking for case studies, so if you would like to participate in my research, then I would love to hear from you!

My own experience of ‘unexplained infertility’ led me (via a winding route) to my present career as a reflexologist (and happily, to two children conceived naturally).

In my clinic I have met an increasing number of people who are having difficulties with conceiving, or presenting with fertility problems. I aim to assist couples who are trying to conceive and achieve their goal of having their own children, whether that be naturally or by assisted conception.

It can be stressful and expensive to get help to get pregnant, with many NHS fertility clinics now restricting or not providing treatments due to funding cuts. Private treatment can be prohibitively expensive, and again, can be limited in certain areas. Complementary therapies such as reflexology can offer help and support, at a fraction of the cost, and work to support your body’s systems. Treatments work with any conventional medicine/therapy that you may be undergoing, or as stand-alone therapy.

I am happy to treat individuals and couples (however they are structured) at any stage of their fertility journey, either to enhance your general wellbeing before trying for a baby, if you are experiencing problems with conception, and if you need guidance and help throughout a pregnancy.

I look at each case individual, and treatments will vary from person to person, depending on their circumstances. If you would like to discuss fertility/conception reflexology with me, then please get in touch. I’ve just added a page of resources and links that you might like to visit – here.
