Reflexology can play an important part in supporting both natural and assisted conceptions. Fertility Reflexology is extremely gentle and focused, involving a series of treatments often weekly for a month or two. It is a well known fact that stress and worry can start to disrupt hormonal functions within the body. For some, that stress can be caused by long working hours, or a hectic lifestyle. But, for others, the stress can be caused by the all consuming worry of things not quite going to plan.

Reflexology can have a key role in supporting IVF treatments and couples through their fertility journey.

Maternity Reflexology supports mothers through hormonal and physical changes of pregnancy helping give relief from nausea and fatigue.



This is also an excellent way to prepare for labour, particularly if due date has passed with recent studies strongly suggesting that reflexology reduces pain and labour times. These studies have shown that regular reflexology thoughout pregnancy significantly reduced both the time in the first stage of labour and pain levels throughout*; improved the quality of sleep following childbirth**.

“Can you believe ... Saturday early hours I went into labour after your amazing treatment Friday. It was amazing how it happened so quickly so can’t thank you enough” Claire
