Reflexology for Fertility
Reflexology can be used as a complementary tool to boost fertility in both men and women. The endocrine system plays a key role when trying to conceive. Factors like age, nutrition, weight, body fat (excess or absence) and stress amongst others can affect fertility.
Reflexology can help to restore balance and harmony in the whole body as well as providing support and relaxation during this often stressful period. The feet can be a mirror of the body and this concept helps reflexologists to locate areas, through a mixture of gentle and firm pressure in the areas that need extra care. In this case, focusing on those that correspond to reproductive organs and endocrine system.
It is recommended to have reflexology regularly for best effects. It is advised to prepare 3 months before starting IVF and IUI. Reflexology treatments can be partially covered by most private health insurance. These include: VHI, Glo Health, Aviva and Laya Health Care.
Many women find that pregnancy, in addition to their normal day-to-day activities, can put them under pressure. Pregnancy Reflexology is appropriate for relaxation and stress reduction during these sensitive times, and gives the mother a safe space to discuss any and all feelings surrounding the pregnancy.
It can help alleviate many of the common symptoms of pregnancy such as fatigue, nausea, insomnia, neck and back pains, mood swings, and bloating. It can also provide many benefits for both the mother and baby.
Reflexology is a great tool to aid in a stress-free pregnancy, to optimise health, and balance the body systems.
Like foot reflexology, the face has reflexes, which once stimulated help to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms.
