Fertility Reflexology has been used for centuries to benefit health and wellbeing and now there is ancient evidence that it has been used to aid fertility and conception and it still is to this day.
There comes a time in our life when we start to reflect on having a family and what it means to us to become a mother, a father, and parent. However, that stage which society and culture have us believing is a natural rite of passage is not necessarily a straightforward path, made especially difficult when the reality dawns that falling pregnant is not always that easy.
For whatever reason unique to the individual couple the anxiety, worry, and stress of that desire to become pregnant can bring strain to relationships and even isolation from friends while the process of getting pregnant takes center stage. Reflexology is widely used for many treatments.
Fertility Reflexology assists in re-balancing the mind/body connection enabling the recipient to regain homeostasis.

How does fertility reflexology work
Fertility Reflexology is a massage technique that is applied by a reflexologist to specific acupressure points on the feet. The points on the feet correspond to a specific organ of the body. Applying pressure to these points on the feet stimulates movement or a release of energy/prana/chi to the corresponding organ. With time, a connection to your centre and a deep therapeutic relaxation ensues. A treatment always provides peace and the space necessary for healing, allowing us to reconnect with our bodies within.
Extensive research has been conducted into the fight and flight system in the body, where high levels of the hormones cortisol and adrenaline are released during times of high stress. In contrast, research into the sense of calm and contentedness we feel as a result of the release of oxytocin and endorphins during a reflexology, massage or acupuncture session is limited.
Reflexology for Reproductive Health Problems
Polycystic ovaries, cervical problems, adhesion’s (more commonly known as scar tissue), pelvic inflammatory disease, premenstrual syndrome, hormonal imbalances, blocked or damaged fallopian tubes, endometriosis, and menstrual problems have all shown improvement from reflexology Within a few sessions, improved health and well-being surface. In order to address fertility health, a reflexology therapist will work through the reflexology points specific to the client’s area(s) of health concern, such as the:
- lymphatic system
- immune system
- circulatory system
- neurological system (stress, anxiety, depression)
- endocrine system (hormone balance)
- liver (toxin release, hormone balance)
- kidneys (libido, fertility issues)
Fertility Reflexology works best when the client also ensures healthy lifestyle habits are in place. These include but are not limited to diet, exercise, relaxation, work/life balance. No two reflexology treatments are the same for each session because the chosen points address the needs of the client on that particular day. Tailored treatment each session helps to ensure the greater outcome.
Aside from releasing oxytocin and the endorphins responsible for intense relaxation, reflexology provides a space away from the speed of modern day life and a chance to offload emotionally, physically and mentally.
The treatment room provides an environment which absorbs the strain and tension of control which trying to get pregnant often brings. Acceptance and relaxation.
