Fertility Reflexology at Naturally Heaven Therapy Salon in Benton, Newcastle
We have been treating couples facing fertility problems with reproductive fertility reflexology and have seen how natural reflexology treatment enhances well being and, with the right lifestyle choices, may help improve the chances of a happy outcome whether it be natural, IVF or ICSI using natural infertility treatments.

Reflexology treatments to help with fertility near me
Reflexology is a gentle, yet extremely effective therapy practised on the feet. It is non-invasive and totally natural. It is wonderful for Fertility, Pregnancy, Miscarriage, Menopause and all things hormonal.
Stress & Infertility Reflexology Treatment
The term infertility is used when conception has not occurred after 12 months of trying for a baby. You may have had tests which show that there is nothing wrong with either you or your partner and have been diagnosed with “unexplained infertility”. You may even have a child already but are finding it much more difficult to fall pregnant this time around. Perhaps you have a known medical condition such as PCOS, or a blocked fallopian tube or scar tissue from Pelvic Inflammatory Disease which may be affecting your chances of conception.
Many different factors affect the ability to conceive, but this is more likely to happen if both you and your partner are in good health. Age does have a bearing on fertility but there are many other factors which could be contributing to the problem.
The stresses and strains of modern life can have a significant impact on health and therefore on fertility too.
You may recognise the following patterns of behaviour in yourself or your partner:
- high levels of work-related stress
- regular high alcohol intake
- “binge” drinking to “let your hair down” or forget about your problem
- erratic eating patterns
- poor diet and/or ‘convenience’ foods
- being over-weight
- being under-weight
- excessive working hours
- work-related travel (especially long-haul)
- too much or not enough exercise
The anxiety over fertility issues can also add significantly to the stress you are under and you may have become trapped in a cycle of expectation and disappointment every month. Many couples have told me that they feel isolated and unable to talk about their problem and feel particularly upset when friends or work colleagues are pregnant or have recently had babies. There could, however, be steps you can take that may help improve your chances. I believe that regular reflexology treatment sessions and sensible lifestyle choices have played a big part in the positive outcomes I have seen.
Reflexology for Endometrosis
Reflexology is undeniably effective in treating endometriosis. This touch therapy does not just focus on eliminating the individual symptoms of the condition. Reflexology is actually beneficial in restoring balance in the central nervous system of the body which improves the functions of the organs.
Getting pregnant with endometriosis is still possible.
Hormonal Imbalance Can Cause Infertility
Conditions caused by hormone imbalance may make trying for a baby even more difficult:
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)- for information and support click here
- Get pregnant with pcos is still possible
- Endometriosis- for information and support click here
- Irregular menstrual cycle
- Amenorrhoea (sometimes caused by long-term contraceptive pill use)
Fertility Reflexology seems to have a very positive effect on balancing hormone levels and feedback from those attending for regular treatment sessions has shown:
- regulation of the menstrual cycle
- regular ovulation
- a return of the menstrual cycle (for those with amenorrhoea)
- less bloating, irritability and other PMS symptoms
- less discomfort for those with dysmenorrhoea (a symptom of Endometriosis)
- Easing endometriosis pain
- a more condensed menstrual flow
How Fertility Reflexology Could Help You Get Pregnant!
Reflexology works in a subtle way on a physical and emotional level and is especially beneficial for those experiencing fertility issues. Perhaps you are feeling anxious and on edge a lot of the time and feel unable to think about anything else but having a baby. The calming and soothing effects of a reflexology treatment will help relieve this stress and tension and could be a crucial first step in “letting go”. I believe you need to allow time to clear emotional blockages and address any lifestyle issues which could also be adding to the problem. Reflexology treatments may also help by
- enhancing the body’s own natural healing abilities
- encouraging all body systems to function efficiently
- assisting the elimination of toxins from the body
Please note that it is important that all aspects of your lifestyle are explored at your initial appointment and plenty of time is allowed to talk this through so that a treatment plan can be devised
