Reflexology for Preconceptual Care
When a couple are planning a baby it is sensible for BOTH of them to first get in good shape, not only physically but also mentally and spiritually. Looking at you lifestyle, perhaps changing your diet and exercise can all contribute to increasing the likelihood of a successful conception. A period of 6 months before planned conception is considered ideal to maximise your health and wellbeing. Reflexology is a natural therapy using the subtle energies of the feet to create balance and harmony thus helping us to attain and maintain a state of good health.
"I wanted to email you to say thank you. You have helped us again. Early days but a scan yesterday confirmed I am 6 weeks and 5 days pregnant. All is well so far!”
Sub-fertility can occur in both men and women and is an in-between state when they are neither infertile nor can they yet conceive. There are many reasons for sub-fertility including stress, life style, and physical state of health. There may be no obvious reason at all. Sub-fertility may even occur when you already have a child (secondary infertility). Patterns of behaviour can have a big impact on our health and on our fertility. These include:
The pressure to conceive is immense and prolonged stress can affect the Endocrine (hormonal) function - I carry out an Endocrine Balance as a matter of course.
Hormonal factors affecting fertility include:
Prior to your first appointment you will be asked to complete a detailed Pre-Conceptual Questionnaire. I will need copies of any medical reports, test results, scans etc.
You and your partner will come for a 2 hour consultation (cost £100 ). During this time we will discuss all aspects of your lives - lifestyle, stress levels, occupation, diet, exercise etc. You will both experience some reflexology so I can make an assessment and treatment plan.
The female client will then have a 35 minute treatment once a week for 4 weeks so that through reflexology I can note the reflexes at each week of the cycle. She will also keep a temperature and mucus chart for three months. If the male partner has known issues which may be affecting their ability to conceive, he too will benefit from regular reflexology. After the 4 week intensive treatment programme we will review progress and between us decide whether to repeat the weekly treatments or progress to treatments only on weeks 2 and 3. During this time you will have had your hair samples analysed and as soon as possible start taking any supplements recommended to promote your chances of conceiving.
At all times I will support, explain and encourage ….and be honest with you both! Success comes from us working together as a team.
This may seem a huge commitment financially and time wise, but I sincerely believe that this is the best method to create the conditions required to promote conception and a healthy baby. There are no guarantees of course but reflexology helps fill in the gaps that the NHS neither has the time nor the resources to deliver. And the best news is that reflexology is a completely natural and relaxing therapy.
"When I first contacted Sally We had been trying to conceive with no luck for some years and I was at breaking point thinking that we would never have a child.
