Research - fertility

A study in Denmark enrolled 108 women who had been diagnosed as infertile for at least 2 years and had no previous children. 47 withdrew from the study, the remaining 61 were given reflexology treatments for 8 months, twice a week and in the second half of the study, two treatments prior to the women's ovulation. Nine of the women (15%) became pregnant after 6 months, and all of the other women who had menstrual or ovulation abnormalities, completely recovered from their symptoms.

Maternity Reflexology

        reduces labour time

Reflexology is very safe and of great support during pregnancy. It can help with most symptoms present during pregnancy, such as morning sickness, swelling in feet and ankles, improving sleep quality and aid digestion.

Treatments flow on to benefit the foetus as well, creating a sense of wellbeing.

Research has shown that receiving regular Reflexology during pregnancy and certainly during the last couple of months, helps to make labour easier and shorter, lasting approximately 6 hours.

Some of the following conditions may benefit from Reflexology during pregnancy

  • nausea
  • fatigue
  • backache
  • constipation
  • circulation
  • oedema
  • restless legs
  • symphysis pubis discomfort
  • anxiety and other pregnancy issues

Childbirth

Treatments are especially useful in the last few months to prepare for the birth. Your body and Baby work together to start labor and Reflexology is a great support at this time.

Menopause

Reflexology - a natural relief for menopause

Menopause is a natural stage in a woman’s life leading her from Woman to Matriarch; this is a positive change but before getting there, some biological changes throw some hurdles and challenges.

Periods either stop gradually, suddenly or reappear after a short or longer period of time. This is brought about by hormonal fluctuations. A lower production of oestrogen brings about changes and cause symptoms such as hot flushes, tiredness, anxiety, mood swings, depression, and possibly grief for losing the capacity to create life.

Every woman will experience these symptoms differently, from mild to very severe. When the symptoms are severe they are very disruptive, affecting sleep, body temperature, relationships, body weight, sex life and much more. Some women don’t recognize themselves as both their character and body change so much. This affects the whole family as well as the workplace.

Facial Reflexology and Foot Reflexology, with their different techniques, help balance hormones so that the strong fluctuations in symptoms are softened allowing for an easier transition to the post-menopausal phase in life. Hot flushes ease, sleep improves and there is an increased sense of positivity within.

To help the body and to build bone mass, it is important to exercise regularly and to have a healthy, varied diet.

Reflexology supports the transition from Woman to Matriarch
a great time of change - a time of great change

Testimonial

I used to have to change my bed sheets every night due to hot flushes. After only two reflexology treatments, I sleep much better and only need to refresh my bed as per usual. Due to better sleep, I am happier, my family is happier and I can concentrate better at work, what a relief! Thank you
