Unexplained infertility affects thousands of people and it can have a devastating effect on couples. These days we expect to get a medical diagnosis to a problem. And so, when all the tests are done and there isn’t an explanation as to why you aren’t able to get pregnant, it can leave you feeling frustrated and completely at a loss as to what to do next.
This is where natural solutions come to the fore. Logic would suggest that if there is no medical reason that the doctors can find that is affecting your or your partners fertility then there must be another invisible reason that is affecting it.
This could be diet, lifestyle, environment, state of mind e.g. stress, or a combination of all of these factors that could be affecting the natural balance in your body.
Reflexology is an ancient traditional holistic therapy treatment which aims to restore the body to its natural balance and its becoming increasingly popular with couples who are trying to conceive.
Imagine the feet being a map of the entire body. They are divided into ten energy zones. Through special thumb and finger compression manipulations to stimulate reflex points on the feet we can identify areas of blockage within these zones and can pinpoint which reflex within the body it relates to. By gently working over the area we can help restore balance by freeing up the blockage and encouraging the body’s natural defence resources to work again.
Reflexology is a gentle treatment which aims to restore balance and stimulate the body to heal itself. Typically the feet are used, however reflexology massage can sometimes be used on the hands. This is useful if you have an area on the foot that cannot be worked on. It is not designed to be a miracle cure but it is an effective, relaxing, rebalancing and energizing treatment using the feet to treat the whole body.
In my experience Reflexology helps regulate monthly cycles, address hormone imbalances, shorten longer cycles, and address luteal phase defects as well as overall rebalancing after years of taking contraceptive medication. It also helps significantly with clients suffering from endometriosis and can have a very positive affect on pain relief.
Freya Natural Therapy Reflexology Fertility treatment
The recommended programme for fertility rebalancing treatment is to have a 45 minute treatment once a week for the first month, thereafter I recommend a treatment every other week. Depending on where you are in your cycle I will be giving a holistic treatment but also focusing on the pituitary gland, ovaries, and uterus reflex points.
Once you have conceived, I recommend you continue to receive reflexology at least once a month to continue to maintain balance and to help relieve you from some of the other side effects of pregnancy.
I treat clients at Freya Natural Therapy in Farnham, Surrey GU9 0AN.
Maximise your success with the holistic approach to fertility
On a final note, quite often its not just one thing that prevents you from getting pregnant so alongside Reflexology I would recommend that you and your partner take specialist fertility vitamins, follow a healthy diet with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables avoiding any prepackaged food, take a good amount of exercise outdoors – ideally together, and cut down on any stress in your lives.
