Complementary therapies will support your journey

Seeking treatment for fertility can be an extremely vulnerable time for couples, leading to stress and anxiety which can actually be counterproductive against a positive outcome. Fertility treatment is something that should be tackled from every angle, ensuring as minimal stress along the way as possible.

IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation) has been renowned worldwide for it’s potential to help couples conceive, but due to the large expense per round of treatment and mere 40% success rate, it may be out of many peoples reach. The good news is – that’s not the only option!

Whether in a financial position to explore the medical treatments or otherwise, holistic therapies offer a fantastic route for couples to travel towards their path of parenthood.

The advantage is that they are complementary – meaning that even if you are trying for a baby using conventional methods, certain holistic therapies will indeed compliment your efforts. 

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the safest and most effective treatments for infertility known to modern science. For thousands of years, Acupuncture has been used to help couples deal with fertility & prenatal issues. It works through a combination of boosting blood flow to the reproductive organs, balancing hormones and the endocrine system while also lowering stress levels – all of which are vital for ensuring a healthy pregnancy. For men, Acupuncture can significantly improve semen quality and increase sperm count. For expectant women, it can also alleviate morning sickness.

Reflexology

Reflexology for fertility uses a specific acupressure technique applied to the feet which correspond to the reproductive organs and endocrine system; the most important systems in conception and pregnancy. Through skilled and gentle manipulation, a Reflexologist can help to unblock the flow of energy in bodily organs and therefore rebalance entire systems, creating a much stronger chance of a healthy pregnancy. Reflexology is advised to begin 3 months before starting traditional fertility treatments such as IVF and IUI.

Massage

Booking a massage shouldn’t just be a spa-day treat; it’s called ‘Massage Therapy’ for a very good reason. Did you know that you are able to tailor a massage specifically for fertility? This unique technique blends various types of massage which all work to stimulate the reproductive and digestive organs, alleviate stress within the body and therefore enhance chances of fertility. It can also help with issues such as endometriosis, fibroids, cysts and other factors which may inhibit conception.

But wait, there’s more! Upon your consultation, our therapists can also offer additional advice on diet, lifestyle and stress reduction techniques which can increase your chances. Our skilled team of therapists are specifically trained to help you tackle fertility problems head on, while remaining empathetic and compassionate to your situation.
