Treating all of the body through the sole's of the feet
Reflexology can be used as a complementary tool to boost fertility in both men and women. The endocrine system plays a key role when trying to conceive. Factors like age, nutrition, weight, body fat (excess or absence) and stress amongst others can affect fertility.
Reflexology can help to restore balance and harmony in the whole body as well as providing support and relaxation during this often stressful period. The feet can be a mirror of the body and this concept helps reflexologists to locate areas, through a mixture of gentle and firm pressure in the areas that need extra care. In this case, focusing on those that correspond to reproductive organs and endocrine system.
It is recommended to have reflexology regularly for best effects. The usual recommendation is to attend a session before ovulation and after implantation to relieve stress in the body and boost fertility hormones. This treatment can be complemented with medical reflexology. It is advised to prepare 3 months before starting IVF and IUI. Reflexology treatments can be partially covered by most private health insurance. These include: VHI, Glo Health, Aviva and Laya Health Care. Your therapists must be a registered member of one of these listed association.
