Fertility issues:

The NHS suggest that around one in six couples have difficulty conceiving, however, the numbers who are actually infertile is only 5%. Fertility issues can cause considerable anxiety for a couple and stress can be an influencing factor.  Stress may reduce libido which in turn can reduce the frequency of sexual intercourse and severe stress may also affect female ovulation and limit sperm production. Reflexology may relieve symptoms of stress by inducing relaxation, improving mood, aiding sleep and easing tension – all factors which may improve your overall sense of wellbeing.  Reflexology can also help to regulate your monthly cycle and therefore make it easier to predict ovultion.


Reflexology can make pregnancy more relaxing for the mum-to-be. Reflexology may aid the pregnant woman’s sleep, relieve the various musculoskeletal problems associated with carrying a baby, and improve mood during a period of hormonal changes.


Post-natal care can be provided for the new mum at a time when it is most needed. Giving birth can leave a new mum both exhilarated and exhausted. With all her focus on her new baby, mums can forget that they also need to be cared for and reflexology may help improve their overall sense of wellbeing – as well as aiding much needed sleep and helping to relieve the tensions expected in the first few weeks.
