Reflexology and TTC

(16 Posts)

i thought i'd start a new thread on this, as the ttc threads are very long and anything i may say will get lost. on a number of threads i have suggested reflexology for ttc and IVF.

the link i am posting has lots of information, although personally i worry when folk claim the credit. we therapists are just facillitators, afterall. womens own published an article on this lady last november, i think it was.

click here

now i should point out that i have absolutely no affiliation with this therapist or her site... but it has information that may help. (as does mine!)

i did ask the forum techs if we could have a complementary health forum, for any questions and discussions but apparently not .

so i am posting this with no other ulterior motive but to give information.

best wishes

bumping this...

also, as a matter of interest, did any of you follow the link and if so, what did you think?

did you think it had useful information?

Hi rosies, I did follow the link but abandoned it because she is so far away from me... However, I have been inspired to look for another reflexologist, and have found quite a few in my area (not surprisiing - I'm in London). Any tips for how I can check out in advance how good they are likely to be? Or is it just a question of going with whoever 'feels right'?

Rosies, I'm writing a feature about conceiving after using alternative/complementary therapies - could you help? Can I CAT you? Or look on the "MEDIA" thread for my details.

Ooh, sorry about that..

I'm working on some stuff for a colonic hydrotherapy clinic at the moment (I'm a copywriter), and apparently they have a very high conception rate amongst their clients - whether they're TTC or not.

I am looking for case histories... details on the Media thread - very grateful for any help. Mumsnetters are wonderful!

hi hester,

the point of the link was for information really... its quite a comprehensive site and this reflexologist has had much success and has lots of quotes from happy clients.

as for finding a therapist, when you phone someone, ask what experience they have with what you want treated... have they been on special maternity related courses, that sort of thing. and yes, it is a bit of going on how you feel.

i do know quite a few good therapists around the place though, so if you narrow your area down a bit, i'd be happy to recommend someone.

Oooh complementary health is a good idea for a topic - be used more than SPORT FFS!

Thanks for your links.

hi morningpaper,

yes, i have been a little surprised at some of the forum headings that appeared and dont seem that well used... another one, to see how it went, wouldnt have made a lot of difference, imo.

ahh well, never mind... folk can always CAT me... i'm happy to help where i can

Thanks rosies, anywhere in central London is good for me. I live in west central London and work in the east end.

rosies Mon 17-Jan-05 22:45:34

hi hester,

i tried to send you a long message with details of a therapist that might be near you, but you dont receive CAT messages.

please check out this link.

good luck

rosies, that is SO kind. Thanks very much; I will definitely follow this up (and let you know what happens!)

rosies Tue 18-Jan-05 11:00:07

i'll be interested to know how it goes!
