reflexology worked a treat for me and I conceived in about 4 weeks after a year of trying - it did hurt though (in the bits I had problems with) but I felt brilliant afterwards! She also made me detox as well which may have helped - though I never quite gave up wine !
I can't remember what I paid for it - maybe about £15-20 for an hour. It is called "sweet pain" - but it made me practically jump off the bed! Supposedly the bit they put pressure on also sweats when theressure is applied!
I did get quite emotional and cried afterwards on one occasion.
She worked a lot on my adrenal gland (possibly hurting due to stress etc) and my fallopian tubes were a bit sore hen she got to that bit of my foot. She also though I might have an iron deficiency so I ate loads of spinach and watermelon.
Whatever she did it seemed to put me in a better place.
Haven't needed it this time round - got pregnant first go
reflexology has been amazing for me and is the highlight of my week. Having said that it hasn,t actually worked yet but fingers crossed. It certainly worked for a friend of mine. It doesnt hurt and is blissful but I tried acupuncture too and that surely did hurt. I know which I prefer! I pay 25 pounds per session. There are specialist baby and fertility reflexologists so check around for a suitable one.
I had acupuncture and I think it helped me a lot. I had it in the run up to a successful IVF (now have a 1 year old DS) but there is a lot of evidence that it can help improve IVF rates and also fertility in general. I haven't had reflexology so can't comment on that. Good luck!
hi beanieb, i had acupuncture to improve my fertility and i got pregnant pretty much straightaway. at that time, i was tracking my hormone levels with cleablue fertility sticks, and i noticed that my hormone levels increased after i had acupuncture.
Hello, I am a reflexologist and thought I would give you a little bit more info if you are interested keep reading. Reflexology can be done on your feet or your hands and even on your ears if some find someone specialist enough. People who respond well and are comfortable with touch find that reflexology can work best for them rather than a treatment such as acupunture where their is limited amounts. It is best to look at diet and cut out processed foods whilst having reflexology as it can help promote the removal of toxins in your system. It is also excellent for stress and the therapist will be actively encouraging you to relax and unwind, and whilst you can chat during sessions it is welcomed if you lay back and close your eyes. It can be a little uncomfortable if a particular area is being worked on which may relate to areas you have issues in but we cant diagnose or say you have a particular condition. It is true that some people can be emotional afterwards as this is part of the bodies healing response, other reponses could be mild headache or needing to go the the toilet more frequently but these responses should pass within 24 hours. I will keep an eye out incase anyone has anymore questions which I may be able to help on.
