Reflexology is an ancient practice and is thought to have been first practiced in Egypt as far back as 2330 BC. It can be especially beneficial for both women and men suffering from infertility.
In this Blog, we look at how Reflexology can help with infertility and how it can help to maximise your chance of a pregnancy.
What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a non-invasive touch therapy that is used mainly on the hands, feet and lower leg which can be key in promoting and optimising good health. There are 7000 nerve endings on the feet and these nerve endings are linked to every organ within the body.
Reflexology is a very soothing therapy that can really help to unblock the flow of energy in the reproductive organs to help rebalance hormones and regulate the menstrual cycle.
How Can Reflexology Help With Infertility?
Reflexology can be really effective in clearing toxins from the body, which can then help to:
- Restore hormonal balances in women and men
- Reduce stress and anxiety levels
- Regulate menstrual cycles
- Improve the natural healing process
- Reduce pain associated with fertility issues
- Improve sperm health
Rebalancing hormones and reducing stress can all help to boost fertility levels and maximise the chance of a pregnancy.
Can Reflexology Boost My Chance of a Pregnancy?
Studies and evidence around the world suggest that Reflexology does play a beneficial role for women and men suffering from infertility and can help to boost fertility levels. However, as with most research, there isn’t enough strong evidence at the moment to definitely prove that it improves pregnancy success rates.
Here at Fertility Retreats, we strongly believe that Reflexology can make a difference and improve the chance of a pregnancy. When certain pressure points on the feet that are directly linked to the reproductive organs are massaged, this can encourage the elimination of toxins, improve blood flow and unblock energy levels, which all help the body to regain natural balance and improve the chance of a pregnancy.
What Are The Benefits of Reflexology for Infertility?
Reflexology helps you to relax and increases levels of happiness and calmness. Some other benefits of reflexology for improving fertility levels are:
- Improves energy levels
- Reduces stress and anxiety
- Creates a positive approach
- Strengthens reproductive health
- Unblocks energy levels
- Regains natural balance
Are There any Side Effects to Reflexology?
Many people have no side effects whatsoever. However, some people do experience some side effects, which can include, a mild fever and diarrhoea. Any side effects tend to be extremely mild and short lived.
