Sole Touch provides a range of services, but particularly specialises in fertility reflexology, working with women who may be finding it difficult to conceive. Qualified as a fertility practitioner, Kathleen is passionate about helping women achieve their dream of having a baby and loves nothing better than hearing news about a client’s pregnancy following treatment.
Infertility can result for any number of reasons and as society places increasing stress and pressure on women, this can also affect their ability to conceive. Using fertility reflexology however, Sole Touch helps clients to prepare their minds and bodies for the possibility of a baby, providing both physical and emotional support.
Planning for and conceiving a baby is one of the most exciting experiences in a couple’s life. Pre-conceptual care therefore helps to prepare the body, mind and spirit for the miracle of conceiving, growing and birthing a baby.
Fertility reflexology can help with the following conditions:
- Polycystic ovaries
- Cervical problems
- Adhesions (scar tissue)
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
- Premenstrual syndrome
- Hormonal imbalances
- Blocked or damaged fallopian tubes
- Menstrual problems
How does fertility reflexology work?
If you come to Sole Touch for fertility reflexology, then treatment will centre around gentle stimulation of the various reflex points on your feet. These correspond to parts of the body which will induce relaxation, harmony and equilibrium and, combined with massage to the lower leg, will allow you to completely relax.
Key areas of the body which are linked to fertility health, such as the ovaries, uterus and lymphatic system, will all be targeted, along with the immune, circulatory and neurological system. This is important as the neurological system supports the body in creating the right environment for conception, and applying thumb pressure to this reflex point can help alleviate stress, anxiety and depression.
Treatment will be tailored according to what each client’s specific needs are, and may target the endocrine system (hormone balance), the liver (controls toxin release, hormone balance) and kidneys (for libido, fertility issues).
Supporting assisted cycles: IVF, IUI and ICIS…
Sole Touch offers tailored programmes of reflexology and abdominal massage sessions to clients who are hoping to become pregnant. These are adjusted according to each individual client’s menstrual cycle, to ensure the best possible chances of conceiving, with support provided for those women going through assisted cycles such as IUI, IVF and ICIS.
During a time that can be very emotionally and physically draining, our range of therapies at Sole Touch will help you to relax, easing discomfort and tension. They’ll also encourage a more positive outlook and will work in tandem with your medical treatment.
Benefits of fertility reflexology
There are many benefits linked to fertility reflexology, which breaks negative thought patterns when you’re trying to conceive and makes you feel calmer, more relaxed and in control. Your outlook will change in a more positive way and you’ll also feel less anxious and stressed.
During the treatment, your breathing will also become slower and calmer, while your blood pressure will drop and you’ll become less tense, giving your body more space to heal.
Fertility reflexology will also:
- Balance out hormones by strengthening and supporting the endocrine system
- Increase blood flow to the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes
- Improve egg and sperm health
- Regulate the menstrual cycle
- Naturally stimulate ovulation
- Encourage and support implantation
