Infertility can be emotionally exhausting. Many couples are told there is nothing physically wrong and there is no medical reason given as to why they are struggling to conceive. This can lead to feelings of increased anxiety and stress which in themselves can be a major block when it comes to getting pregnant.
Reflexology at this time can be of great support to both men and women. It can improve sleep, reduce stress levels and allow a deep relaxation that can ease the tension and help nature to take its course.
Reflexology has been found to be helpful to some couples before they seek specific fertility treatment, and it can be helpful during the various stages of IVF.
Reflexology is not a substitute for the help, advice and tests you will get at the hospital or in your fertility clinic, but working alongside your doctor it can give you the emotional support you need.
