What is fertility? (or infertility)

If its been 12 months or more and despite your best efforts conception is still not happening for you.

This is classed as infertility or sub fertility.  In around 25% of cases this is male infertility.

About fertility/ about infertility

One major contributing factor of male fertility issues which we know as infertility (or sub fertility) is that when you under any kind of stress whether this be physical ailments or mental your body will deal with this, but this has a knock on effect...  


The more energy that your body uses dealing with stress means it has less to deal with the normal ‘housekeeping’ of your body and so it becomes less efficient at disposing of toxins.  Your body will recognise that your reproductive organs are not critical to your life and so more often than not your body stores toxins in this area making it extremely difficult to conceive.

This can wind up with you and you partner tracking ovulation around the best time for conception to the point where you have an ovulation calendar and very often undergoing IVF.  This all causes stress!

Getting pregnant with fertility reflexology

Firstly, this isn’t a magic pill that can take and everything will be OK.  Fertility reflexology aims to work like building blocks that over time can reduce your stress levels.  By doing this we can often remove the blockers that stop your body behaving as it does naturally - we all know that getting pregnant is the most natural thing in the world!

Male fertility conditions that may respond well to Reflexology

Infected semen

Low sperm count

Decreased sperm mobility

Fluid retention around the testicular area

Prostate gland problems

After effects of testicular cancer/ surgery

Low levels of testosterone (hypogonadism)


My medication has sub fertility side effects - can Reflexology help?

Some drugs such as for Crohns or rheumatoid arthritis can affect fertility.  Reflexology has some great results in helping many of these illnesses which could result in less dependency on the drugs and therefore improved male fertility. See details of diseases reflexology may help here


Likewise, some herbal remedies such as root extracts of Tripterygium wilfordii (a Chinese herb), can affect the production of sperm or reduce the size of your testicles having a negative effect on your fertility.


Can Reflexology aid fertility in men?

In short - yes!  Statistics show male infertility is affects around 25% of sub fertility cases. Reflexology may help male infertility by re-balancing the body in the same was as it would for a female.   


How long does it take to see results?

Everyone is different and the time to see results will vary according to how deep rooted your problems are.  Most people will start to respond positively to Reflexology within 3 to 6 weekly appointments, meaning that this is when we start to work past the general imbalances and can start to address the more severe imbalances.


Infertility Reflexology treatments are a minimum of an hour and a half to ensure that you get the best possible results by allowing time in your sessions to have a full treatment with the necessary level of reinforcements.


Can reflexology be used to support medical fertility procedures?

Yes, Reflexology supports medical fertility procedures positively as it prepares you physically and emotionally by ensuring your body is in the best possible condition to optimise the chance of a successful pregnancy.


I’ve been told we have ‘unexplained infertility’ can reflexology help this?

If medical tests have shown no reason for you being unable to conceive successfully this is unexplained infertility.  Reflexology can assist this by ensuring that both you and your partners are in optimum condition by re-balancing areas that may not have been picked up through medical tests.


I’ve already had a child and yet I’m being told we’re now infertile?

This is called secondary infertility and can be quite common due to our bodies reacting to changing external stimuli.  Reflexology may therefore be very effective for secondary infertility as it re-balances the body and realigns those things which were once in place.


Is there a consultation process?

Yes.  If you have a computer, we’ll send you a consultation form to complete before you come along for your reflexology treatment.  This will allow you to go through your medical history and lifestyle as there may be contributory factors such as long working hours, erratic eating patterns and diet, little exercise which may affect your fertility.


When you arrive we’ll chat through your consultation form to fully understand everything and then we’ll develop your very own treatment plan tailored to your needs.    


Where will I be treated?

Your reflexology treatment will be in a comfortable, calm treatment room with soft lighting and specialist relaxation music.


What will happen during the treatment?

During your reflexology therapy, you will be seated in a specialist chair.  You will need to take off your shoes and socks/ stockings.  Then during the treatment we will keep the foot that isn’t being worked on covered with soft towels to keep it warm whilst your other foot is being treated.


We will then begin assessing your feet visually before gently warming up your feet.  Then it will be on to the actual treatment. You will receive treatment to your right foot first, and then your left.  


The emphasis of the treatment content will depend on your individual needs as every reflexology is individually tailored.  We will rework your particular areas of specialist need before finishing off with a warm down & if you have booked a longer treatment, a luxury foot and lower leg massage.


What do I do during a reflexology treatment?

Make yourself comfortable. If your therapist wants you to adjust your position, he or she will either move you or will ask you to move as necessary. Otherwise, change your position anytime to make yourself more comfortable. Many people close their eyes and relax completely during a session; others prefer to talk. It's up to you. This is your time, whatever feels natural to you is the best way to relax. Do not hesitate to ask questions at any time.


During reflexology your body releases toxins. This process can mean that your body temperature can change at any time, so please do say if you become cold. Likewise, if the pressure is too light or hard, then please feel free to say as everyone is different.


How will I feel after reflexology?

Most people feel really relaxed after reflexology, then most people will then feel rejuvenated and full of energy.  You may experience some aches and pains for around 24 hours after your treatment as the body flushes the toxins that have been released.  In order to speed this process along, drink lots of water after reflexology.


Why would I not be able to have a reflexology treatment?

There are a few illnesses which mean reflexology would not be the best holistic therapy for you.  In this instance, we wouldn’t be able to treat you with reflexology, but there are plenty of other therapies that would be more suitable and we can help and advise you in making the best choice.


What conditions are not suitable for reflexology?

Contagious or notifiable diseases

Immediately before or after surgery

Under the influence of alcohol or drugs

Immediately after chemotherapy or radiation, unless recommended by your doctor



Please Note:  Reflexology is a totally safe and complementary treatment (it does not replace medical treatment). If you are in any doubt at all, please consult with your GP prior to treatment.  It is important to understand that Reflexology is not a miracle cure, but it is the best chance you can give your body to conceive naturally.
