Reflexology: Boost male fertility

If you’re looking to boost male fertility why not help them relax at the same time? We’ve already seen here how stress and infertility interlink, before we heal the quality of sperm.

What is fertility (or infertility)?

If it’s been 12 months or more and despite your best efforts, conception is still not happening for you.

We class this as infertility or subfertility.  In around 25% of cases this is male infertility.

Questions & Answers

t

About male 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 difficult to conceive.

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

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

Some drugs such as for Crohns or rheumatoid arthritis can affect fertility.  Reflexology has strong results in helping many of these illnesses which could cause 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 sperm production or reduce the size of your testicles having a negative effect on your fertility.

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

They call this secondary infertility and can be common because of 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.

Can a woman get pregnant if a man has a low sperm count?

A low sperm count male infertility with any sperm reading that comes in under 15 million sperm in every millimetre of semen. That’s not to say that a woman can’t get pregnant, it just means that the less sperm, the less chance there is. The problem is exacerbated when the quality of this sperm is also low because this is when you have issues with the sample falling even more short, because it is small to start with and then even smaller because the number of sperm isn’t all the best quality.

This is where we can help at Essential Feeling because by working with men weekly over a three-month period, it is easy for their sperm to improve.

Boost male fertility via mental health

However, it’s important to understand the psych of men because when they discover they have fertility issues, it can affect male egos. That’s not meant to be derogatory, but men are bred to provide for us.

So, for this reason, it can mentally hit men hard. Often harder than if they have to care for a woman who has the fertility issues. Therefore, it is as important as possible to show men that we can improve male fertility relatively easily as whatever affects the male reproductive function also affects their mind.

How can I increase my sperm count naturally and boost male fertility that way?

Supplements

Male fertility supplements help our body to have the right fuel to run optimally when we’re not getting that from our diet and so can boost sperm count and male fertility. D-AA is worth looking into. In short, they claim it helps to increase testosterone levels. Vitamin D can do the same. Also, look into taking zinc and ashwagandha.

Exercise

Regular exercise can boost your testosterone, but be careful. If you’re exercising too much, building too much muscle, it can channel your testosterone off to feed this muscle rather than building quality sperm. Linked to this often is a lack of libido. Small studies have shown fenugreek supplements and mac root to be effective for improving libido (sex drive).

Vitamins

Vitamin C and other antioxidant supplements can boost male fertility if they are low in oxidants.

Stress

We’ve already discussed the effects of stress and fertility, here. Read this page please.

Warning signs

On top of this, look at the warning signs above that your male fertility might need a boost. Whether alcohol intake affects male reproductive function is controversial, but if you’re overweight, which many men are when they consume too much e.g. beer, in the same way that a high (or low) BMI affects women’s fertility, the same is true for men. If your body is fighting the effects of being overweight, it reduces the amount of energy left for producing a healthy sperm count and quality.

Reflexology and male fertility

Boosting male fertility with something as simple as an hour’s reflexology once a week which also improves their ability to cope with stress is something nice for them. A bit of time out from the process of ‘trying to conceive’. And so they are often more inclined to accept this as a way to boost male fertility that if they have to go through traditional medical routes.

I came to see Karen after booking in for a double massage for myself and my partner (he's had massages before, I... haven't) and am amazed at how much of difference one session has made already. Karen and Charlton made us feel comfortable immediately and were both so friendly and warm. They were professional throughout and dealt with both our needs separately. We're both keen to visit again.Both obviously very skilled at what they do.Highly recommended.read more

Following my liposuction and tummy tuck surgery, I had lymphatic drainage and deep tissue massages at Essential... Feelings. Charlie was very professional, made me feel relaxed and knowledgeable about what I need to help with healing after surgery. He was very helpful, flexible and a good communicator. I would recommend them for anyone requiring post surgery massages and will go back for other types of massages. Thank you Charlie and team.read more

Highly recommended.read more

I have always wanted to try reflexology but usually opted for massage instead. However, now I've experienced two... reflexology sessions with Karen, I think I'm a convert! Both sessions have left me feeling calm, restored and well rested. I also had to change the time of my first session and Karen reponded really quickly and was happy to adjust it. I'm really happy with the service and am definitely going to be a new regular customer.read more

I’ve always been skeptical of massages and whether I’m receiving one that’s beneficial for my body as well as worth the... money. I have to say I wish I could give more than 5 stars because Essential Feeling is hands down one of the best massage treatments I have received as well as worth the money. Being currently pregnant too, I was worried that I would be in more pain after the massage however Charlton ensured that my deep tissue massage was tailored to my needs as well as helped with any stiffness and back pain I was experiencing. Karen was also super helpful during my reflexology massage, ensuring that I was relaxed and bought a lot of the swelling in my feet down. My mother also had a deep tissue massage from Charlton who again tailored it to her needs as she has a bad lower back as well as a lovely reflexology massage from Karen. Me and my mum felt that both massage therapists are very professional and solely cater to the needs of the client. They are both also very knowledgeable in the massages they deliver as well as any issues a person has individually with their body. Absolutely wonderful service and wonderful massages! Will definitely be making a return!read more
