It is my absolute honour to join you on every step of your journey towards motherhood, and to continue to support you through your pregnancy and as a new mother too.
Specialising in Fertility using and integrative approach of Reflexology, the Fertile Body Method and EFT Tapping
It is difficult discovering you are one of the “one in six couples” who are having difficulties conceiving. Having been there myself, I understand how upsetting this can be. I know the huge emotional and physical stress that couples are under when trying to get pregnant because I’ve been there too.
I believe I have gone through this long journey for a reason. It’s my soul’s purpose to help other couples who find themselves in the same position I was in. I totally understand what you are going through – the highs and the lows. I will support you every step of the way, if you want me to !

How prevalent are Fertility Issues ?
Well, approximately one third of fertility issues are on the male side, one third on the female side and one third are issues on both sides. You see, conceiving is a very complicated dance between the egg and the sperm. Everything needs to be in order on both the female and male side, for a pregnancy to take place.
Infertility can be linked to stress, anxiety and hormonal imbalances. These can cause Endometriosis, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, irregular or no menstrual cycle etc. Your ability to conceive, for both of you, can also be dependent on factors such as;
- Foods you eat
Why try my Fertility Treatments ?
Before embarking on the more invasive, stressful and very expensive alternatives, it is worth your while having a course of Fertility Reflexology in conjunction with the Fertile Body Method and EFT Tapping. Your physical body will be gently re-balanced with the Fertility Reflexology whilst boosting and stimulating the reproductive organs and endocrine system. This will also direct blood flow to the reproductive organs.
We’ll also use techniques such as EFT Tapping to relieve stress and anxiety and remove emotional blocks that can be getting in the way of conception.
What has Stress got to do with it ?
Quite often one or other in the couple are stressed and don’t even realise they are. Sometimes we get so used to being stressed that we don’t recognise it when we have it. The fact that you are not getting pregnant month after month will put stress on your body.
When we are stressed, our Reproductive, Digestive and Repair functions are paused as the body prepares for “Fight or Flight”. Reflexology will help to reduce this stress, bringing everything back in to balance and allowing our reproductive organs to work optimally again.
Also, our body’s are amazing. They know that being stressed is not the ideal time to have a baby, so it will not cooperate. The perception of an unsafe environment is enough to disrupt the vital systems required to conceive.
If you are currently struggling with emotions such as fear, anger, grief or anxiety or they are stored in the memories in the body, there will be a struggle to procreate. With EFT Tapping I aim to eliminate these negatively charged events so the body is free to do what it was made to do, and that is, to have a baby.
When the body is relaxed and de-stressed, energy levels are restored to these areas. Regular Reflexology treatments and EFT Tapping will help to maintain this relaxed state, reduce cortisol levels and allow the reproductive hormones to work more effectively. Often when the client relaxes and feels they are actively doing something to help themselves, they get pregnant very quickly.
If all else fails……
Alas, not all fertility issues can be corrected with Reflexology so it may be necessary to visit your GP for a referral for further investigations. If a couple are under 35 and have been trying to conceive for a year with no success, then a visit to their GP is in order. If you are over 35 and have been trying for 6 months with no success, you should pay a visit to your GP also to get things checked out.
If Assisted Reproductive Techniques (ART) such as IVF, ICSI, IUI, Clomid or FET is required, it is now recommended to have reflexology during this stressful time. I prepare a treatment plan which is tailored to coincide with the treatment you are going through with your Fertility Clinic. This can help to increase the success rate by reducing stress, keeping the body balanced and enhancing your treatment.
On your first session with me, we will need to complete a Fertility Consultation Form which will be updated at each session. I also request that you send me or bring any test reports with you. These will allow me to investigate further and to create a personalised treatment for you.
What else can Reflexology be used for ?
This amazing treatment is also great for helping you at any stage of your life. At puberty it can help teenagers suffering with painful or irregular periods. It is also great for balancing hormones if you are going through the menopause when their are big hormonal swings and hot flushes to contend with.
Your hormones will gently be balanced which will ease your symptoms. Whether you are suffering from PMT, menopause, baby blues and post natal depression, we’ve got you covered.
How often should I get a treatment ?
First of all, it should be remembered that it takes 3 months to produce healthy sperm and one month to produce a healthy egg.
I recommend that you get one treatment a week for the first 2 months and then every 2 weeks for the 3rd month. The treatment is tailored to your cycle and each week will be a different routine. This helps to bring the hormones in to balance.
I STRONGLY RECOMMEND you include EFT Tapping with your Fertility Reflexology
Because not all fertility issues are physical ones, I recommend an integrative approach to fertility. That is why I have trained and am fully certified in both the Fertile Body Method and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT Tapping). These techniques allow us to explore any mental or emotional blocks that may be getting in the way of you conceiving your baby. You can add these on to your Fertility Reflexology treatment or you can book them as standalone sessions also.
