I have treated many women for infertility and have helped them to conceive – it can be an emotionally exhausting condition – not to mention expensive.  Thanks to reflexology, a growing number of couples are discovering that this is a key to overcoming infertility.

Reflexology, a traditional healing art dating from the ancient Egyptians and Chinese, involves manipulation of pressure points in the hands and feet and is often used to ease period pain, headaches, sinus and back problems as well as the effects of chemotherapy.

The soles of the feet are like a mini map of the inside of the body and are linked to our inner organs and systems, including the fallopian tubes, ovaries and the endocrine system. Pressure on the different points on the feet unblocks energy pathways in the body enabling it to regain its natural balance and therefore start to heal itself.

Specific points on the feet are associated with a woman’s egg production and others are related to endocrine (hormone) glands (pituitary, pineal, hypothalamus, ovaries etc important in conception and pregnancy) and by manipulation of these areas can correct the imbalances which hamper conception.

The latest research in this subject is a two year clinical trial at the IVF unit at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth.

In the new study, 150 volunteers will be offered reflexology rather than the fertility drug clomifene, which is usually used to induce ovulation. This drug works in about 70 per cent of patients, but the drug’s main drawback is it can increase the likelihood of a multiple pregnancy.

The volunteers will each receive eight treatments over a two to three month period. In order for the trial to be conducted in a scientific way, patients and hospital staff will not know whether true reflexology or a ‘dummy’ version has been given. Only the reflexologist will know who has had the real treatment.

One in seven couples suffers with infertility. Last year the Plymouth IVF unit saw over 900 patients. Thirty per cent of these were not producing eggs.

Infertility is a complex problem and often what is needed is a ‘kick-start’ to the system and reflexology can do this.  In my experience, reflexology, along with acupuncture/acupressure, hormone balancing advice (ie natural progesterone cream, diet, vitamins and minerals)  is very effective and I have successfully treated many women and have helped them conceive and have seen them right through their pregnancies.

Infertility is a sensitive, emotional and costly process. I have lots of women coming to see me because they’re trying to conceive. Many are on the verge of undergoing fertility treatment. Yet, after a few reflexology treatments, some guidance and nutritional advice they fall pregnant. More often than not it’s simply a case of balancing the hormones in the body by carefully and systematically working on the corresponding reflex points. Hormones are produced and regulated by a highly complex and delicate endocrine system. There are so many things which throw our endocrine system out of balance: excess oestrogen, contraceptive pill and so on.

A medical study has now been launched to discover if reflexology can really help women conceive. A two year clinical trial at the IVF unit at Derriford Hospital, Plymouth is the brainchild of reflexologist, Jane Holt who approached the unit after 13 of the 23 women she treated with a range of fertility problems fell pregnant.

Did you know that a lot of information can be obtained from your feet? A trained therapist can tell whether you’re a hard worker (a ‘cart horse’), someone who likes to be pampered (a ‘princess’ type) or someone who hogs the limelight and wants recognition for their merits! It’s true.

Look at your feet – how do you feel about them? I’ve received some very interesting answers to that question which tell me a lot about how the person sees themself.

Feet reading is indeed a fascinating subject. Here’s some more information to whet your appetite:
A very short little toe – someone who has had to grow up too quickly
High arches – someone who is independent with strong inner resources
Second toe longer than the other toes – someone who has natural leadershp qualities

Even a bunion can be indicative of someone who bends over backwards to help othes!

Interesting, eh?
