Reflexology/ Hypnosis- to enhance fertility and conception

Janet Naylor - Hypnobirthing in CumbriaThinking of having a baby, preparing to become pregnant?: I offer Reflexology  and Hypnosis therapies to enhance fertility  and pre conception. 

No one can promise that following reflexology/hypnosis treatments that you will become pregnant but many women find that the benefits of the deep relaxation that ensues with reflexology may have a positive effect of the body systems as a whole….benefits are cummulative. I have been qualified as a reflexologist since 2000, I am also qualified as a Fertile Body Method (FBM) Therapist, with a keen interest in the mind/body for over 30 years. For further information about FBM please see here:

One of the benefits of reflexology is that it may increase your fertility. I have worked with women who became pregnant having been told that they may never conceive naturally. I encourage women to take other positive steps in addition to increase their fertility, and will discuss for example diet, lifestyle and nutrition.

If you are considering becoming pregnant, reflexology and/or hypnosis may be beneficial, to work in harmony and balance your hormones as well as other body systems. Some would agree it is a good idea to get fit and healthy before conception! At the very least, reflexology and/or hypnosis will probably make you feel very relaxed; it may ease or relieve certain conditions and anything else will be a bonus! I work with you holitiscally , so benefits are at a physical, mental and emotional level.

Reflexology today is a precisely defined form of treatment based on the principle that the anatomy of the body is reflected in miniature on reflex zones on the feet and also on the hands (though a little less defined). By using specific techniques of holds and pressures on these regions, healing is both initiated and accelerated in the corresponding area of the body. Sometimes the body is in a state of ‘imbalance’ following illness or injury, disease or stress and energy pathways are blocked preventing the body from functioning effectively.

Reflexology aims to balance body systems and hormones… and may be beneficial to women with polycystic ovaries or hormone imbalances, irregular periods and for those hoping to conceive, it may increase fertility along with other support systems. There are no guarantees that following regular treatments that it will result in pregnancy but the benefits of deep relaxation may have a positive effect and cannot be underestimated. I have treated women who have been told that they will never conceive naturally, and then they have! At the very least you are likely to feel very relaxed; anything else may be a bonus!

Reflexology may be considered beneficial for:

– Pre conception – preparing to conceive, becoming healthier, healthy egg and healthy sperm

– Fertility Support – balancing hormones, polycystic ovaries, reducing stress of “trying” to conceive

– Pregnancy Labour, Birth and Beyond – all aspects

– Acute and chronic conditions, digestive disorders, migraines, aches and pains

– Sleep disorders and general relaxation, may help stress related conditions

– To try as a more natural induction of labour

– To try to “turn” a breech baby to head down

Benefits of Reflexology:

– It can help to increase endorphins (your own body’s pain killers)

– It can help to detox and rid the body of toxins

– It can induce a deep state of relaxation and sleep.

Reflexology helps restore and maintain the body’s natural equilibrium and encourage healing. One of the wonders of Reflexology is that it can bring about the same sensations of relaxation and restfulness that a full body massage can produce and therefore it can be considered most useful in the treatment of stress.

Reflexology for physical, mental and emotional well being…before pregnancy, in pregnancy and beyond…

At your first appointment: I will take a medical and lifestyle history, please let me know before booking if you have a medical condition or have any serious health concerns. I cannot treat you if you have any infections of the feet. If in doubt please discuss when you call. The first appointment includes a Consultation. Benefits are cumulative and many have weekly sessions then less frequently depending on the reason for attending. Equally some benefit from one or two sessions or have as a “treat” or “pampering” session.

Hypnosis with Reflexology:  As a Fertile Body Method Therapist (FBM), I can use Hypnosis alongside Reflexology to enhance the benefits. FBM is a holistic therapy that uses hypnosis and mind/body approaches to work with the intention of wanting to conceive, whether that be natural or assisted conception.    Call me in confidence to discuss further.

Cost: £75 for first Reflexology/Hypnosis session, £50 for subsequent sessions.
