What is Reflexology and how can it help with fertility?

Reflexology: History, Benefits and Emotions

Reflexology is an ancient technique used to access the whole body through the nerve endings on the hands, feet, and ears. Around the world and throughout history, reflexology has been rediscovered time and time again. Archeological found evidence that points to ancient reflexology medical practices in Egypt (2330 BCE), China (2704 BCE) and Japan (690 CE). Research has shown that specific techniques of reflexology are effective and beneficial in many ways. A survey of 170 reflexology from 21 countries shows that reflexology is effective in impacting a variety of physical and psychological concerns, one of these being fertility.    

Reflexology for Fertility:
Rebecca Slome, the Fertility Reflexologist and founder  of Mommy To Be Reflexology, works with the whole person,

while dealing specifically with the reproductive and endocrine

system; ovaries, uterus, and fallopian tubes. Fertility Reflexology in Los Angeles involves the gentle application of pressure to the feet with a special emphasis on the endocrine and reproductive systems. At the initial consultation, the practitioner will talk to the client about their general health and medical history, as well as, focus on any fertility related matters. A program of regular appointments will be set up with the client, weekly or even twice weekly (during the week before the woman ovulates).Paraffin wax is applied to the hands and feet and they are then covered in an electric foot warmer. This is done to prepare them for the Reflexologists to apply pressure. During the session, the endocrine system will be stimulated with particular emphasis on the pituitary and thyroid glands. The immune system will be strengthened and stress will be released, leaving the client relaxed and refreshed. During the visualization treatment, techniques are used to promote emotional release and to break fear barriers around fertility.    

Maternity Reflexology  ( reflexology for pregnant women) is offered in the comfort of your home and can be used for

fertility, through a woman's

pregnancy for relaxation, to induce labor, and as postpartum care .

After the feet have been warmed, they are ready for the mind body balance, which is Fertility Reflexology. Treatments include specific techniques to stimulate ovulation, strengthen the pelvic girdle, release blockages, and balance hormones. It has been known to balance out the endocrine system, bring more blood to the organs, ease stress, flush out toxic build up, promote relaxation, and regulate the menstrual cycle. The wonderful thing about Reflexology is it offers noninvasive access to a clients key organs involved in reproduction along with a deep sense of relaxation though the balancing out the body. Many report a tingling in the rest of the body while pressure is being applied on the feet. Simply amazing!     

The Mind Body Balance

This mind body balance is a key ingredient in the success many women are achieving in the U.K., which has already adopted Reflexology for Fertility and Maternity into the main stream.  As an avid believer in the mind body connection, Mommy To Be Reflexology also focuses on deep relaxation, guided visualization, and emotional release techniques with essential oils, which are incorporated into every service preformed. Every Reflexology pressure point connected to an organ is a direct link to an emotion attached to that organ. Emotions are like ocean waves- they ebb and flow. They are powerful and provide momentum initiating action. Many of us are aware of the negative side of an emotion but are rarely aware of the other side, let alone how to access it. The expression of a negative side of an emotion is painful and we create defenses to protect ourselves. One of the ways we do that is to ignore these emotions, which consequently turns to physical pain. The limbic system in the brain, which is responsible for emotions, is activated as the client breaths in the essential oils associated with the organ being activated. The mind body balance is achieved. For example, the ovaries have to do with fear of repression and a special essential oil is assigned to deal with that fear along with adopting the other side of that emotion being creativity.  Fertility Reflexology is a wonderful, heart opening service for women going through the fertility journey.    

We at Mommy To Be Reflexology are here to serve as an integrative option in the journey to motherhood. Of course, there are no guarantees as with anything, but opening up to the idea that anything is possible never hurt anyone.

We take a personalized approach, incorporating medical
history and emotional needs  with gives each client a special and
unique experience.
