Sub Fertility and IVF
Reflexology is increasingly being used to help sub-fertile couples to conceive, and studies are taking place which show just how effective it can be, not least because of it's deeply relaxing effects. This is more of an issue these days, as women are deciding to postpone having a family until the mid-thirties or even later, when fertility levels have decreased significantly.
There is also a study being undertaken with couples having IVF treatment. This study is showing that reflexology is improving the chances of a baby so conceived being carried to term. It is also, of course, an excellent therapy for helping to balance the hormones involved and to cope with the emotional ups and downs of the process.
