During 2019, to further my specialisation and to gain more knowledge in a subject close to my heart, I completed training in Reproductive Reflexology (or Reproflexology™). The course is run by the highly acclaimed Barbara Scott who has been practising as a reflexologist for the past twenty years and has developed successful treatment plans for enhancing and treating fertility issues. Barbara Scott is considered to be one of Europe’s leading fertility practitioners, training hundreds of reflexologists to use the methods she has developed to great effect. After successfully completing the course and conducting detailed case studies on both male and female fertility clients, I am now a proud member of the Association of Reproductive Reflexologists (ARR).
Reproductive Reflexology (or Reproflexology™) is the study of and treatment of male and female reproductive conditions and fertility issues using reflexology. It can be used as a stand-alone treatment to enhance your natural fertility, or with all forms of assisted conception including Clomid, IUI, IVF and ICSI. It can also be used to support individuals and couples using surrogacy or donors in IVF cycles.
Members of the Association of Reproductive Reflexologists (MARR) are specially trained, using structured and prescriptive treatment protocols, to support couples through all phases of their assisted conception programme.

From personal experience with my own fertility journey, including multiple rounds of IVF treatment, I know how stressful trying for a baby can be and I fully recognise the roller coaster of emotions which both partners may go through. Increased anxiety, stress and depression are just some of the many side effects which couples experience when facing fertility challenges.
Reflexology uses a holistic approach, treating the mind, body and soul, as a whole, in order to restore balance and improve general health and well-being. Some of the benefits of reflexology may include deep relaxation, reduced stress and anxiety, lifting of mood and sense of well-being.
Reproductive reflexology can then take this one step further and specific techniques can be used to help ease a variety of reproductive conditions. It is important that we complete a detailed consultation, in order to establish a full history of health and well-being. I can then start to build personalised protocols which will aim to improve the specific issues which we have discussed.
It is important that both men and women have a healthy, well-functioning reproductive system, not only when considering having a baby but also for general health and well-being. There are many conditions that affect the reproductive system and below, I mention a few which may be helped by using reproductive reflexology.
As part of our detailed consultation, I would ask you to bring copies of any medical test results so we can review together and also review any recommendations/protocols that your GP or consultant may have given to you. I may then advise further specific tests if I feel that we are missing any key information about your reproductive health. We will also discuss diet, lifestyle, nutrition and other factors specific to you which may affect fertility.
For my female clients, I will discuss the advantages and methods of using basal body temperature (BBT) charting in order for both of us to understand your menstrual cycle better. This in turn will help us to understand the timing of ovulation and will therefore give more insight into the best time to conceive. I will then regularly review your BBT charts as we continue throughout treatment.
For all clients, where appropriate, I will also be providing hand reflexology homework for you to continue with yourself in between our sessions.
