Fertility & Maternity Treatments
How can Reflexology and Homeopathy help me to conceive?

Reflexology and Homeopathy can help create the best possible environment for you to conceive simply and naturally (also see: www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-20980/Is-reflexology-new-cure-infertility.html).

These therapies, alone or together also provide the space to explore this exciting journey, either for the first or subsequent time.

Reflexology and specially chosen visualisations enable you to relax deeply on all levels. When the body is relaxed, the mind stills and healing, if necessary, can begin.

I also have considerable experience in assisting women and their partners, who are struggling to conceive. During the initial consultation, there is plenty of space to you to talk freely. From here, we choose a combination of methods that will best support you emotionally and physically through this testing time.

I am grateful to have worked with an increasing number of women who have subsequently conceived naturally. I am equally proud to have supported clients undergoing fertility treatment - sometimes through the despair of failed IUI/IVF treatments and sometimes with wonderful, unexpected results.

I am fully aware that many couples choose to discuss their situation with very few family members and friends. I aim to provide a safe, caring space where the stresses and pressures of conceiving (naturally or through medical treatment) can be lightened.

Please feel free to contact me for a free telephone consultation in the strictest confidence.

How can Reflexology and Homeopathy help me during pregnancy?

Homeopathy is subtle, non toxic and safe to use during pregnancy. It may be able to help you with a wide range of ailments, from morning sickness and heartburn, to varicose veins and headaches.

Regular reflexology treatments have been proven by Obstetrician Gowri Motha to be:

  • Safe during pregnancy
  • Can help with minor ailments during pregnancy
  • Improved labour outcomes: reduced labour time; less intervention
  • Normalised hypertension, avoiding hospital stays
  • Increased sense of well-being
  • Improved sleep
  • Reduction in foot/ankle swelling
  • Mother feels supported mentally, emotionally and physically

  • How can Reflexology and Homeopathy help me to prepare for birth and in labour?

    Regular reflexology treatments allow the mother to be well prepared for birth by having the space and time to explore her attitudes, hopes and fears for labour in a safe, encouraging environment.

    Reflexology is fast becoming known for helping women avoid birth inductions with a 'priming' technique, available after 40 weeks gestation. It can also be used to encourage breech babies to turn.

    I have had much experience in the use of Homeopathic remedies for stimulating labour, encouraging strong contractions and coping with emotional stresses during actual labour.

    How can Reflexology and Homeopathy help me during the post natal period?

    Homeopathic remedies are incredibly helpful during the post natal period, in healing scars, traumas, bruising and stitches, establishing milk production and balancing hormones, to avoid the 'baby blues'. Homeopathy can help to promote a joyful and peaceful post natal period, despite the fact that your emotions and whole life may have just turned upside down!

    Reflexology can also be extremely beneficial in establishing healing, milk production and providing some much needed space to be, balance and refresh.

    Reflexology Induction Treatments

    Rachael has had considerable experience in 'Reflexology induction' treatments, prior to labour.

    Using a combination of Reflexology and Homeopathy, this treatment can be very effective in helping to start labour and avoid medical induction. (Although obviously there are no guarantees!).

    First there is a chance to talk at length about the upcoming birth and time to explore any fears and anxieties. This is followed by a deeply relaxing treatment. Specific points on the feet are stimulated to gently encourage labour to start, but only when the time is right. After the treatment you will be prescribed appropriate homeopathic remedies on a totally individualised basis, which will calm and support you in your final days of pregnancy as well as (hopefully!) stimulate the onset of labour.

    The aim of this treatment is to clear the path for you and your baby's birth journey and most importantly, empower you that your body is fully capable of going into labour naturally.

    This treatment is designed to be a one off treatment and can be taken from 40 weeks.
