What happens in a Treatment?
Prior to your first appointment a detailed consultation form will be emailed to you. There are lots of questions including both physical and emotional symptoms. The holistic approach is essential to gain a greater understanding of both your mind and body. We work together at getting the two to communicate.
Many of our clients have been to their GPs, had various tests, and still have no definitive diagnosis; this is why we like to ask more questions and hear what you actually have to say. Please bring any blood tests and scan results with you on your first appointment as these are always helpful to review.
You may be coming for fertility issues, but we still need to know about your gut, as both ascending and descending colon are either side of the womb and the rectum is directly behind! A healthy gut is essential for fertility health. Digestion is key.
Your 1st treatment will be gentle and relatively deep massage – we need to gauge your body’s response. Some will leave the table feeling very relaxed and some a little emotional, but both are positive signs.
Please wear comfy clothes 🙂
Generally a colon massage can be performed at any time, however a womb massage has some restrictions:
Just before or during a bleed
If you have a coil fitted
If you are in your first trimester of pregnancy
Any recent abdominal surgery
If you have an infection or high temperature
“From the very first phone call, my experience with The Natural Fertility Clinic has been excellent. Katy was so warm and friendly and put me totally at ease from the moment I met her. Her in-depth knowledge of fertility challenges, mixed with her own experience means that she offers practical advice as well as effective therapy treatments that really work. After just 2 months of receiving reflexology, fertility massage and changing my diet as advised by Katy I was pregnant for the first time – having been trying for over 15 months. I highly recommend Katy & The Natural Fertility Clinic – they are fantastic”. – Kirsty, Warfield.
” I have been seeing Katy once a week for an hours fertility massage leading up to my frozen embryo transfer. I hadn’t heard much about fertility massage until I came across The Natural Fertility Clinic website. Very intrigued about it, I spoke to Katy over the phone where we had a chat about the cycle I was about to have and the benefits of massage and Katy managed to book me in for the following week. My first session was so interesting. Katy told me a lot about my digestive system and gave me some great advice on certain probiotics to take. The massage itself was so relaxing and as the weeks went on I found myself falling asleep half way through.
As you know with IVF you must have a good thick womb lining ready for implantation. The nurse at the IVF clinic told me that I had a really good thick lining and still a way to go before transfer and I truly believe that these massages are helping with increasing blood flow. I would recommend anyone going through IVF to give this a try. It’s very relaxing and you learn a lot about your own body as you go along. Thank you Katy for being so lovely and helping me relax at this very stressful time!” Jo, Bracknell
“Morning Katy, as well as the better sleeping . I think you may have sorted my tummy!. From being constipated every day for a year to going normally twice every day since my treatment is something I would never have expected . I am so so grateful “. Lisa, Wokingham.
“I have been working closely with Katy and Verity throughout our fertility journey over a 16 month period, making changes here and there to my system through reflexology, taking supplements and diet. Earlier in the Summer, I booked an appointment with Katy for a Fertility Abdominal Massage.
Katy’s clinic is lovely. Cosy and quiet and tucked away in a way that really makes you feel like you are stepping away from your day to day chaos. We talked at length about all of the things I had tried already and where we were with regards to tests and consultant visits.
The treatment itself was incredibly relaxing! Katy is a very confident and caring practitioner who really knows and cares about her patients and the treatments they receive. I left the session wishing I could stay for another hour, but alas, my time was up.
The purpose of this testimonial is really to let you know that exactly one week later I ovulated and fell pregnant that very same cycle! I am now 16 weeks pregnant with our first, long awaited baby. We are, as you can imagine – elated!
There were undoubtedly a number of elements to why it happened when it did. But I truly believe that Katy’s treatment was certainly a part of that magic combination! Thank you Katy, and also to Verity for all the help and support you have provided”.(Keri, Wokigham)
“Katy made me and my partner feel comfortable and relaxed from the very start. I felt like she really understood what I had been going through, and all the stress and struggles having trouble with conceiving can bring. She was very knowledgeable – I learnt far more from Katy that I had from any doctor I had seen in the previous 2 years! The fertility massage was incredibly relaxing and Katy explained everything behind what she was doing and the reasons for doing each different technique. Incredibly after 2 treatments with Katy I fell pregnant after trying for 2 years! We cannot thank her enough for all she has done for us. Would highly recommend Katy to anybody ” ( Jo, Hook)
