At The Natural Fertility Clinic, we understand that getting pregnant can be both extremely stressful and expensive, with private medicine only being available to those that have the means to afford it. With potentially 1 in 4 couples experiencing difficulties in conceiving, reflexology can work in a number of ways to enhance fertility. Reflexology is proven to reduce stress and anxiety, it may also help with many of the medical conditions associated with sub fertility such as endometriosis, PCOS, fibroids and unexplained infertility.
Our team of reflexologists have a wealth of experience treating individuals and couples with fertility issues. They use a number of methods such as reflexology, vertical reflexology, reiki, emotional Freedom Technique and chakra balancing to provide the best outcome for their patients.
The clinic’s founders Verity and Katy are both trained reflexologists and have an in-depth understanding of many conditions relating to infertility. Verity experienced secondary infertility and recurrent miscarriages after suffering from a pituitary disorder, and Katy was diagnosed with endometriosis, PCOS and an under active thyroid. Both have overcome their struggles successfully through the help of complementary therapies and changes to diet and lifestyle.
Infertility can be a very isolating having someone treat you that understands both the emotional and physically challenges can be of great support.
Whilst fertility reflexology can never claim to cure any particular condition, it works by balancing all the of body systems particularly the endocrine system. Balance in a woman’s or man’s emotional and physical well-being is extremely important in the attempt to conceive. By encouraging the body to work more efficiently it can create a healthier environment for possible pregnancy to occur.

Whilst not being medically trained, we have a wealth of knowledge and passion on both infertility and its impact. Whether you are seeking information on the correct times to attempt conception or on what foods and supplements which may boost your chances, we have a dedicated team waiting to help you.

What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a science which deals with the principle that there are reflexes in the feet relative to each and every organ and all parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health problems in a natural way.
Trained reflexologists use a technique of applying gentle pressure to reflex areas on the hands and feet to bring about a state of deep relaxation and to stimulate the body’s own healing processes. It’s a natural therapy that can help boost the immune system and create a stronger body and calmer mind. It is widely acknowledged that 75% of all illness is linked to stress of some kind and this is what the reflexologist will seek to target. During a treatment, over 7000 nerves ending in the feet are worked to help create the necessary sense of balance and wellbeing. Reflexology works by treating the whole person as well as the symptoms presented.
There have been numerous research studies looking into reflexology and its effectiveness for treating a wide range of medical conditions. Generally speaking the results are very positive and show that reflexology can help on both the physical as well as the emotional level.
