Complementary Therapies and Fertility

March 23, 2020

 

Studies have shown that complementary therapies such as hypnotherapy, reflexology and massage can be helpful for boosting fertility, and many fertility clinics are now offering complementary therapies to help increase the success rates of fertility treatments such as IVF.

 

Hypnotherapy uses a naturally occurring, altered state of consciousness, where the client is in a state of heightened inner focus and concentration, to help gain control over unwanted behaviours or to cope better with anxiety. Hypnotherapy can be used to reprogram the subconscious mind through suggestions, and unwanted, unhelpful behaviours, such as smoking and drinking alcohol, can be changed or removed for positive improvements to your fertility and chances of becoming pregnant.

 

High stress levels can suppress essential reproductive hormones and consequently negatively affect sperm and egg quality, reducing the chances of a successful and healthy pregnancy. Stressors, whether they are conscious or unconscious, can be treated with hypnotherapy, and self-hypnosis can be taught to help replace high levels of stress with deeper levels of physical relaxation.

 

Women have been reporting the benefits of reflexology on their fertility for years, and we are starting to get more evidence based research confirming what many people already believed.  Barbara Scott is a reflexologist specialising in reflexology for fertility, she has spent many years researching and creating a programme for her fertility clients (male and female).  In her book (Reflexology for Fertility) she details how you can assess your clients feet and offers a protocol for treating throughout the monthly cycle and also through the process of fertility treatments.
