What is reflexology?
When pressure is applied to the reflex points it is thought to stimulate the movement of energy and so help restore homeostasis (balance) in the whole body.
Reflexology works on an individual basis and may alleviate and improve symptoms such as everyday stress and tension.
Reflexology can run alongside but should never replace conventional medicine.
A Reflexologist does not diagnose or give medical advice.
You will be asked to remove footwear and socks before the practitioner begins the precise Reflexology movements. The particular types of movements involved require the application of an appropriate amount of pressure using the thumb and fingers.

How can Reflexology help support you through your conception journey?
Reflexology can help support you both physically and emotionally if you are trying to conceive. It can provide you with a safe place to take time out, relax and reduce stress. This in itself can be beneficial for conception.
According to the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE)
- Around 1 in 7 couples in the UK seek advice about difficulties in getting pregnant. If you and your partner have been trying to get pregnant for more than 12 months, you should both be offered investigative tests.
