Reflexology ??


Hi ladies , hope your all doing as well as you can be ! Just a quick question to see if any of you have any opinions of reflexology ? Has anybody had it while going through ivf ? I am getting ready for our 2nd round of ivf in march and want to see whats best to try and help this round work for us ! Any advice/ opinions would be hugely appreciated x

Yes I have done lots of Reflexology. The lady I go to is a bit hippy and really makes me laugh & feel good about myself. I love the way I feel a bit "stoned" when I leave.

I have sadly been going for nearly 3 years now & have had 5 x failed rounds of IVF so I can't say if it has helped. But it did make me feel better.

Just make sure you like the person doing and feel you can "float away".

Lots of luck


I have been having reflexology for the last 12 months, I suffered with anxiety and panic attacks and a bad work situation. Ttc for 3 years and convinced stress was a major factor.

I love my sessions, much more relaxing than acupuncture in my opinion. I started weekly for a few months then dropped it to fortnightly.

I really believe it's reduced my stress and she also councils a bit in the sessions.

She provided me with a letter for work too which explained in depth the link between stress reactions and anxiety response etc which my occ health could not ignore.

I had my first cycle recently and got the bfp today from 1 embryo!

If it works or if it's placebo I don't care, I think it helped.

If you find a really good 1 they will help with all sorts including diet and supplements. Mine specialises in sub fertility and I can't praise her enough x
