Hi I have been recommended to try fertility reflexology. I'm wondering if anyone has tried it and thinks it's worth giving it a go?

Thanks it would be great to have the money to get it done all the time. It's just a bad time after Christmas and I'm also saving to buy a house. I need to win the lotto

I have and it lush. Def feels like it helping and good and relaxing regardless. Worth a try I reck ☺️xx

Thanks your right it would be worth a try I'd say

I have tried acupuncture and reflexology and I definitely feel I relaxed more with reflexology. But I guess it’s personal preference. Not sure which had better effect on cycle though to be honest but good luck xx

I would say the reflexology would be more relaxing. You get told to try so many things it's hard to get your head around

I’m currently down-regging for an IVF and use acupuncture, reflexology and Reiki each month. I’ve only used acupuncture for my past cycles; the reflexology and/or reiki definitely help to make me less stressed. I’ve found that I’m the most ‘blissed out’ after Reiki. I seem to go into a really deep meditation which is more rejeuvenating than an 8hr sleep! Good luck xx

I've had reiki twice and it had an amazing effect on me both times i felt like a new person mentally i would highly recommend

I had it after failed ivf to try and de stress and relax before my next cycle and I fell pregnant naturally just before down regging. At 41 and after trying for over 10 years I can’t help but think it helped. X

Oh that sounds good definitely worth a try even if it is just for relaxation purposes

I had it for a few months pre-IVF, its really relaxing & helped painful periods. The only put off for me was when I was told that you can have up to 6 sessions during IVF, which for me was too much financially.

I know the cost of each session adds up and it's only after Christmas

I enjoyed it so much that I actually did my Reiki 1 course which means that I can now treat myself, husband (and dog!). It wasn’t expensive and now I can treat myself whenever I feel the need, although it’s particularly useful pre/post treatment 👍🏻

I still go and see my Reiki lady once a month as she helps me relax a lot deeper than I can do alone, plus she has an uncanny habit of picking up on things that I’d been ignoring!
