Continuing on with my blog series on common aliments that Massage or Reflexology can help with is I for Infertility.
This is a condition that can affect both men and women and research has shown that it can affect 1 in 6 couples. Infertility can be caused by a number of different issues and stress is a big factor in this.
In a Reflexology session, the reflexologist will start off with a general treatment to help restore balance and then focus on the Reproductive and Endocrine systems.
In females this is the ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus reflexes and in males it is the testes and prostate gland reflexes. These reflexes can be found below the ankle bones on the side of each foot inside and outside.
The Pituitary, Thyroid and Adrenal gland reflexes are also worked on in this treatment. These glands control the hormones in the body and will help release any blockages in the body.
Like any treatment it is recommended that you get 4-6 reflexology sessions to allow the body to respond to the treatments.
