Conceive Naturally & Consciously
Let’s talk about Fertility. Maybe you are doing all the “right things” and find it isn’t happening as easily as you thought, or you are simply called to be in touch with a more mindful and holistic approach for your fertility journey.
Fertility is so much more than the physical act of making a baby. It takes an average of 74 days or 2-3 months for sperm to grow and mature. Ova can take anywhere from 90-150 days to reach final maturation. That means that 3-6 months of care and planning can greatly improve the quality of these precious resources. Taking the time to prepare on all levels for pregnancy with conscious awareness is sometimes called conscious conception.
There are many different causes for infertility or sub-fertility, such as problems which are linked to stress/anxiety or hormonal imbalances (e.g. Endometriosis, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, irregular or no menstrual cycle etc). The ability to conceive can also be dependent on many other factors. Modern-day life can have a significant impact on health and therefore on fertility too. It can be directly correlated to the foods you eat, and your lifestyle, even occupation, which can affect both you and your partner. For couples wanting to give their children the absolute best start in life, the preparation will begin before conception. It is all about getting your bodies ready. It is also about producing the highest quality product – the sperm – to begin this new life. A woman is born with her full quota of ova, or eggs, so the validity of these is genetic. The man’s sperm is produced constantly and is more vulnerable to toxins, drugs, and environmental pollutants. This is why the male’s participation in the preparation is equally as important as the woman’s preparation.
Whether you are trying for a baby naturally or with assisted fertility I can support you and improve your chances every step of the way, using the latest techniques with proven, evidence-based therapies which can help you.
Using a nourishing blend of combined modalities, which brings harmony and balance to the reproductive, digestive & sacral areas, supporting your fertility journey. It works by relieving congestion and circulation blockages in the soft tissues that support the womb, the abdomen and the sacrum, improving the flow of blood to the uterus, ovaries and Fallopian tubes, lymph and nerve impulses to the organs. Womb massage aligns the position of your uterus and increases circulation to the entire reproductive system, which improves uterine lining and egg quality and balances hormones. It may also release emotional and energetic congestion from the abdomen. On an emotional and spiritual level, Womb Massage supports you to connect more deeply with your feminine centre, preparing you for conscious conception. Sessions can also benefit IUI and IVF outcomes.
The result of all this is increased chances of conceiving a baby.

What To Expect In Your Session
Upon booking your 90-minute consultation, you will be asked to complete & submit a comprehensive consultation form prior to your appointment. We will discuss your fertility journey, and any emotional aspects that may arise, which will then be followed by a full fertility massage treatment. Treatments start with a lumbar, sacral and gluteal massage, allowing you time to relax and become accustomed to my energy and touch before the abdominal massage. When massaging your abdomen, you will be receiving touch from your pubic bone up to your rib-cage and will include a beautiful blend of essential oils, various massage techniques, pulsing, rebozo and guided visualisation. You will be nurtured, nourished and held in a safe place to allow you to release deep-seated emotions that may be blocking your energy.

FERTILITY REFLEXOLOGY ~ REPROFLEXOLOGY™
I have trained in Reproflexology™ with Barbara Scott, acknowledged as one of the UK’s leading experts in working with couples undergoing assisted fertility treatment, as well as taken additional Fertility reflexology training with Louise Keats and Teresa Heath. Fertility reflexology can be used as a stand-alone treatment to enhance your natural fertility or with fully medicated cycles of IUI, IVF, ICSI as well as with donor eggs.
Reproflexology™ uses protocols in the course of working with clients whether supporting your natural fertility or assisted fertility journey that ensures the right areas of the foot correlating with the parts of the body are stimulated or sedated, thereby sending the right messages to the relevant body part. The aim is to correct any hormonal imbalances, improve physical conditions, manage stress levels, and correct any cycle irregularities. Ideally working with both partners, helping you both to understand your own individual fertility indicators; by removing some of the strain it enables you to enjoy the process of ‘baby-making’ again.
Although men are often reluctant to try reflexology, by engaging with me and taking advantage of the techniques that Reproflexology™ can offer to improve your sperm health and production, you are increasing the chances of a healthy pregnancy. Male infertility can range from hormonal imbalances to physical issues.
Treatments involve techniques using the Reproductive reflexes on the feet. Initially, treatment for the female would entail weekly sessions working through one entire menstrual phase, however, if there are irregularities in your cycle, such as clotting or an irregular cycle, then weekly treatments would need to continue until the cycle is balanced. This will be discussed at your consultation. Initial treatment during pre-conceptual care for the male would involve treating on a weekly basis and this would continue for 8 weeks; any general conditions in order to maintain good levels of health would also be taken into account. I would then ask for the sperm to be retested. Having regular fertility reflexology directs the flow of vital energy to where it is needed by balancing and restoring health and reducing the impact of stress. The whole person is treated and not the specific conditions.
Fertility Reflexology can assist couples who would like support with:
- Natural conception.
- Assisted conception – IUI, IVF & ICSI cycles.
- Menstrual cycle/hormonal imbalances
- Endometriosis, Fibroids, PCOS.
- Reduced PMS & PMT symptoms.
- Sperm quality and quantity.
- Stress-related problems.
- General health and wellbeing.
All parts of our body serve a role in keeping us healthy, providing fuel for all of our body’s systems and organs to work at full capacity. Without a full tank, your body might not be able to perfectly perform in the way that the various components were meant to, and our emotional or mental states may experience depression or feel overwhelmed. For many couples, fertility, pregnancy and birth are a relatively straight forward process but for some starting, a family can be a very frustrating and emotionally painful time. What should have been a natural event turns into the main focus of stress in their lives; this stress in itself can be a huge block to becoming pregnant.
Energy work, such as Reiki, Crystal healing and Chakra balancing can help towards removing the emotional, psychological, physical or energetic blockages and work towards producing the positive result desired. We need to also understand when seeking any energy modality for healing, is that it took years or even decades to create the energy dynamic that is occurring in your body to support or obstruct your health and pregnancy goals. Restoring wellness using energy healing is a process.
When working with couples having fertility issues, we explore where the energy is blocked or out of balance and begin to restore those areas. Often, the energy in and around the reproductive systems is very low, particularly if the woman has old emotional wounds stored in this area.
When a woman is feeling empowered to manifest a family and hits a brick wall in trying to achieve this, the repeated cycle of falling to not conceive each month can cause a negative impact. The negativity permeates into her emotional and energetic fields, creating more blocks. Energy healing will nurture her into a place of knowing that all will work out for the best and that all parts of her being are working toward creating the highest good for all. Leaving her feeling empowered. Saying yes to our uterus is key in promoting a loving environment for conceiving our babies.
Energy healing can be used throughout a woman’s cycle to support the growth of follicles and recruitment of healthy eggs, the fertilisation of eggs and assisting the embryo to implant in the uterine lining, providing emotional and mental balance, helping you to align with the process of fertility in a more positive way. Energy healing can also be used during the challenging 2-week wait, throughout all forms of assisted conception procedures or post failed assisted conception procedures or after miscarriage.
The process of receiving healing energy to restore the energy field should begin as soon as possible when you are considering conception by any means. This gives your energy field time to be cleared, repaired and strengthened for your new cycle to begin. During the healing process, you will be given access to additional tools to work on a positive desire to carry a child in your womb and acknowledge that you are fully open to becoming pregnant, such as positive guided meditations. This will include healing the sacral chakra.
Healing is offered to both couples, as energies need to be balanced equally.
3 sessions each spread out over a 2 week period. Each healing session is a bespoke treatment.
Please book a wellbeing review which will including a full therapy session: the well-being review will gather details of your general and reproductive health, plus lifestyle choices, to help build up a bigger picture to tailor your care plan.
After your session, you will receive access to a wellbeing self-care pack, which includes:
- Guide to improving your fertility naturally
