Reflexology for fertility has become of more and more interest to people exploring their options in trying to conceive. As reflexologists I am sure that we have all experienced an increase in clients seeking help in this area.
However it can be a minefield of when to treat, what to treat, how to treat, and what realistic sensible advice can be given to clients. We all want to provide as much support and help as possible during what we know can be a difficult and potentially distressing time for our clients.
In addition there is also the thorny issue of working during IVF and IUI cycles – Is it safe? What should I do? How can I help? What is the process? And how can I work alongside the drugs that will be taken?
My course provides a wealth of information to enable you, as a practitioner, to be able to do just that. The techniques for reproductive reflexology have been developed over many years, and have proved to be effective and beneficial in improving outcomes, alleviating symptoms, and helping couples to improve their fertility.
The Reproflexology™ course is separated into two parts, running over two sets of two days with some case study work to do in between.
Part 1 of the course covers understanding the basic causes of fertility difficulties in both men and women, identifying ovulation, medical tests undertaken by clients, and how to work with fertility and sub fertility. This must by completed before embarking on the second weekend.
Part 2 focuses entirely on working with medicated cycles, IUI and IVF.
On the successful conclusion of the course all students will receive at Certificate in Reproflexology© which will count towards their Continuing Professional Development.

Jenni Grant – a very experienced teacher of maternity reflexology and a trained midwife writes:
Thank you Barbara for a tremendous course and cram packed with information. As a maternity reflexologist my knowledge and experience of pregnancy reflexology is fairly comprehensive but ever increasing and developing. However your fertility and reflexology techniques and programmes planned around the treatment cycles have given me much more confidence in this area which was previously regarded with fear and over caution.
I will be pleased to recommend your course to my students to spread the knowledge that with appropriate fertility training with Reproflexology™ this important and beneficial work will reach more and more potential parents. This will promote their fertility and ease their transition at a very important but stressful time in their lives as well as to improve the fertility rates and successful outcomes with such a natural and holistic approach complementary to allopathic medicine.
Training will take place at our beautiful training academy based in Melbourne, Derbyshire, DE73 8FE. Information on accommodation and travel will be sent upon booking completion.
