Reflexology & IVF Treatment
I have been approached by a lady that has just started a course IVF treatment. She has been recommended reflexology by her consultant to help her relax.
As the first 12 weeks of pregnancy is a total contra indication, I will not be treating her once the fertilised eggs have been implanted just in case of a successful pregnancy. However, I was wondering if anyone could give me some advise on the treatment I should give her. I was thinking of a general treatment working very gently around the reproductive areas. Or should I avoid the reproductive area? It would be great to hear from someone with experience of treating ladies going through IVF. Thanks!
I've just completed the first part of an interesting course in Maternity Reflexology with Mauricio Kruchik. His course comes in 2 parts, the first is pregnancy and birth based and the second is infertility, post natal care and baby reflexology.
Anyway, to get to the point, his website www.maternityreflexology.net has a great forum with loads of information about exactly this kind of question. There are a lots of midwives who have completed this course as well as complementary therapists so there is lots of very good advice.
I would also say that if your interested in this area of reflexology you will find the website very interesting generally.
Hope this helps.
