Fertility IssuesIf you are experiencing issues with your (or your partner’s) fertility, it can be an extremely sensitive subject and generates a multitude of emotions. Reflexology does not claim to cure infertility and Gabby Lamplugh would warn clients to avoid any complementary therapist which claims that they can cure fertility issues.
However, reflexology is incredibly calming and relaxing and may help balance the hormones that are fundamental to the optimum functioning of the reproductive system. Reflexology may be particularly beneficial for women suffering from endometriosis and PCOS for example.
Gabby Lamplugh has been trained in reflexology and specific techniques for enhancing fertility and maternity care by David Wayte - a leading reflexologist with many years experience and success in helping couples overcome infertility, who was also filmed for the BBC3 series 'Make Me A Baby'.
Reflexology may help to:
- Balance hormone levels
- Regulate the menstrual cycle
- Boost blood circulation
- The whole body to relax
- Stimulate endorphin release - the feel good hormone
- Create a balanced environment for conception to take place

Conceiving a child takes both the male and female partners and in nearly 30% of cases the cause is attributed to the female, 30% to the male, 30% to both and 10% unexplained. Gabby Lamplugh reflexology usually recommends treatments for both partners.
The Association of Reflexologists (AOR) guidelines on fertility state that drugs, such as clomiphene, buserelin, puregon etc, which are used to control the hormone cycle and then stimulate ovulation, do not appear to be affected by reflexology and there is no reason why a person should not have reflexology at the same time.
