Reflexology and acupuncture are increasingly being used alongside IVF and IUI treatment, with many patients reporting that they feel less stressed and more in control during treatment. Support is available before, during and after the IVF process at many of our clinics.
Acupuncture works by rebalancing the body’s flow of energy and, by inserting fine needles at specific points, the acupuncturist can stimulate the body’s own healing response.

Recent studies have also shown that acupuncture treatments before and after embryo transfer could significantly increase implantation rates.
Reflexology is a relaxing treatment that applies gentle massage pressure to specific areas like hands and feet, which are thought to reflect other zones of the body. By applying pressure to these areas, reflexology is designed to affect a change in the corresponding area, stimulating energy and alleviating stress.
Many fertility patients find complementary therapies like reflexology beneficial to their health and wellbeing during treatment.
If you wish to try reflexology alongside your fertility treatment, please contact your local clinic.
