Stress management

Stress management

Here at TFP we fully appreciate how stressful and daunting your fertility journey can be. That’s why we have incorporated stress management techniques into our services to elevate the additional tension that fertility treatment can add to everyday life.

We are delighted to be working with The Natural Fertility Clinic based in Wokingham to be able to offer non-medical, holistic therapy treatments.


Acupuncture is a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine, using fine needles at specific sites in the body for therapeutic or preventative purposes. At TFP Thames Valley Fertility we work with Karolina from The Natural Fertility Clinic who has trained and specialised in traditional Chinese medicine & the Five Element styles of acupuncture.

The process of using the needles to stimulate sensory nerves under the skin and the muscles of the body focuses on rebalancing the body’s flow of energy. This form of holistic treatment promotes a sense of wellbeing and reduction is specific symptoms targeted. Focusing specifically on the benefits this treatment may have for fertility issues, its aim is to help:

  • Regulate fertility hormones

  • Increase blood flow to reproductive organs

  • Reduce the effect of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)

We offer various acupuncture treatment options:

  1. Pre treatment package – This longer session (ideally over 2 months) before starting your IVF treatment cycle aims to promote and improve fertility in preparation for your upcoming treatment.

  2. Pre & post embryo transfer package – These sessions focus on your specific cycle, the embryo(s) that you have and preparation for your transfer and optimal receptivity.

  3. Pay as you go – Independent of where you are on your fertility journey you may wish to book for this procedure as and when you wish.


Reflexology is a treatment derived from the belief that different points on the feet and hands correspond with specific organs and can be used to target them. Here at TFP Thames Valley Fertility we work with Katy & Verity from The Natural Fertility Clinic who have both trained in reflexology & fertility/abdominal massage.

The process of stimulating these reflex points by applying gentle pressure focuses on obtaining a deep relaxation and stimulation of the body’s own healing processes. This form of holistic treatment targets the immune system and promotes a sense of wellbeing.

We offer reflexology sessions at any stage of your fertility journey, so you may wish to book in for this treatment as and when you wish.
