Does reflexology really help with conceiving??
Actually more and more fertility programs are using reflexology in their approach. The logic is really very simple. When we experience the fight or flight reaction certain parts of our system are ramped up like blood to the heart and lungs. Others are shut down like the reproductive system. When faced with a threat real or perceived reproduction is a low priority.
Reflexology helps lower cortisol which is a primary stress hormone. Lowering cortisol allows the body to return to a state of equilibrium. Under today's stresses interrupting ongoing stress is very important.
It hard to say if it will work for you but it is worth a try. The fad now is to take a cruise for fertility. Reflexology is being included in many of these cruises. Nice way to conceive.
