Infertility is one of those worries that men and women alike have, when they feel like they’re ready for children but for some reason it’s just not happening. It’s stressful, and can be very heartbreaking. But, there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel, and there are methods available to help boost fertility that are highly effective, and could lift the clouds over why it’s just not working for you.
At the Norfolk Clinic, we are proud of our wide variety of treatments that can help boost fertility. Take for example, Acupuncture. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into different parts of the body, depending on the condition. Acupuncture can can increase fertility by reducing stress, increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs and balancing the endocrine system; Your endocrine system includes all the glands in your body that make hormones. Our Acupuncturist Hannah will advise on the best time to start your fertility treatment.
Osteopathic Treatment for fertility
Many women don’t realise that Osteopathy can be an effective treatment for infertility. Osteopathic treatment for infertility helps improve function of the musculoskeletal, circulatory, nervous and hormonal systems, as well as the release of emotional stress. The main causes for infertility are problems connected to the pelvic region, hormonal imbalances, emotional stress and other associated ailments. Faulty body mechanics, incorrect body posture or misalignment of the organs will lead to abnormal blood flow and nerve function, which are vital for optimal reproductive system function (Osteopathy for Life)
Osteopaths work holistically to help your body find good structural balance and to allow it to function at its best.
Indirect treatment can also help, and hypnotherapy to quit any habits, such as smoking, could leave you feeling healthier, and could remove the barriers that have been stopping you from conceiving. Believe it or not, but drinking alcohol and smoking could definitely be a contributing factor to infertility, and even stress can get in the way of fertility issues. This can also be managed with hypnotherapy, and allow you to relax.
As we have mentioned, stress and anxiety can be what’s stopping you from conceiving. This is why counselling can be useful to those who are infertile. The Norfolk Clinic offers counselling one-on-one to help tackle these mental health issues. People don’t take into account that the focus on your mental health could be the problem, so you can talk to our counsellor at the clinic, and rest a little easier with a weight lifted from your shoulders; hopefully then, you will have some good news to tell people!
Being a holistic treatment, it is based on the principle of specifically targeting areas and point of the hand, feet and other part of the body. When pressure is applied to these specific areas, it can stimulate movement, relieve pain and help to restore balance to the whole body. In the last 20 years the treatment has seen a massive spike in popularity and is now regularly used as a treatment for a number of conditions and can be used individually as a treatment or in conjunction with other medical treatments or medications.
Undertaking in a reflexology session can have a range of great benefits, the whole purpose of the session is to help alleviate any stress and tension you may be suffering from and to help give your body more natural balance. In order to address fertility health, a reflexology therapist will work through the reflexology points specific to the client’s area(s) of health concern. The treatment room provides a womb-like environment which absorbs the strain and tension of control which trying to get pregnant often brings.
