Preparing for pregnancy
When you are planning to conceive a baby naturally it is essential to increase your chances of conception and prepare your body before pregnancy.
The most important developments take place in the early weeks and so to ensure your body is in its best optimum condition to carry a baby by eliminating as many toxins from the body as possible.
A preconceptual programme of 3-4 months having regular sessions weekly, fortnightly or monthly can be very beneficial.

They also looked at a variety of conditions, and how they responded to reflexology, including male fertility issues and responses to IVF/ICSI, with positive results.
I had a course of treatment with Karen earlier in the year, to help me relax more and see if it could aid with fertility issues: after the first session, I was hooked and slept better than I have in a long time!
The treatments are valuable not least because they feel great and Karen is such a calming and relaxing person to have around, but also the time that it gives you to step away from often hectic lives and indulge in some 'me' time. I felt 100% confident in Karen's abilities and she is a very easy person to get along with - it often felt like an old friend was popping over for a chat (with the added bonus of receiving some wonderful reflexology as well of course!).
She was also happy to answer my questions as we went along and I really liked her approach in general. The other thing that was fantastic, is that Karen travelled to my house: this meant no having to drive home after I was feeling a mix of both very relaxed and really quite energised at the same time!

I came to Karen at a time in my life that was incredibly stressful and I was in a downhill spiral. Work and home life were both demanding my attention and on top of this my husband and I were unsuccessfully trying to start a family and going through fertility tests. The stress wasn't helping. A friend suggested I try reflexology. Not only did the reflexology massively help reduce my stress levels but it provided me with some very much needed "me time". The hour I spent at reflexology in Karen's relaxing clinic, with no mobile phone or blackberry or any other person demanding my attention became my sanctuary. In addition Karen's supportive nature and being an ear I could talk to has been invaluable. After treatments I could really notice the difference in my ability to cope with life, I slept restfully and generally felt better in myself. It has certainly helped me get through the tough times. I recommend Karen without any reservation.
