Francesca contacted Holistic Healing Hands with a view to booking a Fertility Reflexology session. At the time she was trying for a family and she had carried out some research which suggested Reflexology could be beneficial.
A thorough consultation was carried out with Francesca looking at her expectations from the session or sessions, past medical history, current state of health, symptoms, physical, mental and emotional well-being, stress levels, sleep patterns, diet and fitness levels. A treatment plan was devised with Francesca’s agreement and an initial Fertility Reflexology session was performed. Francesca responded positively to that session and further sessions were booked.
After a short period of time Francesca received the fantastic news that she was expecting and continued to receive regular Fertility and Maternity Reflexology sessions. Sadly that pregnancy ended but Francesca continued to receive regular reflexology sessions and thankfully fell pregnant after just 3 months. Francesca and I both feel that the regular Fertility and Maternity Reflexology sessions not only helped her deal with the mental and emotional effects of the miscarriage but also helped her body prepare for her second pregnancy and supported the development of her happy and healthy baby, Zac.
Francesca continued receiving regular Reflexology sessions after conceiving, miscarrying and conceiving again as she experienced so many benefits, especially dealing with the ending of her first pregnancy! It was a pleasure to work with Francesca, to be a small part of her emotional and sometimes extremely difficult journey and observe the positive outcomes to the regular Reflexology sessions. To see such a healthy and content baby doing so well and to see Francesca finally welcoming him into this world is priceless.

“I’ve been going to Jo for reflexology for 18 months. I initially went for fertility reflexology which was wonderful. Jo quickly identified I didn’t have any real medical problems conceiving.. maybe a bit stressed. She worked with me for 4 months until I became pregnant. Sadly I miscarried in the September but Jo quickly helped heal my body and mind and I fell pregnant again in the March.. 3 months after trying. All through my pregnancy Jo treated me and I had a very easy pregnancy.. no issues other that heart burn and swollen feet which again Jo helped me manage. Zac was born on Christmas day, a week late which I believe is because he was so comfortable. I was induced because of high blood pressure. This happened only the week I didn’t see Jo. Zac is a calm, content baby and I know this is due to how calm and content I was throughout my pregnancy. Jo is a wonderful reflexology professional. She has a unique manner which makes you instantly relax, and switch off. She is informative and what she’s doing and on more than one occasion picked up on niggles I was barely aware of, or strains on joints I’d forgotten I did. Her reply is always.. “I’ve worked on it for you”. I have recommended Jo to so many people, and fertility and maternity reflexology to others because of my incredibly positive experience. If you visit Jo, you won’t regret it and will return. I can’t wait for my next session already. The best money I’ve spent. “
