Fertile Body Method

The Fertile Body Method is a holistic mind body approach to health and fertility. Mind-body medicine recognizes that our bodies and minds are not separate entities and are in constant communication. Our minds have an effect on our bodies, and our bodies have an effect on our minds.

How can the Fertile Body Method help?

Enhance fertility: The Fertile Body Method utilizes the natural state of hypnosis as a therapeutic tool to facilitate inner change, restore balance and enhance fertility. By using the power of your mind and utilizing the mind-body connection, the Fertile Body Method can support you to achieve your optimal fertile state. This gives you the very best chance of conceiving whether you are trying to conceive naturally or through IVF/ART.

Address and reduce how infertility affects your life: The Fertile Body Method can support you to address and reduce the negative effects of fertility problems on your life. When experiencing difficulties in conceiving it is not uncommon to experience a reduced sense of mental, emotional and physical wellbeing and to feel stressed, frustrated, angry, jealous, guilty, hopeless, anxious or depressed. The Fertile Body Method uses solution-focused hypnotherapy and mind-body techniques to support you to work through powerful emotions and restore balance.
