    Many women claim reflexology helped them to conceive. Now a medical study has been launched to discover if the claims are true. The latestinfert research, a two year clinical trial at the IVF unit at Derriford Hospital in the UK, is the brainchild of reflexologist Jane Holt. Holt says, “Infertility is a complex problem and I think that often what is needed is something that gives the system a bit of a kick start and that’s what reflexology can do.” Read more about the research study…
