When I was training to be an acupuncturist over 10 years ago, one of the first things I learnt was how Traditional Medicine had recognised for over 2000 years, the complete interconnectedness of our emotional wellbeing and our physical health. So by tending to our emotional health we also bring far reaching benefits to our body. This is something that has only latterly been accepted by Western Medicine.
In traditional oriental medicine the organs of the body are viewed differently, with our organs being linked to different emotional attributes. These connections feel instinctively insightful, and as a fertility coach this is useful knowledge to share with clients. For example the heart is not only seen as a physical pump but also the seat of our emotions and central to our fertility. Traditional acupuncture even recognises an energetic connection between the heart and the uterus.
So when looking at your fertility health, taking time to look after your emotional wellbeing is so important, and that’s where my work as a fertility coach comes in. I support my clients to understand more about their emotional wellbeing, and provide a nurturing space to look at the emotional landscape of their lives, how to work with their emotions as opposed to feeling overwhelmed by them, and how they can increase their resilience and emotional wellbeing, step by step, every day. Striving for perfection is draining. Making time to do things that bring calmness, a little joy and a sense of peace are key.
