"Reflexology helped me to conceive..not once, but twice...at 41 and 43 years of age!"
After years of trying to conceive we finally went to see a Fertility Specialist to be told that I would be starting pre menopause in about the next 3 months, my egg reserve was extremely low and my chances of falling pregnant were less than 5%. This was when I was 37. A week later I fell pregnant but sadly we miscarried. BUT I still did fall pregnant so I believed that it would happen again. After years of taking temps, charting, timing, and going crazy it still hadn’t happened so we saw a Fertility Specialist again. We were in the process of accepting doing IVF with donor eggs when I decided to see Connie for my mental and emotional health and of course as a last shot of falling pregnant naturally. I was a mess, always crying, not coping every month at that dreaded time, announcements of other pregnancies etc. After just my first visit, I felt lighter than I had in years, a little stress had been lifted and I was a lot less teary. I only saw Connie for about 7 months before I fell pregnant. But in that time every month I got better and better. My stress levels dropped, I wasn’t an emotional mess anymore crying at ads on the TV. I felt good! Another amazing side effect was my periods became pain free. I suffered terrible period pain my whole life and for the first time I felt nothing when I had them. It was truly amazing. Then of course the real miracle, me and my crappy old eggs (and my hubby of course) made a baby at 41 Years old. Years after supposedly starting menopause (which still hasn’t happened at 44). My pregnancy was great and he was born at 38 weeks just perfect. After that we thought that was our miracle, so we stopped trying but didn’t prevent either. After a year I went to see Connie again, mainly because I missed her and her sessions but I also asked her to perform another miracle, she just (lovingly) laughed at me. But I fell pregnant again this time at 43 and had another awesome pregnancy and welcomed a beautiful baby girl into our family. I tried every potion, diet and supplement in the book. I was a total sceptic when I first went to see Connie. I thought, how can someone rubbing your feet benefit you so much? Well it worked, so if you aren’t a believer, what have you got to lose really, everyone loves a foot massage and this one comes with multiple benefits. I thank you Connie Hardy from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done for me, you fixed me emotionally, freed me from pain and gave me 2 miracles. I only wish I still had time to come and see you, hopefully soon xxx Katie Edward
"Reflexology helped me to conceive...and helped me reduce swelling in my feet and ankles.'
"I found Connie during my journey of trying to conceive our second child. Unfortunately, like so many women out there, falling pregnant is not an easy task for my body and I was willing to explore any and all natural alternative treatments and therapies that were available to me before going down the line of medical intervention and medications. So with this, I did what any likeminded person would do and Googled “Townsville Reflexology and Fertility” and Connie’s name was the first to pop up.
I began seeing Connie for regular reflexology sessions in January 2015 with the hope that this would support my struggles with conceiving as I was combating an irregular menstrual cycle at the time and knew that if I could get this under control, I would be one step closer to conceiving. Within three months of seeing Connie weekly my cycle had become more regular and by five months I was pleased and excited to announce that myself and my husband were expecting our second baby.
I maintained my reflexology sessions with Connie throughout my entire pregnancy as I found them to also be very beneficial to reduce swelling in my feet and any aches and pains I was experiencing in other areas of my body. I looked forward to my sessions with Connie as they were physically extremely relaxing and I walked out each week feeling mentally grounded and refreshed.
I would highly recommend that any woman experiencing fertility concerns should consider reflexology first as an alternative natural method supporting conception prior to exploring medications and medical treatments if possible.
I am and will be forever grateful that I found Connie and I cannot speak highly enough of her and her amazing talent. Connie truly puts everything she has to give into each of her clients and you can really see how passionate she is about what she does, aiming to help resolve any personal and physical issues while also improving and maintaining your overall health and wellbeing. ~ E.H Top picture is my feet at 40 weeks during my first pregnancy Bottom picture is my feet at 40 weeks with regular Reflexology.
Connie, I just wanted to write you a quick note to thank you so much for my Shell Essences spray. It has become a staple in our daily routine! My 4 yo will ask for the spray when she is feeling a bit average and I think its very empowering for her have something that she can use herself for when she is feeling a bit ‘yukky’ (as she likes to say) . I keep mine at my desk and its wonderful to give me a boost and I find it immediately invigorating and soothing, especially when my workload gets a bit stressful. The spray you put together for my mother is just amazing. When she was in the hospital she used it to help cleanse the area and she credits the spray with helping her to sleep and also calm her fears. She is back in the home now and it sits within reach beside her bed and she uses it all the time. I don’t ever want to be without my shell essences spray! Thank you so much! E.M. - Townsville
Hi Connie, I've been meaning to send this for some time. I wanted to say how very glad you have made me. I've always been interested in Reflexology but never had the opportunity to try it, and then I met you at the beautiful Bushland Beach Markets, what a perfect place to have a treatment with the sea breeze and sound of the waves – so calming and peaceful. I'm sure every person you met there feels exactly the same.
Initially I needed help for my right foot (as you know with my Heel spur), your treatments were so calming and peaceful and I'm just amazed how many other things you were able to tell me just from touching my feet! I had already been to my GP, Podiatrist and Accupuncture with little change.
I finished the treatment calm and centred, but also energized and awakened. What a gift you have.
Your knowledge of natural therapies is impressive and your kindness to share your knowledge is even more so. You are so easy to speak to, your follow up to check after the treatments is really lovely too.
As you know my husband enjoyed his treatment too, and thankyou for the information, as he went and had the Atlas treatment too.
You have made a great difference in our lives, and I just wanted to thank you for that. ~ Angela Betteridge
I have suffered from Lower back pain & sciatica since an accident in early 2000’s. Also had a number of losses to family & home which contributed to situational anxiety & depression.
I have tried a number of treatments such as physiotherapy, acupuncture & massage. I was extremely surprised that without knowing my ailments Connie was able to tell by manipulation of my feet.
Am usually someone who is a sceptic, require scientific evidence & spend time looking at side effects of various treatments & medications. Over the last few years I have been trying not to use medications due to the phenomenal side effects & issues after prolonged use. So found myself drawn to reflexology as these types of practices have been documented throughout history of China & Egypt. I met Connie when I was going through a great deal of stress, loss & grief. Connie introduced me to Reflexology & Shell Essence & I have never looked back.
It was like waking up in the morning with the best night sleep & feeling amazing. There was definitely a lift, felt lighter, walking better. My eyes look brighter & clear where previous were dull.
I was not sleeping very well due to high stress & anxiety. By using the Shell Essence drops it has helped to keep me calm & grounded which has enabled me to get the needed sleep, feel positive & a sense of being safe. I have felt motivated to do things where previously I was not physically or emotionally able. (Name withheld by request)
I'm so grateful for amazing reflexology ... have been exercising every day, feeling so much more happier and calm and true ...so again thank you I'm very lucky. ..looking forward to seeing you again soon 20-11-2014 Thank-you I feel amazing. I had IBS & a really upset stomach for approx. 2 weeks. I came in feeling really ungrounded, shaky, lacking energy, not sleeping well & not feeling well within myself for no real reason at all & left feeling like my feet didn’t touch the ground & I was on cloud 9. Thank-you I now feel really good & am back to my old bubbly & chirpy self.
26-11-2014 Hi Connie I just wanted to say how much better I'm feeling since coming to you. I've suffered from back and neck pain from a car accident years ago and have tried chiropractors, remedial massage, physio etc. and have only gotten one or two days of no pain. Since coming into reflexology as more of a natural approach, it has been the best treatment so far. My everyday pain has been dulled and I no longer think about it 24 hours a day. Thank you Connie for your time and knowledge and if anyone is skeptical try it, you won't be disappointed.
I would like to say the shell essence has been a big life saver for my 9 year old daughter who is bothered by spirits and empathetic towards other children. Since using the "I am safe all is well" shell essence she has no night visitors waking her up. She uses it every night before bed and sprays her bed and body before hopping into bed. She even takes it to school to use if she has to. We now have 'Just me' as well to get rid of any negative energy from others. I have to admit that I use this one as well and find it works instantly! Thank you, Laura 28-11-2014
Facebook Reviews: Melanie F May 4 at 10:40am I can definitely vouch for this Connie. Reflexology has completely changed my periods. They are now much more bearable. Virtually zero pain and much lighter and shorter flow.
Cheryl Stout reviewed Connie Hardy Reflexology — 5 star September 8 2017 · First time I have tried reflexology /metamorphic touch and there is nothing to compare. There is no way to explain just how deeply relaxed, calming it is. If you are ever thinking I need a massage to pamper yourself forget it book in and see connie for a reflexology session. Your body will love you. Symone Dickinson reviewed Connie Hardy Reflexology — 5 star March 31 2016 Connie is amazing, I highly recommend getting shell essences or reflexology through her. I was extremely stressed and anxious about ridiculous stuff the other day before my treatment and my daughter was having trouble sleeping. Connie did up a shell essence mix for me and my daughter picked some sprays for her room. Connie also did some heart healing (similar to visualising). Within 2 days my daughter is sleeping through the night again and having a day nap without issues and I feel 50% less stress then the average day and am getting a better sleep (not just because my daughter is sleeping)
Elise Hansen reviewed Connie Hardy Reflexology — 5 star January 26, 2016· Connie is absolutely amazing at her craft of reflexology as she truly puts her everything into each of her clients and you can really see how passionate she is about what she does and wanting to help you with resolving any personal and physical issues while also improving and mainatining your health and wellbeing. I began seeing Connie in January 2015 in the hope of falling pregnant as I was combating an irregular menstrual cycle which did not help the process. Within five months of seeing Connie consistently my cycle became more regular and I was pleasantly surprised to have fallen pregnant! I am due in mid February this year and have Connie to thank for assisting in my journey of a healthy pregnancy. I would highly recommend anybody facing infertility issues seriously consider reflexology as an alternative natural method before looking into sometimes unnecessary medications and IVF which can be so traumatic to the body. Not only did reflexology support my journey of falling pregnant but it is also a very relaxing and calming experience which I look forward to each occasion and never want the sessions to end!
Karen Corbett -- 5 star Connie is fantastic at what she does, Connie fixed my feet when the doctors wanted to chop them open, wonderful lady too, thank you so much
Tamara Smith — 5 star I feel sooooo much better after seeing Connie physically, emotionally and spiritually...can't recommend her enough...THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU :D August 1, 2015
Sarah Kendall Connie supported me greatly with her knowledge and also Reflexology treatments and I believe she helped me achieve a successful pregnancy. If you are going to go through IVF you need to give yourself the best chance of success and that is why I chose to see Connie, and also love to relax during a reflexology session. xx November 4, 2015
