Fertility massage is designed as a protocol to enhance a couple’s potential to conceive naturally or with help with assisted reproductive technology. Assisted reproductive technology may include IUI, FAST, IVF, GIFT, ZIGT and ICSI.
The intention of the fertility massage session is to support the body in cleansing, reducing stress hormones, balancing reproductive hormones and stimulating the reproductive organs with reflexology. It is designed to support the client in achieving a state of balance emotionally, mentally, psychically and spirituality through cranial sacral holds and shiatsu on the Chinese meridians and Acupressure points. Essential oils are added to the massage oils to tonify the reproductive systems. Castor oil pack are applied on the abdomen during the session for a cleansing effect.
Fertility massage also assists in reducing stress of modern life and supports digestive cleansing for better nutritional assimilation. Positioning the uterus and pelvic friction to break up congestion are an essential part of this massage, this increases circulation in the pelvis and breaks up adhesions and congestion.
Woman can benefit from fertility massage if they are having difficulties from one or more of the following:
- Hormonal imbalances: due to stress, age, lifestyle, diet and lack of movement
- Pelvic congestion: due to previous abdominal surgery, sedentary lifestyle (long periods of sitting), holding excess weight in abdomen and poor digestion and eating habits. The lack of optimal blood and lymphatic flow will create a sluggish area and lead to possible menstrual problems and fertility challenges.
- Adhesions: connective tissue bound up and adhering to the bones, muscles and organs. This is often from prior surgeries.
- Endometriosis: is the buildup of endometrium tissue on other parts of the abdominal cavity.
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome( PCOS): a hormonal imbalance that involves the ovaries producing too much testosterone. This in turn causes cysts with a hard shell on the ovaries.
- Fertility massage also supports women who are trying to conceive naturally.
HOPE IS THE THING WITH FEATHERS
THAT PERCHES IN THE SOUL
AND SINGS THE TUNE WITHOUT THE WORDS
AND NEVER STOPS AT ALL.
