Fertility Massage is not just for women who are experiencing fertility problems - it is a massage for EVERY woman. In essence, it is a Womb-an's massage treatment. A healing way to reconnect with our womb space, whether or not the actual womb is present.
Fertility Massage treatment uses a unique combination of techniques to;
- improve circulation, function of the reproductive and digestive organs to promote physical healing.
- provide a safe space for emotional releasing
- help relieve stress and anxiety
- help to reconnect you with your body, particularly, your womb space
Let's dive deeper into the benefits of Fertility Massage in these areas.
1.Promoting Physical Healing
All forms of massage have been found to increase the blood flow to the area being worked on. This is important because the blood brings much needed oxygen and nutrients to the cells while removeing the waste materials and toxins.
By massaging the abdomen, the digestive organs and reproductive organs gain an increased blood flow, which can help ease constipation, bloating and help repair damaged tissues (adhesions and scars).
The self-guided massage techniques are taught to you by the therapist so you can continue the healing process in-between your treatments.
2. Emotional Releasing
Most Fertility Massage therapists will use a guided visualisation whilst you are safely cocooned in the Rebozo's (Mexican shawls) to allow you let go of any deeply held negative emotions which could be impeding your physical or mental well being.
During the massage itself the therapist may facilitate release of trapped emotions through acupressure points or trigger points through the body. By building a safe, non -judgmental space for each client, it is easy and natural to let go of old emotions.
3. Off-Setting Stress
When we are in a state of heighten stress, our bodies take on a survival mode (called fight or flight) and our reproductive system is the only one which our bodies view as expendable. Once the stress or danger has passed our body can renew its maintenance of the reproductive organs.
If we have been exposed to a high-stress experience, we can off-set it's effects through Fertility or Abdominal Massage. All forms of massage can off-set stress, by helping your body to release muscular tension and help you feel safe, and therefore relaxed. In Fertility Massage by stimulating the blood flow back to the reproductive and digestive organs, we can release the stress hormone - cortisol and help bring your body's attention back to the reproductive organs.
4. Womb Re-connection & Self Nurture
Another aspect of Fertility Massage is Pulsing and Rebozo work (Mexican Shawls). Both of these techniques help put the body in a safe space. The gentle rhythmic rocking, in time with a baby in utero, helps to allow the muscles of the body to release and let go.
The Rebozo wrapping is a form of swaddling, providing you with a cocoon like experience, like being held and rocked in a hammock.
