This is my new blog page for all things Fertility Massage.
I work as a therapist at Yanley Court/Natural Pregnancy Partnership in Long Ashton and I have a huge interest in Women's Wellbeing.
what is Fertility Massage (FM)?
Fertility Massage Therapy is a combination of massage techniques which focus on the abdominal and sacral areas of the body. It is a deep massage which at the same time is gentle, nurturing and healing. It is a mind body therapy and can be helpful in releasing unhelpful emotions and tension from your body.
What happens during a FM?
It is a non invasive therapy - the massage centres around the mid section of your body. I do offer the option of having reflexology at the end of the session which is deeply relaxing. I can also use Aromatherapy oils and Castor oil packs.
What are the benefits?
So some of the feedback that I have received so far emphasises the difference in their periods. I have had clients who have noticed positive changes in their flow (less clotting and pain). I have also massaged many women who are preparing for Assisted Reproductive Treatments - IVF and ICSI and others who have decided to take a more natural route.
Is it just for Fertility?
No - Because FM works over the abdominal area it can help to relieve some of the symptoms of PMS, Menopause and IBS. It can encourage a natural movement and clearing of your gut/bowel which can relieve feelings of heaviness and bloating.
Massage works by stimulating the muscles, releasing tension, improving nerve, blood and lymph flow, releasing pressure and clearing out toxins.
