Reproductive Health & Fertility Massage
Reproductive Health Massage: Ideal for those who have painful monthly periods and/or have a history of endometriosis, PID or PCOS
Massage has been used for centuries to help women increase their fertility and create a healthy uterus. Fertility massage focuses on cleansing, balancing and opening the women’s body physically and energetically while relaxing her mind so she can be ready to receive and conceive. Massage can facilitate the process physically by breaking up adhesions and increasing pelvic blood supply, help relax tense muscles and tight connective tissues that may have been constricting blood vessels and thus enabling blood to flow more freely. Additional information and details are available. Feel free to peruse our pages for additional information and details on the specific intricacies and details of Fertility Massage.
Techniques Used in Fertility Massage
A wide range of massage techniques are used in Fertility Massage. Fertility Massage incorporates deep tissue massage, myofascial release, acupressure, reflexology and castor oil therapy.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that helps to break up adhesions, increase circulation, and aids in detoxification. This is one of the most popular types of massage. The slow, deep motions of this massage helps to relax the body while promoting fresh blood flow to the area you are massaging.
Myofacial release is a massage technique that helps to release the myofacial tissue that surrounds all organs and muscles. This tissue can become twisted and adhered over time. Releasing the myofacia helps to free up organs that may have been stuck to each other and also helps with bringing fresh blood and oxygen to the reproductive organs.
Acupressure comes from Traditional Chinese Medicine based on the same ideas as acupuncture, but without the needles. It involves applying pressure to a specific point on the body to bring greater balance and circulation. Many times the acupressure point is not located near the symptom.
Integrative Reflexology™ is a massage technique that is applied to specific areas of your feet. There are points on the feet that correspond to a specific organ of the body. By stimulating that reflexology point you are helping to clear out congestion, blockages, and encouraging circulation and chi to flow to that organ. In Self Fertility Massage™ we work on reproductive, endocrine, and digestive reflex points.
Castor Oil Therapy
Castor oil therapy has been used for thousands of years as a healing therapy. Castor oil is extracted from the castor plant and is used externally on the lower abdomen. Castor oil packs are used during to Fertility Massage and you are provided with an initial supply to take home.
