Fertility massage is a new non-surgical and non-invasive alternative therapy that involves body work, referred to as soft tissue therapy.
This technique focuses on promoting general wellbeing, relaxation but most of all decreasing scarring, pelvic adhesions, or tubal obstruction and increasing the function of the reproductive organs.
Massage therapy for fertility is applied to treat Polycystic Ovarian
Syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, uterine fibroids, blocked fallopian
tubes, ovarian cysts, and many other medical conditions that cause low
fertility in women.
I do recommend Hethir Rodriguez's Self Fertility Massage DVD.
It is a wonderful fertility self healing resource that contains very
detailed massage techniques you can do every day at home.
Most women find benefit by following the program described on this
fertility massage DVD for at least 4-6 weeks.
For the majority of women suffering from infertility the only recommendation is direct medical intervention like oral hormone therapy, hormone injections, drug therapy, in-vitro fertilization, or surgery. While these procedures do work for some, they are costly, time consuming, invasive, and may pose serious side effects. Also, all these treatments are utilized to treat the symptoms of infertility without first discovering the root cause of the problem.
It has been discovered that, in many cases, infertility problems can be attributed to scar tissue, adhesions, and obstructions in the fallopian tubes, accumulation of toxins, and of course, stress and anxiety.
Unfortunately conventional medicine has no treatments for these types of conditions other than bypassing the problem and recommend IVF treatments.
Fertility massage can address all of these issues at once. More and more women prefer this type of therapeutic approach because it is safer than surgery and pharmaceutical drugs.
Massage therapy helps your body achieve an optimum health state. When you are healthier your body has more physical energy to allow healthy conception.
There are different holistic massage methods that can have a very positive effect in facilitating conception and help support a healthy pregnancy. Most fertility massage methods use deep abdominal massage that helps direct and increases the blood flow to the reproductive area.
In many fertility cases, fertility massage may help resolve possible obstructions inside the fallopian tubes in a natural and non-invasive way.
These obstructions can come from adhesions, which are bands of fibrous scar tissue that binds the bind the pelvic organs and are caused by past pelvic infections, endometriosis, abdominal surgery or physical traumas.
With fertility massage, it is possible to remove these blockages by gently massaging the tissues that surrounds the internal reproductive organs.
Fertility massage has an extremely important role in helping release stress. Many studies have shown a link between infertility in both men and women and a stressful life style. For example, stress may affect the hormonal system to the point of delaying ovulation or preventing the implantation of the fertilized embryo, increasing miscarriage risk.
By reducing the amount of stress through fertility massage, you can improve your chances of getting pregnant and staying pregnant. The road to pregnancy can be a stressful one when infertility issues are present, but prolonged stress and anxiety can further complicate matters.
Stress can somehow block your
attempt to get pregnant by creating hormonal imbalance, thus affecting
ovulation timing, cervical mucus production, egg quality, sperm
production, embryo implantation, and more.
Fertility massage is designed not only to increase the flow of blood to the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes, but also to increase a sense of well being, strengthen the immune system, stimulate the balance production of hormones, and improve the health of the lymphatic system.
The result of all this is an increased chance of achieving conception.
I want to point out that the simple biological need for rest should be welcome at all time in your life. Fertility massage has the ability to help you find that calming resting space that your body needs to promote healing.
The body functions best when in this state of deep relaxation. When you spend time either during a fertility massage session or at home resting and relaxing, your body restores and regenerates.
Cortisol and DHEA are hormones produced by your adrenal glands and indicate your level of stress. High levels of cortisol and low levels of DHEA indicate adrenal exhaustion. DHEA is a precurson of testosterone and estrogen.
When you have massage therapy you help your body relax, decreasing cortisol levels that are elevated. This helps create harmony at the mental-emotional level and balanse at the hormonal level. When your hormones are more balanced, your reproductive functions are restored.
Fertility massage also aids the release of toxins through the stimulation of the lymphatic system. This system drains fluids from your body and detoxifies your tissues by filtering out toxins and foreign substances, while strengthening the immune system.
A sluggish lymphatic system means that the waste disposal process in your body is compromised, and that the body suffers from a build-up of stagnant lymph.
When lymph circulation becomes stagnant, toxins accumulate impairing cellular functioning and indirectly your ability to conceive.
Castor oil therapy using pack sis the best way to promote lymphatic drainage and help the body eliminate scar tissue and adhesions. Apply castor oil packs before doing self fertility massage.
Fertility massage is beneficial to both women and men while trying to conceive naturally or when undergoing in vitro fertilization or artificial insemination.
Fertility massage prepares the body to create a state of wellness in which assisted reproductive procedures can be effective.
It also helps release toxins accumulated in your body as a result of fertility medications.
Make sure to drink lots of purified water after each treatment to aid your body release toxins that were trapped in your muscles and organs. Also, you may experience a cleansing effect that includes a slightly heavier period after your first few sessions, increased bowl movements, and possible soreness.
Your fertility massage therapist should advise you that this increased menstrual flow is actually a good sign that your body is getting rid of old tissue because blood clots are finally breaking free.
Increased bowl function is also a very positive effect of fertility massage. When massaging your intestinal organs, the peristaltic movements of your colon are stimulated to propel old and impacted fecal matter to be released.
The result will be less pressure on your ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus and release of intestinal toxicity that in may be the cause of low mineral absorption, hormonal imbalance and poor immune function.
The best person to perform a fertility massage is a registered massage therapist with training and experience in fertility issues. A registered massage therapist applies deep body work on the soft tissues of your body, by locating abnormal tensions in and around the organs, muscles, and connective tissues. You can also perform massage for fertility on your self by following a few simple rules.
Make sure you are not pregnant or menstruating during fertility massage. The best time to have a massage is after your period until ovulation if you trying to conceive. Always tell your practitioner if you could be pregnant.
Fertility massage works best in conjunction with homeopathic medicine
and herbal medicine. These holistic modalities are non-invasive, much
less costly, and generally more effective than IVF.
Massage therapy for fertility is also a great alternative to fertility acupuncture or cupping therapy, which can be costly over time and unconfortable to some people.
Self-Fertility Massage is non-invasive, deeply effective and you can do it on yourself in the comfort of your own home.
Before been medicated, poked and prodded, allow natural health therapies to help you achieve a healthy pregnancy naturally.
