13 Dec 5 benefits of fertility massage therapy
Fertility massage is a form of abdominal massage that is gentle, yet very effective. The massage is often used for women with digestive and reproductive issues involving a non-invasive, external abdominal/belly massage and back massage. The techniques help to align the organs within the abdominal area, releasing pressure, and strengthening the area. This in turn stimulates and supports circulation and blood flow within the abdominal area and pelvic bowl, supporting the body for optimal function of digestive and reproductive health and wellness.

Women often come to see us when they are trying to conceive, when experiencing fertility issues, through pregnancy and the postpartum period, or when experiencing gynaecological concerns, such as PCOS, endometriosis, or when undergoing IVF.
Fertility Massage has so many benefits, including the following.
The massage is thought to release feel good hormones, including oxytocin. This promotes hormonal balance by clearing pathways for feedback between reproductive organs and endocrine system.
Fertility massage helps to break up scar tissue and adhesions from caesarians, pelvic issues and abdominal surgery. The removal of adhesions is really effective in providing a non-intrusive therapy for blocked fallopian tubes as well as with endometriosis, as it decreases inflammation.

It also helps to bring fresh, oxygenated blood to the ovaries, improving egg health and improving circulation to the uterus ad surrounding organs.
It also removes stagnant blood and tissues, clearing congestion. In endometriosis the massage rids the body of the old blood, thereby improving health of the womb.
Finally it reduces pain through release of endorphins during the massage. Long-term pain is also helped by the reduction of scar tissue and removal of old blood.
