Infertility is a sensitive subject for many women. Women who are struggling to conceive are willing to try any means necessary to be able to realize their dream of motherhood.
These methods can range from conventional IVF treatments to any number of alternative methods. One of these alternative methods is what is known as a fertility massage. Not only for women who are struggling with infertility, regular fertility massage supports overall reproductive health.
The benefits of regular massages are well documented. Fertility massages harness the positive outcomes of massage specifically to boost reproductive health. There are many different variations of fertility massages that are available. They can be combinations of the ancient techniques of Chi Nei Tsang, reflexology, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, acupressure, as well as complimentary therapies like castor oil therapy.
All of these different variations focus on creating a healthy mind and body. Fertility massages are deeply nurturing and help restore the natural balance of your entire body. They enhance the circulation of blood and lymphatic flow to your abdominal area and pelvic bowl including your womb and ovaries by aligning the organs within the abdominal area, releasing pressure, and strengthening the area. This helps reduce pelvic tension, stress, and anything that causes stagnation in the body.
Fertility massages also help balance hormones particularly through the release of oxytocin which helps clear pathways for feedback between the pituitary, hypothalamus, and ovaries. This enables an overall healthier hormonal balance to be established. The liver, another important organ for hormonal balance, is also massaged to ensure the entire system is working for reproductive health.
Fertility massages also seek to address the possible underlying causes of infertility like blocked fallopian tubes, endometriosis, PCOS, poor egg health, ovarian cysts etc.
Fertility massages have the ability to break up adhesions and helps the body remove scar tissue which can work beautifully for women with blocked fallopian tubes. This ability combined with the improved circulation to the ovaries can also work to heal ovarian cysts and endometriosis by reducing inflammation, and helping clear congestion and stagnated old blood and tissues.
Fertility massages also increase egg health by increasing the flow of fresh oxygenated, nutrient filled blood to the eggs. They also reduce the stress that so often accompanies infertility by balancing hormones to decrease the production of prolactin, a hormone which keeps you from getting pregnant while you are breastfeeding, which increases due to stress.
These benefits make fertility massages a must try treatment not just for women struggling with infertility but for anyone looking to rebalance hormones and improve the natural balance and functioning of the reproductive system.
