Can Fertility Massage Help with Fertility Issues?
There are many fertility issues that Fertility Massage can assist with. Some of these fertility issues are:
Blocked Fallopian Tubes
One of the greatest benefits of massage is the ability to break up adhesions. Fertility Massage gently helps to break up adhesions while helping the body to get rid of the remaining scar tissue. The techniques used in massage include massaging the fallopian tubes in addition to the uterus and ovaries. Massage provides a great non-intrusive option for women with blocked fallopian tubes.
Fertility Massage helps the body with congestive issues like endometriosis. When endometrial tissues begin to grow in other areas of the body besides the uterus, irritation occurs which then can create scar tissue. This in turn can cause organs to begin to become stuck together by the scar tissue and tight fascia. It may also cause Fallopian tubes to begin to twist. Massage can be used to help breakup the adhesions, decrease the inflammation, and help the body to rid itself of the old blood left from the endometrial tissues.
Fertility Massage may also help with the occasional pain that is caused from endometriosis. Endorphins are released during a massage which help to reduce pain and stress.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is another fertility issue that causes stagnation in the body. When ovulation does not occur and a cysts begins to grow on the ovaries, this causes a series of imbalances to occur, one of the main ones being hormonal imbalance. Fertility Massage includes techniques which promote the hormonal feedback loop to communicate fully which in turn helps the body to ovulate, menstruate, and be in balance. Massage also can help to bring circulation to the ovaries, helping to nourish and bring fresh blood to your eggs. While diet is still the #1 therapy for PCOS, Fertility Massage can really help to make a difference.
When it comes to unexplained infertility, the best approach is to focus on creating a healthy body, a healthy mind, and bringing balance to your life. This approach helps to cover all bases and create a healthy body without causing further harm. Fertility Massage can be helpful in many ways if you are experiencing unexplained infertility. The techniques help to increase circulation which in turn helps to increase egg health by bringing fresh oxygenated, nutrient filled blood to the eggs. Massage also helps with stress that comes along with infertility. Stress has been shown in studies to affect hormonal balance by increasing prolactin (the hormone that keeps you from getting pregnant while you are breastfeeding).
One of the main benefits of Fertility Massage is that it increases circulation to the ovaries. This can be helpful if you have ovarian cysts by helping to clear out congestion, reduce inflammation, and promote hormonal balance. In conjunction with reducing environmental and dietary oestrogen.
Massage encourages healthy communication between the pituitary gland, the hypothalamus, and the ovaries. This is called the “feedback loop”. It controls the levels of hormones produced in the body. By massaging the ovaries and including the stress-relieving benefits of massage, a healthier balance can be found in the body. In Fertility Massage the liver is also massaged, which is another important organ for hormonal balance.
Do you get cramps every menstrual cycle?
While there are many different causes of menstrual cramps, massage may help most of them. Let’s look at a few of the reasons menstrual cramps occur:
- The uterus is contracting to expel old blood
- A “cold uterus” – This is a term used in TCM which means a uterus that is lacking proper circulation.
- Scar tissue left from surgery, PID, or endometriosis may cause a lot of pain when the uterus contracts during menstruation.
- Nutritional deficiencies have been shown to effect PMS and menstrual cramps.
- Tilted uterus
Improving Egg Health
One of the foundations of natural fertility is promoting egg health through eating nutrient-dense foods and antioxidants which help to protect the egg’s integrity from free radicals. Another important aspect to egg health is proper oxygen, nutrients, and circulation. Fertility Massage helps to bring much needed circulation to the ovaries, therefore, supplying the eggs with oxygen and antioxidants.
Stress Caused from Fertility Issues
While trying to stay stress free during your journey towards motherhood is important, it can sometimes seem impossible. Fertility Massage is a very relaxing routine that you can also use as a stress-relieving therapy. While you are receiving a massage, the body begins to relax, blood flow increases, endorphins (feel good hormones) release, and muscles let go.
Many health issues can be traced back to poor circulation. Having healthy circulation is key to fertility and overall health because getting fresh, clean, oxygenated blood to our organs and cells is of the utmost importance. Massage helps the body to return blood to the heart for oxygen, helps to move lymph fluids, and helps the body to process and get rid of toxins found in organs and muscles. There are many causes of poor circulation. The main ones being:
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Sitting for long periods of time
- Lack of exercise
- High cholesterol
When should I get Fertility Massage for best results?
- It is done for the first 2 weeks of your cycle or until ovulation.
- If you are not having cycles it is done weekly until your cycle returns.
- Once or twice a week for at least three weeks.
