Fertility Enhancing Massage

The timing and modalities utilized during fertility massage are all designed to support reproductive vitality, from both cellular levels to organ system levels. 

Fertility massage is safe and relies on using a wide range of manual skills. Clients get to experience the powerful effects of lymphatic drainage, reflexology, acupressure, Mayan abdominal massage, craniosacral holds, essential oil application, and diaphragmatic breathing techniques. All these tools assist in proper organ positioning, increase the supply of blood to reproductive organs, as well as activate the glands whose job it is to produce fertility hormones and prepare the body for pregnancy.

FAQ’s

Fertility massage has a focus and goal that is quite different from other styles of massage. This type of massage is focused and therapeutic by utilizing tools and techniques that change the chemistry and anatomy. There are many powerful and specific modalities that are used during a customized fertility massage session. All these tools work together to support fertility and prepare the body for pregnancy.

Whether you are following your  natural cycle or are working within the confines of  an IVF/IUI/FET cycle, you should be getting fertility enhancing massages. For natural cycles the protocol would work during the week of the menses,  the two weeks before ovulation, then during the waiting time before taking a pregnancy test. For IVF/IUI/FET cycles the protocols are safe during the week of the menses, before transfer, and the two weeks after implantation occurs and you’re waiting for bloodwork to confirm a pregnancy.

Unlike working with an ovulation cycle, men can work with the massage protocols at any time. Fertility issues for men can also be related to STI history, diet, steroid use, physical blockages for seminal flow, and side effects to RX medications. We work together to support reproductive health from both the cell level and the whole body.
