What to Expect During Fertility Massage
Upon booking your Initial consultation, you will be asked to complete & submit a comprehensive consultation form prior to your appointment.
We will discuss your fertility journey, and any emotional aspects that may arise, which will then be followed by a full fertility massage treatment.
After your treatment, you will receive follow up support in the form of information on castor oil packs yoni steams, menstrual charting and fertility lifestyle advice.
Follow Up Appointments
All treatments start with Tibetan Bells…this clears the energy, and lets you know that the massage will start. It’s time to allow the stress and worries of the day to be left outside of the massage space.
Treatments start with you receiving the lumbar, sacral and gluteal massage. We are mostly comfortable with receiving back massages, and by starting here, you will have time to relax, slow down and become accustomed to my energy and touch.
When massaging your abdomen, you will be receiving touch from your pubic bone up to your rib-cage, and will include a beautiful blend of oil techniques, pulsing, rebozo and guided visualisations. You will be nurtured, nourished and held in a safe place to allow you to release deep seated emotions that may be blocking your energy.
“I came out of my fertility massage session feeling renewed and positive about the future. I felt like I was suddenly in control and incredibly after just a few short weeks I became pregnant. I’m now 13 weeks and an extremely happy and excited mummy to be!” Becky 2014. Read more here
Fertility Massage Through your Cycle
Menstruation (Natural & Assisted)
During menstruation, you can still receive the massage, however, the womb area is avoided. The focus will then be on the lumbar/sacral area, digestive, reflexology and head & neck. Rebozo massage is wonderful during this time; to help deeply relax and allow the natural flow of this phase to let go.
Energetically, menstruation is our Winter phase, when women want to hide away, be in their “cave”, have solitude and space! It is also the time that when we shed our blood, we are also shedding emotions and negativity that no longer serve us well.
Your massage will reflect & support this phase.
Pre-Ovulation & Ovulation (Natural & Assisted)
Therefore your massage will incorporate all 3 areas; lower back, digestive and womb. With an increased circulation in your whole abdominal area, you are boosting the nutrients, oxygen and hormonal flow to your womb and ovaries.
All treatments will vary according to your unique situation.
Energetically, Pre-Ovulation is our Spring time whilst Ovulation is our Summer. These seasons are when we start to wake up and become alive within our bodies, the time when most women feel full of hope and energy.
Your massage will leave you feeling nurtured yet vibrant, and physically your circulation of fluids and energy is at it’s highest.
Post Ovulation (natural) or Post Implantation (Assisted)
You can still receive the massage, however, like with menstruation, we avoid the womb area. Plenty of focus is placed on the sacrum and upper abdomen to ensure as much circulation is being pumped to your wombs. In the post ovulatory phase as progesterone rises, our digestive system slows down due to a slower peristaltic action. Therefore, digestive massage will be of benefit during this time.
Other techniques such as Reflexology, Pulsing and Rebozo may also be included depending on your individual case.
Energetically, Post Ovulation is our Autumn phase; the time of change and for awareness of what we need to clear from our lives. This is typically our PMS, when we become less tolerant of mundane matters and maybe a little quicker to fly off the handle. Pulsing is a beautifully gentle method of shifting these feelings from within and allowing them to surface and be rocked out of your body.
This is also the “2 week wait” and can be emotionally draining for many women. Fertility Massage will help to alleviate stress, releasing positive and happy hormones, such as Oxytocin, which are more beneficial during this waiting period than feeling stressed.
You can receive Fertility Massage Therapy™ throughout your cycle, changing and flowing, as you do!
