Women's Fertility Health

Your Fertility Journey

After working with many pregnancy clients, who continued coming to see me post-birth, a number of them found themselves in the situation where conceiving for their next child wasn’t so easy. Many were increasing their sessions due to the stress associated with struggling to conceive. I also found myself being asked if there were ways in which I could help them to conceive on a natural and holistic level. After training in aromatherapy to help support this I then trained in Fertility Massage Therapy™ in order to be able to fully support my clients who found themselves in this situation. This is when my passion for working alongside clients who are on a fertility journey and the work this therapy can support in terms of menstruation really grew. I now continually attend training, read books, attend conferences and workshops in relation to women’s health, particularly those relating to “womb” health and fertility. 

Whether you are looking to conceive, have already started your fertility journey or are looking for support on your IVF (IVF, ICSI, IUI) journey. I will combine therapies, offer you support and nurture you on your journey.  

If you an unsure of how I can help you or would like to discuss your fertility journey and how I could support you, then please do book in for your free 15 minute discovery call

Fertility Massage Therapy™ 

Fertility Massage Therapy™ is a beautiful therapy to receive. Each session I will work intuitively as to what each exact session entails. Each session will leave you feel nurtured, nourished, relaxed and with positivity towards your womb space. Each massage is carried out using a blend of base oils and aromatherapy oils, these are chosen with your needs in mind and are also chosen in conjunction with you. Leftover oils are then given to you as a body lotion, stomach cream or body oil. Each session includes:

  • Abdominal, sacral and womb massage
  • Energy Healing
  • Meditation
  • Rebozo techniques
  • Rebozo wrapping
  • Pulsing 

Rebozos are traditional shawl which are woven by Mexican women. Rebozo rocking and wrapping is very relaxing, it can help to balance and relax the pelvis and lower back, including the womb and surrounding ligaments. Pulsing is a gentle technique used to loosen the body and help to allow negative emotions to be “rocked” out of you.

Your Emotions

During your fertility journey, there are increased stress levels, invasive procedures, emotional turmoil and so many fears and worries; our bodies hold on to these stresses and emotions, usually in our abdomens. 

Many common phrases demonstrate how we link our emotions to our stomachs…

“butterflies in my tummy”, “feel sick to my stomach” and “gut wrenching”.

Fertility Massage Therapy™ gently eases this tension, leaving you feeling freer in mind and body.

Relax

Fertility is at the forefront of your thoughts, you will no doubt receive the well-intended suggestion of “relax and you will get pregnant”…easier said than done. Taking time out to be nurtured and learning how to perform the massage on yourself, will gently encourage you to relax. Fertility Massage Therapy™ aims to support, nourish and nurture women through their fertility journey, offering one of the most important benefits; to relax and release tension and emotions trapped within.

I also provide information and support on mucus charting, nutrition, self massage, natural fertility information and support, yoni steams, castor oil packs and menstrual charting. I am also available for additional support on your fertility journey. You will also have the option to join a secret support group on Facebook for my fertility clients. We will discuss your reproductive history and I will advise you on how to help to regulate your cycles and hormones. We discuss seasons and working with your cycles for a positive impact. 

Fertility Massage Therapy™ is a nourishing blend of modalities, that when combined, brings harmony and balance to the reproductive, digestive and sacral areas. On a much deeper and probably more important level, this unique therapy re-awakens and re-connects women to their bodies, especially their womb.  The circulatory and improved blood flow effects that Fertility Massage Therapy has on the reproductive and digestive system, explains why it is an ideal complement to The Baby Creating Plan or Artificial Reproductive Technology (ART) such as IVF, ICSI, IUI, Egg or Sperm Donor.

The Cycles

Menstruation

The womb area is avoided, focus is placed on lumbar, sacral, digestive, head and neck. Rebozo techniques are used to help you let go and “free” the pelvic region. Also working energetically to help let go of negative energy, this is also complemented with a “rid of what no longer serves us” guided visualisation and meditation.

Pre-Ovulation & Ovulation (Natural & Assisted) 

All areas are worked. When you have finished your bleed the ovaries begin to work to produce mature follicles in the lead up to ovulation. It is at this time your body and womb will feel more energetic. We will work on all areas to encourage blood and oxygen to the pelvic area, encouraging nutrients to all the right places.

Post Ovulation or Post Implantation (also known as the 2 week wait) 

At this stage there is chance that you could be pregnant and we would avoid the womb area. Digestive massage is of extreme benefit during this time, sacral areas and upper abdominal areas are worked in order to encourage as much blood as possible to the womb area. This is the time that PMS can offer occur and we are aware of change and become aware what we don’t want in our surroundings. If you are actively trying to conceive or going through assisted reproductive techniques, you may wish to avoid having a session at this time, unless you are confident that you are not pregnant.

Depending on where you are in your cycle or fertility journey will influence which meditation and guided visualisation I will be using.

Upon booking your 90 minute appointment, 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 session.
