There are a plethora of different sorts of fertility massages available these days. You could even use one of these, or two or three of these, in conjunction with one another to boost your chances of becoming pregnant. Some of these massages, on the other hand, should only be performed by a qualified therapist who is well-versed in them. The following are a few of the most common fertility massage techniques:
This type of massage therapy is used to dissolve pelvic adhesions that normally disrupt the proper functioning of the fallopian tubes, causing infertility. Adhesions are frequently caused by pelvic scarring from surgeries or infections. The Maya abdominal massage has been utilized for centuries by traditional healers in Central America. These two massage techniques can be safely used to treat reproductive issues.
This massage therapy is based on acupuncture principles. The ancient Chinese medical system believes in a life force or energy called ‘qi’ that runs through the body via certain paths called ‘meridians’. These channels connect many organs in the body, and when the flow is disturbed, the organs get ill. An acupuncturist will apply pressure to specific locations along the channels to clear blockages and restore energy flow, restoring balance to the damaged organs. This method can help with infertility and menstrual issues.
A lighter touch is used in this technique, which is known for being calming. It is one of the most common types of massage treatments. The use of this massage technique can be particularly beneficial for women who are experiencing a great deal of stress during the conception process.
It is part of the Myofascial Release Therapy to massage the connective tissues that lie between the internal organs and the muscles during the procedure. In addition to treating fertility concerns, the approach can be used to address a variety of other ailments such as chronic fatigue, chronic back pain, osteoarthritis, and fibromyalgia as well as other types of discomfort.
Massage therapy, often known as reflexology, is a technique in which pressure is administered to certain areas on the hands and feet in order to trigger the body’s natural healing mechanisms. The technique, which has its roots in ancient Egypt, is being used today in many parts of the world to treat a variety of issues, including infertility and hormonal imbalances, and it can be coupled with other procedures to provide the best possible results.
Several therapists concentrate on the belly because they believe that stress accumulates in the abdominal region and that massaging the abdomen can aid in the process of conception. Although the abdomen area of your body can be sensitive when you are trying to conceive, keep in mind that massage should not be painful when you are doing so. When performing the Mayan abdominal massage for fertility on your own or with the assistance of a professional, make sure to gradually reduce the pressure until it feels comfortable.
Similar to the Shiatsu Massage, which is a pressure-point technique, it can be particularly beneficial for parts of the body that correlate to the reproductive organs. It can also aid in the promotion of deep relaxation.
This treatment requires knowing your boundaries. If you have extreme pain, stop using this therapy and call your doctor. Time these massages properly. Do not use them if you are menstruating as they may disrupt the body’s normal cycle. If you think you’re pregnant, stop doing fertility massages.
When to Avoid Fertility Massages?
Fertility massages should not be performed when:
- If you are or may be pregnant.
- It’s advised to avoid fertility massages shortly after ovulation because it may disrupt the next cycle.
- If massaging causes pain. This could be due to a medical issue that massaging exacerbates.
- If you’re nursing
This is a complex issue. If you’ve been trying to conceive for months with no success, it’s time to talk to your doctor about fertility massages, infertility treatments, and your next steps.
