This past weekend in Surfside Beach, SC, I became certified in Fertility Massage through Claire Marie Miller Seminars, Inc, which is a part of her Nurturing the Mother (tm) series. My Instructor was Ms. Ellen Brady of Mother Earth Day Spa Surfside Beach, SC and I thoroughly enjoyed her teaching style. This class was brought about after Claire's own conscious conception of her own daughter Jessica and after Claire studying various massage techniques which resulted in assisting other women to naturally conceive children on their own.
I first became interested in this massage modality after being diagnosed with the early stages of uterine cancer a few years ago and having to come to grips with my own fertility issues. I can truly relate to the ever present pressure as a woman in her late who doesn't have any children and having to deal with the constant question of "when are you going to have kids?". I also have Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), which is a hormonal imbalance that involves the ovaries producing too much testosterone which then prevents the eggs from releasing into the fallopian tubes and they then turn into mini cysts with hard shells on the ovaries. This becomes a huge barrier in trying to become pregnant.
I am happy to say that I am now cancer free without any radiation or chemotherapy and I did not have to have a hysterectomy. The PCOS is something that I am continually healing myself from, but after this past weekend I am excited to have yet another tool to use to help combat it. After receiving the fertility massage on myself all weekend, I learned firsthand how amazingly powerful and healing this system really is. I am grateful for Claire Marie Miller for developing this technique. I am so looking forward to not only using this system to help others heal and conceive, but to use it to conceive myself!
What is Fertility Massage?
Fertility Massage is a non-surgical and non -invasive massage that promotes general well-being, relaxation, and most importantly the decrease of scarring, pelvic adhesions, or tubal obstruction and increases the functions of the reproductive organs. All of which is vitally important when trying to conceive a child.
This type of massage is also great for the treatment of PCOS, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, blocked fallopian tubes, ovarian cysts, painful menstrual cycles, and other reproductive conditions that affect women that causes low fertility.
Fertility massage does not replace the need for medical intervention such as oral hormone therapy, in-vitro fertilization, or hormone injections. It is actually a great tool for couples who are going through assisted reproductive technology to use to help the efficacy of these treatments. Fertility massage gives a more therapeutic approach, as we already know that massage already helps the body to achieve an optimum state of health, in addition to helping to relieve physical and emotional tension, both of which are commonplace when one is trying to conceive a child.
Fertility massage is designed to increase the blood flow to the uterus, ovaries and the fallopian tubes through deep abdominal massage and the use of castor oil packs. Castor oil therapy was introduced by a great healer by the name of Edgar Cayce and are used in this type of massage to help promote lymphatic drainage, and to help eliminate scar tissue and adhesions.
Benefits of Fertility Massage:
I am so excited to add this positive, natural, and cost effective alternative of natural health for fertility to my practice. In addition to the massage, I will also offer several herbal formulas that will work in conjunction with the fertility massage to further the possibility of helping a couple to conceive. This is not to dismiss the use of fertility drugs, but to allow the couple to try out natural, homeopathic and herbal remedies to provide themselves with a healthy environment for their child to be conceived. The herbal formulas will be offered through my marketplace here on this website.
In addition to the massage and the herbs, my clients will receive fertility yoga instruction, healthy diet suggestions, as well as guided meditation instruction to assist them in this process. Here at A Soulful Touch Wellness, I promote total holistic protocols that incorporate the mind, body and spirit. This massage services goes hand and hand with the pregnancy massage as well as the doula services I already offer. So my clients have a one stop shop when it comes to fertility and pregnancy.
