Along with remedial and relaxation massage, we also offer our specialised signature fertility massage. This practice is a deeply relaxing, gentle and non-invasive treatment, targeting the abdominal area with the aim to re-position, tone and strengthen the uterus and gut, as well as break down any scar tissue within the reproductive organs and digestive system. Our fertility massage clinic was created with the goal of helping you and your body be more receptive throughout the process of conception.
Fertility massages are aimed at improving overall health and fertility through the power of touch. Using deep yet non-invasive manipulations of vital reproductive areas and systems, fertility massage is a common choice for anyone looking to increase their chance of conceiving. Some of the outcomes we aim for through natural fertility massages include:
Our experienced and professional massage practitioners have undergone extensive training on the techniques and skills required to provide a positive and valuable experience. Safety is at the forefront of all our treatments, as well as ensuring you are comfortable and at ease at every visit.
We recommended our fertility massages to women who are looking to do more to improve their chances of becoming pregnant. Our natural fertility massages are not designed for, and shouldn’t be continued, once you have conceived. If that is the case, we encourage you to take a look at our prenatal and pregnancy massages — tailored to support the natural processes all the way to the final stages of pregnancy.
Massage is essential maintenance for everyone and is an effective treatment for creating a fertile life when carried out by skilled and trained professionals like the ones in our fertility massage clinic in Melbourne. With competitive prices and highly-trained practitioners, let the experts help you conceive. Book your fertility massage in Melbourne today.
In a one hour treatment, your practitioner will relieve any stress or tension in your shoulders and upper back and give important focus to your lower back, sacrum, pelvic areas and hip flexors, abdominal and reproductive area around your womb. Our fertility massage therapists utilise a powerfully relaxing combination of non-invasive deep tissue massage techniques, stretching, mobilisation, reproductive reflexology, aromatherapist-formulated essential oil blend and warm wheat bags, all individualised to your needs for your treatment.
Fertility massage aims to increase blood circulation to assist in improving the availability of nutrients to growing follicles and the quality of the endometrial lining as it develops, as well as support the removal of the body’s cellular and inflammatory byproducts.
Focused in the follicular phase from menstruation to ovulation or egg collection, these fertility focused techniques aim to ease restrictions, stagnation, pelvic adhesions (and scarring over time if needed), restore mobility and function to the whole area and improve overall health. The synergistic blend of techniques chosen for you aims to reduce pain and cramping both immediately and over time, move fluid retention and bloating, improve digestion, elimination, detoxification and abdominal discomfort, relieve stress and promote relaxation too.
Regardless of where you are at on your fertility journey – at the very beginning or after a long and winding road, the massage will be tailored to your needs as well as the stage of the cycle you are in now. It is suitable at any stage of a natural or ART/IVF cycle, and will be adjusted appropriately for menstruation, follicular or stimulation phase, fertile window or egg collection/transfer phase or while you are waiting for your pregnancy test.
If you can not have regular weekly massage through your cycle, the best timing for your massage is in the follicular phase of your cycle, after your period and before ovulation.
Fertility massage works very well in conjunction with your regular acupuncture appointments and both systems complement each other. Some people are unable to have acupuncture and appreciate fertility massage as a good alternative. There is more research to support acupuncture for fertility however, and we would always recommend that you explore how acupuncture can help your fertility too.
There is no evidence to support pregnancy or live birth outcomes for fertility massage, but when you think about the many benefits of massage, it makes sense that it would be beneficial for fertility too.
Most of all, a fertility massage appointment will give you time out for you. Time to reconnect with your whole self, your heart and your womb. Time to release and let go. Time to honour what is. Time to surrender to what will be. Time to breathe. All the while, knowing you are doing something positive to support your fertility outcomes.
A 1 hour fertility massage will focus more directly on your shoulders and upper back for stress relief and give important focus to your lower back, sacrum, pelvic areas and hip flexors, abdominal and reproductive area around your womb.
If you have more time available, a 1.5 hour fertility massage will nourish your whole body, incorporating more of your limbs, hands and feet, neck and shoulders and head massage too.
Other benefits of fertility massages include:
While we would never say stress is the reason you have not been able to conceive, we do know that stress is a huge component of the journey for most people experiencing fertility issues. Tension held in muscle tissue uses energy that is not available for living life to its fullest. Making space for relaxation and learning to relax are two important aspects of any fertility journey — and regular massage will keep reminding you what deep relaxation and switching off feels like.
