Fertility Massage is a series of massage techniques that are used to help support reproductive health, the menstrual cycle, and your fertility.
Using a nourishing blend of combined modalities, which brings harmony and balance to the reproductive, digestive & sacral areas, it also re-awakens and re-connects women to their bodies, especially their womb.
The techniques work to restore the body to its natural balance by correcting the position of organs that have shifted and restrict the flow of blood, lymph, nerve and chi energy.
Fertility massage is designed not only to increase the flow of blood to the uterus, ovaries and Fallopian tubes, but also to increase a sense of well being, strengthen the immune system, balance hormones, and improve the health of the lymphatic system. The result of all this is increased chances of conceiving a baby.
There is also a psychological element to the treatment designed to alleviate ‘mental blocks’, so visualisation techniques and special meditation are used to put you in the best possible frame of mind.
The massage concentrates on the abdominal areas where women tend to push their stress, anxiety, anger, and emotions, which is why we see IBS so much more in women than in men.
Fertility massage can be used for natural conception or assisted cycles. The use of fertility massage leading up to your IVF procedure may help to increase your success rate of implantation.
Fertility Massage Through Your Cycle
The womb area is avoided during menstruation. Massage will focus on the lubar/sacral areas, digestive, head and neck areas. Rezobo massage will also be used during this phase which help you deeply relax and “let go”. Menstruation is also known as our “Winter Phase” where energetically women want to retreat, have solitude and space. It can also be a time when we are shredding emotions and negative energy that no longer serves us.
Pre-Ovulation & Ovulation (Natural & Assisted)
When your menstruation period has ended your ovaries begin working hard to produce mature follicles leading up to ovulation. Lower back, sacral, digestive and womb areas will be worked during this phase. This will increase the circulation in the whole of your abdomen, which in turns boosts oxygen, nutrients and hormonal low to the womb and ovaries.
Pre-ovualtion is our “Spring Phase”, Ovualtion is our “Summer”. This is the time when our bodies start to wake up and become more energetic.
Post Ovulation (natural) or Post Implantation (Assisted)
There maybe a chance you maybe pregnant in this part of your cycle, so your treatment will be altered to reflect this. As progesterone rises, our digestive system slows down, so focus is on the sacral, upper abdominal areas/digestive areas. .The womb area is again avoided. Post Ovulation is our “Autumn phase”, the time of change and for awareness of what we need to clear from our lives. Typically PMS symptoms flare up now, we often become less tolerant of mundane matters.
Pulsing and rezobo techniques will also be used.
Once you have ovulated or had embryo transfer, there is a chance that you may be pregnant, and your treatment will be altered to reflect this.
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. Pulsing is a beautifully gentle method of shifting these feelings from within and allowing them to surface and be rocked out of your body.
Fertility Massage will help to alleviate stress during the “two week wait”, which can be emotionally draining for many women. The techniques used will help in releasing positive and happy hormones, such as Oxytocin, which are more beneficial during this waiting period.

Treatments start with a lumbar, sacral and gluteal massage, allowing you time to relax and become accustomed to my energy and touch before the abdominal massage. 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.
