Fertility Massage use a range of wonderful relaxing methods 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 bespoke visualisation techniques and special relaxing meditations 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.
During menstruation the womb area is avoided and the massage will focus more so 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 period has ended your ovaries begin working hard to produce mature follicles leading up to ovulation. This is the ideal time to work on your lower back, sacral, digestive and womb areas. This will help 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, we avoid the womb area. As progesterone rises, our digestive system slows down due to a slower peristaltic action. Therefore, digestive massage will be of benefit during this time. Plenty of focus is placed on the sacrum and upper abdomen to ensure as much circulation is being pumped to your womb. 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, and often want solitude.
Pulsing and rezobo techniques will also be used.
Pulsing is a beautifully gentle method of shifting these feelings from within and allowing them to surface and be rocked out of your body.
The Rebozo is a traditional shawl woven and used by Mexican women. Traditional Mexican midwives use the Rebozo to do the manteada, a rocking massage technique. The Rebozo massage is very relaxing, it balances and relaxes the pelvis, lower back, womb and ligaments; allowing more room for the womb to settle into her rightful place.
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.

I first met Tania back in May when we had been trying for a baby after a a year of trying and a miscarriage before that. She gave me loads of great advice and new things to try in my diet. I had reflexology and fertility massage and I am now 14 weeks pregnant, it only took a few months to work its magic. I would highly recommend Zenses, the garden room is amazing and so relaxing it was my little bit of me time and totally relaxed and distressed me. Tania is very knowledgeable in what she does and a really lovely person. I will forever be grateful for all she done without her I wouldn’t be expecting our little miracle.
