By Clare Blake
A fertility journey can be an emotional roller-coaster with a sense of losing control over your own body and feeling disconnected and many women search for a natural approach to support them and boost their chances of having a baby.
Fertility Massage Therapy™ is a nourishing blend of modalities, that when combined, bring harmony and balance to the reproductive, digestive and sacral areas. On a much deeper and probably more important level, it also reawakens and reconnects women to their bodies, especially their womb.
Womb massage has lineage dating back thousands of years. Egyptian women massaged their wombs to heal themselves, Norse traditions also mention goddesses rubbing bellies to heal. Many clients from India, Africa, Russia and China have remarked that women in their homeland perform similar womb or belly massages. By massaging directly over the lower abdomen, circulation of lymph, blood and energy is increased, helping women who experience ‘cold’ or ‘stagnant’ conditions such as painful periods, endometriosis, fibroids and constipation.
Womb massage is just a part of the therapy, also included within a session are Rebozo and Pulsing techniques. Pulsing focuses on gently rocking and releasing the physical and emotional tensions held within the body, whilst the Rebozo will be ceremonially wrapped to enable the woman to feel safe and held.
Together these all create a nourishing flow of feminine energy, leaving the client feeling whole, centred and nurtured on their fertility journey.
Clare also runs 4 day Practitioner courses, offering an intensive Practical, Theory & Spiritual course for practitioners wishing to specialise in Reproductive Health & Fertility. The next one takes place November 20-23.
