Self Massage for Fertility

Self Fertility Massage
Massage for fertility is a very helpful natural fertility treatment that has been used for centuries all over the world. The great thing about fertility massage is it can be used in conjunction with traditional treatments; like in vitro fertilization. The use of fertility massage leading up to your IVF procedure may help to increase your success rate of implantation.

Benefits of Self Massage for Fertility
The main benefit of self fertility massage is the fact that you become involved in your healing journey and you begin to take charge of your wellbeing and fertility. By doing so, you connect your mind and body and allow healing forces to create heath at the mental and physical level. Self fertility massage also helps your emotional wellbeing by assisting you in dealing with your fears and anxieties about your reproductive health. Physically the benefits of self fertility massage are many. Because you are massaging yourself, you will feel many areas of tension within your lower abdomen that may not be detected by a practitioner because you can feel your body better from the inside as well as through intuitive touch, and inner feeling. Self massage for fertility helps in cases of pain from endometriosis, fallopian tubes that are twisted, ovulation pain, and other painful concerns. All the reproductive organs are positively affected by this type of massage because it increases blood flow to the ovaries supplying the eggs with oxygen rich blood. Additionally, the massage helps digestion and elimination of toxins from the body. Even the excess hormones that may cause damage are flushed out. It is also essential that feces are moved out of the human system regularly in order not to cause fecal pressure on the reproductive organs. Self massage for fertility assists in this process.

How to Locate your Reproductive Organs

The Ovaries
