Women’s Health Massage

Although the training I carried out was called Fertility Massage, for this post I have decided to include it all under Women’s Health massage, as its aim is so much more than aiding fertility.

Last year I trained with two lovely souls learning techniques to help women during their conception journey, but also offering a helping hand with many other conditions. To name a few, these include:

  • Problems with periods (irregular, heavy, painful or clotty)
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, fibroids
  • Digestive issues (Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Chron’s disease, constipation)
  • Lower back pain
  • Stress and anxiety

The training in itself was empowering, self-discovering and extremely nurturing. Alongside a small group of women, I had the privilege to explore women’s health and menstrual cycles and learn more about myself and how to support others. It was what you could call a “Red Tent”, with incredibly caring and powerful women, all sharing their experiences as a woman and all with a deep desire to help other women to feel more empowered and balanced.

During this training I learned to connect deeper that I have ever done during my practice and also to hold the space for true transformation. The techniques are gentle yet deeply powerful and transforming. With a combination of different techniques (rocking, massage, energy work, wrapping), I aim to release blockages, physical, energetic and/or emotional, to allow the body to heal.

The message I took from this training is how little we often know about our own cycles (talking for myself here!) and how much you learn about yourself when you tune in. This treatment helps you to connect at a deeper level, to listen to what goes on inside you and how to be kind to yourself.

Every woman could benefit from this treatment, if you are ready to give it a try, please get in touch, it would be lovely to work with you.

If you are drawn to train as a Fertility Massage therapist, I can highly recommend Fertility Massage Therapy.
