--Abdominal Fertility Massage:–
Many civilizations throughout history have practiced adominal and uterine massage to help prepare the body for conception and promote healthy pregnancy. Abdominal Fertility massage can help clear fallopian tubes, ideally position the uterus, and restore the body to it’s natural equilibrium all while supporting an intentional mother in her body’s inherent reproductive strength (please see article links below). Many women with fertility chronic fertility problems have been able to conceive after several sessions of soft tissue manipulation of the abdomen and pelvis. This also helps to boost immunity and regulate hormone production. In addition, one of the most scientifically documented benefits of massage is the reduction of stress, which is a proven obstacle to healthy conception.
Your therapist has been trained to know the exact spots to focus on to nurture expecting mothers, as well as potential reflexology points to avoid. Massage during pregnancy is a vital support to women as their bodies undergo major shifts and changes. Regular massage can reduce emotional and muscular tension, ease cramping and spasms, and increase blood and lymph circulation and decrease swelling. It’s so important to nurture and support your body through the many magical stages of pregnancy, and we’re here to do just that!
Your need for physical nurturing and support do not end when your baby is delivered. Labor recovery, disrupted sleep patterns and sleep deprivation, the physical demands of nursing, and the unfamiliar muscular strain of carrying your little one all take a toll on your body. Sanctuary has thus created “Mom-ssage”®, a massage modality designed to support a woman’s body in this unique stage or postpartum reproduction. “Mom-ssage”® targets many of the key muscles areas that are problematic in 90% of new mothers, and incorporates strokes and reflexology work to promote healthful sleep, circulation, and digestion after the physical changes of pregnancy and challenges of labor and delivery.
