Abdo-Pelvic Therapy

…Soothing the center, Relaxing the core…

Abdo-Pelvic

The pelvis and abdomen are key support centers for the body but are often rarely thought about in terms of treatment. These are the areas we use the most, where our major organs reside, where we digest the food we need for energy and where our children grow from so we really believe the benefits of massage in this area can be incredibly helpful.

We have indepth knowledge and lasting experience with abdominal pelvic massage so we see each body and each person uniquely – no two massage sessions are ever the same as we focus on your needs and not a set routine, using techniques from a variety of traditions to find a practice that suits you.


Treatment

In terms of fertility, abdominal pelvic massage can help to increase circulation to the testes, uterus, ovaries, and Fallopian tubes, bringing more nutrients and oxygen to the area, increasing hormone delivery and improving sperm or egg health. It can promote better hormonal balance, allowing more positive hormones such as serotonin and oxytocin to be released which can lower anxiety and stress which has a large impact on fertility and the fertility cycle. Massage can also help to break down scar tissue which may be helpful if you have been effected by cysts or had operations in the area.

Massage can also be an incredible boon to ladies suffering from long term chronic conditions such as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, Endometriosis and fibroids due to its ability to release endorphins, a hormone which naturally reduces your body’s perception of pain and it’s capacity to reduce long term tension or trapped nerves which can increase discomfort. In addition to this massage can help to break down scar tissue and adhesions, help to drain stale blood and break down and eliminate blood clots. Perhaps most importantly for many sufferers, massage can also help to relieve tension in the ligaments that suspend the uterus and ovaries within the abdomen, which may give relief to spasms and the pain caused by scar tissue or adhesions in the area.

Abdominal pelvic massage can be a fantastic addition to a pre or post childbirth plan as it can reduce stretch marks and scarring, relax the surface tissues and give more elasticity to the important structure of the perineum. The relaxation of tension in this area can also bring relief to discomfort and pain and promote healing through better circulation and delivery of healing cells. It is also believed that massage helps with easing tension from old emotional trauma and allows women to connect to their womb and future babies. It is something which a couple can learn to do together to increase their intimate bond and encourage the child they wish to have – much like certain African tribes who call forth their babies from the spiritual aether into the mothers womb (Read more about this here).

Finally Abdominal pelvic massage may also be a valuable tool in aiding digestive complaints including chronic problems such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Crohn’s Disease. Massage can help to clear congestion and blockages – encouraging better elimination from the digestive tract. It also helps to release trapped wind and bloating and eases passage through the bowel. Lower back pain and sciatica can also be helped through massage in this area, releasing trigger points (knots), tension and impinged nerves.
