There are many underlying issues that can contribute to, and result in, infertility. Unfortunately, infertility is a challenge that a lot of couples are struggling with. There are many options to be explored for boosting fertility and increasing chances for conception.
One option that works for many people trying to overcome infertility problems is plain old massage therapy.
How does Massage Therapy boost fertility?
When applying massage therapy to fertility, the aim is to enhance the activity of the reproductive organs through relaxation and an improved sense of well being. The goal is to work towards a maximal level of overall health, to produce an ideal environment for conception.
However, there is more to it than that. Massage therapy can be helpful in many situations involving infertility.
What specific issues can Massage Therapy help with?
There are various infertility problems that massage therapy can help treat, for both women and men.
Some examples are:
- Muscle relaxation
- Stress relief
- Hormonal balance
- Blocked fallopian tubes
- Poor Circulation
Massage therapy can be an excellent way to give your muscles that feeling of deep relaxation that is essential for the body to heal and cope with adversity. Deep muscle relaxation promotes restoration and regeneration.
Stress can play a major role in infertility. It can throw off your hormonal balance and create a hostile environment in your body. Then the infertility issues caused by stress, lead to more stress, and I think you can probably see where this is going.
Massage therapy releases endorphins in your system to achieve peace of mind and body.
Fertility massage therapy triggers the expulsion of toxins from the body by way of the lymphatic system, which is a network of organs and tissues that help rid the body of impurities.
This process helps bolster the immune system.
Massage therapy aids in the promotion of a healthy connection between the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland, and the ovaries. The hypothalamus and the pituitary gland regulate hormones, regulate physiological function, and metabolism.
Blocked Fallopian Tubes
Infertility can be caused by a blockage or issue in the fallopian tubes brought on by adhesions or endometriosis.
Adhesions occur when organs or tissue that are not meant to be connected, become attached due to internal scarring.
Similarly, endometriosis can also create internal scar tissue when endometrial tissues start to form outside of the uterus. This can result in a twisting of the fallopian tubes.
Massage therapy can help break up these adhesions. Acupuncture is an excellent accompaniment to massage therapy for treating issues of this nature.
Poor circulation can lead to fertility complications. Massage therapy stimulates blood flow, improving circulation throughout the body and most importantly the uterus.
Good circulation is crucial for ensuring cells and organs get the oxygen they need to properly function.
Fertility massage increases blood flow to the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries.
Registered massage therapy can help your muscles relax promoting better blood flow through tight muscles and improve blood flow to our organs allowing us to heal quicker, become more resilient to external stressors and to decrease mental stress and anxiety.
