Dealing with infertility can be stressful. About 15 percent of couples can’t get pregnant, even after one year of unprotected sex. Other times, the woman may have multiple miscarriages or stillbirths.[ref]Infertility. MedlinePlus.[/ref]
Your doctor might suggest fertility drugs or surgery. But what if you want something more natural? Try a fertility massage.
This holistic treatment is gentle and safe. You’ll also feel great, thanks to these five benefits of fertility massages.
1. Reduces Stress
Any type of massage will relieve stress.[ref]Massage. University of Maryland Medical Center.[/ref] It will make you feel good as new!
The stress relief from a fertility massage can also help ovulation. Infertility, after all, is heavily linked to stress and anxiety. When you’re stressed out, your nervous system makes compounds called catecholamines. These substances are secreted along with alpha-amylase, a protein enzyme that’s linked to lower chances of pregnancy.
Stress management will also regulate your ovulation. This will make it easier to track your cycle, letting you know when you’re most fertile.[ref]Louis, Germaine M. Buck, Kirsten J. Lum, Rajeshwari Sundaram, Zhen Chen, Sungduk Kim, Courtney D. Lynch, Enrique F. Schisterman, and Cecilia Pyper. “Stress reduces conception probabilities across the fertile window: evidence in support of relaxation.” Fertility and sterility 95, no. 7 (2011): 2184-2189.[/ref] You won’t have to play guessing games.
Additionally, you’ll feel happier, calmer, and more relaxed.[ref]Massage. University of Maryland Medical Center.[/ref] The overall improvement in well-being will do wonders for your fertility.
2. Promotes Better Sleep
The less stressed you are, the more sleep you’ll get. Sleep disturbances and disorders will be alleviated. Even the quality of your rest can improve.[ref]Massage. University of Maryland Medical Center.[/ref]
A fertility massage will help just that. Better sleep will boost your reproductive health, increasing your chances of conception. It’ll also regulate menstruation and circadian rhythm, two major factors of fertility.[ref]Kloss, Jacqueline D., Michael L. Perlis, Jessica A. Zamzow, Elizabeth J. Culnan, and Clarisa R. Gracia. “Sleep, sleep disturbance, and fertility in women.” Sleep medicine reviews 22 (2015): 78-87.
Sleeping also encourages the production of growth hormones and cells. This enhances tissue repair and regeneration, ensuring that your body is ready to conceive.[ref]Neurohormonal Effects of Massage Therapy. Pacific College of Oriental Medicine.[/ref]
3. Improves Immunity
Your fertility depends on good health. Otherwise, your body won’t be able to release healthy eggs, let alone support a growing embryo.
This is why it’s so important to boost your immunity. You might be surprised to learn that a fertility massage can lend a hand. It’ll enhance the activity of the immune system, ensuring that you’re in tip-top shape.[ref]Massage. University of Maryland Medical Center.[/ref] Colds and sickness won’t stand in the way of your fertility.
4. Removes Toxins From Body
A fertility massage will also cleanse your body, making it easier to conceive. It works by clearing waste products through the lymphatic system.[ref]Massage. University of Maryland Medical Center.[/ref] These products include things like bacteria and toxins, which can hamper your health and fertility.
Because of this role, the lymphatic vessels are a vital part of immunity.[ref]Lymphatic system. BetterHealth Channel.[/ref] When your lymphatic system is happy – so are you!
5. Increases Blood Flow To Uterus
Fertility massage will stimulate your circulation, improving blood flow to all your important organs.[ref]Massage. University of Maryland Medical Center.[/ref] Of these, the most important one is the uterus, which is home to a fertilized egg. It’s responsible for nourishing the egg after implantation.
When the uterus gets healthy blood flow, it receives more oxygen.[ref]Uterus. MedlinePlus.[/ref] This will thicken the uterus lining and make it strong enough to support an egg. As a result, you’ll be more likely to get pregnant.
Of course, the improved blood flow will benefit all your organs. The rest of your reproductive system will flourish, while the rest of your body stays healthy.
