Abdominal Massage founder, Dr. Rosita Arvigo reported in 2002, as quoted in Massage and Bodywork Magazine, “We are finding that about 30% of female infertility is due to a misplaced uterus which can be corrected. It is certainly worth a try before resorting to invasive and expensive medical procedures.” Recent reports indicate that of every 10 women that seek ATMAM for fertility treatment, 5-7 will eventually become pregnant following a series of intensive professional treatments along with lifestyle changes and diligent self care.
We’ll discuss your particular case in depth at your first appointment. I tailor your fertility treatment to you specifically and will provide you with tools to continue working toward fertility enhancement in the comfort of your own home. A brief overview of common fertility challenges addressed by ATMAM is presented here.
Proper reproductive system function depends on a hormonal feedback loop between the hypothalamus and the reproductive organs. Via the bloodstream, the ovaries communicate with the brain and vice versa. The brain receives the message that it is time to send down a reproductive hormone like estrogen or progesterone, the uterine lining and the ovaries in turn send back a chemical message that the appropriate amount of hormones has been sent and duly received. Circulatory pathology induced by a displaced uterus, however, prevents these messages from reaching the hypothalamus and it either produces more hormones than physiological needed because it doesn’t get the message to stop or the message that hormones are needed is never received to begin with.
A displaced uterus denied a full supply of oxygen, nutrients, hormones, nerve transmission, lymphatic fluids, and venous drainage may be too weak and congested to fulfill its reproductive destiny. Once the uterus is in its proper place and maintained through self care and elimination of muscle spasms in the low back and sacrum, the stage is set to achieve and maintain pregnancy. In cases of blocked fallopian tubes, abdominal massage can address both the cause, if related to chronic infection (see Reproductive System Imbalance), as well as assists in freeing restrictions through diligent professional treatments and self care.
Partner treatment is recommended to free restrictions and blockages in nerves and circulation surrounding the male reproductive system, especially in cases of any past trauma to the abdomen, lower back, sacrum, or tail bone. Increased nerve, blood, and lymph flow can improve count and morphology as well as sensation. A number of vitamins and herbs may also be helpful. We’ll discuss your particular case in depth at your first appointment and I will teach you how to teach your partner abdominal massage.
If you’re moving towards IUI or even Invitro, be sure to contact me for a series of treatments first as your odds of success may be significantly improved by first centering and balancing your reproductive organs.
