National Fertility Week: Femoral Massage
This week is National Fertility Awarenss Week. Especially close to my heart, helping woman get pregnant naturally has been my specialty for many years. This week, I will review the many ways to help increase fertility in both woman and men.
There are many different approaches to massage and applications of it. "Massage Therapy" is a holistic procedure that affects all systems of the body; digestive, elimination, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic, endocrine and nervous systems. Many of today's health problems arise from stress. Because stress upsets the delicate integral balance of all your body's functions, regaining this balance requires a holistic approach.
Massage Therapy and Lymphatic Drainage Massage not only treats those parts of you which are a problem, but also affects the whole of your metabolism through normalizing your circulatory, muscular and nervous systems and their interdependent functioning.
Massage is effective for the whole system. This can be done with soothing massage oils or relaxing body lotions in order for the practitioner's hands to "glide" over the body with smooth, relaxing strokes.
Learn how to give a massage. This step by step method will help you learn just how to make your subject increase blood flow to the uterus, nourishes the lining and helps you feel great!
The Femoral Massage increases blood flow to the pelvis allowing more nourishment to the uterus and ovaries. This massage may be more effective when performed by a partner.
1. Apply pressure with your fingertips to the artery just beneath the inguinal groove (the crease in your groin between your thigh and lower abdomen). This is the femoral artery, which comes from the iliac artery. The iliac artery has branches that supply blood to the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries.
2. Feel with your fingertips, the pulsation in the artery. As you compress it, it will stop. Hold the pressure for 30 to 45 seconds. The blood is now backing up and increasing the pressure in the iliac arteries and flooding the pelvic organs with more blood.
3. Release the pressure and let the blood flow normally. Releasing this hold should allow you to feel a sensation of warmth rushing down your leg as the blood supply returns to the lower extremity.
4. Repeat on the opposite side. Perform this femoral massage three times in a row, twice a day, up to ovulation (or the day before the embryos are transferred).
