Fertility Enhancing Massage (FEM)™
The Fertility Enhancing Massage Protocol
Exclusively at Pulling Down the Moon
Fertility massage is a cutting edge field, with far-reaching benefits that are still being explored. At Pulling Down the Moon®,we’ve developed specific techniques for working with the body after seeing thousands of fertility clients for over a decade. Our FEM Protocol™ is a five-part series using massage and related techniques to enhance the health and functioning of the pelvic and abdominal organs, and to promote the client’s mental, emotional, and physical well-being.
The five parts of the protocol focus on cleansing and detoxification, enhancing reproductive circulation, oxygenating the pelvic organs, and combating stress. Benefits may include:
- promoting egg quality by improving the follicular environment and increasing it’s supply of oxygen-rich blood
- lowering hormone disruption through stress management and clearing lymphatic congestion (a common storehouse for excess hormones and toxins)
- supporting uterine lining and alignment through melting abdominal scar tissue, clearing circulatory pathways, and releasing structural tension patterns
- encouraging relaxation and an overall sense of well-being during your fertility journey
And don’t worry, men are always welcome and can also benefit from the FEM.
The FEM Protocol™ supports & is appropriate for:
Increasing follicle/egg quality DOR (diminished ovarian reserve)
PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome)
Endometriosis Thin Uterine Lining
Amenhorrea (absence of period)
Natural Fertility Cycles
Assisted Reproductive Technology (IUI, IVF, FET, etc.)
Women’s Health Concerns
Session 1: CLEANSE THE BODY™
Toxic buildup can create inflammation in the body, robbing it of its natural ability to balance hormones,build immunity, and create energy. In this session, lymphatic drainage, chi nei sang techniques, and therapeutic grade essential oils help support the body’s detoxification systems while massage calms the body and mind.
Session 2: ENHANCE THE BLOOD™
Blood is the body’s natural healing agent, and is vital to the development of the egg and uterine lining. Unfortunately, many stressors trigger tension in the body, threatening its ability to properly distribute the blood. In this session, myofascial massage, artery massage, and thermal therapy will increase circulation and revitalize the pelvic organs.
Session 3: OPEN THE BREATH™
As we draw in oxygen more deeply and easily, we begin to receive nourishment and renewal. In this session breathing exercises work in tandem with profound abdominal massage techniques; a powerful synergy of internal and external movement works together to melt adhesions, clear stagnation, and bring more oxygen to the pelvic organs.
Session 4: RELAX & INTEGRATE™
Chronic stress depletes the body’s energy and resources. During challenging times, the need to create relaxation, pleasure, and self-nurturing is fundamental to good health. In this session, Swedish massage, gentle abdominal work, and vibrational therapy work in tandem to balance the adrenal glands and create harmony in the body.
Session 5: UNWIND THE MIND™
The suspense of the two-week-wait can be filled with anticipation, excitement, and expectancy, but may also be clouded by doubts, questions, and unknowns. This session was created to be a safe oasis from post-ovulation stress, boosting immune and endocrine function, while supporting a potential pregnancy.
