The Mayan Abdominal Massage is the treatment that made me a “Fertility Specialist.” I learned it many years ago while traveling in the Belize, Guatemala and Mexico. Here is a link to the story I wrote about that journey and discovering the Mayan Massage.

I recommend that women get the Mayan Massage at least 1-3 months prior to conception. It involves a massage and alignment of the back and spine. The uterus hangs inside the pelvis by 8 ligaments. Therefore, any misalignment of the low back and spine can affect the alignment of the uterus and ovaries. Once I align the spine, I will then massage the abdomen and align the uterus and ovaries. It usually only takes one treatment to do this. There should be at least one or two periods after the Mayan Massage so that the uterus can clean out all the old blood and toxins.   Then, the new lining will be full of fresh blood and nutrients which is much better for implantation.

In my first post, A Naturopathic Approach to Fertility Enhancement, I spoke about the several vital states that I take with my patients (and their partners) to prepare for and enhance fertility naturally. 

In my second post, I touched upon the Detox Stage

Stay tuned for article #4 where I'll dive deeper into this 5 Stage Approach and discuss the importance of balancing and building.
