Fertility Therapies & Yoga

Essense Fertility offers a personalised approach to your journey and welcomes you to an initial consultation. Jan will help you gain insights into lifestyle, outlook, relationship and any emotional blocks to intimacy. The session will include your medical history, how you are currently feeling about your situation, and your ability to cope with stress. Your assessment may include intuitive colour readings and numerology at a later stage if further information regarding subtle energy patterns would be helpful.

Complementary Therapies

Complementary therapies provide a supportive role to medical treatment rather than an alternative and can help to prepare you for the occurrence of pregnancy. In addition, appointments may be longer, enabling you to express your feelings and concerns fully in order to explore any possible blocks to conception. If you are already under medical care, you may be advised to consult your doctor before continuing with some of the therapies. In situations where IVF or medical treatment has begun, you may choose to try complementary therapies to optimise your health. As holistic health practitioners, we will not attempt to diagnose or treat any medical condition, but will refer you to the GP if necessary.

The Treatments

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy massage is an effective choice for stress management and relaxation. The soothing strokes can ease tight muscles, reduce tension and aid digestion. Aromatherapy massage can help to stimulate the immune system and the healthy circulation of hormones.

The essential oils used have a profound effect on the body, mind and emotions, stress and cortisol levels. Rose essential oil is particularly beneficially for inducing the feminine energy needed for conception whilst being helpful for soothing emotions that are commonly associated with infertility and miscarriage, inspiring renewed confidence.

Butterfly Touch Massage

Butterfly Touch Massage is gentle and non-invasive, yet powerful as the effects occur through the lightest  touch of the fingertips. It is especially helpful for fertility or during pregnancy to help restore energy to the whole body. The massage strokes are based on the work of Wilhelm Reich who understood the natural pulsation of life energy that is felt through emotion. His daughter Eva worked alongside him and believed that insufficient life energy in the womb was one of the possible causes of infertility.

Fertility Massage Therapy

Fertility Massage Therapy uses a method known as pulsing which was devised as a holistic body work therapy to release emotional tension and trauma. Wilhelm Reich believed that emotional stress could be released from the body along with physical tension. Fertility Massage Therapy is the first treatment of its kind and focuses on the physical and spiritual aspects of the womb. It can help release stored emotions that may be causing a blockage, increase circulation and help with endometriosis and releasing scar tissue from the fallopian tubes. Fertility Massage is the perfect complementary therapy to yoga and further deepens the connection to your womb and feminine energy.

Other Treatments

Other treatments specifically for relief of stress include the deeply relaxing Lavera uplifting and Aroma facials, Indian head massage, Reiki and Sound healing.

Yoga & Meditation

Dru Yoga has a unique style that is perfectly suited for fertility. Its graceful, flowing style will empower you with the life force of nature, reconnecting you with your own innate wisdom. Yoga helps core strengthening and balancing of the muscles and connective-tissue that support the reproductive organs.

During the practise of fertility yoga, each pose naturally brings you to a sense of deeper relaxation and stillness of the mind. This is a key part of meditation and inner peace. From this place, you can perceive more clarity as to the needs of your body, mind and emotions.

Fertility Support

Yoga is excellent for reducing stress levels, encouraging overall fitness, calming the mind and balancing each of the systems of the body that support fertility. There are endless benefits to Dru yoga giving it true therapeutic value.

Dru Yoga comprises specially selected postures and sequences that can help to support fertility in the following ways:

  • Balance the endocrine system and fertility hormones.
  • Support and nourish the reproductive system by freeing tension from the pelvis and encouraging circulation.
  • Improve oxygenation of the whole body
  • Reduce the stress hormone cortisol, allowing more readily available progesterone
  • Re-set the fight or flight stress response. (Awareness of subtle energy can help to realign the sacral chakra of relationship which is affected by worry and doubt)
  • Release tension, frustration and anxiety from the mind, body and emotions.
  • Induce the relaxation response of the nervous system through conscious deep breathing and yoga nidra (yogic sleep).

Meditation

Benefits Include:

  • De-activating the stress response.
  • Learning how to respond rather than react to stressful situations
  • Deeper, more restorative sleep
  • Taking time for yourself to move from doing to being
  • Dropping into deeper level of stillness
  • Helping you to maintain perspective
  • Get in touch with your inner wisdom and intuition

Your Daily Routine

Including a meditation practise into your daily routine, is invaluable in reducing stress levels. Constant stress increases your levels of prolactin, cortisol and adrenalin. Adrenalin sends a message to the body that this is not the best time for conception and prevents progesterone from being used effectively. High levels of prolactin are produced by the pituitary gland adversely affecting fertility. An increase in stress hormones inhibits the release of LH (Luteinizing hormone) and FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone). These are important for the initiation of oestrogen and testosterone possibly affecting ovulation and sperm count.

Feel Empowered & Revitalised

Each of the therapies offered can be used alongside medical treatment, whether you planning to conceive naturally or with assisted techniques.
Essense Fertility can leave you feeling empowered and revitalised with the use of yoga, meditation and specialised massage techniques. Simply choose the options that appeal to you or ask Jan for recommendation.  As you feel calmer and less overwhelmed you will be able to step back and see more clearly the next steps to take. Discover a renewed sense of peace wherever you happen to be on your fertility journey.
