Katrina has been trained by Clare Spink, founder of Fertility Massage Therapy.
Fertility Massage Therapy (FMT) is a powerful blend of cutting edge techniques that affect both the physiological and psychological issues relating to fertility.
It is a non-invasive therapy which aims to facilitate the ideal positioning of the womb, enabling the natural flow of energy and blood. It is a gentle yet deep treatment that addresses a number of areas of tension, breaking down scar tissue, alignment and congestion. By massaging the lumbar and gluteal area any tightness and tension is released from the soft tissue, ensuring the ligaments that support the organs of the lower abdominal cavity, particularly the reproductive organs are not under strain. Massaging the sacral area can release any congestion of the nerves at the point they exit the sacral bone. In doing so the nerves supplying the reproductive system are not obstructed, Lymph flow is improved and toxins flushed.
During the massage, scar tissue is broken down with the aim of releasing hardened waste material that has accumulated in the gut over many years. This encourages a natural movement within the gut, clearing physical and emotional blockages. As well as the obvious benefits of that as the majority of Serotonin is manufactured in the digestive system, levels are likely to rise.
80% of our immune system lives in the gut, and as immunity, digestion and fertility are linked, it is important to work this whole abdominal area.
The treatment involves abdominal sacral massage, pulsing, trigger point work, rebozo techniques. Guided visualisations, reflexology and Reiki/healing can also be incorporated as deemed necessary.
