About Abdominal Massage
Abdominal/Fertility Massage and 'Mayan' or 'Arvigo' massage, is an effective method for helping with any level of painful or clotty periods and for those with diagnoses of 'retrograde' or 'tilted' uterus/cervix. It helps relieve pre-menstrual symptoms of bowel pain, constipation and painful legs as well as ovulation and pelvic pain. Involving targeted massage of the upper and lower abdomen, it helps to encourage realignment of the reproductive organs by increasing blood flow to the supportive ligaments of the ovaries and uterus.
We do two things - we teach the Mayan or 'Arvigo' self-care massage techniques which can be used daily at home to improve symptoms. We also offer Fertility Massage sessions which encourage abdominal fascial release are helpful for anyone with any of the above symptoms trying to conceive.
Recently we have been treating patients from the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary's Pelvic Pain unit who have benefited greatly from a relief in symptoms and pain.
