Fertility massage when trying to conceive
If you’re trying to get pregnant, then this page covers information about fertility massage, but you’ll also want to read the rest of our information to help you when you’re trying to conceive. There are lots of information about infertility on the fertility reflexology page here, so check that out when you’ve finished. But, suffice to say, at Essential Feeling we specialise in working with couples who are attempting to conceive and are at the point where they’re thinking that all may be lost.

Questions & Answers
What is a fertility massage?
Fertility massage is a unique series of massage techniques that work the key areas to help women who are trying to conceive.
What areas does fertility massage work?
No session is exactly the same as we make sure we’re working the areas that are specifically causing you problems when you’re grappling with infertility. The main areas we’ll cover are you back and abdominals down to the top of your pubic bone to stimulate your uterus.
When should you do fertility massages?
You can do them throughout your cycle.
Will working this area have a negative impact if I’m already pregnant?
Imagine you’re in the kitchen and you bend over and press your stomach against the counter top. This is the kind of pressure that we’ll be using in this area and so this is why we’re happy to give you fertility massage throughout your cycle because if it were going to have any negative effect on you trying to conceive, then pretty much so would daily life. Our bodies are built to withstand daily life through a healthy pregnancy.
When should I come for my fertility massage?
Anytime is fine. We work with women and couples at all stages of their fertility journey, from just about ready to start trying for a baby, all the way through to multiple attempts at IVF and other assisted conception options.
Who will be doing my sessions?
Karen is our specialist in fertility reflexology and all things fertility wise. Charlie is our massage therapist. Reviews about them are on our reviews page and you may find yourself in either of their capeable hands.
Is there a consultation process?
Yes. We’ll send you over a consultation form on email prior to your appointment, You can either return this to us on email prior to your session, or if it’s easier to print this out and bring it along with you to your appointment, then that’s fine too.
When you arrive we’ll chat through your consultation form to fully understand everything and then we’ll develop your very own treatment plan tailored to your needs.
