Benefits for Women
Normally the uterus leans slightly over the bladder in the center of the pelvis, about one and a half inches, above the pubic bone. It is held in this position by muscles, the vaginal wall, and ligaments that attach it to the back, front, and sides of the pelvis. Uterine ligaments are made to stretch to accommodate a growing fetus inside and to move freely when the bladder or bowel is full. The ligaments and muscles can weaken and loosen, causing the uterus to fall downward, forward, backwards and to either side.
A uterus in any of these positions is called tilted or prolapsed. Modern medicine has little or nothing to offer woman with this problem. Options may include using the birth control pill, muscle relaxants, or surgery and woman are generally told, “your uterus is tipped, but that is normal and don’t worry about it.” Yet women have a laundry list of physical and emotional symptoms that can be addressed and prevented with these simple, non-invasive massage techniques. When reproductive organs shift, they can constrict normal flow of blood and lymph, and disrupt nerve connections. Just a few extra ounces sitting on blood and lymph vessels can cause havoc throughout the different systems of the body. By shifting the uterus back into place, homeostasis, or the natural balance of the body, is restored in the pelvic area and the surrounding organs. Toxins are flushed and nutrients that help to tone tissue and balance hormones are restored to normal order. This is essential for healthy pregnancy, labor and delivery.
Old adhesion from invasive treatments to the pelvic and abdominal area, including fibroids, endometriosis, and cesarean delivery are diminished when addressed by uterine massage. In addition, digestive, urinary and bladder problems can be helped.
