Holistic Fertility™ Massage Treatments for ART

When you have fertility issues and you choose to use Western Medicine Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) such as Intra-Uterine Insemination (IUI), In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) or Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET), it can take a toll on your mind, body, spirit and emotions.  Thus, it's important to get as much support as possible.


A Holistic Fertility™ Treatment helps to facilitate the health, well-being, and natural fertility enhancement of my clients using a holistic or "whole being" approach.  This holistic approach includes therapies such as a Mayan abdominal massage for fertility or fertility massage and other modalities which facilitate the balancing, healing and integrating of our mind, body, spirit and emotions.  

So, when clients come to me who are trying to conceive and are having fertility issues, I work to address not only the physical, but the mental, spiritual and emotional aspect of each individual.  

As a result, my clients become more relaxed and balanced, their overall health and well-being is improved, their fertility is enhanced and they achieve their dream of conceiving and having a healthy baby.​

Can this treatment cause a miscarriage?

No. Because all Holistic Fertility treatments are based on an individual client's fertility cycle, any post-ovulation treatments are focused on relaxation and maintaining a pregnancy.  But if something does not feel right during your treatment you should tell me immediately.

How many treatments do I need?

Each client is different and depending on your holistic fertility and overall health history, physical assessment, and participation in suggested self-care techniques and life-style changes, and how you respond to treatment, the treatment frequency can vary.



If you want to conceive naturally, it is optimally beneficial for a woman to prepare her body before conception.  Typically and at minimum, this would mean you would be treated once per week for 3 cycles.  Treatment would be adjusted accordingly during your menses.

If you are actively trying to get pregnant, optimally, you would come in for 2 treatments during the post-menses (spotting okay) to pre-ovulation phase.  And post-ovulation treatments once a week that would be more focused on relaxation and receptivity to healthy implantation.

Again, it is imperative that you participate in your health and well-being to maintain the effects of all healing work.

What is "self-care" and why does it help?

Each client is instructed on how to perform a self-care abdominal massage for herself. Also, the client may be given other holistic fertility suggestions as part of her self-care as well. These holistic fertility suggestions may include life-style and dietary changes, exercises, and other home self-care techniques.  Doing self-care massage daily for a minimum of 10-15 minutes a day, as well as any other holistic fertility suggestions, provides the individual with the ability to improve her symptoms, in between appointments with me.

How well does Holistic Fertility Treatment support fertility enhancement?

In my 12 years of working with fertility clients, I’ve personally found that an estimated 50%-75% of woman who have been unsuccessful in conceiving, eventually conceive after a succession of Holistic Fertility Treatments and suggested self-care techniques and lifestyle changes are fully incorporated in the woman’s life. Once the uterus is in its optimal position, there is improved homeostasis to support and enhance fertility. And if NLP with Hypnotherapy is added to the Holistic Fertility Treatments to remove any mental or emotional blocks to getting and staying pregnant, the success rate is even higher.  And when the partner is included in the whole process, we find fertility is increased further!

How much does the Holistic Fertility Enhancement Treatment cost?

The overall cost associated with a couple’s fertility journey can range from minimal to exorbitant. The cost associated with my Fertility Enhancement Treatments is typically far less than traditional medical treatments. For a breakdown of my Holistic Fertility Treatment pricing, click here.
