Womb Massage 

FIND YOUR CENTER

When the uterus is in proper position, it is open to receiving the optimal amount of oxygen and nutrient rich blood available. Detoxifying lymphatic flow and nerve communication is also increased, encouraging optimal uterine health. 

Womb Massage, Sobada de Martiz para matriz caida, also know as 
Maya Abdominal Therapy  is an age old traditional healing therapy. It is noninvasive, massage technique that gently manipulates the muscles and connective tissue that hold the organs in place. The intention is to guide organs (such as the uterus) to their proper position, releasing physical and emotional congestion and blockages. 

How does it work?

When internal organs such as the uterus are in proper position, they are open to receiving all of the nutrient/oxygen rich blood available. It also allows for optimizing detoxifying lymphatic flow, nerve communication  and chi. These are all essential in preventing, and healing disease. This therapy aims at getting the reproductive system in its optimum state of health.

Causes of a Displaced Uterus/ Matriz Caida


 The uterus is suspended by ligaments, which allow it to  double in weight during menses, stretch for pregnancy, and move freely when the bladder and colon are full.  These ligaments can weaken and loosen causing the uterus to move out of position. Some common reasons of a displaced uterus are:
 

  • Falls, car accidents, blows to the pelvic region

  • Wearing high heel shoes

  • Running on cement surfaces

  • High impact aerobics, gymnastics, dancing,  horseback riding

  • Carrying heavy burdens during menstruation, and too soon after child birth

  • Weak  pelvic floor muscles

  • Surgery to the pelvic region

  • Chronic constipation

  • Emotional armoring from sexual abuse or rape

How does Maya abdominal therapy/womb massage work?

This external massage gently lifts and guides the uterus into its optimal position in the lower pelvis. The uterus is held in position by over 10 ligaments. Ligaments, when stressed or strained cause the uterus to become mal-positioned. If the uterus is mal-positioned, women experience a multitude of symptoms.

How quickly should I expect a change? 

Depending on the severity of the problem, it may take as little as one session and as long as several months for the uterine position to be corrected and for the ligaments to gain enough strength and elasticity for it to stay in place. We will be able to make custom recommendations on follow up sessions.  

Women often report a rapid improvement in symptoms and sense of wellbeing when self-care is performed regularly

Can I incorporate Maya abdominal therapy/womb massage while undergoing IUI/IVF?

Yes! Womb massage and herbal vaginal steam baths highly compliment IVF & IUI. Book as far in advance before starting IVF/IUI and up to one week before the transfer.  

I've had a Hysterectomy - how does Maya abdominal therapy help?

People who have had hysterectomies benefit greatly from Maya Abdominal Massage/womb massage as well. The technique improves circulation in and around the area of the scar and allows for proper flow of the lymph, which often becomes blocked after surgery, resulting in swelling, burning and deep aching pains in the pelvis. By using womb massage techniques on a regular basis, scar tissue will be prevented from forming our reduced in the pelvis after surgery. Ligaments and other remaining organs are benefited from improving circulatory flow to the pelvis.

How does Maya abdominal therapy/womb massage help with Cesarean births? 

For people who have had a cesarean birth, this technique is beneficial for breaking up scar tissue in the same way it works for women who have had hysterectomies. It also accelerates healing and helps clear away inflammation and bloating. It may relieve pain caused by the scar tissue. It is recommended to have the womb massage 3 months post belly birth. 

How does Maya abdominal therapy/womb massage help with digestion? 

Many anxieties and emotions through life are stored in our body's tissues and organs. A very common place is in the organs of the digestive system. Those so called "butterflies in your stomach" can lead to constipation, indigestion, heartburn, gastritis, and eventually to Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Gasto Esophageal Reflux (GERD), Crohn's, and more. 

Stresses, emotions, surgery, injury or posture cause the small intestine and colon to be "twisted or kinked" leading to blockages in the flow of peristalsis. Surrounding fascia creates adhesions that mal-position organs and impede proper blood flow and enzyme secretions. Maya Abdominal Massage helps to break down fascial adhesions or scar tissue and removes any "kinks" in the digestive tract. Often there is a dramatic improvement after just one session when combined with proper diet and self-care. 

Will womb massage help with digestion problems following abdominal surgery? 

Scar tissue and fascial adhesions can often cause problems with digestion after abdominal surgery. Maya Abdominal Massage helps to break down the scar tissue and adhesion from past or present surgeries. A few sessions combined with castor oil packs, diet, and self care are often used depending on the restriction for optimal success.  Abdominal massage is contraindicated immediately following abdominal surgery, allow 4-6 weeks or at the consent of your physician. 

Is Uterine Massage recommended for everyone? 

Almost every woman, even those who have had hysterectomies can benefit greatly from Maya Uterine Massage through improved circulation, lymphatic drainage and a decrease in the formation of scar tissue.

Uterine massage is not performed: 

  • Within the first 6 weeks following a normal vaginal delivery or the first 3 months after a cesarean birth.

  • For a woman using an IUD for birth control

  • Active infection or if cancer is present or suspected anywhere in the pelvis, or the client is undergoing chemotherapy for this condition

  • During pregnancy

  • Hiatal Hernia - gentle touch only
