Infertility in women may stem from many different causes, yet one aspect remains constant – it can be extremely disheartening and disappointing, especially for those who are trying to conceive. Fortunately, a variety of treatment options are made available today to help women increase their chances of pregnancy. At Babies Bliss, we believe in a holistic approach and our fertility wellness programmes are tailored as such. Let us take a deep dive into each of our services from what it is and how it assists with fertility to broaden your knowledge on the subject and help you make a more informed decision.
A specialised therapeutic technique designed to support reproduction and boost the chances of conception, fertility massages or womb massages involves gentle targeted manipulation of the abdomen, lower back and pelvic region. This enhances blood flow, stimulates the reproductive organs and releases tension in the muscles and surrounding tissues. By promoting circulation to the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes, fertility massages can help to regulate hormone levels and encourage proper functioning of the reproductive system.
Unlike the traditional Sengkak massage technique, associated with pushing and lifting movements, our massage therapists are trained to use the wellness technique instead, merging Western methodology with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) philosophies. Focusing on the key acupressure points in the body, particularly the areas surrounding the reproductive organs, this abdominal massage technique allows the body to relax, reducing cortisol levels while simultaneously improving blood circulation and flow, two critical elements when it comes to enhancing fertility. The result is a series of massage sessions that puts women’s bodies in their optimal state for conceiving. It is recommended to combine womb massage therapy with alternative approaches to further increase one’s chances of conceiving, which brings us to our next wellness programme – thermal wellness therapy.
Thermal Wellness Therapy
In terms of fertility and reproductive health, heat exposure has been shown to play a significant role in improving uterus and cervical mucus health. Here, thermal wellness therapy comes in useful as it involves the controlled application of heat to the body. Whether applied through hot baths, heating pads, warm compresses or specialised thermal treatments, it increases circulation to the uterus and ovaries, empowering better egg quality and supporting embryo implantation. Additionally, the relaxation induced by thermal therapy reduces stress levels which can adversely affect the body’s natural hormone balance.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Beyond aiding women through their conception journey, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), can be beneficial for men too! Factors such as inflammation, tissue damage and poor blood circulation may impact fertility in both partners and HBOT addresses these. Individuals are exposed to 100% oxygen within a pressurised chamber. The elevated oxygenation promotes the growth of new blood vessels, repairing damaged tissues and improving circulation to areas that may have previously been deprived of oxygen. High levels of oxygen also stimulate the release of growth factors and stem cells, which play key roles in tissue repair and regeneration. Moreover, the chamber’s pressurised environment enables oxygen to dissolve into the plasma at a higher concentration than normal, further increasing oxygen delivery to tissues. At Babies Bliss, we enrich the therapy by infusing specially blended essential oils for a more soothing and relaxing experience.
Fertility massage, thermal wellness therapy and HBOT are all natural fertility enhancement options that offer a non-invasive way to heighten the likelihood of pregnancy. When used in combination under the guidance of professionals, our fertility wellness programmes provide hope for successful conceptions.
