Are you curious about the benefits of womb healing massage, or looking for a natural fertility boost? MamaMagic hosted a Q&A with Bronwyn van der Spuy, an Holistic Womb Wellness practitioner who specialises in fertility and womb healing massage therapy.

MamaMagic: Can you tell us what womb healing massage is?

Bronwyn: Womb healing massage is a deep but gentle non-invasive abdominal and sacral massage therapy that aims to bring harmony and balance to your reproductive, digestive, and sacral areas (your sacral spine – or sacrum – is located below the lumbar spine and above the tailbone). The goal is to improve blood, nerve, and lymph flow. On a much deeper and probably more important level, this unique therapy re-awakens and re-connects women to their bodies, especially their wombs. The massage also focuses on releasing physical and emotional tension in order to encourage a natural movement and clearing of both physical and emotional congestion.

MamaMagic: How does it assist with fertility?

Bronwyn: Our abdominal cavity is serviced by the same neural pathways that connect the organs, muscles and connective tissue of the reproductive and digestive systems and the lower back muscles. If one organ or muscle is misaligned, blocked or damaged by scar tissue, all the others can be disrupted. 80% of our immune system lives within our digestive tract, and immunity, digestion, and fertility are closely linked. My treatments include the whole upper body and torso area, aiming to achieve a balanced homeostasis.

MamaMagic: What are the additional benefits that could be expected?

Bronwyn: During a Fertility or Womb healing massage, you can expect to experience deep relaxation and a decrease in stress. The massage breaks down scar tissue and releases trapped nerves, easing pain. By increasing circulation, your organs and endocrine system are reconnected. One of the most important effects is the emotional healing that leaves you feeling energised and lighter. You will feel nurtured and supported, emotionally and physically, both during and after the massage.

MamaMagic: Who would benefit from this treatment?

Bronwyn: I have found that womb healing massage benefits every woman that has received one. I see women who suffer with endometriosis, PCOS, heavy bleeds, painful bleeds, inconsistent bleeds, perimenopause, traumatic births, infertility, IVF and anything related to the womb itself, walk out feeling more in control of their bodies.

Bronwyn stresses that Fertility and womb healing massage therapy does not claim to cure or diagnose any medical conditions, nor replace any medical care that you are under. You should always consult with your Doctor or Health Care Professional. It is a complementary therapy that supports women during all stages of their reproductive life, and there are no pregnancy guarantees from receiving Fertility and womb healing massage therapy.
