Pelvic Massage Therapy is a technique used to help restore the health and general well-being within the female pelvis. This gentle and non-invasive technique was created to help you to reconnect to your divine feminine and to allow your pelvis, a highly emotional space, to re-open to healing and balance.
Pelvic massage is for women who have adhesions in their reproductive tract. Adhesions act like glue – disrupting the function of affected organs. The massage involves gentle stretching to loosen tightened areas of soft tissue and is continued until the tension is released. The goal is to decrease adhesions in and around the organs, ligaments, muscles, joints, and support structures of the pelvis, abdomen, hips, and lower back. It is gentle and non-invasive and has a success rate of 71% (IVF’s success rate is as low as 20%).
Retraining pelvic organs to return to their normal status and function is the common sense approach to increasing your chance of conceiving and improving your health at the same time.
Pelvic Massage Therapy for pelvic pain is done over a period of 4-6 weeks and can be broken into twelve 30 minute sessions or six 1 hour sessions (length of the session will depend on patients tolerance to therapy). This massage technique is done abdominally and requires NO invasive work. Appropriate referral to an Uro/Gyn Physician can be given for further evaluation.

Also, pain could be coming from the reproductive organs themselves.
