What is Acupressure Massage?
Acupressure is a therapeutic, non-invasive style of massage based off the acupuncture system of meridians and channels. This style of massage has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 3500 years! Acupressure massage uses a combination of relaxation & deep tissue massage on specific acupressure points in order to improve circulation & energy in other areas of the body.
One of the best things about acupressure massage is that it can be done entirely at home by you or your partner, making it FREE, easily accessible & convenient.
How does Acupressure help with fertility?
There are a number of ways in which acupressure massage can assist with fertility & conception, here are just a few of the many benefits:
- Helps increase blood flow systemically
- Allows circulation to increase in the uterus and other reproductive organs.
- Promotes relaxation
- Can be used in conjunction with other fertility treatments i.e. IVF
- May support natural hormone balance
Unfortunately acupressure massage isn’t safe to use during pregnancy, so if you are pregnant or think you may be do not use. To book a consultation with Bob Wong to discuss other supportive options please click here.
How do you do it?
Another fantastic benefit of acupressure massage is that it’s relatively quick & easily to administer by either you or your partner. Simply hold each point for the total of 20-30 seconds, release & repeat for 1-2 mins. A sore or achy sensation may be experienced, this is perfectly normal.
