“Womb Massage Therapy is an effective way of working with PCOS and can be a nourishing treatment that can support you to reclaim your womb and restore it to health”

HOW DOES WOMB MASSAGE THERAPY HELP TREAT POLYCystic ovary syndrome symptoms?

Whilst Polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, is the most common endocrine disorder in womb bearers of reproductive age, this does not mean you have to just “accept” your diagnosis and live with what are, often, challenging symptoms.

Characterised by irregular menstrual periods, heavy bleeds, excess hair, acne, chronic pelvic pain, infertility, difficulty continuing pregnancy, patches of thick, darker, velvety skin, and emotional instability, wombies with PCOS are often left unsupported, unguided, and with either little information or misinformation from medical professionals.

Womb Massage Therapy is an effective way of working with PCOS and can be a nourishing treatment that can support you to reclaim your womb and restore it to health through non-invasive techniques that you can enjoy whilst your body is replenished.

This powerful modality can help to target and improve your symptoms and is an effective way of working with PCOS and can support you to reclaim your womb and restore it to health

Let’s explore the science of how the non-invasive techniques used within womb massage can work with your PCOS.

At the heart of the science as to why Womb Massage is effective for PCOS is that it increases circulation to your reproductive system. Womb Massage gently applies pressure to the artery that supplies blood flow to the uterus and ovaries and encourages blood to flow into the pelvic organs, increasing circulation and warmth, whilst and removing stagnation. 

The generation of fresh blood flow and circulation can benefit womb bearers in a plethora of ways.

Womb Massage Therapy fully energises the entire reproductive system and the generation of fresh blood flow and circulation can benefit womb bearers in a plethora of ways.

By deeply inviting in warmth and circulation, your lunar cycles can be renewed and fortified with increased flow so that you can:

How does Womb Massage Therapy do this?

The reason for this is that Womb Massage Therapy stimulates your endocrine system, which regulates the hormones that help control your mood, metabolism, reproductive system and fertility. Wombies with PCOS suffer significantly from a disrupted endocrine system and this  affects reproductive and metabolic function. This is why most women with PCOS deal with infertility, missed or irregular bleeds, weight gain and inflammation. Womb Massage Therapy gently works with the points in your beautiful body to promote hormonal balance in the womb and ovaries, supporting the release of the hormones necessary for regular ovulation. 

Lastly, womb massage therapy is a nourishing and restorative experience that can support you to release stress, anxiety and depression. This is crucial because stress can trigger and intensify PCOS symptoms. By really inviting in the release of serotonin and dopamine, womb massage therapy can give you the time and permission to let go and relax as your physical pain and mental health is supported and guided into its natural equilibrium.

In fact, womb massage regulates your ovulation patterns by stimulating the release of a oocyte, which in turn means ovulation can take place, aiding fertility and the wombs ability to complete pregnancy. This is because PCOS prevents ovulation, which means your uterine lining builds up and doesn’t shed properly. When ovulation does not occur, you may experience dark blood or discharge, or light or missed periods. 

When we can stimulate ovulation you can regain your period and have a healthy bleed. 

The blood with be fortified with oxygen so you will notice less stagnant brown blood and spotting. Instead you will begin to notice bright red blood during your bleed, the true sign of a nourishing lunar cycle because it signifies good oxygen levels and a good flow. 

The invitation of blood flow can significantly reduce inflammation, ease muscle tension, break up adhesions and can reduce the size of cysts, dissolving any pelvic pain, or even lower back pain, you may be experiencing. 

About Your practitioner

A word from Kate Morgan

Who am I? I remember being asked that question and having a million answers that fell into silence. I just am, I am being of light and love, much like you.

I was born into this world with the beautiful ability to feel the depths of other’s emotions and had the intuitive skill of being able to connect, to witness and to heal. Before I realised that this was a gift, I struggled to survive in a society that labelled me as an outcast and a girl with too much voice and heart. I began to experience a deep depression and chronic pelvic pain from a young age and was seen by countless professionals over the space of 12 years who all said the same thing: there is nothing wrong.

In my twenties I had had enough and began my journey of awakening and undoing all of the patterns I had inherited and all of the trauma I had experienced.
I started studying the mind-body connection and started seeing a womb healer who delved deep with me to listen to what my body was trying to tell me.

This potent form of alchemy transformed and transmuted all of the suffering I had experienced into empowerment and bliss: I finally returned to my body and remembered who I was and who I am: I am a woman with heart, purpose and soul.

 

I began to pursue my passion and dharma to combine mental and spiritual health through a holistic approach that today’s society simply forgot. I gained a PhD on mental health and began training with the most spectacular Anna-Louise Haigh in Angelic Healing and became the student of the infamous mentor and spiritual healer, John Akayzar.

After specialising in womxn’s trauma and running womxn’s healing circles, I then trained with, Clare Spink, the creatrix and founder of Womb & Fertility Massage Therapy and Empowered Feminine Therapy.

Over 10 years I have worked with individuals with a wide range of physical and emotional health challenges on their journey of recovery to reclaim their sacred selves and reach a place of healing, harmony and empowerment.
