Spring Mountains Acupuncture is pleased to offer therapeutic fertility massage and NMT massage (neuromuscular therapy massage) to patients. Erin Brassington ANMT, CHE, and Certified Nurturing the Mother Fertility Massage Therapist is a highly trained and certified therapeutic fertility and neuromuscular massage therapist. Therapeutic massage compliments acupuncture for fertility and any number of pain conditions. While relaxation is part of the benefit, therapeutic massage goes further in helping the body restore balance, reduce pain, move fluid, increase blood flow, and reprogram mind/body disconnects.
Fertility massage is a blend of acupressure, reflexology, and total body alignment techniques that focus on the reproductive system. It is a very slow, gentle, and empowering massage to ensure the mother is fully in tune with her body and able to welcome a child into her womb. Massage reduces stress hormones, which negatively affect reproductive hormones. (For more information on the effect of stress on fertility, see the natural fertility page). This unique and highly effective massage protocol includes fertility awareness, cleansing therapies and visualizations in addition to abdominal massage, reflexology and castor oil packs.
