So, WHAT IS ABDOMINAL-PELVIC MASSAGE AND BODYWORK?
Abdominal-Pelvic Massage and Bodywork is a technique of abdominal massage which is an external non-invasive soft muscle tissue manipulation that re-positions internal organs that have shifted (like the uterus), thereby restricting the flow of blood, lymph, nerve and chi throughout the entire body.
Normally the uterus leans slightly over the bladder in the center of the pelvis, about one and a half inches above the pubic bone. It is held in this position by muscles, the vaginal wall, and ligaments that attach it to the back, front, and sides of the pelvis. Uterine ligaments are made to stretch to accommodate a growing fetus inside and to move freely when the bladder or bowel is full. The ligaments and muscles can weaken, causing the uterus to fall downward, forward, backward or to either side.
A uterus in any of these positions is called tilted or prolapsed. Modern medicine has little or nothing to offer women with this problem. Options may include using the birth control pill, muscle relaxants, or surgery, and women are generally told, "your uterus is tipped, but that is normal and don't worry about it."
Yet women have a laundry list of physical and emotional symptoms that can be addressed and prevented with these simple, noninvasive massage techniques. When reproductive organs shift, they can constrict normal flow of blood and lymph, and disrupt nerve connections. Just a few extra ounces sitting on blood and lymph vessels can cause havoc throughout the different systems in the body.
By shifting the uterus back into place, homeostasis, or the natural balance of the body, is restored in the pelvic area and the surrounding organs. Toxins are flushed and nutrients that help to tone tissue and balance hormones are restored to normal order. This is essential for healthy pregnancy, labor, and delivery.
Old adhesions from invasive treatments to the pelvic and abdominal area, including fibroid tumors, endometriosis, and cesarean delivery are diminished when addressed by Abdominal-Pelvic massage. In addition, digestion, urinary and bladder problems can be helped.
Who This is For:
Abdominal-Pelvic Massage + Bodywork is beneficial for WMN at all stages of life. This work, however, is especially powerful for you if you want any of the following:
+ to optimize fertility, to conceive naturally
+ to improve your menstrual cycle (reduce painful cramps, and increase health of the uterus).
+ heal from pelvic trauma (sexual trauma, surgical trauma, birth trauma, etc).
During A Session:
We’ll meet and have our initial consultation, where you’ll share with me your pelvic health challenges (and anything else you’d like me to know about) and I’ll serve you with a full body + abdominal-pelvic massage treatment.
The initial session includes a comprehensive health intake review, a conversation about exactly where you're at spiritually and emotionally, a 90 minute hand's on healing abdominal-pelvic massage treatment, and a self-care training, in addition to customized recommendations to assist you in moving forward.
After the initial session, you’ll be able to purchase a package of sessions, so we can continue working on making space in your body for deep and lasting change to occur.
(Note: at the moment, please only book a session if you are able to visit me in Nyack, NY for your session).
If you'd like to see me in LA this summer, for a session, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your space. I will also be in Sedona, AZ in September, and Sebastopol, CA and will be available for a limited number of sessions.
Once you have purchased your session, you'll be sent your in depth health intake form, and a link to my calendar.
I am taking a limited amount of hands-on clients per month, and I would Love to serve you with abdominal massage + pelvic bodywork. If you have any questions, please email us directly at email@example.com for more information.

Q: My belly and body feel broken since my last child was born. Is this for me?
A: Yes, Yes, Yes. Together we can work on bringing strength and vitality back to your belly and pelvis (and your entire body). Whether you've had a relatively optimal birth, a traumatic birth experience, or anything in between, we can work together to bring your body into greater healing an alignment.
Q: I am having pain during intercourse. Might this bodywork help?
A: Yes! Depending on your unique physiology, and the experiences you've had, there could be a number of reasons why intercourse is painful. Some of the most fulfilling work I have done, has been to help women, who have had cesarean births, reduce their scar tissue, and thereby lift the womb into a more optimal position, which naturally reduced pain during intercourse.
Q: I have heard that optimal pelvic and womb health, has a 'youthing' effect. Is this true?
A: Yep. It's true. The more blood flow you're getting to your reproductive system, the better flow of energy (or chi) through your body, the more you will experience a natural radiance, and glow, that I believe, is an indicator of excellent sexual well-being and vitality.
Q: I'm afraid for my belly and womb to be touched. Is that normal?
A: Yes! The belly, pelvis, and womb, are very intimate areas of the body. It's normal for you to have some fear of another person's hands here. So you know, I always share with you exactly what I'm doing, as I'm doing it, so there are no surprises. For instance, before I begin the womb portion of the massage, I guide your hand to the areas in which I'll be working, so you can get a sense for where my hand's will be.
Q: Is this massage internal at all? Like, do you work inside the vagina?
A: At this time, no. I do not work internally, inside of the vagina (or even on the vulva) with women. I am currently studying to be able to offer that very important work, for women, and I'll let you know when I'm trained and certified. Woohoo! But no, this particular abdominal-pelvic body work I offer, at this time, is all done externally. The closest I get to your genitals is the very top of your pubic bone. I also do lymph massage along your inner thigh, and some pretty deep work on your sacrum and tailbone. But again, I will tell you what we're working on, and when.
