Why You Need Womb Massage in Your Life
Womb massage is a form of self-care that involves the external massage of the uterus and ovaries. It is an ancient technique practiced by different cultures all over the world. As a woman in 2019 living in the United States, taking time to massage your womb and abdomen may seem strange, but the benefits are totally worth it!
Here are two reasons why womb massage should be apart of your daily routine.
1) Womb massage will realign your uterus.
The uterus is held in position by muscles and ligaments that connect it to the pelvis. These uterine ligaments are designed to stretch as a baby begins to grow or as our bladders/bowels become full. When these ligaments and muscles become weak and loose, they can no longer hold up the uterus correctly. The result is a prolapsed or tipped uterus. Posture and tension from stress can also cause the womb to come out of alignment, often pulling the uterus to one side.
A uterus out of alignment can cause menstrual pain and other harmful side effects. When the uterus is incorrectly aligned, the normal flow of blood and lymph are constricted and can disrupt nerve connection. The circulation of blood to the uterus, ovaries, bladder, and bowel can be blocked. Womb massage will help realign the uterus and strengthen loose muscles and ligaments. This will support healthier cycles and digestion.
2) Womb massage will put you back in touch with your vagina and womb-space.
Because our culture is sexually oppressive, many women have consequently learned to 'numb' their womb space. This not only leads to sexual dysfunction but also limits a women’s connection to her feminine intuition and power.
Stimulating the womb with massage increases blood flow to the womb and vagina. When practicing, using a simple meditative body scan to notice the new and different sensations will heighten your awareness of the space. Used over time, womb massage strengthens the connection to the womb, facilitating more pleasure and access to feminine intuition in everyday life.
