Therapist Finds Powerful Combo of Techniques to Help with Fertility

08 Apr

We got this happy email from an excited practitioner, who created her own combo of techniques and ingredients to help a support group of women with fertility challenges.  

We do not necessarily subscribe to simple psychological explanations for fertility issues, (and for a full explanation of all that may be involved, please check out Victoria Maizes’ book, Be Fruitful.

But here is her exuberant note, just the same:

All through the fall, I had a support group with women who were experiencing infertility.  I played a smattering of tapes in my library, each of the weeks we met, to give them a flavor of how they could use their powerful minds to help alter their vision of themselves and their bodies.

In addition, I introduced them to polarity and cranio-sacral therapy. One of the practitioners in my practice offers this treatment as a way to expand energy channels and resolve blockages.

Angie (not her real name) took advantage of this treatment (4-6 times) as well as weekly massages and became pregnant in an IVF cycle a couple of months ago. The practitioner was able to identify and resolve some of the "body memories" that Angie held from childhood that may have been interfering with her ability to retain pregnancies (she had 4 miscarriages). Although she's still "cautiously optimistic" she's still pregnant (she had some scares) and is due in June/July.

Yay for integrative practices and mind-opening therapies!
