Femoral Reproductive massage is a technique used to boost fertility through increasing blood flow to the uterus and ovaries. It is claimed to increase your chances of conception based on the fact that increasing blood flow to any particular area or organ of the body increases its function and ability.

It is a fact that under stress the female body diverts blood flow away from the ovaries and so it stands to reason to encourage fertility that the blood flow needs to be re-aligned. Due to the nature of the massage this must not be performed whilst pregnant or when suffering from any heart or circulation problems including high blood pressure or previous history of stroke. The massage can be performed twice a day up to the day before embryo transfer or up to ovulation.

Every woman can perform this self-help exercise that has been proven through Chinese medicine to improve the vitality of the womb and the reproductive system. This physical exercise might be the most significant physical method you can do to enhance the blood flow as well as functioning of the reproductive system organs.

It may be performed on your own (lying face-down applying pressure more than an exercise golf ball) or getting your partner to utilize pressure, 3 times on both sides, twice each day (morning as well as evening) prior to ovulation to increase blood flow to sex gland and womb. This exercise is particularly ideal for women who don’t practice every day KUNDALINI SHAKTI yoga.

The technique involves placing pressure on the femoral artery further down past the reproductive organs and onto your leg; this then creates pressure in the artery which in turn forces the blood flow to the iliac artery to increase. The iliac artery is the main source of blood flow to the reproductive organs including the fallopian tubes, ovaries and uterus.

To find the femoral artery you feel around two thirds of the way in from your outer thigh towards your inner thigh and place your palm along the crease in the leg (crease if you bend your leg upwards). You are searching for a pulsing. Once you have located the artery you need to press down with your fingertips to pause the blood flow. Once you have paused the blood flow with your fingertips it is ok to hold for 30-45 seconds to encourage the pressure to build in the pelvis arteries.

The result is that blood flow will increase in the iliac arteries and subsequently the reproductive organs. Once you release the artery after this you will feel a warm sensation rushing down your leg as the blood flow returns to normal. This exercise should be repeated on each leg three times, twice a day in the days leading up to ovulation or in the days leading up to an embryo transfer.

Femoral reproductive therapeutic massage instructions:

  1. Discover the crease involving the upper leg and the trunk area of your body.
  2. With the use of your fingertips, find the femoral artery.
  3. Find the pulsation as well as press lower deeply in to the artery until you really feel the pulse quit. If you are using a workout ball, place over the region where you really feel the pulsation.
  4. Hold for about 30-45 seconds and permit the blood flow to collect in the womb and sex gland.
  5. Release the stress and cod natural movement. You will really feel a warm hurry as the bloodstream returns lower your lower-leg.
  6. Repeat on the opposite side.
  7. End through gently rubbing the belly in clockwise rotations more than the uterus as well as ovaries.

NOTE: Don’t perform this particular exercise if you have high blood pressure, heart disease, any vasculature disability, glaucoma, or have been built with a history of cerebral vascular accidents or temporary ischemic attacks.

As a note on this it is perfectly normal to find that one femoral artery side is stronger and more obvious that the other. Also if you do not have someone to do the massage for you then there is way to be able to perform this on yourself. Once you have located the femoral artery you would place a medicine ball on the pulsing area and lean right over it so it would be your body weight that would be pausing the blood flow.  You would effectively be facing your knees.

An option after the massage is to gently rub the stomach, in a clockwise direction, to encourage the movement of the blood around the uterus and fallopian tubes. There are other massage techniques available which can be combined with Femoral Reproductive massage to further improve body function and ultimately fertility.
