Fertility

At Belly Bliss we are excited to be working with women in preparing for pregnancy.   We offer services for those who are considering pregnancy, women trying to get pregnant and those who have been struggling to become pregnant.

 

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture can be used as a treatment for fertility challenges. It has also been shown to improve the success rate of modern day fertility treatments. As a stand alone treatment acupuncture is most effective in treating functional issues such as irregular periods or ovulation rather than structural problems such as a blockage in the fallopian tubes. Acupuncture works by balancing the body’s energy flow (qi) which in turn regulates the bodies systems and allows them to function smoothly. Studies have shown acupuncture to increase blood flow to the uterus, reduce stress hormones that can interfere with ovulation, regulate menstruation and ovulation, and improve pregnancy rates in women undergoing IVF. In an American study, 51% of women receiving acupuncture with IVF became pregnant as opposed to 36% of women receiving IVF alone.

CHIROPRACTIC

Chiropractic care can help women struggling with fertility challenges...

Chiropractic care can improve the overall function of our nervous system, including the reproductive system.  The nerve pathways to our reproductive organs pass through the lower portion of our back and sacrum.  Any dysfunction, such as structural or biomechanical stress, can apply pressure to these nerves.  When pressure is applied it can interfere with the nerve impulses and result in reduced function or overstimulation of the reproductive organs and associated tissues.  Some women may display symptoms such as pain, muscle spasm, or fertility challenges.  Many chiropractic patients have sought care for a low back or pelvic condition and found themselves pregnant!  The average patient seeking care for infertility can expect to see positive changes in 3-4 months.  This includes improvement in hormone levels, endometrial thickening, and normalization of luteal phases.  Dr. Jaimy’s chiropractic treatments can be safely added to any existing fertility treatments.

MASSAGE

Maya Abdominal Massage

Misalignment of the uterus and pelvic congestion can contribute to numerous issues within a woman’s body; fertility issues, cramps, long/short menses, ovarian cysts, amenorrhea, and endometriosis/endometritis are just a few. This technique helps realign the uterus and alleviate pelvic congestion by externally massaging the abdomen.

FERTILITY & PREGNANCY

Couples focusing on fertility and pregnancy planning learn to nourish their bodies beforehand and discover high nutrient food options to boost up nutrient reserves before they conceive.   Women learn essential nutritional information for oneself and their developing baby. Pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing take a lot of nutrients from the mother.  Proper nutrition can help replenish vitality and prepare the mother for future pregnancies.   Properly nourishing babies and toddlers is one of the most crucial first steps to raising a healthy family. Moms and Dads equally benefit from learning what makes good food for their children.

Rolfing

FERTILITY & PREGNANCY

Live in a body free of pain and full of energy...
A flexible, balanced body is prepared from the physical, mental and emotional challenges of pregnancy and motherhood.  Rolfing' s soft-tissue manipulation balances your body by releasing tension and strain.  Its methods go deeper than simply alleviating symptoms.  Rolfing focuses on sustainable, whole-body alignment that promotes lasting health.

Before Pregnancy
Rolfing prepares you and your body for a comfortable and aligned pregnancy.

During Pregnancy
For 9 months you and your baby's bodies are growing and changing everyday.
Rolfing supports your body through this process of continual change.
... Relieve nerve pain and compression (i.e. sciatica and carpal tunnel)
... Proper pelvic alignment expands the birth canal - easing labor for mother and baby
... relieve pressure from the low back and hips
... reduce swelling

... Connects you with your body and breath to prepare for the experience of childbirth

BIRTH

After Childbirth
After pregnancy many women struggle to get their body back. During pregnancy and birth, muscles and bones take on new shapes in response to your baby's growth and your experience of labor. For instance, the hips and ribs expand and the abdominal muscles move towards the sides of your belly.

After pregnancy, Rolfing reorganizes the body, immediately enhancing structural balance. By educating your muscles and organs back into place and shifting your total body back into alignment, Rolfing accelerates the process of restoring your body to its pre-pregnancy shape. Healing the Postpartum Belly Manual techniques for split abdominals Allison's sessions utilize gentle and comfortable techniques that help 're-stitch' the addomen back together after pregnancy and birth.

Allison teaches women these techniques so they can continue to work on their own bellies accelerating the process of bringing the abdominals back to center. This work applies to severe 'split' cases but also general cases where women are unhappy with the state of their belly or the rate at which the abdominal tone is coming back together. What are separated abs? A common condition known as diastasis recti, separated abs are often left undiagnosed. Separated Abs can lead to lower back pain, poor and painful posture, and the dreaded "Mummy Tummy" because the ab muscles are unable to do their job.

MOTHERHOOD

Gentle, Quick, Effective

"With one appointment, I saw an immediate decrease in the dreaded 'shelf' above my scar and a more streamlined core.   At eight weeks after birth, I’m well on my way to getting my pre-pregnancy body back.  Allison's approach is professional, direct, and effective.  I recommend Allison to anyone looking for relief from chronic pain, improved physical efficiency, or expedited/improved recovery from injury."  ... Erin Ganser, 37, first-time mom

What you will notice...
... Color change- reduction of visibility
... Texture change- smoothing out of the scar
... Increased sensation and circulation
... Enhanced abdominal tone and alignment
... Improved function of the internal organs
... Emotional healing from the surgery experience

*** Scar Tissue work is beneficial for many scars (knee surgery, hip replacements, puncture wounds, breast reductions, plastic surgery, and burns.***
