Benefits for Women
Normally the uterus sits slightly above the bladder in the centre of the pelvis, about 30-40mm above the pubic bone.
It is held in place by muscles, the vaginal wall and ligaments that attach it to the pelvis.
These ligaments stretch to accommodate a growing fetus inside and to allow movement when the bladder or bowel is full.
The ligaments and muscles can weaken and loosen, causing the uterus to move downward, forward, backward or to one side or the other.
A tilted or prolapsed uterus can be the source of a multitude of symptoms.
Women are often told, there is nothing that can be done.
Treatment options may include the birth control pill, muscle relaxants, or surgery.

When reproductive organs shift, they can constrict normal flow of blood and lymph, and disrupt nerve connections.

The natural balance of the body is restored in the pelvic area and the surrounding organs by shifting the uterus back into place.
The massage helps flush toxins and restore nutrients to help tone tissue and bring hormones back to normal levels.
This is essential for healthy reproductive functioning, such as painless periods, healthy pregnancy, effective labor and birth.
