Harmonizing Your Body
Reproductive Organ Massage (ROM) is, quite literally, a massage of your abdominal organs, usually done by a certified acupressurist or acupuncturist. ROM manipulates the spleen, stomach, liver, kidneys, lungs, and heart. The goal of the massage is to cleanse, balance and relax a woman’s body, making it an ideal environment for conception. The technique came into being millions of years ago in the mountain ranges of Taoist China. It was used by monks in monasteries to help detoxify, strengthen, and refine their bodies in order to maintain the high energy required to perform the highest levels of spiritual practices.
The massage itself clears out toxins, bad emotions, excessive heat, and any deficiencies that cause organs to dysfunction. Often, when a woman has a problem in any of these organs, it is due to reduced blood flow, tension, and stress. By restoring blood flow to the reproductive organs, we can enhance the outcome of an IVF or IUI cycle, as well as assist with natural conception. And, by relieving the body of tension and stress, the organs can reopen and return to a healthy state, leaving the body in harmony. For women that are having trouble conceiving, a body that is in harmony can many times be the key to a healthy conception.
How Reproductive Organ Massage Works
During the massage, patients are taken through a series of deep breathing techniques that release tension and promote blood flow. The goal is to quiet the mind and continue releasing stress. As the therapist massages the abdominal area, patients are taught to bring awareness into each organ and connect the mind and heart with the abdominal organs. Many patients report a tingling sensation as the blood and energy return to the area.
Our navel, or hara, known as the wind gate, holds our vital organs together through the fascia. Therefore, manipulations in the abdomen detoxify, refine, and strengthen our vital system which creates balance and harmonious flow of blood and chi (energy). The abdominal area, with the internal organs and their internal structure, holds the secrets of a person: things we hide from ourselves. The navel, also, relates to energetically inherited emotions, trauma, stressful life experiences and this is why the acupressure or massage can be very sensitive and emotional. These unprocessed emotions block the efficient flow of blood and chi necessary in speeding up the process of gas exchange that helps release excess heat from the musculature, cooling and cleansing the organs and skin and providing us with energy we need to expend in our daily life. Doing six healing sounds recycles these negative emotions into positive healing energy that can free the blockages from the abdomen and through the entire body.
