set your body and mind up for success

Touch is instrumental in creating nurturing pathways and flow in the body. When you are getting ready to conceive, no matter the method, think about ways in which you can re-balance your body and mind. Massage is shown to decrease the anxiety and stress hormones of the sympathetic nervous system, both of which can reduce the ability to become pregnant. It is shown to increase love and sex hormones like oxytocin and serotonin, both which provide a general sense of happiness, relaxation, and contentment. When the body is able to enter the relaxing parasympathetic state, it is better able to perform functions such as digestion and conception.  Massage therapy has even been shown to increase positive pregnancy outcomes in IVF treatments. Chelsey would love to help you on your path to becoming pregnant!

  • Bring fresh blood to the abdominal area, including the uterus
