Maya Abdominal Massage (MAM) is founded on the ancient Mayan technique of abdominal massage which is an external non-invasive manipulation that repositions internal organs. The goal is increasing circulation.
Using Maya Abdominal Massage is an important part of your fertility enhancement at Acupuncture
Northwest & Associates. We recommend a MAM consultation for all of our fertility patients. Maya Abdominal Massage is especially helpful for issues such as: adhesions, polyps, fibroids, endometriosis, cysts or tubal blockages. We also recommend a MAM treatment after an IVF retrieval to help the body clear after an IVF cycle.
Maya Abdominal Massage consists of:
Learn self-care techniques to do at home.
Consult on lifestyle, nutrition and overall health.
Have abdomen and reproductive organs assessed for adhesions and position.
Repositioning of internal organs and breaking up stagnations.
Relaxing and therapeutic pregnancy massage is useful for alleviating the “aches and pains” of pregnancy. You can get pregnancy massage throughout your pregnancy.
Maya Abdominal Massage (MAM) is suggested after 19 weeks of pregnancy. MAM is excellent for insuring good blood supply to the fetus, proper fetal positioning for delivery, and a more comfortable pregnancy and labor.
Maya Abdominal Massage labor preparation treatments begin at 38 weeks, in conjunction with weekly acupuncture. Weekly MAM treatments during the last few weeks of pregnancy have shown to significantly reduce the amount of time a woman spends in labor.
Therapeutic massage releases chronic muscular tension and improves circulation. Massage can also increase joint flexibility, reduce mental fatigue and stress and promote faster healing of injured tissues. In addition, massage can improve posture and reduce blood pressure.
Some of the added benefits of therapeutic massage are better sleep, improved concentration, reduced anxiety and an overall sense of well-being.
Our therapeutic massage therapist, Danisha Christian has been treating patients for over a decade and was raised in a Native American healing tradition. We are honored to have her at our clinic.
