Is your fertility treatment complete?
We are in an age where infertility affects 1 in 6 couples. This is a huge number and one that we need to pay attention to. On a physical level we have got this all covered. The medical model for treatment of infertility is advancing all of the time, already using very sophisticated methods of assisting couples to achieve pregnancy.
Whether you are considering pregnancy, have just begun the journey or in midst of assisted reproductive techniques, you may like to consider that there is much more to address in order to complete your fertility treatment, rather than just focusing on the physical aspects.
It is no secret that stress plays a huge part in the health of your fertility as well as the success of your fertility treatment. It is for this reason that understanding your body and your fertility in a way that can support you as a whole is extremely important.
Stress plays a huge role in the problems that we are seeing today related to infertility. In today's society, women are doing more and wanting to be more. Obviously this is going to have huge effect on the functionality of their bodies, putting pressure and various body systems, particularly the endocrine system and hence, fertility.
Fertility Support Program
As part of the service provided by Living Stillness, we help women and men to recognise the stress and motion, as well understand the emotional strain that they are living in and give them some simple tools to be able to begin to deal with this, which may include a very simple gentle breathing technique and body awareness exercises. In addition, the bodywork that we offer also helps them to relax deeply and get to know what their body feels like without running on nervous energy 24/7. We tailor specially designed programs for women and men, to support them through their fertility journey as a way of understanding what is going on beyond the physical.
As a consequence, the patient may recognise the changes that need to be made in their lives in order to maintain this sense of calm and ease in their bodies. These lifestyle changes and different choices can make a huge difference to some of the problems that we see with women today, especially infertility and menstrual disorders.
