  • Fertility problems?
  • Miscarriages, difficult pregnancies, premature births?
  • Painful intercourse?
  • Painful menstruation?
  • Clots or dark, thick blood at the beginning or end of your period?
  • Irregular menstrual cycles and ovulation or failure to ovulate?
  • PMS, PMT, depression?
  • Endometriosis?
  • Fibroids or polyps?
  • Bladder or yeast infections?
  • Crohn’s disease?
  • IBS?
  • Chronic constipation?
  • Digestive and elimination problems?
  • Ovarian cysts? PCOS?
  • Headaches, migraines?
  • Low energy?
  • Lower back ache?
  • Urinary system problems?
  • Peri-menopause and menopause symptoms?

All of these are problems associated with a tilted womb which is incredibly common and yet rarely known about, let alone talked about. Causes of a displaced uterus include lifestyle, high impact exercise such as running; injury to the sacrum or coccyx following a fall or car accident; chronic constipation;  regularly wearing high heel shoes; difficult births that potentially lead to weakened ligaments due to over-stretching;  poor professional care during pregnancy, birth and post natal; carrying babies and children on the hip; lifting and carrying heavy weights; walking barefoot on cold floors; emotional response following trauma; and simply from ageing (gravity takes its toll!).

Most women are all too familiar with at least one of the above list of complaints, and indeed to the potential causes. Modern medicine has little or nothing desirable to offer women with many of these problem. Women’s issues are rarely treated in a holistic, joined up manner, yet they can be addressed and prevented with a simple massage treatment called ‘Mizan Therapy’.

So what exactly is Mizan Therapy?

Mizan is an Arabic word that means ‘balance’. Mizan Therapy uses traditional reproductive healing techniques to restore balance when life feels unbalanced – physically, emotionally or spiritually.

It is a gentle, non-invasive external massage that brings healing to the wombspace and optimum health and well-being to women of all ages. The treatment works on the lower and upper abdomen, the legs, and the muscles in the back around the thoracic and lumbar spine.

Mizan benefits our physical health, restoring circulation and lymphatic drainage by relieving congestion and blockages. It can ease muscles and fascia tightened by tension and emotion. The techniques are commonly used in India and further east for optimising women’s health.

How frequently clients see their Mizan therapist depends on the nature of their condition. For many, once per month would be sufficient along with ‘self-care’ in between visits. People who are undergoing fertility treatments often see their practitioners more frequently.

Upon the first visit, clients are given a ‘self-care package’ which empowers them to be able to take care of themselves in between visits, quite literally taking their health in their own hands. For many of us women, just taking time out of our busy schedules to care for ourselves can bring health benefits in itself.
