Beginners guide to menstruation :
For the Uterus, it all starts here. Consequently, our young shouldn’t experience fear of what’s happening in their bodies. Therefore, help them rejoice, the transition that’s taking place here from child to maiden. As a result of learning YAM and understanding the transformation going on, we can achieve this. Make it an easy passage for them.
Because we’ll be exploring the transitions in the uterus, body, skin, and hormones and the knowledge we’ll learn. It’ll result in bringing balance back into our bellies with the help of a simple abdominal massage.
Supporting Fertility :
- Firstly, it takes three months for both partners bodies to prepare for successful fertilisation.
- Secondly, really healthy sperms needed, on top of their game, well nourished and fed sperm.
- Thirdly not forgetting the one healthy egg, and just as important a thick fluffy endometrium, must exist, ready for the fertilised egg to embed in its softness and grow into Your Baby.
For fertilisation and implantation to take place, a miracle has to occurs. This work covers all the criteria, massage works on both physical and psychological body helping you to stay strong whilst getting ready for baby. In addition to this, we’ll revisit the menstrual cycle, egg, and sperm production -their life cycle. Including the 3-month programme we offer to couples trying to conceive. This work can help support you through your journey,
From pre-conception throughout your pregnancy and babies birth, like Miss Hortence, an abdominal therapist can help to keep both you and baby.
Whether it’s your first pregnancy or not, in this transitional stage from maiden to mother, you need support and nurturing yourself.
Take a look at Your pregnancy Massage to appreciate what this work can do pre, during and post-partum. Your Pregnancy Massage, Some advantages,

Mindful Menopause :
Some of us have a rough time as a result of the shift between peri and post menopause taking place. Whether medically induced or naturally occurring. Because of the changes that’s taking place now, your bodies blossoming into maturity. Together we’ll explore this complex physical, emotional and spiritual transition
Some women often feel they are not supported at this time! It’s an emotional roller coaster, with our hormones levels all over the place. Whether you’re suffering from discomfort, tears, anger, weight gain, painful heavy menses or none at all, using YAM can make this big difference. Making this transformation an easier passage, whilst changes take place in the uterus and our bodies.
We stress our bodies intensely, compared to our ancestors, what’s changed? Our lifestyle and the way we live, hence, the increased levels of adrenaline. Resulting in reduced blood flow, gut becoming sluggish, therefore foods undigested inability to absorb it. As a result, illness and disease. The opposite happens, healthy gut, healthy body when YAM’s used.
Both men and women would benefit from attending this course. You’ll get relief and live in comfort because this work does actually WORK and can help.
The course, covers the anatomy & physiology of the digestive system and the adjoining organs. How they all work. How YAM helps to bring balance and energy into this system, helping relieve symptoms.
