The uterus typically leans slightly forward onto the bladder in the center of the pelvis, just above the pubic bone. Ligaments, muscles and the vaginal wall surround and support the uterus in the pelvic bowl. Accident, injury, infection, fibroids, endometriosis, invasive surgical procedures, pregnancy, delivery and cesarean birth can all cause the uterus to become “tilted”, “prolapsed” or otherwise out of optimal position.
ATMAT® sessions and home self-care helps the uterus to find a more optimal position within the pelvic bowl.
Symptoms of a displaced uterus may include:
- Irregular and/or painful ovulation and/or menstruation
- Heavy and/or irregular menstruation
- Pelvic congestion, bloating and/or pain
- Pelvic floor tension and/or pain
- Conception challenges including infertility or miscarriage
- Uterine fibroids
- Ovarian cysts
- Prolapse of uterus or bladder
- Bladder and/or yeast infections
- Digestive challenges including IBS, GERD, and/or constipation
- Headaches, migraines and/or other hormonal imbalances
- Perimenopause and menopause
When the digestive, urinary and reproductive organs are out of balance, they can restrict normal flow of blood and lymph and can interrupt nerve connections. When the uterus is realigned, all of the surrounding organs can better achieve homeostasis, which is the body’s ideal state of balance.
Also, tissues are better nourished by blood, lymph and nutrients and toxins are flushed. In addition, the adverse effects of scars and/or adhesions resulting from cesarean delivery or surgical procedures for fibroids, endometriosis may be reduced or eliminated. Women who have had a hysterectomy still benefit from the treatment by aiding in homeostasis of the remaining organs of the pelvic bowl.
A first ATMAT session lasts 90 minutes and includes intake, treatment and instruction of the abdominal massage self-care routine — $95. A follow-up ATMAT session lasts 60 minutes and includes intake, treatment and suggestions for maintaining and extending your session at home — $65.
