Ruth Ellen’s Story

When I first heard that there was an abdominal massage that could help me with fertility I wondered how what I had thought was a simple belly rub could possibly bolster fertility.

I soon found out it’s not just a belly rub – it’s a holistic approach to treating the body.

And Maya massage not only worked for me but for more than half my clients, most of whom had previously been written off by the medical experts.

At the Logan Wellbeing Care Centre we embrace a holistic approach to our clients’ fertility, either before or in conjunction with standard medical approaches to fertility problems.

I believe wholeheartedly in Maya Massage, Logan Abdominal Massage and my associated Logan Method.

In fact I don’t believe my children Aiyana, who was born on January 1, 2011, and Tommy, who was born on  June 27, 2013, would be here today without the combination of these complementary therapies.

I suffered two ectopic pregnancies. My fallopian tubes had to be removed because they were so damaged.

“It was very traumatic to think that aged just 28 that IVF was my only option of having a family.

“But once I came to terms with it, I convinced myself  I’d get pregnant right away and that the first IVF cycle would be a success. Sadly it was not.

“I was really worried. Part of me had a horrendous fear that it was actually never going to happen – but somehow deep inside my heart I knew I COULD get pregnant but my body was preventing me.

“I felt very low at many points but one day I decided I was just going to have to find another way.

“I discovered information on Maya Massage and decided there and then to travel to America and train to become a practitioner. It made perfect sense to me then and the results just keep coming.”

Ruth Ellen’s maya moments of clarity 

Now fully trained, Ruth Ellen was able to offer The Logan Abdominal Massage Method to clients who were struggling with their own fertility issues.

She worked on herself before, during and after her successful second IVF cycle, visualising her baby, being pregnant, holding her baby in her arms, and she massaged herself the way she was taught in America.

Ruth Ellen said: “I felt upbeat but a little nervous going for my second IVF cycle and the dreaded two-week wait to find out whether I was pregnant or not  – I’m no different to anyone one else, it was excruciating.”

“The whole process can be traumatic and that’s where the Maya approach is so fantastic. I think many of the women that come to me are a little anxious about what Maya massage may entail because they’re not familiar with it. They’ve had a rough time already and have looked up Maya on the internet and learned a bit about it.”

“And at this stage of the journey women are normally at their wits end, exhausted, tearful, fearful, frustrated and often feeling beaten by this invisible enemy. They are sometimes angry and resentful, and very emotional – I know I was at times at the beginning of my fertility struggle.”

“Then of course many women are also surrounded by multitudes of people who simply don’t understand and often make the most ridiculous comments in a bid to help to cheer you up. Inevitably, they just cause more upset and anxiety.”

“I understand. I’ve been there and I’ve come through it and my gratitude for finding Maya massage is being able to help other women on this rocky road, helping smooth it out for them and aim for success.”
