Sengkak Massage – sometimes also called Sengkak Fertility Womb Massage – is primarily about re-setting the uterus (or womb) in its normal, natural position. It’s a traditional Malay-Indonesian genital treatment well-known in Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia.
The treatment is typically applied for women who prepare their bodies for pregnancy or who experience difficulties getting pregnant, or for women after delivery to re-position and help shrink the uterus back in its natural prenatal state.

In some cases a Castor Oil treatment is added to promote blood circulation, relieve pains, inflammations, and irritations and in general to improve ovarian and uterine health.
The session duration is about one hour to an hour and a half, and the treatment is done for women who are not pregnant, with the additional note that it can only be given as from the last day of the menstruation until the new ovulation period.
In any case, one should always consult a medical doctor and get a recommendation before taking a Sengkak treatment.
