In this article, we’ll discuss in what way massage therapy can come to help to resolve issues with blocked fallopian tubes.

Causes and Symptoms of Blocked Fallopian Tubes

The fallopian tubes are the two tubes that connect each of the woman’s ovaries to the uterus (womb) on the left and right sides. They normally pick up an egg as it is ovulated from one of the ovaries each month, and it’s usually in a fallopian tube where sperm and an egg come together to form an embryo.

When one or both of the fallopian tubes are blocked, it can result in infertility. This is caused by either preventing the egg from meeting sperm cells, or preventing an already fertilized egg to traveling to the uterus.

Causes of blocked tubes may be a previous gonorrhea, chlamydia, or pelvic infection, fibroids, previous abdominal surgery, endometriosis, a previous burst appendix, hydrosalpinx (swelling and fluid in a fallopian tube), and tissue adhesions or scar tissue that may have been created by the previously mentioned causes.

Blocked fallopian tubes often don’t cause symptoms, although it may lead to excessive vaginal discharge, vaginal bleeding, or abdominal or pelvic pains. Another complication might be that a blocked fallopian tube can result in a pregnancy (growth of the embryo) outside of the uterus.

At any rate, common medical treatments are predominantly in the surgical sphere, which includes procedures like draining the tubes, removing scar tissue and adhesions, creating a new opening in the tubes, or even removing the tube(s). In fact, women who want to get pregnant may afterwards opt for IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) instead of counting on proper functioning of the fallopian tubes.

Massage Therapy for Blocked Fallopian Tubes

Apart from the medical and surgical procedures such as mentioned in the previous paragraph, massage therapy may come to help as an alternative or complementary treatment. There are certain massage treatment modalities that specialize in working with the female reproductive organs, some of which also explicitly address the fallopian tubes.

Typically, these are certain specialized abdominal massages which, when they are focused on female fertility issues, are often called fertility massages or sometimes pelvic massages. Some of these these Abdominal Massage modalities are Maya Abdominal Massage (Arvigo Therapy), Chi Nei Tsang, Karsai Nei Tsang, Mizan Therapy, or Womb & Fertility Massage Therapy, to give some examples.

Another abdominal therapy that’s recently making its mark is called Clear Passage®️, which claims to be able to clear blocked fallopian tubes by removing scar tissue, adhesions, and/or treat hydrosalpinx, hence avoiding surgery. You can read more about this in the article published at Medical Massage Opens Fallopian Tubes in 143 Infertile Women; 80 Become Pregnant Naturally and in the published studies from the Clear Passage®️ company.

At any rate, as for resolving issues with the fallopian tubes, the focus of these types of massages will mostly be on repositioning internal organs into their proper place, stimulation of the blood supply (nutritive and hormonal stimulation) and lymph circulation (detoxification and drainage stimulation) in the reproductive, pelvic, and abdominal area through relieve of muscle and tissue tensions, clearing of tissue adhesions, and scar tissue remediation.

However, results (if there are any) can take a while to show (several weeks or longer), and women will most likely need multiple treatment sessions. Abdominal Massage therapy is certainly not like surgery, the latter giving much quicker or immediate results (although sometimes with certain unwanted risks of side effects).

What’s also important is that a woman works with a truly holistic therapist, one who will focus on a broader context than just the fallopian tubes. The question that needs to be answered is why a (or both) tube(s) is/are blocked, which could be due to a direct issue with the tube(s), but it could also be caused by another underlying issue. Hence, it would be good to have a therapist who really dives into this and not only looks at the symptoms.

Opting for massage therapy to unblock (a) fallopian tube(s) is for those women who first want to try to avoid surgery, and (medically) have the time to look at alternative procedures. One may want to look at natural and safe treatments (which apart from massage therapy may, for instance, also involve naturopathy, an adapted diet, herbal medication, or acupuncture) before deciding to undergo surgery. However, it’s important to keep in mind that pharmaceutical or modern surgical medicine is sometimes the best or only solution.
