What Is The Fertile Body Method?

The Fertile Body Method is a mind body approach to fertility which acknowledges the importance of working with fertility problems in a holistic way.
Hypnosis is potentially a very powerful and effective therapeutic tool and is used in many of the techniques and approaches used in the Fertile Body Method.

How Does The Fertile Body Method Work?

Viewing health as more than a physical issue is certainly not a new concept. We know that health is experienced as mental, emotional, spiritual and physical well-being. Many cultures throughout the world use a medical model that fully acknowledges the inter-connectedness between these different aspects of our being.
The FBM views the various aspects of ourselves and the different systems of our body, as a part of the greater whole. This holistic approach acknowledges the effect that one part, or one system, will have on another. It views the human being as a dynamic living ecosystem that strives to maintain all parts in balance, working harmoniously together.
