I’d like to start with the definition of Hypnotherapy, which is this: A type of psychological treatment where a person is put into a state of altered consciousness (that is, a trance) and deep relaxation, with the goal of improving a person’s ability to access certain internal experiences, such as memories or emotions.
It is ever so wonderful when we have the ability to heal our body and mind with modalities that allow us to reach to the root issues of certain imbalances. I am referring to the modalities of Hypnotherapy and Yoga this time. Both have as the ultimate goal to help us reach deep relaxation, alter mind patterns that no longer serve us allowing us to heal. Fertility is something that for a lot of women is an issue, as our modern lifestyle robs women off their true essence.
It is a true blessing when women realise their true nature (each one of us is unique with a unique life purpose) and aspire to fulfil their life purpose. For sometime now, practising mindfulness, non-judgment, self-acceptance is a truly wonderful way of taking each day as a special gift and not a struggle to get things done in a selfish, one-sided way. I’ve been researching for some months now the effects of healthy eating, specialised exercising and meditation on fertility. The more relaxed I feel, the better the body feels. That’s a no brainer. However, how many women with any type of fertility issue know that this is the holy trinity for maintaining our female reproductive system at its best? We tend to focus on what is wrong, looking for the best solution which most of the time is concentrating on eating better, or starting exercising or just wondering what’s wrong with us.
It is time that we look at ourselves as a whole and not as a list of problems, health issues, bad experiences, etc. A holistic approach, to my experience allows body and mind to synchronise, remember their core purpose and eventually heal.
For me, Hypnotherapy was the next experiment to achieve deeper mind and body relaxation. But something was missing, until I realised that a combination of meditation and yoga focusing on balancing fertility would be the thing for me. I am so grateful and feel so blessed for having a session with Flavia from mamalovesme.
Her holistic approach to women’s health is wonderful! The session started with a short discussion about where I am emotionally and physically at the moment, how I ear, what I need and how I can fulfil my needs. I found Flavia very down to earth, gentle, warm and very knowledgeable in her field. She also explained the importance of mind and body unity. Hearing that I felt like home.
The next thing was to relax body and mind with a guided fertility meditation. A lot of visualisation took place that helped me relax and accept the moment. Now, I could add those visualisations to my daily meditation/hypnotherapy sessions. Flavia also explained that for restoring fertility, gentle exercising or micro movements are very important. I was guided through gentle yoga asanas and breathing that my body needed. During this time, Flavia would add the benefits of some of the asanas, something I found very interesting!
Benefits of Fertility Yoga:
- Restore hormonal imbalances
- Reduce PMS
- Relax the body
- Increase blood flow in the reproductive organs and improve ovulation, overall health in the area
- Keep the body, tissues, muscles flexible
- Reduce stress and negative thoughts.
Benefits of Hypnotherapy:
- Stress buster
- Release negative mind patters
- Manage chronic pain
- Deal with traumatic issues and memories
- Improve sleep
- Help with anxiety and depression or mood swings

Taking the time to listen to your body and what it needs is key, can take some time. As a Curious Mind, I felt that Flavia took the time to connect with me, to assist me in achieving optimal mind and body relaxation by creating a wonderful, restorative yoga routine.
I am ever so grateful that my curiosity brings me closer to wonderful, interesting, positive people.
Hypnotherapy is Hypnos= sleep (deep meditative state) and therapy=healing. Our mind can heal our body and that is a fact.
