This massage is called the Uterus Lift.  The first thing you need to do is find your uterus.  Some 80 percent of all women carry their uterus below the natural positon in their body.  Alot of this has to do with our upright, standing lifestyle, lack of exercise and poor dietary choices.

The Technique

1.  Lie on your back with your knees slightly raised.  (Placing a pillow under your knees can help relax your back and the muscles and ligaments around your pubic bone).

2.  Place your fingertips of both hands on the top of your pubic bone.  The pubic bone is located just slightly below your natural pubic hair line.

3.  From the pubic bone, gently press your fingertips down toward your back.  Your fingers are now moving towards your uterus.  When you can't go any further, then your're probably under your uterus.  (NOTE!  YOU SHOULD NOT FEEL ANY PAIN.  IF YOU DO...STOP!) 

4.   Gently scoop and lift your uterus up toward your navel.  Hold this position 33 seconds, then release.
