This abdominal massage technique has helped many women by treating the cause, symptoms and progression of endometriosis. I know first hand how debilitating endometriosis can be, suffering with debilitating pain and heavy periods since 12 years old when I started menstruating. I had 3 lots of laparoscopic surgery in my 20’s and my endometriosis kept coming back faster, it had progressed to my bowel and bladder and included symptoms of adenomyosis. I was also riddled with scar tissue following all these procedures. At 28 years old, I was told by my specialist that I required more surgery immediately (a year after last surgery), that probably wouldn't be able to have children post 30y and potentially required a full hysterectomy within 3- 5 years due to the severity of my endometriosis. It was a fairly grim outlook for a single women as I knew I wanted children at some point in my future. I was recommended to a massage therapist who had success with alleviating endometriosis symptoms. I was sceptical but willing to give anything a try at this stage. I had 3 massages initially on a weekly basis and I chose to go just prior to my period once per month thereafter to keep pain maintained. This kept my pain away completely for the 2 years prior to having children and my periods changed phenomenally. I totally believe massage helped me conceive naturally by treating the cause and alleviating the symptoms of endometriosis. Each time I had this massage with subsequent pregnancies, conceived the following cycle and now we have 3 beautiful boys. 15 years later, I still dont have any signs or symptoms of endometriosis, my periods are now 4 days instead of 10, are far less heavy and not painful which I am completely grateful for as it has changed my life.
My experience through massage has specifically inspired me to train as a massage therapist to help other women suffering from endometriosis. I usually encourage clients initially to come for 3 massages at least 7 days apart & within a 2 month period or less, to help alleviate signs of period pain. Thereafter, once every 3-6 months for maintenance to keep symptoms under control. For clients with period pain/endometriosis, I would suggest coming for a massage just before your period.

What my clients are saying... In 2014 I was diagnosed with stage 3 endometriosis. For years I thought the pain was normal. It wasn’t until that pain turned to daily pain, migraines, dizzy spells and vomiting that I sought help. I had my first and last operation that year. After my operation the recovery time was long and at times painful. Within a year the pain started to return. I had read about fertility massage with Phillipa Lodge (Pip) and had been discussing it with my sister in law whom decided to surprise me by booking me in for my first of many massages with Pip. What a life changer! If it wasn’t for Pip’s endometriosis massages I am confident I would have had another operation by now. It’s no ordinary massage that Pip offers. She has a very unique talent and gift. The recovery time is fast compared to that of an operation and I was able to go back to normal activities straight away. Whilst Pip has helped a huge amount of women become pregnant and has many testimonies for their experiences, I felt it was important to write about my experience in her helping me combat endometriosis. She has given me quality of life back. To be able to feel normal and like a woman again is an incredible feeling and one that every woman deserves. After being through both an operation and massages with Pip, I can’t recommend her enough to woman suffering from endometriosis. To find a way of removing the endometriosis and pain naturally is an option we are so lucky to have in this country. Karen Goldsworthy
Hi my darling Pip, it’s been such a struggle not messaging you sooner and so much of me wanted to tell you in person, but the other part of me wanted to make sure I tell you exactly how I feel xx
Ever since I met you, we had such a good connection, frightening in some senses as we were so much alike! You literally changed my life with your magic hands - to go from no regular cycle, not ovulating and being in crippling pain on a regular basis to having a regular cycle, ovulating and no pain was the biggest surprise and very welcomed one at that! I didn’t really appreciate the PMS that came with being a real women, but hey - you have to take the good with the bad right! I still laugh that I txt you saying ummm why am I so irrational and hormonal ha ha - thank god for Doterra Balance!
It is with an overwhelming amount of excitement that I can tell you today I am officially 13 weeks pregnant! But wait for it.... this wee miracle isn’t an IVF baby, yes like you, over Christmas and New Years I relaxed and had a good time and much to our surprise I got the best birthday present ever - a positive pregnancy test!!!
Our wee baby girl (yes girrrl eeeeeek) is due 28 September and thanks to you and your massages and Soojin with acupuncture I just know it’s all because of what you wonderful women do!
I can’t thank you enough Pip, I will be eternally grateful for the miracle you have given us xx it is also a sign D was meant to walk into my life... if it wasn’t for him and his sister who also came for fertility massage, I may have never met you!
I am so so happy right now, and I can’t wait to catch up and celebrate in person - over a sparkling water of course xoxo
Feedback from endometriosis clients after 2-3 massages:
Endo sufferer now completely pain free! I had 3 endo sessions with Pip and I am now completely pain free... at first it was so surreal, I kept waiting for the debilitating pain to return at any moment... but it didn't! Not only that, I haven't even had mild pain or slight pain - NO PAIN. Not even a twinge. I only wish I had done it sooner! Thank you so much Pip - I'm forever grateful and will recommend you to anyone I come across who has endo/fertility/pelvic issues. You are a miracle worker. Rose xx
PROGRESS.... Hi Pip, This is a warning to let you know you are in for a big hug when I see you next! Just finished my period and I feel like a new person! Not only did I have minimal pain (like only minor cramps) I had so much energy! I was able to get on with my life like a normal person! Thank you so so much for changing my life! Where once I would spend two days in bed or dragging myself around due to incredible pain, then spend a whole week trying to recover from the exhaustion of it all, I can now just get on with my day and enjoy it. You are incredible and thank you for sharing your gifts with other women so they can live normal lives. See you soon! Cheers, B xx Pip is a miracle worker. I suffered from bad pain each month and needed codeine & voltaren to function. After one massage I have been pain free and not needing medication for the last 9 months. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone suffering :-)
Hey Phillippa, how are you? I hope it doesn't sound weird but I literally think of you every 28 days ha ha ....And guess what arrived today?! I can't believe how much my body, moods and periods have improved! You literally are an angel! I will book another endo massage in with you in a couple of months. I'm so so glad I met you, you have made a world of difference to my life, so thank you xx
Hey I just had to tell you that since I went off the pill earlier this year my first 2 cycles were 46 days long, and this cycle was 34 days long. My period came on without even feeling the slightest twinge!! Although I wasn’t getting much pain in recent months, I could still feel when it was coming on. You work magic. Thank you xxx
So Period arrived yesterday (a day earlier than expected) and pain has been much, much less than usual. I left work yesterday and am not in today, can't quite face a class of 7 year olds but to be honest it's more bowel issues and extreme tiredness than pain. So definitely recommend you endo girls to get in to see Phillippa Lodge for a few massages.
Just letting you know I had a very easy period this week, it was bang on 28 days (woohoo) and only a couple of panadol required on day 1 for niggling pain. 3 days bleeding and done, its been such a vast improvement. thanks a million I do think your massages have helped immensely!
AF arrived today so that's a 28 day cycle which I have never had before. Usually 30-32 days. Also have no cramping at all and normally they are quite painful. Massage has definitely helped Phillippa Lodge So AF arrived yesterday (a day earlier than expected) and pain has been much, much less than usual.

I wanted to just share a breakthrough I had with one of my endometriosis clients. She has been for 2 massages after suffering for years with debilitating symptoms of endometriosis (vomiting/fainting/bowel issues, severe pmt to name a few) which have impacted her life terribly, as it did to me, so I can relate. She came for her third massage last week and she said her last period had improved hugely, going from 10 days down to 4, less heavy and no pain, she said she wanted to shout from the rooftops, she was so overjoyed at the feeling of experiencing what a normal women should with their period!! I am super stoked to be able to help her as i was helped a few years back and enabled me to have children which I (or my drs) didnt think would happen. If you know of anyone with debilitating endometriosis symptoms, please send them to me, this technique changed my life and I hope to be able to change the lives of other women who suffer for the better too, including helping them with the journey to motherhood.
I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend getting Pips endometriosis massage. For years I have suffered extreme levels of pain and fatigue due to Level 3 Endometriosis. I have been to specialists and surgeons – and in the end had surgery to try to fix my issues. About 10 months after surgery I started to get the same painagain, and was told I would need a hysterectomy. Luckily someone recommended I visit Pip for a few massages – and as I had nothing to lose – I did. In all honesty – I was initially sceptical as I was worried it would involve crystals and who knows what else, but what I found was a highly professional and knowledgeable lady. Little did I know she would change my life forever – and in hindsight I wish I had known about her sooner. After just 3 massages, my pain has completely gone – and also my fatigue. I am no longer having to spend 2 or 3 days a week in bed to recover energy – and I am also not walking around bent over in half. The result of these massages has been miraculous! The thought of another surgery and the recovery time was horrendous…. These massages have allowed me to avoid going through that again. I genuinely cannot recommend Pip highly enough. In my case, Pip has been able to help where specialists were unable to. I no longer need a hysterectomy – as the pain has now been eliminated – and I have my life back. It really has been life changing. Pip – thank you so much – words can’t describe the changes you have made to my life. I am now pain free and I have you to thank for that. You have truly improved my life. Words can’t thank you enough for what you have done for me. Yours forever truly grateful Kelli
