Sun, Oct 4, 2015 at 10:27 AM subject: You are a miracle worker I have seen you for two sessions because I had not had a period for about 6 months and had a history of endometriosis. Well, I don't know what to say, I am blown away. As I told you, about a week after my first massage I ovulated, that in itself was exciting enough. However, what is really exciting is that we got pregnant on that first ovulation. I cannot see how our success can be linked to anything other than your massage, the timings are WAY too much of a coincidence. I cannot thank you enough for helping us to achieve our dream!
I am only 6.5 weeks pregnant at this stage, so we haven't told anyone yet. When we do I will certainly be advertising you to all my hopeful friends! I won't be needing my third endometriosis massage after all (I still can't believe it). I will book in for a relaxing pregnancy massage a little further down the track instead. I am sure I will need it then!
Heartfelt thanks from both me and my husband,
Hi Pip!! Cool news. I will be 10 weeks pregnant on Sunday - IVF baby!!! We both truly believe your massages prepared my body for this and without the massage this would not have been possible. Our IVF in the past had been unsuccessful but this time round feels different. Thanks so much. Hope to see you for a relaxing pregnancy massage soon!
Hi pip, Just wanted to send an email to say I won't be needing a fertility massage but I'll definitely need a pregnancy massage instead smile emoticon I'm almost 14 weeks pregnant due in April. I fell pregnant the cycle of my massage with you - you were right saying hopefully the massage would make me nice and relaxed! I'll definitely come and see you when I get bigger - especially with being pregnant over summer! Hope everything is well with you. Its so worth a try if you are trying for a baby or suffer in pain with endometriosis.
My story. I went on the injection, had only one injection and it messed everything up. We tried so hard for a baby then meet the miracle worker Pip. I had 50 plus day cycles and major pain went for my first massage and went down to 45 day cycle but still had pain, after my 3rd massage my periods were back to normal and had no more pain it was great. I could not be more grateful for Pips help. I am now 13 weeks pregnant and so happy. I fully recommend this massage to anyone with any sort of issue, be it pain or trying for a baby, this is way better than drugs as this works. Pip thank you so much for easing my pain and helping me carry a healthy little spud, Wendy
After an almost dream first pregnancy, everyone told me not to hurry for the second one, 'all you have to do is trip over each other and your pregnant' ...if only... 6 months of trying we got pregnant, only to have a miscarriage at 7.5 weeks, then amazingly I got pregnant again 3 months later, I had a horrible pregnancy, right through, to be topped off by losing my baby at 40 weeks whilst still in my belly, nightmare!! After that my cycles would not form any kind of pattern, 20+ days difference from month to month and I would get no signs as to where I was in my cycle Twice getting my period in the night, and twice while in town! Then I found Pip... after the first massage my cycle came down to a just about normal for me, then for the next 3 months I received massages and my cycle stayed in that pattern..yay!!! And the cramping and bloating lessened too. A year on from losing my baby, I am now happy to say I am about 5 weeks pregnant, early days but here's hoping this works out this time!! Thanks Pip for all your help and support!! XXX
You really do make them happen!
Not sure if you remember me, I drove up from Tauranga.
I came to see you with endo one side and a blocked tube the other. After seeing you I had a scan which confirmed my eggs were only on my block side. We were told it's probably not worth trying this month.
Well I'm now 7 weeks pregnant and am doing great, so thank you, you are an amazing woman!
As soon as I can I'll be telling everyone about you wink emoticon
After thousands of dollars on treatments, hundreds of blood tests, hours spent weeping the loss of our hopes and dreams, we have achieved our first pregnancy. I am currently five weeks and two days pregnant, absolutely over the moon and absolutely petrified at the same time that our much worked for and long awaited dream might be ripped away from us. The irony of all ironies, while on holiday, we started planning life ahead without children, resigned to IVF, I didn’t chart, I didn’t know when I ovulated and I think we only did the deed once, because I actually can’t remember. The fact that this has happened without any of my knowledge blows my mind. For years I have charted, we have timed things perfectly, eaten pineapple., done everything to try achieve pregnancy short of standing on my head and whistling out my ass and we have had no luck! The only difference is Pip massaged me last month and I had bleeding afterwards. My gut feeling is that this dislodged adhesions on my left (more dominant) ovary and perhaps the stimulation increased blood flow to that area.
Hi Pip, we had amazing news with the pregnancy test last Saturday so I will have to cancel my appointment, we have another blood test in the morning to make sure the hcg is still rising as it should... Thank you so much for the last 3 massages- I feel that they have helped hugely! If this embryo sticks around I will definitely be booking in for some pregnancy massages! Thanks again, Hey Pip, its only very early days but wanted you to know im 4 weeks pregnant! Could not be any more stoked just want to thank you for all your help and support x Hiya Pip. Remember me I you saw in Taupo and then again in Auckland when you picked me up from the station. Just had to let you know I've had a positive pregnancy test! OMG ! It's early days yet and I'm keeping it on down low but just wanted to say you're amazing and thank you so much. 3 years of trying and we were due to start ivf in march! I was diagnosed with a block tube and he had a low sperm count and of what was there only 3% were normal. Hopefully it all works out but phew! So exciting. Thanks again! Xxx
The reason I can no longer make it is because we have a BFP!! It's still really early on (5 1/2 weeks) and we are pretty nervous after having 2 MCs last year but we are hoping this is 3rd time lucky for us and the little bean can stick in there and go full term. I had a massage with Pip back in March and while it didn't work the first cycle it did work on the next one and I truly believe that the massage along with the fertility tea I was taking and some other things we have been doing really got us that positive result.
Ms Lodge how are you? Remember that ticklish ovarian massage you gave me in January? Just thought you'd like to know I haven't heard any issues with the ovarian cysts anymore AND am 8 weeks 3 days pregnant today! Keeping it quiet till we reach 13 but so over the moon!! Thank God and thank you!
Hiya I was gonna book a second fertility massage for the end of this month, but according to my temperatures and fertility friend (the app), I've OVULATED. This is amazing news for me because I haven't ovulated for YEARS without using Clomid. My chances of conceiving this cycle are quite low though because we didn't know I was going to ovulate so there was only 1 baby dance in that fertile window frown emoticon But it's okay really, I'm blown away and so excited about actually ovulating! I just can't believe it happened without drugs! This gives me more hope. I get to do a home pregnancy test on the 28th of this month (unless my period shows earlier), so I'll know whether I've conceived. And if not, I'll book myself in for another massage at the beginning of June sometime or whenever I'm sure I'm between the end of my period but before OV. Thankfully, Fertility Plus have pushed my treatment to begin in August instead of July, so now I have time. And I'm staying off that evil pill until they make me take it! lol Btw, congrats on numbers 34 and 35. That really is an amazing accomplishment and these women must be elated! You have a gift, magic hands xo
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 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.
Mary commented: thanks so much for the wonderful pregnancy massage. Even better that you made a trip to my place in the rain. Looking forward to more pampering from you in the near future

Gotta say I love Pip! She is so professional and friendly and not to mention talented at making me feel fantastic after the massage. I am so impressed with her I keep recommending her to all the pregnant ladies I meet. Cheers Tracey

Rachael said: Pip is awesome! Gave me the best massage I've ever had & can't wait to come back :-) (18 Weeks pregnant)
A client gave me the most beautiful bunch of flowers to say thanks as she is now pregnant from the help of one of my fertility massages!

Endometriosos Testimonial 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
