Are you trying to get pregnant and it’s just taking longer than you expected?
Are you looking for a way to improve your fertility naturally?
Do you want to prepare your body for conception?
Conception and pregnancy are both natural events that can happen without much intervention. However, preparing for these events can improve your chances of an easy conception, smooth pregnancy and a healthy baby.
Even the easiest pregnancy takes a certain toll on a woman’s body and afterwards comes sleepless nights and caring for a baby. Starting off from a healthy and balanced place can help make the transition easier.
When preparing your body for pregnancy my goal is to bring the uterus into alignment and improve the five systems of flow, homeostasis and haemodynamics. That’s just a fancy way of making sure the blood is flowing freely throughout your body so all your organs, and especially your ovaries and uterus, are receiving the nutrition they need.
Is your uterus ready for a pregnancy?
One of my teachers, Rosita Arvigo, says that we wouldn’t put a baby in a dirty crib, so why would you put a tiny foetus in a dirty uterus?
Each month, the lining of your uterus is shed during your period. Sometimes, not all the lining comes out and that leftover blood accumulates from cycle to cycle. You may notice dark, brown blood at the beginning or end of your monthly blood which shows that’s what’s happening.
Ideally, we want all of the uterine lining to be released painlessly during your monthly period so your body can build a fresh new lining ready to welcome a tiny embryo.
Your monthly cycle is a report card
In general, you can use your monthly period as a report card of your health. If you’re having regular pain free cycles, the blood is a healthy red color and starts and stops with minimal spotting then things sound good.
However, if you’re experiencing painful periods, irregular cycles, hormone related headaches and other imbalances you might want to treat them BEFORE you get pregnant.
How can I help you prepare your body for pregnancy?
I use a combination of Sobada, abdominal massage (sometimes referred to as uterine massage or womb massage) and reflexology to help prepare women for conception.
Sobada abdominal massage is a pleasant and relaxing massage on the abdomen and back that focuses on improving blood flow to your uterus and ovaries and encouraging your uterus into the best possible position in your pelvis.
The treatment is very relaxing and improves both your breathing and digestion in addition to your fertility. In turn, this improves your chances of conceiving and bringing home that much yearned for healthy baby.
My cycles are great. Should I still have a treatment while preparing for pregnancy?
This treatment is also recommended if you’re generally healthy and you are planning a pregnancy in the near future and just want to be in the best possible health before conceiving.
Unfortunately, between less than optimum nutrition, daily stress and toxins in our environment, it’s a challenge to maintain balance.
A pre-conception preparation can set you up for an easier conception and pregnancy.
I’m a holistic therapist and I am here to help you!
I love helping women to overcome their fertility challenges and other issues related to your cycles, pregnancy, periods and/or anxiety.
I treat women with abdominal and womb massage techniques known as Sobada (formally the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage) and reflexology.
I’m also an Advanced EFT Tapping practitioner and I work with women in particular issues around anxiety, depression, stress levels.
I teach Fertility Awareness to help women better know their bodies and improve their chances of conceiving or prevent pregnancy naturally.
I live in Modi’in, Israel and that’s where I spend my days helping women during their fertile years, pregnancy, menopause and other hormonal conditions. Bodywork sessions (massage and reflexology take place in my clinic in Modi’in but EFT Tapping sessions and Fertility Awareness education can take place online or in person).

I went through such a journey with Annette. I came here because i couldn’t get pregnant. During the process of healing a lot of pain, I fell pregnant and gave birth to a wonderful son.
I came back to Annette again after the birth for some peace and quiet and an hour to myself once a week which allowed me to feel more present also at home.
Annette is a wonderful person. She is so present and is wonderful at holding space and she brings healing in a simple and easy way which is really amazing and shouldn’t be taken for granted.
I feel like every woman needs a space where she is able to heal herself and give herself an hour of peace, quiet, love and for me Annette is the perfect address.
A huge thank you and so much appreciation that I came to you and gave myself these treatments.
Dear Annette, there are no words to thank you and appreciate you enough for everything you have done for us. Because of you we were able to bring life to the world and we will always be so appreciative to you. Wishing you and your family a wonderful year with blessing, health, happiness and joy.
Ya’ara and family, Modi'in
Annette, I came to you after a recommendation from a friend because I was feeling stressed about not falling pregnant. After two treatment I was pregnant! After each treatment, I had a feeling of energy, relaxation and quiet.
I went to see Annette because we had problems conceiving. I really enjoyed the treatments, especially her kindness, her true desire to help and her optimism that we can succeed. Arvigo treatments are the best. As a result of the treatments my period has stabilised and we are ready for the new baby 🙂 . I've already recommended it to a couple of friends who have fertility problems. I think that the chances are high and it's not painful and absolutely natural.
I went to Annette for treatment because of very painful periods and general stress. Her treatments (Sobada and reflexology) relaxed me and there has been a significant reduction in pain when I get my period. I would recommend Annette’s treatments. The self-care treatment she taught me to do at home lets me relax and connect with my body. This time out itself is helpful in addition to the massage which touched all the right spots. Really effective and worthwhile. Thank you!
