The Wurn Technique for Infertility, Pain, and Adhesions
Adhesions may cause blocked fallopian tubes, poor function of the fimbria, ovaries restricted by thick or filmy adhesions or deviation of the cervix, making a difficult passage for sperm. “A sheet of filmy adhesions may decrease the uterine wall’s ability to allow implantation, causing a miscarriage after fertilization. Ovarian adhesions may cause decreased hormonal function,” Wurn says.
How Wurn Technique Is Done
The therapist applies a gentle, specific stretch with the hands for a sustained period of time to tightened areas in the body’s connective tissues until the tension releases.
According to Wurn, this release of tension suggests a breakdown of the cross-links, which have been adhering structures. The release allows those structures to move more freely, generally with decreased pain. “The result is improved mobility of the soft tissues, which the patient notices as decreased pain and increased function.”
Wurn defines candidates as women with a history of abdominal or pelvic infection (such as PID, bladder or yeast infection, or endometriosis), those who have undergone one or more surgeries (such as laparoscopy, C-section, or back surgery), or a fall, trauma, abuse, or radiation therapy. This treatment is not recommended for women with an active infection, cancer, hemophilia, HIV, or those whose fallopian tubes have been closed surgically and never re-opened. It is also not recommended for male factor infertility.
He notes that the initial results have been very promising, and they are conducting clinical studies in the areas of site-specific massage´s effect on infertility reversal; opening blocked fallopian tubes; increased sexual function; decreased pain with menstruation, ovulation, and intercourse; decreased FSH levels; and increased pregnancy and birth rates with therapy administered prior to IVF transfer.
“We performed two pilot studies before we began a more intensive scientific investigation. Fifty percent of the infertile women in the pilot studies had full-term pregnancies, and an additional 25 percent had at least one fallopian tube clear after treatment.” Wurn says that this nonsurgical treatment apparently improved reproductive capabilities in 75 percent of the women, without drugs or surgery. “Subsequent studies with many more patients appear to validate these results,” he adds. “These rates compare favorably with many medical techniques, but at a lower cost and without the risks of surgery or drugs.”
