I first met Belinda and Larry Wurn, authors of the recently published book: 'Miracle Moms, Better Sex, Less Pain.' at least five years ago when they exhibited at The American Fertility Association's (then hugely attended) fertility and adoption health fair. I caught a lot of flak for having them - because you know - they are "quacks". I didn't think so then - and I don't think so now.
You see - in our medical culture - we simply don't believe in the power of hands on touch - and we would never - ever - massage any area below the waist! We have rules about that! OK - maybe that is an overstatement. Everyone knows that I have a flare for the dramatic. Perhaps we are getting better at accepting touch as healing in our society.
There certainly have been enough studies of the power of healing touch in all aspects of our lives. Why not fertility and sexuality? The work that the Wurn's do with their hands has to do with helping female patients avoid surgery for adhesion-related conditions that cause female infertility, pain, and sexual dysfunction. From their press release:
"With over 700 pages, 'Miracle Moms' is an elegant combination of more than 80 heart-felt patient narratives, and 20 years of remarkable discovery and development of a 'hands-on' physical therapy, backed by published scientific research.
More than 100 original illustrations provide a visual journey into the body.
