Yoni Mapping Therapy

Yoni Mapping Therapy (or YMT) is a pelvic wellness modality for women, offered only by women.

It is a gentle and respectful ‘guided tour’ of your most mysterious region – the incredible female pelvis. 

YMT is conducted via private one-on-one sessions involving talk therapy and coaching, embodied sexual education, home-play practices, full body massage, abdominal and pelvic massage, external and internal yoni massage and vaginal mapping.

YMT gives you an opportunity to discover the potential of your Yoni, and to come to a place of wholeness, love, respect and honouring for yourself – getting to know yourself on a deeper level.

It is a holistic modality that embraces all aspects of the self: physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and sexual.

YMT  is registered with the International Institute of Complementary Therapists (IICT) and certified Yoni Mapping Therapists have successfully completed a rigorous and intensive training course and abide by an ethical Code of Conduct.

 
I’m very grateful to have had Freya introduce me to this modality. I highly recommend Yoni Mapping Therapy to any woman considering giving themselves this gift!

What happens in a Yoni mapping therapy  session with freya?

Yoni Mapping Therapy sessions are 3 hours long and include a combination of the following:

Coaching/Talk therapy and initial consultation: First we'll sit down together over a pot of tea (herbal, of course!) and have an informal chat about what's going on for you. This is a safe and non-judgmental space to share ANYTHING that feels important to you. All of you is welcome and what we talk about is completely confidential. Before we get started I'll  ask you to fill in a detailed intake form about your medical history and past experiences relevant to the work we will do together.

Education related to pelvic wellness, sexuality, pleasure, anatomy, etc: I support you to fill relevant gaps in your knowledge and provide answers to any sensitive questions you may have long been curious about but never had the opportunity to ask anyone!

Home-play practices: I'll suggest specific practices for you to take home and use as tools to continue to deepen your journey and connection to your body and yoni. These suggestions will be based on what we speak about and will be relevant to where you're at and what we feel will be most helpful to you.

Whole body Kahuna massage: I will give a nurturing and relaxing full body massage to allow to arrive fully in your body and open to receive. It is important to give loving touch to the entire body before approaching the yoni to allow time for you to surrender and relax into a place of trust, feeling your whole body is being worshiped.

Therapeutic abdominal and pelvic massage: releasing tension and congestion in the belly and pelvis to bring more blood flow, relaxation, and sensitivity to the reproductive organs and pelvic bowl.

Gentle external and internal vaginal massage and mapping: If you feel comfortable to proceed (consent is a big part of this work!) I work gently externally and internally to release tension and restore blood flow, sensitivity and awareness. You are oriented to your internal pelvic landscape – we are in communication the whole time, following physical sensation and emotions that arise as different areas are touched and massaged.

We navigate through your yoni, exploring areas of numbness, restriction, disconnection and muscle tension. Together, we literally create a map of your innermost world – discovering what feels tight, what feels relaxed, what feels good, where certain emotions are stored, how your internal pelvic sensitivity is, and more.

Afterwards, most women feel more aliveness and sensation in the pelvis, a deeper connection with their body and newfound sense of respect for their vagina. Every session is completely different because every woman is unique.

Debrief and follow up: After your session, we have a brief chat about how you're feeling and if anything arose for you that needs further support. I also send a follow-up email with a reminder of all the things we chatted about and your suggested home-play practices in it to empower you to carry on expanding and delving into your sensual selves.

Freya made me feel at ease, very safe and very comfortable, and the space created for this was perfectly warm and inviting.

Freya is truly gifted, with her gentle touch and a willingness to share, encourage and guide. This is such a sensitive area in my life, and to allow myself to share and experience such intimacy was a great obstacle to overcome. I had felt so disconnected from my body due to past unpleasant experiences that I had given up on loving and knowing “me”. Freya took me through the session with such warmth, understanding and respect. The session was beautiful and immense. I was left speechless and wowed and wanting to learn more. It was like being introduced to my yoni for the first time and now I am building this relationship.

Thank you Freya for being a part of this journey with me. Thank you for teaching me self-care and self-love.
— Maria, Melbourne

what are the benefits of yoni mapping therapy?

unspecified (25).jpg

Almost any woman can benefit from YMT and there are some common themes that women choose to explore during sessions that might be addressed...

Physical:

  • Relaxing pelvic tension and helping to relieve pain

  • Restoring awareness to areas of numbness internally

  • Supporting muscle engagement and balance

  • Healing from an operation in the pelvic / abdominal area (scar tissue remediation)

  • Supporting pelvic organ balance & alignment

  • Support in the transition to menopause

  • Support in your fertility journey

Emotional:

  • Having a respectful experience of your body after sexual trauma from past experiences of abuse / violation

  • Addressing shame or guilt in relation to sex / your vagina

  • Desiring to feel more connected to the Yoni / pelvis

  • Moving towards healing emotionally from an operation / abortion / miscarriage

  • Exploring a desire to be touched without a goal

  • Creating space for old emotions related to past experiences

Sex Life:

  • Letting go of painful or uncomfortable sex

  • Navigating through libido challenges

  • Opening to different ways to explore orgasm with a partner

  • Releasing old habits of self pleasuring that aren’t serving you (ie. Only using a vibrator to reach orgasm)

  • Finding out what’s possible in terms of pleasure beyond the clitoris

  • You’re excited to learn more about your pleasure potential

  • You’re wanting to feel more confident in your body

Pre-natal:

  • Preparing your body for birth physically – relaxing, creating space

  • Working specifically with internal areas that will support birth

  • Learning tools to take home for preparing your pelvis for birth

  • Letting go of old emotional tension / stories before birth

Post-natal: 

  • Reconnecting to the vagina and pelvis when things feel different after birth

  • Scar tissue remediation for episiotomy / C-section / natural tearing

  • Feeling held and acknowledged in your birth experience

  • Making friends with your vagina again if the birth didn’t go as planned

  • Supporting emotional and physical healing after a difficult birth

Self care and exploration:

  • Exploring another level of self-care and self-nurturing

  • Learning specific practices for pelvic wellness

  • Creating a more loving connection with your Yoni

  • Feeling clearer in your body awareness and boundaries

  • Getting to know your way around this part of your body

  • Just feeling curious to learn more and discover more about the vagina

  • Having an embodied experience of all the sensations in your pelvic space

Having listed these potential benefits, it is important not to have expectations of a session and be open to see what arises for you personally. Everyone has their own unique experience – and it’s also normal to feel a little emotional or tender afterwards – we often have so many past experiences that affect our relationship with our pelvic area.

(Note: as Yoni Mapping Therapists we cannot promise that we can resolve any medical condition, and Yoni Mapping Therapy does not in any way claim to replace appropriate medical support or mental health care.)

I really appreciated my YMT session with Freya. She is a skilled bodywork practitioner, and was fantastic at facilitating this deeper process for me. During the session I felt comfortable and safe. Freya is open and warm, and I found the verbal aspect of the therapy to be cathartic. During the physical element of my session, I felt really connected with my feminine energy. It was a really informative, educative process, where I learnt more about my Yoni in an innocently curious and gentle way. I’d really recommend women engaging in YMT if they feel like strengthening their bond with their body, Yoni, and sexual energy.

Why is this type of therapy necessary& Does it really need to be internal?

unspecified (24).jpg

There many benefits of internal therapeutic pelvic massage – which is now becoming more popular in many different fields. Osteopaths, physiotherapists and pelvic floor specialists do internal massage for pelvic health and alignment.

Just as with general massage, there are many benefits of receiving internal massage:

  • Access to ligaments that can only be touched from the inside

  • Release of muscle tension that traditional external massage cannot get to

  • Restoration of pelvic organ alignment and balance thus supporting a woman’s pelvic wellness

  • Relaxing of pelvic floor muscles allowing effective engagement

  • Shifting patterns of ‘compensation’ where specific parts are overworking due to ineffective engagement or held tension in other areas

In our culture, many women are disconnected from their whole pelvic region – mostly due to trauma of some kind, and/or shame.

Trauma, often expressed in the body as tension and experienced by a woman as pain or numbness, can arise from something as simple as having sex without being aroused enough, to something as complex as a difficult birth or sexual abuse/violation.

Underneath the glossy, modern sexual landscape we live in, many of us struggle to understand ourselves as sexual beings. It is rare to meet a woman who truly KNOWS her vagina well.

Massaging and mapping internally allows a woman to meet her yoni. To discover her own creative power source, this part that has often only been experienced as problematic or bothersome (periods), or ‘for’ the purpose of another’s pleasure, or for procreation.

We don’t receive adequate education about our own basic anatomy and sexuality. In fact, we are often given the wrong information – which leaves us confused and unclear.

That’s why having an experienced practitioner gently guide you through an area that may be wildly unfamiliar can be a total revelation.

Internal mapping can give a woman the capacity to answer questions like:

Where do I disconnect from feeling?

Where is there pain and numbness?

Is that area still tender from the operation?

What areas feel nice?

What feels relaxing and peaceful?

How is my pelvic floor?

Is there much tension in there?

What does my cervix feel like?

Where is my A-spot anyway?

Because Yoni Mapping sessions involve whole body massage, it can give a woman the felt experience that her Yoni is connected to the rest of her body – which often things a deep sense of wholeness.

A session also creates the space for a woman to simply receive. Nothing is expected of her, she doesn’t need to perform in any way, she can just relax and discover herself. It sounds so simple, but it’s something few women have ever experienced.

After receiving this kind of session, women often come away with a sense of clarity about what they want in their lives – and what is no longer acceptable.
This could mean being more discerning about who we allow to enter our bodies.

Or desiring to treat our bodies better.

Choosing to have longer foreplay because it feels amazing.

Or taking more time to self-pleasure and explore with curiosity.

Carving out more time for self care practices.

Or taking the leap with that big project.

It’s an empowering embodied experience that can help you feel who you are on a deeper level. It’s about coming home to yourself.

A huge thank you for creating such a beautiful space for me to explore this very deep connection with myself and my body. It was a big step in my personal journey and not easy for me to give such a gift to myself but you made me feel so at ease and comfortable with the experience and I am very grateful for this gift. I felt so relaxed and alive in my body when I left you and I was almost bouncing when I arrived home. I felt so excited to share the experience with my partner. I deliberated for some time over whether Yoni Mapping Therapy was the next appropriate step in my journey and can now say that the deep healing and respect for my inner being that you helped me to release has been a profound awakening. The effects of the session have continued to present in my life and it has been so comforting to have your continued contact to debrief and unpack these with your guidance. It is easy to see how passionate you are about this healing work. I wish all women could allow themselves this special time.

frequently asked questions:

DSC_6127.jpg

I'm really nervous - is that normal?  
Yes! – most clients will feel some nerves before a session, which is completely natural. Usually afterwards they’ll be surprised how ‘normal’ and natural the whole thing felt.  I are really focused on creating a safe and comfortable space for the sessions and making it feel fun and interesting. NOTHING is forced or pressured, and you are empowered to set your own boundaries in the session.  I work with informed consent and clear communication throughout and you are fully respected in the experience.

Will YMT solve my health issue?
As Yoni Mapping Therapist Practitioners we do not (and cannot) claim that Yoni Mapping Therapy treats, prevents or cures any medical or psychological ailment. 
All clients have different experiences from their sessions. Many of our clients have experienced Yoni Mapping Therapy as being beneficial for their overall wellbeing. Many clients have also experienced a marked improvement in, or resolution of, their specific issue.
Many clients do report that they have noticed improvements or feeling more empowered in areas such as mental health, emotional healing from past experiences, energy levels, libido, body image, stress levels, body connection, intimacy with a partner, awareness of pleasure, motivation for self care and capacity to assert clear boundaries around their body and sexuality.

Having said that, Yoni Mapping Therapy is not about ‘solving’ or ‘fixing’ anything, it’s about connecting with your body. 

“Once you approach your body as a relationship to discover rather than a problem to fix, you start thinking in a whole new way.” – Jena La Flamme

Who is this modality NOT appropriate for? 
Yoni Mapping Therapy is not currently right for you if:

  • you are in the FIRST trimester of pregnancy – we work with clients after 12 weeks.

  • you are pregnant and have a history of miscarriage or premature birth – just to be on the extra safe side!

  • you have JUST given birth recently – please wait until at least 6 weeks postpartum before a session.

  • You have JUST had an operation in the abdominal or pelvic area – please wait at least 6 weeks before a session to give your body a chance to heal.

  • You are CURRENTLY in a state of trauma – this modality is not beneficial if you are in a distressed and unstable mental state. Please seek appropriate support if this is the case.

  • You are under the age of 18 – we are unable to offer sessions to those under 18.

Is it safe for pregnant women? 
Yes, if it’s safe to have sex, then it’s safe to have a gentle massage (although we don’t work with women who have a history of premature birth or miscarriage – just to be sure!). Sex can press on the cervix quite consistently, and in this bodywork for pregnant women we don’t focus on the cervix at all.

The way I work with pregnant women is soft and gentle – there’s nothing sudden or intense in any way. The internal pelvic work is intentionally slow and relaxing and I don’t press anywhere near the baby.

Massage is a great way to prepare for the birth, especially stretching around the perineum to make space for the baby and prevent the likelihood of tearing or episiotomy – which is something that many midwives and birthworkers do!  I also work specifically with internal ligaments that can have a positive impact on the babies passage through the birth canal.

How many sessions do I need? How far between sessions should I book? 
Many clients just come for one session – and one session alone can be very beneficial. However, coming for follow up sessions is an amazing experience because you get to see progress over time, taking home the practices to do as homeplay and moving through different processes in the sessions.

If you do choose to have more than 1 session, I recommend scheduling sessions 3- 6 weeks apart for maximum benefit. This gives time to let the dust settle and for integration of what we've covered in a session. Upon your return, you will have had time to practice the homeplay and see  how things begin to change for you. You also might have further questions to ask or more specific things you'd like to learn about or work on together.

What if I get my period before the session? 
Try to schedule your session at a time when you’re unlikely to have your period, it’s much more comfortable for you that way.

However, if it does happen that you begin menstruating not long before a session, please contact me to discuss whether you're feeling up to coming for your session still or not. Menstrual blood certainly doesn't bother me! However you may be feeling energetically more internal, fragile, or physically uncomfortable as a result of your period, and that might mean it is best to postpone.

I'm not into spiritual woo-woo stuff...Is this for me? 
Haha, don’t worry! Even though it seems pretty out there, Yoni Mapping Therapy is far from woo-woo. I'm committed to making this experience feel comfortable, tangible, and educational. I'm not pushing any spiritual beliefs on anyone – it’s all about exploring what’s happening in your body. 

What's the difference between 'Yoni Massage 'and 'Yoni Mapping therapy'? 


Yoni Massage’ is a term used by many different people to mean many different things.
Some people may offer Yoni Massage as a gentle pelvic healing massage, which can be quite a beautiful experience. Others may use the name ‘Yoni Massage’, but it also involves coaching and whole body massage (which is great too!) Still others may offer a sexual service that is called ‘Yoni Massage’. For other practitioners it’s related to the spiritual path of Tantra.

Basically all we know for sure about ‘Yoni Massage’ is that there’s some kind of massage of the vagina – because all practitioners work differently.

So if you’ve been looking into Yoni Massage – check in with your practitioner about exactly what they’re offering so you’re totally clear. Some Yoni Massage therapists have done different kinds of training, others are self taught. There are some incredible practitioners out there and there are some practitioners to be careful of. It is an unregulated field and therefore does hold some level of risk. When choosing a practitioner, it’s important that it feels right to you. If you’re uncertain you could arrange a phone chat with them to find out more.

Yoni Mapping Therapy – The Bliss Method’ – is a specific registered modality taught only to a select few women as a holistic approach to women’s pelvic wellness. It is registered as a modality by the IICT. Practitioners have completed a rigorous 6 month intensive training program and are held to a high standard of therapy. There is a code of conduct that we abide by, and sessions always follow a certain structure. The focus is not on trying to give you a ‘pleasurable experience’ – but meeting you where you are, and offering you tools and approaches to bring into your daily life to deepen your connection with your pelvic region and your Yoni. We acknowledge and welcome all aspects of women – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and sexual.

It is by no means a sexual service, but a 3 hour journey of exploration and learning about your unique body and pelvic region.

Please be aware that as this modality gains in popularity, others may use the same or a similar name (Yoni Mapping Therapy) but may not have any official training. For example, there is a wonderful woman in Denmark, Diana Diakova, who offers Yoni Mapping – and trains practitoners. Her methods are powerful but at the same time different to this particular modality. 


This woman is incredible. I have had many yoni massages but Freya’s was different in that she really massaged me, deeply. A lot of other sessions i’ve had elsewhere have been mainly energetic touch which is still wonderful but i didn’t realise how much my yoni needed to feel the physical release I received from Freya’s expertly applied pressure. She was masterful in her approach, created a beautiful safe space and was a wealth of knowledge. Her nature is so caring but also fun and friendly so i felt completely at ease in her hands. This woman is a legend and she sure knows her way round a yoni! Thanks Freya, I’ll be back!

“Freya is an educational and yoni loving goddess. From my first interaction with her to now (being a regular client) she has gone above and beyond. Her passion
and love for what she does shines through in the incredible support and guidance she gives.
Freya is beautifully loving, caring, nurturing, supportive. In the most beautiful way she helps you heal yourself, by teaching you in a nurturing and supportive way how to pour more love into your life and how to love yourself more deeply. After being diagnosed with painful bladder syndrome (PBS) and being told there was no
cure but to go on three different types of medication simultaneously, I reached out to Freya to see if she could help instead. After just one session I felt mind blowing shifts in myself and extreme pain reduction – going from chronic pain every day to forgetting I have PBS for long periods of time.
Furthermore, she is helping me heal deep parts of myself holistically that need extra love holistically after experiencing depression, anxiety, anorexia nervosa, obsessive compulsive disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. During my yoni mapping sessions, I feel extremely safe and supported to allow myself to heal and expand my love. Furthermore, I feel a deeper knowledge and understanding of my own body, sex life and mental space as Freya shares her wisdom and soul. Following my sessions, I feel I have a great deal of direction and sophisticated guidance to help me further grow and delve deeper into this self-study.
I couldn’t more highly recommend Freya, not only as being a freaking awesome person but also as a yoni mapping therapist to guide you in your healing/growth process.”
— Amy Thyer, Melbourne
I couldn’t recommend Freya more if you are considering getting, or even simply interested in Yoni Mapping Therapy.
She has the perfect calming, warm, yet professional presence as a practitioner in such an intimate healing modality.

Personally, I was amazed at how my body stored past memories and emotions and manifested them as physical tension. As Freya is an incredible masseuse she combined these skills with acupressure to hold and release the tension, allowing my physical body release attached emotions and make space for feelings of positivity and relaxation.
Her beautiful home, where she works, is so inviting and she uses the highest quality essential oil blends which she creates herself.

It’s so refreshing to have a real conversation surrounding women’s health, sexual education, self care, femininity vs masculinity and relationships with someone who is so well educated in the field. Freya’s passion for these areas is so present when she is speaking to you, and her follow-up email really helped to debrief and solidify the session.

If you find yourself feeling a call to explore this I recommend you do, as it is one of the most luxurious self-care practises you can treat yourself to and you will leave feeling rejuvenated, healed and inspired.
— - Amy Landman, Melbourne.
The mapping placed me deep into my body, fully present and seen. It moved me from pain and numbness. The music transported me and the oils filled the air with beautiful smells. I was deep inside my body and my feminine energy. I left, again, without many words, or thoughts. I saw nature, the clouds, so clearly, with such wonder. I felt accepting of myself as simply there, neither right nor wrong and not capable of being either. I felt quiet and floaty. I am recovering from old and discovering new. I am seeking a knowing, a connection, a creativity with myself. A wholeness, an integration and space to be. I am seeking the journey and the points that form the constellation of my experience. I want to feel the grateful acceptance of the gifts I receive. I can give and be in the flow. I want to receive and be in the flow too. Fully grown, my adult self and receiving – not from deficit or depletion, but from renewal and affirmation.
