What is Abdominal Massage?
Abdominal Massage or internal organ massage is a wonderful treatment that focuses
on the abdomen to release trapped gases, clear blockages and waste products - it helps you to go.
With this combination of therapies the Abdominal & Colon Massage is different for everyone,
depending upon your illness and state of health.
The massage helps to increase the effectiveness of the digestive system and
has a detoxifying effect - helping to relieve your symptoms.
How does poor digestion affect your health?
Your health can be affected when your digestion is not as good as it should. This can be caused from several different factors such as chronic and acute illness, malabsorption, medication, in-activity, poor diet and stress.
When your digestion is not good, it stresses the abdominal cavity and can lead to pain in your sides,
abdomen, lower back, groin, joint pain in the pelvis and gradually elsewhere in your body. It can also
cause bloating, fatigue, headaches, moodiness, poor skin condition due to the build up of toxins in the body.
Other problems caused by poor digestion and a stressed abdomen can include; Crohns Disease, Colitis,
spastic colon, constipation, diarrhoea, pressure on the baldder, bloating trapped wind and infertility.
How Abdominal Massage work?
Abdominal Massage is a treatment which helps to get the contents of your bowel moving,
helping to relieve pain caused from wind, constipation, indigestion and poor digestion.
The treatment starts with Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) which is a gentle treatment to ensure
your lymphatic system is able to remove any toxins and excess water produced from the treatment.
Myofascial Release is then gently used to help release the soft tissue and muscles in the abdominal area,
which allows the massage to be more effective.
Everyone who receives a treatment will have a different experience depending upon the
current state of your digestive system and any discomfort you may be in.
The treatment can be for 30, 60 or 90 minutes depending upon your state of health.
For an initial treatment, please book in for at least 60 minutes.
If you have ever thought of having colonic irrigation and have been put off by the procedure,
then you may want to try this Abdominal and Colon Massage instead as it can be
just as affective and more pleasant.
