Massage applied to the abdominal area, to loosen and relax. This technique is helpful for your digestion and for the reproductive organs, and because of the importance of this area to overall health, your whole body and mind. When bloating and tightness are relieved in your abdomen, energy that is stuck above can descend, meaning that abdominal massage can also be used to treat fullness and discomfort in your chest or head, and to calm and relax your whole system.
Abdominal Massage Method
Abdominal massage is a method of directly affecting the organs and soft tissues below the ribs, the organs primarily associated with digestion and fertility, but which have an affect on all of your physical processes.
This style of massage is about freeing tissues up so that a balance is restored, a natural flow. It can have a profound impact on your experience of life.
We literally are what we eat. The state of your digestion is therefore not only important in terms of your experience of life in the short term, but how your body functions and feels overall throughout your life. If you regularly experience discomfort, constipation, bloating, or any other digestive discomfort, abdominal massage is a means of directly dissipating these problems.
This style of massage can also be used to ease the breathing, which can make you calmer and have a positive knock-on effect on the abdomen. The movement of the lungs is one of the rhythms that opens and closes the spaces in the body, and helps circulation at multiple levels. When the breath is not stuck in the chest, but able to expand to its full extent throughout the abdomen, it can help to relieve a sense of stuckness, and relieves the heart from having to strain to deliver blood everywhere that needs it.
In treatment, I use a combination of back and abdominal massage to balance both the circulation throughout the whole of the lower abdomen. These areas work in harmony, and expand and contract together. I consider it important to therefore look at whether there are areas of tightness in both.
