What is Abdominal Massage?
Abdominal Therapy has its roots in many cultures and healing traditions around the globe. It something we feel , everyone has laid their hands on their belly and given it a rub.
Abdominal health is central to your wellbeing on all levels
This simple and structured massage, allows you to breathe more deeply and increases circulation in the belly and pelvis.
Circulation brings vitality to all your organs… optimizing digestion, energizing the nervous system, endocrine system, and supporting reproductive health.
Abdominal Therapy is holistic in its approach to health and wellbeing. Only by treating the whole person on a physical, emotional and energetic level can true healing take place.
Who may benefit from an Abdominal Therapy appointment?
I offer Abdominal Therapy to everyone, offering support for digestive and reproductive concerns and post-surgical abdominal scars and adhesions. You may find it surprising to learn that Abdominal Therapy can also bring relief from back aches and pains.
I also offer Abdominal Therapy to support you on your fertility journey from preconception through to post-partum care.
