Abdominal massage often gets overlooked when considering the benefits of massage overall. We are so focused on the pain in our back, neck, shoulders and legs that we neglect the abdomen.
It is an extremely important part of the body, housing organs such as the stomach, intestine and liver. As such, abdominal massage (that is, massage and stimulation of the abdominal area through petrissage and other massage techniques) can aid digestion, alleviate gastric issues, and relax the nerves, of which there are many in this part of the body.
Bad eating habits (eating too fast and the food itself), stress and anxiety can manifest in the abdominal region, and this area becomes extremely tight and sensitive. When constipation is an issue, massage can also stimulate bowel movements.
At The Karma Studio, we are one of very few places in Melbourne that offer abdominal massage. The benefits are numerous, so consider abdominal massage today!
