What is deep abdominal massage?This deep abdominal massage, also known as colon massage or internal organ massage, is a fantastic treatment that focuses on the metabolic and energetic functions of the abdomen to release trapped gases, blockages and waste products. It works deep on the ‘second brain’ and is a very powerful massage technique that has a range of benefits
What are the benefits of deep abdominal massage?
The Science of It.
While you were busy developing in the womb, both your gut (which, by the way, includes your colon, small intestine, stomach and esophagus) and your skull brain developed from the same clump of embryonic tissue. At some point (clearly! huh!!) they divided. One part grew into your central nervous system (brain and cranial nerves); and the other into your enteric nervous system (gut brain).Later on, the two brains became connected through your super inner-highway; the vagus nerve.Actually, the total of nerve cells in your gut is greater than the total nerves connecting the rest your body to your brain. This complex circuitry allows your “gut brain” to act totally independent of the brain in your skull.There’s more to it, of course, and lots of big, fat books written on the subject. But for now, I thought that this topic in particular, was great Food for Thought!"
The abdominal massage is performed in a slow, deep, penetrating manner which releases deep muscle tissue spasms in the entire abdominal area, prevents and corrects the fallen, tilted uterus and swollen prostate, and facilitates the normal flow of blood, lymph, nerves and chi throughout the entire body. These ancient massage techniques correct poor hemodynamics of the abdomen and its many organs so vital to digestion, assimilation, elimination, secretions and reproduction in men and women. It is an external, non- invasive massage treatment on the abdomen and back that works to soften musculature, align the pelvic bones, adjust the uterus to its proper position, release muscular armoring in the trunk and enhance circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids, elimination, secretion of hormones and prevent swelling and congestion of the prostate.
90% of women will have a misplaced or tipped uterus at some point in their lives. The causes include difficult labor and delivery with prolonged periods of pushing; poor professional care during pregnancy, labor and delivery; repeated pregnancies close together; falls to the sacrum; a career in aerobics or high impact sports and dancing; wearing high heel shoes; poor alignment of the pelvic bones with the spinal column; chronic muscle spasms around the hips, low back and sacrum; carrying young children on the hip for prolonged periods of time; rape, sexual abuse or incest at any time in life; chronic constipation; running or working on cement surfaces with improper foot support; and errors committed during surgery that cut through uterine ligaments.Any of these can damage, tear or overstretch uterine ligaments, thereby prohibiting them from properly supporting the uterus and causing it to eventually fall down (inferior), backward (retro), forward (antero), or causing it to shift either to the left or right side of the pelvic floor.A retro uterus leans against the colon; an antero uterus leans on top of the bladder; and a uterus leaning to the right or left puts undue pressure on the lymphatic and venous return, arterial supply and the flow of chi, as do any of the other malpositions.
Even though the uterus can be returned to its normal position in the pelvis, it still has the potential to wander if any of the above occur during a woman's lifetime. This is why teaching women to take care of their own uterus is so important. And she learns how to avoid the common causes as well, thereby preventing many symptoms of a misplaced uterus."
