Abdominal-Sacral Massage combines different healing techniques to address common abdominal complaints such as reproductive and digestive disorders.
How does it work?
The Abdominal-Sacral Massage strengthens muscles and ligaments and relieves tension. It also realigns organs that may have shifted position due to falls, tensions, blockages or operations. The massage gently encourages them back into place and relieves pressure on them. The deep colon part of the massage also helps to loosen hardened debris and encourages a natural movement. As most serotonin (or “the happiness hormone”) is created in the gut relieving any problems or blockages here often leaves you with a feeling of wellbeing and can help unexpected symptoms such as depression. Abdominal-sacral massage also improves the blood, nerve and lymph supply helping your body to heal itself. This allows the healing to continue after the massage and also reduces any scar tissue – often by a third after one session.
What happens in a session?
The first session includes a consultation to give and in depth understanding of the symptoms. A thorough but sensitive massage to the abdomen and lower back strengthens, aligns and improves the areas. Generally at least two to three sessions are required to fully alleviate symptoms. Follow up care is available to suit each individual. A self help massage tailored to each client is taught during sessions so that the healing process can be speeded up and the client can maintain a healthy abdomen themselves. Each session lasts about an hour and costs £40.
