An abdominal massage releases energy flow. Energy flow is blocked when there’s an accumulation of stress, worries and negative emotions. It can impair physical and emotional conditions. An abdominal massage is a therapeutic approach which recycles and transforms negative energies obstructing internal organs. It energises, strengths, and detoxifies the body.
An energy blockage manifests itself when negative emotions are bottled up inside the body. They seep in and disrupt internal organs’ regular function. Emotional toxins build up in the abdominal area and treat it as a place of “body garbage dump.” Ignoring this in the long term or being unaware such a condition exists leads to visceral imbalance.
Energy blockage operates on a cycle of overloading garbage dump and unhealthy energies around internal visceral organs. Visceral organs are those in within the chest: the heart, lungs, liver, pancreas and intestines.
If you’re feeling irritated or sick, an abdominal massage might help release this energy blockage. The benefits of the massage include:
- Improves digestion such as constipation, bloating, indigestion, and IBS
- Remove knots and cramp in the abdomen
- Stimulation of flow of lymphatic system
- Strengthens the immune system
- It’s emotionally detoxifying, helping to release negative emotional tension
- Restores the vital force and energy
- Brings the whole system into a balance
What to Expect During Abdominal Massage
The gentle massage works your abdominal area by applying pressure along the navel to open wind gates as well as circular movements on the whole abdomen. You’ll feel some tension during the treatment or discomfort caused by slow energy flow in related organs.
The colon can be twisted into knots if the guest is feeling large amounts of stress and are in a constant state of bad moods. The therapist works the entire abs area to unlock the knots – which supports the detoxifying and strengthening internal organs such as the kidney, liver, gallbladder and small and large intestines.
Guests feel lighter after the session, helping them to relax more. Soreness and tenderness may occur during the session but disappears after a day and drinking large glasses of water.
