For women who suffer from painful periods, having an abdominal massage can work wonders. Abdominal massage works by reducing the levels of pain and cramping by bringing warmth to the area while relaxing the muscles to provide even greater relief. It focuses on points in the abdominal area that releases tension as well. So if you are coming up to your period it will be an excellent idea to have a relaxing therapeutic belly massage in London
The Massage Feels More Complete & Holistic
Most clients do not receive anterior chest or abdominal work, making for a huge section of the body that has not received touch or had its issues addressed.
Clients will often make comments after receiving abdominal massage that describe feeling lighter, more integrated, calmer or more energized.
2. Abdominal Massage Techniques Aid in Intestinal Function.
A number of studies have shown massage promotes peristalsis, soothes minor intestinal discomforts and helps with constipation.
The effects are partly mechanical, helping move intestinal contents, including for people with neurological gut control challenges, as in Parkinsonism, multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injury, and for high-stress and more anxiety-prone individuals.
There are also reflex and neurologically mediated effects that support better ease and effectiveness of intestinal function.
Most clients can receive these health benefits with proper abdominal massage techniques.
