This is a gentle massage of the abdomen that enhances the flow of blood, lymph, nerve impulses and chi in the abdomen. Increased flow restores balance and allows the body to access its own healing resources.
Self massage techniques are taught and encouraged to enhance the results of these professional sessions. This combination of self-massage and professional guidance will support you to come in to conversation with this area of yourself and to lovingly encourage healing.
What to Expect:
During a session you will be unclothed and draped as you would for other types of massage. Treatment includes the upper and lower abdomen. The uterus sits just above the pubic bone, so we will be working in the space from just below the ribs to just above
the pubic bone.
Sessions also include massage to your back, hips and sacrum. This reduces tension and restrictions to align your pelvis and to decrease congestion in the belly and the pelvic bowl.
Your practitioner will teach you and provide you with written instructions on how to care for your own belly at home. We recommend that you do this 10-minute massage every day between professional sessions. Daily massage improves and accelerates results.
Regular treatments can support fertility and help relieve symptoms of:

Please Schedule around your menstrual cycle. This treatment should not be done when you are menstruating. It should also be avoided if you have an IUD due to work in the lower abdomen.
