Abdominal Massage: Self & client Massage Certificate course

Abdominal massage, which may sometimes be referred to as stomach massage, is a gentle, noninvasive treatment that may have relaxing and healing effects for some people.

It’s used to treat a wide variety of health concerns, especially those related to the stomach, such as digestion issues, constipation, and bloating.

You can give yourself an abdominal massage or visit a massage therapist for a session. You may benefit from the effects of abdominal massage after only 5 or 10 minutes of massage per day.

Be sure to talk to your doctor before getting an abdominal massage if you are pregnant or have any health concerns.

Abdominal Massage Benefits

1.Improves Digestion Function

Stomach massage has its roots in ancient Chinese medicine. It has been used as a centuries-old practice to detoxify the body and improve digestive health. Since emotional stress is held in the gut, the act of massaging the stomach can help to reduce tension and heal the emotional body – resulting in fewer digestive complaints. As the muscles in the stomach relax, digestion is stimulated and clients can enjoy fewer stomach upsets such as gas, bloating and cramping. Gentle pressure applied in a clockwise motion around the stomach can help those with serious digestive issues as well as those with an endotracheal tube.

2.Relieves Constipation

Massaging the stomach can relieve constipation and help improve bowel movements and frequency. As the stomach muscles relax with gentle, sustained pressure, the digestive system ‘wakes up’ and gets everything moving. Studies into abdominal massage and constipation found that the group who received massage to the stomach experienced a reduction in constipation and an increase in regular, healthy bowel movements. Incorporating essential oils such as peppermint may also enhance the benefits of abdominal massage. Massage therapists can also focus on the CV6 and CV12 acupressure points to further improve constipation symptoms.

3. Boosts Immune System

A significant portion of our immune system is located within the gut. A healthy gut contributes to better overall health and immunity, helping our bodies to fight viruses and diseases. By getting an abdominal massage, the lymphatic system is stimulated, leading to detoxification and a boost to the body’s natural defense system.

4. Improves Posture

The abdominal muscles make up your core muscle group. If the muscles in the core are weak or too tight, it can lead to poor form and bad posture resulting in injury. Abdominal massage can rectify this by loosening the ab muscles and improving elasticity. This makes the muscles more fluid and able to attain a full range of motion and function.

5. Releases Physical Tension and Emotional Stress

Most people have felt a “knot in the gut” when stressed or anxious. This uneasy feeling can be accompanied by trapped gas and muscle spasms, including pelvic floor dysfunction. The act of abdominal massage has both psychological and physical benefits. For one, massage induces relaxation, allowing the nervous system to regulate and induce a sense of calmness in mind and body. Secondly, physical pressure applied to the stomach releases any knots or physical tension associated with emotional stress.

6. Alleviate PMS Pain

Those who experience PMS are no strangers to stomach-related issues including pain, cramping, bloating, gas and indigestion. From menstruation to ovulation and reproductive-related issues such as PCOS and endometriosis, women’s bodies are susceptible to pain and sensitivities in the abdominal and pelvic regions. Abdominal massage can act as a natural pain relief for PMS and related symptoms by reducing muscle spasms, relaxing the stomach and pelvic floor muscles, and improving overall mood.

Is it safe?

Generally, abdominal massage is safe for most people provided it’s done in a gentle and safe manner:

  • Don’t have an abdominal massage if you’ve had recent abdominal surgery.
  • Talk to your doctor before getting an abdominal massage if you’re pregnant or have any health concerns.
  • It’s best that you don’t eat any heavy or spicy foods for a few hours before and after an abdominal massage.

Drink plenty of water after the massage!
