Abdominal Massages promote digestion and elimination, reduces abdominal pain and increases energy.
Technique: This massage should be performed when you have time to remain in a resting position for 5-10 minutes following the massage. Use massage oil or lotion and lie on your back with a pillow under your knees. Place the palm of one hand over the palm of the other hand. Gently massage clockwise around the entire abdomen. Once complete, gently knead your abdomen from right to left.
End this massage by gently gliding your hands over the entire abdomen. Beginning at your rib cage, slide your hands down to your pelvis, decreasing the amount of pressure each time until you are simply brushing the surface of your skin. When your massage is complete, allow your arms to rest at your side while you relax.
This massage should not be painful. If you do feel pain, reduce the amount of pressure that you are applying to the area then continue.
