Relieving Constipation Symptoms with Abdominal Acupressure & Lymphatic Massage

 

What is it?

I massage on your squishy belly with gentle and rhythmic strokes in a clockwise motion to mimic how our intestines move food around our colon. This process, technically known as peristalsis, is comfortable and easy to receive.

You can do this at home as it is easy to learn. When you engage in this home care, you continue to reinforce the positive results by consistently reawakening the natural process of elimination. AHHHH…

How does it work?

Regular support for your digestive system through professional and self-care helps to re-educate the colon to be more effective, relaxed, and resilient.

Research

According to an article in the Journal of Advanced Nursing (August 2010), abdominal massage appears to diminish the severity of gas and bloating and may be a cost-effective, long-term tool for managing constipation.

In my practice of acupressure and lymphatic massage, patients report back to me about the positive results of both the professional massage I give and the home techniques I teach.
