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.

Infrared Sauna

My sauna clients love coming in off a busy day for an instant energy shift, glowing skin,
and a more open heart as they transition from work to home. The infrared saunas are a unique because it works for people of all fitness levels and the immediate positive results are what keep clients coming back for more. A 30-minute infrared session will have you sweating like you just did hot yoga and is an overall efficient way to detox, ease pain, speed muscle recovery, and de-stress. it is a great alternative therapy option for anyone looking to detoxify the body and increase lymphatic flow and circulation. An infrared sauna doesn’t cause you to sweat by uncomfortably high temperatures but by the infrared wavelengths that penetrate deeper into the layers of the body. Just come in and try it and you’ll be delighted by how you feel.

Self Hand Shiatsu helps with sleep-Pilot Study

http://www.jcimjournal.com/jim/showAbstrPage.aspx?articleID=S2095-4964(14)60010-8

In the Journal of Integrated Medicine you can read about this pilot study to help people in chronic pain fall asleep and stay asleep using shelf hand shiatsu.

The results were promising – participants reported subjective improvements in time to fall asleep, number of awakenings and daytime pain. There were some small objective improvements at the 2-week follow up, when adherence was at its highest, as well. Interestingly, most participants reported falling asleep while doing the hand self-shiatsu.

It is rare to find studies involving shiatsu, so i had to post this.  I imagine you might be interested in trying this out! Beats counting sheep and it may help you feel better during the day time too.
