Keeping Clear with A Squishy Belly Massage

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.

Back – ne? How to get ready for summer….

Acne on your back can affect anyone, not just a teenager. This kind of acne is persistent and difficult to clear up. Now that summer is coming closer and sleeveless shirts are necessary, how do you ignore the back-ne? Infrared sauna can make a big difference.

Most people I talk to don’t understand how different infrared sauna works as compared to other saunas. The infrared sauna causes your body to sweat from a deeper level. This means the sweat you generate is not just a result of your body getting hot and needing to cool off. The light waves from infrared are similar to the wavelengths of the sun resulting in you feeling relaxed after the sauna, as if you went to the beach for the day and didn’t get sunburned. So many clients use the infrared sauna for stress management and there are studies available showing it is good for your heart health as well.

Back to getting good results with conquering back-ne. We have found that doing an infrared sauna session 3 times a week for 4 weeks can help your skin to clear up and this also means you have made some headway on reducing your detox levels–and stress as well. Pretty good for an easy, 30-minute relaxing sauna session!

Benefits of far infrared sauna are:

  1. Detox
  2. Relaxation, well-being
  3. Pain relief
  4. Weight release
  5. Improved circulation
  6. Skin purification
