Abdominal Massage

Massaging the abdomen helps to dislodge toxins, promote healthy digestion, and improve bowel movements by stimulating the muscles and organs required to produce a bowel movement.

If your bowels are sluggish, make sure you are drinking plenty of water (2-3 quarts daily) to prevent constipation and to help flush out toxins, taking in fiber, eating clean whole foods, and exercising daily.

There are many ways to perform abdominal massage. This is one that I use. Do what works best for you.

Lying on your back with your knees bent:

Gently massage your bowels beginning at the upper right side of abdomen just to the right of your stream, and using your finger tips begin massaging in small circular motions moving down towards your right hip bone, then continue with that motion across the very low abdomen to the left hip bone, and repeating this motion over and over, paying careful attention to areas of tenderness.

When you’re first starting abdominal massage, proceed slowly and gently.

If you find some tender areas, lighten your pressure, and spend more time on those areas.

Consistency is key to success. Aim for two (10)  minute sessions every day (morning when you wake up, evening when you go to bed). Most people report noticeable improvements within one to two weeks of maintaining a regular abdominal massage routine.

Live Life Optimally,
