Abdominal massage has been shown in clinical trials to decrease the severity of gastrointestinal symptoms, especially constipation and abdominal pain syndrome, and increased bowel movements

Tensions, worries, and stresses of the day, month, or year accumulate in the abdomen and internal organs and are seldom dispersed.


Often there is an endless loop as our emotions and negative thoughts affect our abdomen and our tense abdomen adversely affects our thoughts and emotions.


The result is the gradual obstruction of energy circulation which effects our nerves, blood vessels, lymph glands and internal organs. The muscles of our abdomen stay switched on and fascial adhesions proliferate.


Thankfully abdominal massage can help you interrupt this endless loop.

"Chronic constipation affects quality of life and causes problems such as anxiety, depression, somatization, sleep disorders, sexual dysfunctions, school/work absenteeism.


In the following periods, it causes serious comorbidities including dyspnea, gastro-esophageal reflux, hypertension, thyroid diseases, vaginitis, dyspareunia, diabetes, and fibromyalgia."

"A systematic review of results of clinical studies between 1999 and 2011 showed abdominal massage was effective in the instigation of peristaltic bowel motions, decreasing the transfer time of materials in the colon, increasing the number of bowel movements, pain relief in patients suffering from constipation and there was also evidence that abdominal massage aided peristaltic bowel motions in patients suffering from intestinal obstruction after surgery action."

"I have been having massages regularly for over ten years now but this is the most relaxing style I have yet come across. Within minutes I am literally in another world. Half awake, half asleep. It’s very gentle but very effective. Physically, before seeing Kevin I did notice many little knots, bumps, gristle in my gut area. These have cleared up and my stomach is now much more soft and malleable. I still have a few problem areas but abdominal massage is definitely now my massage of choice.”
