This is a deeply healing and nourishing treatment based on ancient Chinese Chi Nei Tsang abdominal massage, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, and Mayan abdominal massage techniques. According to Eastern Medicine and philosophy the abdomen represents the core energy within the body. It is where the first channel of energy was formed and most of the organs are housed. Sacred abdominal massage (Chi Nei Tsang, Hara Massage) releases tension and adhesions, helps to detoxify the organs, opens the diaphragm facilitating deeper breathing, promotes digestive and hormonal balance. It treats conditions such as low back pain, irregularity, painful periods, prolapse uterus and infertility. Working the abdomen relaxes the nervous system promoting a parasympathetic healing state, grounds, centers, helps to recharge the inner batteries (adrenals) and the release of stuck emotions and cellular memory within the body. Massage strokes are gently applied to specific points to help promote your body’s natural healing ability. Progressive shifting and releasing of constricted muscles and areas assist in realignment and balance. Emotional wounds and former traumas are first gently exposed then released, helping you achieve a deep state of peace and relaxation. I use a blend of Shamanic Journeying, Somatics, and gentle trauma release work. Old habits, patterns, negative thoughts and feelings are flushed out of your body, promoting mental clarity.
Specific attention is paid to the abdominal, low back, and sacral/coccyx area to help gently and painlessly guide abdominal organs into their proper position. This promotes optimum health and wellbeing by releasing emotional and physical congestions. The abdominal area is sacred, and can be extremely vulnerable as this is where we store life. Connecting, opening up and creating a sense of awareness in the abdomen is an exceptionally powerful method to restore balance in the mind, body, spirit, and soul.
