Deep Abdominal / Colonic Massage

What is deep abdominal massage?
This treatment is a deep tissue massage that aims to release trapped gases, blockages and waste products from the abdominal area and is consequently effective for many stress related bowel, lower back and emotional problems, such as:
  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhoea
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Diverticulitis (non-acute)
  • Nervous tummy disorders
  • Low back pain
  • Gynaecolgical & period problems

Your treatment will be tailored to suit your specific needs.  It will include massage to the abdomen, back, neck & shoulders.

 
Benefits of Deep Abdominal / Colonic Massage may include:-
 
    · Relief from constipation and bloating
· Relief from symptoms of IBS & 'nervous tummy'
· Relief from abdominal fluid retention
· Relief from excess wind/gas
· Detoxification of the body
· Improved digestive health
· Improved breathing --> relaxation
 
 
Whilst not necessarily intended as a quick-fix weight loss treatment, this massage may result in some change of body shape due to encouraging bowel movement and reducing bloating caused by water retention.
 
Testimonial: 'I have thoroughly enjoyed my massages with Sally and have found them most beneficial. They have eased the physical effects of rheumatoid arthritis and have also made me feel better emotionally, depression being a side effect of the disease.
The deep colonic massage was also very effective.
I would recommend her treatments without reservation.'

What will this treatment involve
 
As for all massage treatments, your first appointment will include a short initial consultation about your general health to ensure that this treatment is right for you.
Treatment will be tailored to meet your specific needs, as identified during the consultation. It will include massage to the abdomen, back, neck & shoulders.
 
Before treatment advice
Avoid eating a heavy meal less than an hour before your massage and do not drink alcohol beforehand.
 
After treatment advice
As with any deep tissue massage treatment, some clients can feel tired and dehydrated afterwards so it is very important to drink lots of water and be restful.  These reactions are nothing to be worried about, but are signs that the body is readjusting to a new a state of being.
(see also the 'after treatment advice' page.)
 
When is deep abdominal massage not suitable?
In some circumstances it may be necessary to obtain consent from your GP, or any other specialists you are receiving care from, before receiving any deep tissue massage treatment.
Deep abdominal work is not appropriate during pregnancy.
Conditions such as Colitis and Crohn's disease can cause acute inflammation and whilst direct abdominal massage is inappropriate during acute phases, it is still possible to provide massage to the back, neck, shoulders and legs which will aid the circulation and provide relaxation - this is beneficial as these conditions are often exacerbated by stress.
