This is an ancient form of Abdominal Massage which de-stresses and energises the body.
It blends Chinese and Thai massage + meditation techniques, making it truly different from any other healing experience. According to Classical Chinese Medicine, poor emotional digestion is one of the main reasons for ill-health.
Our belly contains the memory of all our emotions from the past. Abdominal Acupressure massage allows the process of emotional life to unfold with balance and clarity.
This treatment can help to release emotional blocks, assisting with anxiety, depression and emotional trauma.
Other benefits of Abdominal Acupressure Massage include: digestive health, immune function, and balancing reproductive health.
How does it work?
According to Chinese Medicine, Qi (Chi, life-force energy, function) moves through the body’s internal channels, nervous system, blood vessels, and lymph glands.
These systems concentrate and cross-paths in the abdominal organs which act as their control centre. Tensions, worries, and stresses accumulate and are seldom dispersed.
These disturbances can reduce the harmonious balance of the body’s self repair mechanisms, leading to dysfunction and disease.
The result is a gradual obstruction of energy circulation which may lead to any number of diseases including:
- chronic pain
- back pain
- poor skin quality
- inability to lose weight.
According to Chinese Medicine, each human emotion is an expression of energy and certain emotions can indicate the presence of negative energies that cause many physical ailments.
This is identified as specific cycle of relationships between the emotions and the organs. For example, the experience of a ‘knot’ in one’s stomach indicates the presence of worry; the negative emotion that accumulates in the stomach and spleen.
Negative emotions can cause serious damage to one’s health. Abdominal Acupressure reduces stress, negative emotions, and excessive ‘heat’ or ‘heat deficiencies’, that cause our body’s to dysfunction.
