Today’s diet and lifestyle can have a major influence on your digestive health, especially constipation. If you suffer from mild to chronic constipation, abdominal massage and stress reduction practices can provide you with ease and higher quality of life.

Constipation is a relatively common problem for many today causing abdominal pain from mild to chronic. Abdominal Massage has been proven to be effective in the management of constipation during a randomized controlled trial. The result of massage significantly decreased the severity of gastrointestinal symptoms of constipation and abdominal pain. (Int J Nurs Stud. 2009 Jun;46(6))

Abdominal massage stimulates peristalsis, decreases colonic transit time and can increase the frequency of bowel movements, plus the relaxation response from the massage will help your overall health and well-being.

In conclusion, abdominal massage may have the effect of not only decreasing abdominal pain but increasing bowel movements.  Also, learning how to do self-abdominal massage daily can help increase your bowel movement along with a whole foods diet and increased water intake.

Since self-care practices are an important part of healing, I will be showing you how to apply self-care abdominal massage as a daily practice.  Your intestinal health can increase with abdominal massage as a natural solution!
