Abdominal Massage

Some readers in the UK may have seen the episode of 'Supersize vs Superskinny' where the show’s segment on alternative diets and weight loss fads covered abdominal massage.
Those of you with a food intolerance or IBS were probably, like me, quite jealous when the presenter announced afterwards – “I just had a poo that was THIS big!”
Well, to cut a long story short, I decided to book an abdominal massage for myself and found a practitioner online.
I found her on http://www.embodyforyou.com/ and if anyone would like her contact details, drop me a line.
Before I booked my appointment, she sent me the following to ensure that it would be right for me.

Abdominal Sacral Massage
This massage is founded on ancient techniques from various indigenous cultures. It is an external non invasive manipulation/massage that brings the organs within the abdominal area back into alignment releasing pressure and strengthening the surrounding muscles and ligaments. This in turn will improve blood, nerve and lymph flow. As well as relieving physical symptoms the massage is known to also relieve emotional issues.

This massage for women, addresses common complaints affecting the reproductive and digestive systems such as:Back pain, Digestive problems, Fertility problems, Constipation, Bloating, PMS, Painful or irregular periods, Ovarian and breast cysts, Ovulation problems, Fibroids, Heavy bleeding, Pelvic infections, Migraines, Miscarriages, Organ prolapse, Pre-menopause/Menopause, Frequent urination

This treatment is not recommended just before or during a period, if you have had a coil fitted, any recent abdominal surgery, any active infections/ increase in temperature or early stage pregnancy.

I went along on Saturday, filled in a questionnaire and got comfy on the massage bed under loads of big, fluffy, pink towels. I was given a thorough tummy and lower back massage and a little neck and shoulder, along with work on pressure points in my legs and feet. It was thoroughly relaxing and not at all uncomfortable or invasive.

Afterwards I noticed a visible difference, my tummy wasn’t smaller but actually looked smooth and curvy instead of my usual thick and lumpy. I didn’t feel bloated for the first time in months and all day afterwards it felt as though my body was working like clockwork. The giant poo didn’t materialize but I was promised that regular treatments would be more effective!

There’s more on tummy massage here http://www.motleyhealth.com/eastern_health_and_fitness/maintain-a-healthy-abdomen-with-tummy-massage and the description of the massage itself is spot on.

I paid £45 for my massage which isn’t massively expensive but means it’s going to be a treat for those quiet months.


  1. my husband was reading my blog & saw your update in my favourites, he immediately called me to tell me to read this.

    I will definitely look into getting an abdominal massage, it sounds too good to be true. oh how I envy people who can poop once a day or more.

  2. Ha ha that's great! I'm glad this blog might be of help.
    Your husband sounds to be as long suffering as mine! :)
