You Probably Haven’t Been Massaged Here – But You Should

When you think of massages, the first thing that comes to mind is someone massaging your shoulders or your feet.

You wouldn’t think of getting a stomach massage now, would you? It can feel uncomfortable, and even a little ticklish at first, but once you get used to the gentle sensation, the health benefits are out of this world.

Here’s why you need to book a stomach massage ASAP. PS: It can help with PMS too!

Improves digestion

It sounds obvious but stomach massages can indeed, aid in the improvement of our digestive functions. Gentle pressure applied to our stomach really helps to get things moving. Plus, you’d probably see a reduction in your waistline by an inch or two because of the improved blood circulation that heightens the fat-burning process around your abdominal area.

Decrease PMS symptoms

We’re all too familiar with PMS. It’s basically the ruiner of what was supposed to be your regular, everyday life. We experience PMS pretty much before and during our periods, so why shouldn’t we try to improve our quality of life with a simple stomach massage? Massage techniques like circular stroking of the abdomen can actually improve PMS symptoms such as abdominal pain, water retention and distress.

Releases stress – physical and emotional

Why do we get massages in the first place? To relax and de-stress of course, so naturally, a stomach massage can do just that. Letting go and allowing an expert to work their magic on our abdominal area, we direct our attention to something much more important; self-care. During these massages, we release physical and emotional stress, thus allowing us to feel more comfortable in our own skin.
