What is Abdominal Massage?

Abdominal massage of this type is a therapeutic treatment that has been known and practiced by healers for thousands of years but forgotten in this century. So often, modern medicine tends to focus on relieving symptoms, rather than the cause of the disease. Women and men suffer needlessly from a barrage of physical complaints that can easily be corrected by returning the uterus/prostate to its proper position and function using these massage techniques.

The uterus may have shifted or the prostrate may have swollen, potentially restricting the flow of blood, lymph, nerve impulses and energy flow. This can cause most of the common female and male reproductive oriented issues, as well as a host of unrelated ailments, including digestive complaints.

What is Visceral Manipulation?

Visceral Manipulation is a gentle manual therapy that aids your body’s ability to release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that cause pain and dysfunction.

It also assists to  move and release fascial restrictions in the abdomen and pelvis to encourage the normal movement and function of your internal organs.

“Viscera” related to the internal organs of the body, such as the liver, kidneys, and intestines.

What causes this to happen?

Poor pelvic alignment, chronic constipation and straining, accidents, surgeries, and many other stressors to the ligaments that support the abdominal and reproductive organs.  Repeated pregnancies close together and extensive pushing during birth, falling on your tail bone, surgeries, etc.

What is a session like?

The session involves an in-depth discussion of medical and lifestyle history.  We discuss symptoms and goals and develop a plan to work together to accomplish these.  We assess your pelvic alignment and abdominal stressors, and position of the uterus and all organs.  Tara use’s Maya Abdominal Therapy and Visceral Manipulation techniques together to assist in proper positioning.  She will also show you an abdominal self care treatment so that you can continue treatment at home each day on your own.

First time appointments are two hours long. Follow up visits are either one hour long or one and a half hours long.

WARNING – NOT for use during pregnancy.

In the first few months of doing bajos or V-Steams in combination with the abdominal massage, women have reported that their menstrual blood looks different. Some women have reported blood that resembles coffee grounds (old dried blood) or even the passing of fleshy tissue. Usually by the third month women see a bright red oxygenated blood. Even women who haven’t bled in years because they’ve been through menopause, have reported a “cleansing” of old indurated blood. Improved blood and lymph flow increases the health of the tissue on a cellular level. This service can be scheduled as a stand alone treatment or used in conjunction with your treatment. You can also purchase herbal packets and do the steam in your own home.

What is it?

The body has 5 organs that allow DETOXFICATION: the Liver, Skin, Colon, Kidneys and the Lungs. The Ion Detox Footbath cleanses, balances and enhances the bio-energy present in the body. This energy is the electromagnetic force that is stored and utilized in the body. Chinese medicine refers to this energy is CHI. The Ionic Detox Footbath can be used to increase energy, both physical and mental, it also increases vitality and stamina. It purges and/or detoxifies the body of toxins, chemicals, radiation, pollution and other materials trapped in the tissues. The less polluted your body is, the more your body will work to its best capacity.

Why should I do it?

There are many reasons WHY to detox. Our body is susceptible to many types of toxins, such as food additives, alcohol, prescription drugs, pesticides, heavy metals, and/or environmental or industrial pollutants. It is so important to keep our body as clean as possible to function properly. Again, getting rid of these pollutants from our bodies will help us in the “fight”, i.e. our bodies (immune system) can be “under attack” and can cause many side effects including, but not limited to, tiredness, headaches/ migraines, cold/ flu, acne, bad breath, body odor problems, and sinus problems, just to name a few. Some experts have suggested this type of holistic therapy as an alternative to the prevention of immune deficiency disease.

Cupping

Tara will add this complimentary technique into her sessions.  Cupping is an ancient Chinese method of causing local congestion. A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin either by means of heat or suction. This draws up the underlying tissues. When the cup is left in place on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is formed and localized healing takes place. Cupping has also been found to affect the body up to four inches into the tissues, causing tissues to release toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockages, help activate and clear the veins, arteries and capillaries, activate the skin, clear stretch marks and improve varicose veins.
