Lovely treatment, so deep yet gentle. Eased my issues.
Abdominal Sacrum massage
- Do you suffer from digestive problems?
- Do you suffer from painful or/and heavy periods?
- Been trying to get pregnant for a while, but with no luck?
Our pelvis is full of digestive and reproductive organs, ligaments and muscles which are all interlinked and connected - sometimes when one is misaligned it will effect the others. Various digestive problems can occur like IBS, Crohn's disease and colitis.
The digestive problems may also be linked in with issues around the back - or lead to referred back issues.
Women's reproductive systems are complex and intricate which can occasionally lead to issues, from the milder forms of PMT to more complex conditions such as endometriosis and fibroids. And this can be effected by digestive issues and vice versa.
At Calm and Clear Complementary Therapies® we are trained in this specialised form of abdominal sacrum massage.
What is Abdominal Sacrum massage?
Abdominal Sacrum massage is deeply relaxing and assists the body and mind to reach a balance, and this in turn is thought to affect the balancing of the endocrine system (hormones).
This treatment is an advanced and specialised massage which uses several different techniques, and is focused exclusively on the abdomen and lower back/sacrum. This therapy is gentle, but still a deep, massage which is designed to help improve the circulation to the abdomen and in turn aiding blood flow and reducing internal ligament/muscle tension.
Our abdomen is full of various organs, ligaments, blood vessels, nerves etc which all work together. However, if any of these are misaligned they will have an impact on the rest which can create it’s own region of problems.
At Calm and Clear Complementary Therapies® we are focused on keeping up to date with natural and medical treatments for preconceptual care, infertility and pregnancy, and we then use complementary treatments and other beneficial techniques to assist you.
As every person is treated as an individual the treatments are bespoke to each person’s requirements and will treat women and men.
Why have Abdominal sacrum massage?
When you come for your appointment a detailed and full consultation is taken with you. After this an individual treatment program will be designed according to your requirements, including which treatments and techniques which would be best for you and how often you would need to have a treatment. You will also be offered some additional advice for your own requirements.
The specialised abdominal sacrum massage techniques are specifically adapted to work for each individual person.
What Happens During a Treatment?
A full detailed consultation is taken before the treatment, checking for any contraindications to treatment. Details about your general health, medication, diet and hobbies will be discussed.
You will then be asked to lie on the massage couch faced down under towels and made as comfortable as possible.
The treatment commences with a back and gluteal massage to release tension and increase blood flow. Some work with rebozos may be done at this time.
You will then be turned over to lie on your back. The abdominal area will then be massaged, which includes the digestive system and area around the lower pelvis (depending on personal issues). More gentle and soothing work is done using the rebozo wraps to finish the treatment.
Selfcare and homecare advice will be provided to you after your session.
During the treatment you may feel some tightness or tenderness or textures in certain parts of the areas being worked on.
Follow up and after care advice will be given at the end of the session, and possibly some “homework”. General lifestyle advice, including dietary advice will also be given related to your individual needs.
Initial treatments are 90 minutes long and full follow up treatments are 1 hour or 90 minutes long, where specific concerns can be looked at further.
These massage sessions can also be combined with any of the other therapies, including reflexology, into a 1 ½ hour treatment or can be longer if there is a more specific consultation required (such as with fertility).
