Abdominal Sacral Massage is a non-invasive holistic treatment that may help in addressing issues associated with the organs and systems of the abdominal and pelvic cavities. The treatment focuses primarily on massage of the abdomen but often includes massage of the back and sometimes the neck area.
The massage works to help release pressure and strengthen the surrounding muscles and ligaments within the pelvic region and aims to improve circulation in the area and encourage more efficient functioning.
The deep colon massage associated with the massage aims to help to loosen any hardened debris and to encourage natural movement. Abdominal Sacral Massage may also be complementary in managing stress by releasing held tension in the area.
