Abdominal Massage for Fertility, Detox & Digestion (Certificate)

Shiatsu_023

Abdominal Massage can be done either through the clothing, or directly on the belly, using oils or hot compress.

This highly effective massage treatment combines techniques from energy work, acupressure and breath work, together with myofascial release and lymphatic drainage, to support optimum fertility and reproductive health.

Focusing on the abdominal organs, it is a deeply relaxing and restoring treatment that promotes a sense of peace, calm and wellbeing as well as supporting detoxification of the digestive, reproductive and eliminatory systems, and helping reduce inflammation.

It is a deeply relaxing and restoring treatment that can be useful at any time in our life. It is beneficial not only for fertility, but also menstrual issues, the menopause, improving digestion and detoxification of the abdominal organs and supporting the integrity of the pelvic floor.

You learn self care techniques for you, as well as how to teach your clients to care for themselves, drawing both from latest research and from principles that reach back to ancient Taoist traditions. It’s a great preparation for the spring, when the energy of the Liver is at the height of renewal and detoxification.

We include study of the digestion, the enteric nervous system, and how our organs respond to emotions and stress (the intelligence of the belly), which is important for holistic wellbeing and for abdominal health. You also learn how to select appropriate types of oils, how to make and use a compress, now teach self care techniques to your clients and to care for yourselves. 

Suitable for all levels of experience from beginner to professional massage therapist and also of interets to those working in pregnancy and birth.

A truly wonderful way to deepen understanding of yourself and learn to look after yourself, giving your body the respect and appreciation you deserve.

More about Abdominal Massage:

Known also as Hara Massage, Chi Nei Tsang, and Ampuku, there is no clear delineation between Thai, Chinese, Japanese, or other traditional Asian styles. Each borrows from the other so that it is hard to define which is which!

The belly is a revered centre of personal energy in Buddhist cultures, we only need to see the likenesses of Buddha and his sometimes enormous belly to get an isight into this! Martial artists are familiar with coming from the hara awareness of the Dan Tien or One Point area. Cultivating the power of this area is what eastern martial disciplines rely upon for effectiveness. It is the centre of our energy from where our instinctive responses stem, a place where we connect to ourselves, away from the chatter of the mind.

This course not only earns you a certificate but is a lovely opportunity to get in touch with the core of ourselves, to explore the belly and how to massage it deeply but safely & gently, with the due respect deserved by one of our most personal and powerful body areas.

Blog 3: Gratitude in the time of Coronavirus: Mindfulness and Transitions

Ah, to dwell on the positive moments of my day! This has been one of the joys that my mindfulness practice has brought, and particularly during lockdown which has offered so many more peaceful moments in my environment, despite the difficulties of these times.

Coronavirus has brought with it anxiety, stress, fear, suffering and bereavement. It has also brought many to reflection, new perspectives, altruism and common humanity. All of us are in a moment of obvious transition. The students and young people of this moment are entering a time of huge uncertainty about how their education will proceed. Many are living alone, isolated from families and friends, in some cases distant from their homeland. For many of our students, beyond the remaining few course assignments, they are looking down the barrel of a long summer with little prospect of work or holiday.
