Lava Shell Massage
Lava shells tummy treatment
This non-invasive treatment starts with a soothing warm shell massage around the small and large intestine, stimulating circulation to help remove blockages leaving the tummy feeling soothed and less swollen, ideal for easing any gastric complaints and IBS. This is an encouraging massage to help the natural elimination of waste and could be thought of as a non invasive colonic therapy. The heat from the lava shells also stimulates blood supply which helps boost the circulation, improve cell renewal and elasticity resulting in healthier looking skin. The lava shell treatment can also stimulate weakened pelvic floor muscles often experienced post pregnancy. It is common in Asia for the tummy area to be massaged for 40 days after childbirth to help regain the strength, however in the UK we must allow 6 weeks after pregnancy or any operation before massage
Holistic Colonic Cleanse
A very high percentage of women suffer with constipation. General elimination usually occurs once a day but a surprising amount of women will not eliminate for two or three days. The massage will increase gut mobility and aid digestion so generally most clients will notice a big difference in their overall constitution. A common complaint of clients is being uncomfortable and bloated. There will be a significant change after the treatment and usually within 6-8 hours an easy natural elimination of gas will occur. Inch loss is achieved by the following day and a flatter stomach is quite visible.
Frequently asked questions about the stomach
Do I need a stomach massage?
The stomach area is often neglected and forgotten during a massage. There are many reasons for this: from a clients perspective it can represent, discomfort, feeling sensitive, feeling embarrassed, generally not an area that is liked. Most clients would prefer a therapist to spend more time on the back than a simple light massage on the stomach, all too often unaware of the benefits of stomach massage altogether.
