Nurturing the Belly Visceral Abdominal Massage

Nurturing the Belly Visceral Abdominal Massage

With so many people experiencing digestive challenges due to food allergies, stress and fast-paced lifestyles, there is a need to slow down and rest and digest. This class will focus on supporting the abdominal area that is so often left out of a massage. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to perform a confident and nurturing abdominal massage protocol. Included in the protocol are Claire’s favorites for the belly - a castor oil pack and stimulation of digestive and abdominal reflexology points/areas to round out this Nurturing the Belly session.

In this course you will learn:

  • To identify the abdominal organs through palpation

  • The digestive organs and their function

  • To locate the associated reflexology areas for the digestive system.

  • To identify pathologies indicated and contraindicated for abdominal massage

  • To identify muscles located within or crossing through the abdominal cavity.

  • To target specific abdominal organs to offer a therapeutic massage of that organ.

  • To stimulate reflexology areas in tandem with abdominal anatomical areas.

  • A complete protocol for a therapeutic abdominal massage.
