Mayan Abdominal massage

Mayan Abdominal Massage

Mayan Abdominal Massage is so simple and yet has a profound impact on the digestive and reproductive systems. I have used it to help with digestive complaints, fertility issues, menstrual irregularities and pain, tilted uterus, and mobilizing scar tissue from previous surgeries.

My favorite thing about this work is that it is a skill you can learn to do for yourself. A ritual passed from woman to woman and allows you to assess and listen to your body and heal yourself.

These appointments are 45 minutes long and don’t fit into my schedule easily these days. For this reason, I offer Mayan Abdominal Massage as needed only for current chiropractic and midwifery clients.

Why I offer Mayan Abdominal Massage

Mayan abdominal massage was this elusive form of bodywork that was referenced from time to time in both my chiropractic and midwifery training. It sounded interesting and potentially helpful for women’s issues and pregnancy care but I couldn’t find any practitioners and had a hard time getting more in-depth information about it.

Finally! In 2015 a Mayan Abdominal Massage self-care workshop was offered in the area and I jumped at the chance to learn more. Two self-care sessions later and the sporadic but intense bloating I had been experiencing was gone for good!

My professional training in Mayan abdominal massage allowed me to address deeper core and pelvis tension for pregnancy and postpartum clients.
