Bringing the Body Back Into Balance: Maya Abdominal Therapy Spotlight

Maya abdominal massage is a supportive modality for people suffering from digestive and reproductive conditions. It is a gentle massage that helps to guide the organs into an optimal position and thus aids in restoring optimal function of the digestive and reproductive systems. By creating space, suppleness and flow of blood, lymph, nerves and energy through the abdomen, Maya Abdominal Therapy helps the body to nourish the digestive organs and encourages the ability to self-repair any chronic conditions that one may be suffering from.

Digestive Health

The digestive system is integral to health. It is our core and foundation. When it is out of balance, our entire beings are out of balance. Lifestyle, diet, genetics and emotion all play into our digestive health. Whether there is chronic inflammation from food sensitivity, physical adhesions due to surgery or emotion, or generalized congestion and restriction, Maya Abdominal Therapy can help. Common conditions that Maya Abdominal Therapy can help to address include:

  • IBS
  • GERD
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Constipation
  • Gastritis
  • Indigestion
  • and many more
