Let's be real. For a lot of us, getting our belly massage sounds a lot more uncomfortable than relaxing. We hold a lot of feelings about and within our bellies and often feel the need to keep them covered of hidden away. For some of us, the idea of exposing of having someone touch our belly feels wildly uncomfortable. I totally get it. Last Summer, I moved past that uncomfortability and took an abdominal massage class. Let me tell you, I am not sure I ever want a massage without my abdominal region included again. It was by far one of the most relaxing and healing experiences despite my initial trepidation.
What was unexpected in both the giving and receiving of belly massage was how sacred this work feels. It's slow reverent techniques combined with the connection of breath and our solar plexus energy was gentle yet powerful. I could go on for days about all the benefits to both the digestive pathologies and muscles themselves as well as breathing support, and body positivity that can come from massage work in this area.
