Be Kind to Your Tummy with Self-Massage
March 12, 2018
Try these simple self-massage techniques to help ease digestive discomfort.
As well as helping to ease sore muscles and relax your mind, massage can also be used to soothe the pain and discomfort of constipation. Massage helps to move waste products around the bowel if you’re constipated. As well as that, it also helps to indirectly relax your nervous system which can, in turn, ease the pressure from your gut.
Top Tips & Advice
Don’t try these techniques if you’re full from a meal. Avoid these massages if you’re pregnant, have inflammatory bowel disease, bowel disease or if you have bowel cancer.
