In 2013 I embarked on a series of belly-related trainings, starting with the Self Care course of Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™.
They practically begged me (and my friend and colleague Jackie) to go on to practitioner's level, which I was planning to do anyway. I first looked at this during my pregnancy massage training many moons ago, but was put off by the cost. It is a big investment, but at least I can now train in England rather than Belize. I continued Arvigo training with the Practitioner, Certification and Pregnancy course. (But Belize is calling, anyway).
I have also been at a "Love Your Guts" seminar, the first of three. We looked at, and worked on, all the layers of our belly, from the skin to the muscles in front of the spine, plus breath, lymphatic and energy work. Very powerful! The next two Love Your Guts seminars are specifically on the digestive system and the pelvis. Unfortunately there is no date scheduled in the UK.
What does that mean for you, actual or potential clients, members of the public? Even I, who had not had any abdominal surgery, digestive or other problems, found this work very moving (in more than one way). So you don't need to have anything wrong with you to benefit hugely …
However, belly massage could really help you, for instance, post-surgery, with IBS, diverticulitis, constipation, endometriosis, asthma, back and hip problems. If you think about it, the belly is the centre of our body,
helping everything to be at ease will affect you on many levels. And in
case you are wondering, it is safe and effective in pregnancy, too.
There are only a few conditions where it's definitely not advised, but
if you had those you would not be wondering about having a massage, you
would be very ill (acute inflammatory conditions, aortic aneurysm, heart
This massage is not of the quiet kind, you will learn about your guts, be encouraged to engage with your belly, breathe and connect, we will work together, go on a journey, be curious and playful, light-hearted and serious, go with the flow ...
After (abdominal) surgery it is best to start with Manual Lymph Drainage and Deep Oscillation as soon as possible. This will help with the initial healing, take away swelling and help you to cope better with your operation. After 3-4 weeks it is good to switch to massage and/or myofascial release that will help to prevent adhesions (stickiness of the tissues) and support your belly to heal in the best way possible. After 4 weeks the scar will not open again. If you think about it, belly massage will be no more vigorous or straining than coughing, straining on the toilet (might prevent even prevent or cure that!) or just doing exercise.
