"You are indeed a gifted healer. Our first session together in which you were drawn to work mostly energetically rather than with massage was intense, lasting and healing in ways that words cannot express. It was also fascinating that two souls could meet for the first time and experience the depth of movement and emotion that arose from your work." Leslie, Seattle
It is used for both women, men, and young women ages 10 and up. My sessions offer a richly diverse approach including electro-lymphatic therapy, breath work, herbal applications, and energy work. Maya Abdominal Massage Promotes Optimal Alignment of the Abdominal Organs and/or the Womb. It helps to increase organ function optimization for those with digestive complaints and enhances fertility and reproductive health. The session is very soothing and nurturing for the nervous system!
Healing takes time, especially when our body has been out of alignment for a long period of time, or there has been trauma. For some, it may take one treatment. Most likely it will take a series of 3, or up to several months for the work to integrate and the body to realign. Ligaments and muscles need time to re-strengthen and adjust to their new positions in the body. This is not a quick fix and we can assess during your first session. All of this work is done externally, making it safe and appropriate for both men and women.
For more information about Maya Abdominal Massage and my approach, please visit my blog. Maya Abdominal Massage may help with the following symptoms
Fertility Helps to re-align the uterus and increase blood flow to reproductive organs for optimal function. Develops a strong connection between a woman, her womb, & her body.
Dysmenorrhea (Painful Cycle), Menorrhagia (heavy cycle), Amenorrhea (No cycle) Assists in increasing blood flow to the entire pelvis and balances hormones through detoxification of the liver and digestive organs.
Post Partum Support Supports the body in the healing process by softening scar tissue from c-sections and repositioning the uterus.
Supports the body after miscarriage By reconnecting women to their center and cleansing the womb thru gentle massage and supportive, nurturing touch. Supports a woman's nervous system and allows her space to heal the nervous system and feel supported.
Peri-menopause & Menopause By assisting the body to naturally balance hormones and harmonize the body-mind connection.
Chronic pelvic pain and lower back pain Massaging the entire pelvic bowl and easing the tissue around the sacrum helps to decrease pain and increase circulation to the pelvis. This is VERY effective in the treatment of chronic low back pain, sciatica, inflammation of the prostate & pelvic inflammatory disease.
Digestive disorders Decreases inflammation and helps ease discomfort caused by disorders such as SIBO, Chron's Disease, IBS, Lyme Disease, Illiocecal Valve Dysfunction, spastic colon, & chronic constipation. The intestines can kink and rotate when our body is stressed, causing more dysfunction in the gut. The massage helps to reposition organs for optimal function and motility.
Urinary issues We indirectly work with the bladder, externally, by easing the tissues and ligaments that support the bladder and can cause inflammatory complaints such as: interstitial cystitis, painful urination, frequency & urges.
Hiatal hernia and acid reflux I work to pull the duodenum back into the correct position, which can cause reflux to occur if the organs are being stressed. This can be caused my tight musculature of this region and tightness in the diaphragm, all of which are released with breath work and massage.
Support after abdominal and reproductive surgeries Helps to restore function of the gut and soften scar tissue, which can cause digestive issues due to scar tissue constricting the gut. We also work to increase circulation and reposition organs after surgery.
My work is forever transforming and growing into broader offerings, not only working with reproductive issues, but also with more intense complaints such as chronic pelvic pain both in men and women; working with softening severe scar tissue from past surgeries, such as c-section & abdominal surgeries, which cause disruption in digestive function; and working directly with the nervous system after trauma from surgeries and intense life experiences. I have also found the work is extremely helpful in decreasing inflammation caused by Lyme Disease & most auto immune disorders.
