What is colon/abdominal massage?

Colon Massage is an external, non invasive abdominal massage to treating the colon and associated abdominal organs of digestion. Colon Massage uses a variety of Eastern and Western techniques to treat the colon holistically.  Colon massage seeks to restore the whole digestive system to its pre-stressed state, by relaxing all the muscles involved and getting them working properly, settling the nerves and taking the tension out of the fascia surrounding all the vital organs.  Using traditional acupressure and western deep tissue massage techniques this truly holistic approach to abdominal health has very profound effects.
