Many occupational hazards of adult life will be greatly alleviated by massage:

  • aching back and shoulder after a long office stint
  • exhaustion or overstrained muscles from physical labor or excessive exercise
  • circulatory problems from too little exercise by sedentary workers.
Massage can benefit you right down to the cellular level!

Abdominal Massage Sequence

Notes on Positioning: Take out bolster. Leave 8-10" hem at top. Have client lift legs and point feet towards each other, then tuck draping under feet. Then do U draping for stomach. It helps if you left material in the abdominal area. Work from client's right side. For the gymnastics, put client's knees down [hold sheet at waist as you are doing so].

  1. Wringing over abdomen.
  2. Face head of table and outline the ribcage with thumbs from sternum down to table (upon client's exhalation) and continue by tracing iliac crest using flat fingers from table to center of abdomen. Do this three times, about as fast as client breathes.
  3. From right of client, petrissage full abdomen. Start at opposite side from you and work toward you, then back to center.
  4. Friction: Three concentric circles over the small intestines using flat fingertips (start at umbilicus, work each circle a little larger in a clockwise direction).
  5. Friction: Flat fingertips tracing large intestines (ascending, transverse, and descending) plus stationary vibration over sigmoid flexure (three times).
  6. Vibration - stationary - over spleen, liver, and gallbladder area, on client's exhalation. This amounts to twice on client's right side, once on left.
  7. Vibration of abdominal wall on client's exhalation (reach under client's back and jostle abdominal wall, table to center of abdomen. Do this three times. Start underneath ribcage, anterior.
  8. Gymnastics: stretch obliques by stabilizing hip and lifting ribcage in two or three positions. Repeat other side. Lift straight up.
  9. Wringing over abdomen.
  10. Goodbye.
