Massage of the abdomen is considered an integral component of therapeutic massage in countries around the world. Learn how to perform a comprehensive, 30-45 minute massage of the abdomen and anterior torso that combines fascial and Swedish techniques, to alleviate back pain, encourage effective bowel peristalsis, facilitate deep respiration, and release fascial restrictions. Massage of the abdomen can be a stand-alone treatment or integrated into a 90-minute session, to create a dynamic, unique client experience.
