Shiatsu massage has been used for years due to its massive health benefits to rejuvenate and promote well-being. One of the most important benefits is to bring harmony to the gut. Unlike conventional medication that has side effects, shiatsu massage brings balance by triggering natural body healing.
And here is how this amazing massage achieves this. But before then, let’s have an overview of shiatsu massage. Have a look!
What is Shiatsu Massage?
A shiatsu massage is a form of massage therapy that helps promote physical, emotional and psychological well-being. Normally, the massage uses hands, elbows, palms, and feet to apply pressure to help bring relaxation and trigger natural body healing and balance. Unlike other massages, you do not need to remove your clothes.
Better still, shiatsu massage uses an acupressure technique, which helps release blocked energy. Unblocking these meridian lines helps relieve pressure and increase energy flow through every vital organ for optimal body function.
Those who gave Shiatsu massage a shot reported more mental focus, less stress, and reduced pain and anxiety. This amazing massage modality can also benefit people with gut issues like bloating, indigestion, and gut complications. And here is how this is possible.
How Shiatsu Massage Impacts Digestive Health
Activates the Parasympathetic Nervous System
The parasympathetic nervous system, aka "rest and digest, " is responsible for digestion. A shiatsu massage helps relax the nervous system and relieve tension, activating the parasympathetic nervous system.
Relief Discomfort and Tension
Digestive issues cause painful bloating and tension around the abdominal area. A shiatsu massage aims to relieve tension on muscles and nerves, which helps relax the abdominal area and alleviates discomfort.
Chronic stress is linked with digestive issues like bloating and indigestion. Shiatsu massage helps regulate stress levels, reducing the chances of developing gut issues.
Better Energy Flow
Certain acupressure points are connected to the digestive organs. Shiatsu massage therapists aim to massage these energy flow points (Qi), optimizing the digestive system function.
Digestive issues can mess up your daily activities and impact your performance. But with the help of regular shiatsu massages, you can successfully bring harmony to your gut.
