The Colon massage designed primarily to support the colon in its function of absorption, digestion and excretion
If you have 3-5 consecutive colon massage treatments, taken over a period of 1 week, gives the best results. For instance a treatment on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. If the Colon has become sluggish and needs stimulating it supporting the return of optimal function. The massage is working to increase: peristalsis, lymph, circulation and blood flow within the abdominal area. Therefore generally supporting the body and digestive tract.
The Colon is one of our main Detox organs, aiding the excretion and removal of waste from the body. A build-up of waste in the intestines due to sluggishness can lead to illness. However, keep the intestines clear the body can maintain health.
Comprises of an abdominal massage using No Hands Massage® Techniques for the abdomen. Before I work the colon, I use gentle non-invasive strokes that encourage the abdomen to soften. I now can commence with a gentle but deep massage to the colon. You’re totally in control and I support you throughout the treatment.
Pre Treatment :
We require a comprehensive account of your digestive system workings. This helps you to meet your needs. Keep a food diary for a few days also helps. Fill in the form and submit it to Jac before treatment. We can discuss this during your free consultation over the phone. The Bristol stool chart will help you with this, together with recording the smell and colour of your stools.
During Treatment :
Before the massage commences I will Teach you hand signals. You remain totally in control of the massage during the colon work. I stop at your command. It’s important for you to belly breath. If you are unsure what this is Jacqueline will teach you this breathing method. As a result of this breathing, it becomes easier for you to let go. Once the abdomen has softened and you are ready the work will begin. Remembering to use the hand signals, working with you and your breaths Jacqueline will commence working the colon. Starting at the caecum and slowly working around the colon to the sigmoid colon. At any time if there is any discomfort, physical or emotional the treatment stops immediately. Returning to gentle non-invasive massage strokes when you’re ready. Only if you want to continue with the treatment will the colon work begin again.
Subsequently, take time to settle. I encourage you not to move straight away and to get up slowly. Afterwards, take your time getting ready to leave. The massage takes 30 minutes, the treatment times an hour giving extra time for you to rest. Over the next few days keep a record of your bowel actions. Of any other changes, you are aware of in your body. For example increased energy, undisturbed sleep or other.
