Traditional Abdominal Massage (Certificate)
This course is a lovely opportunity to get in touch with the core of ourselves, to explore the belly and how to massage it deeply but safely & gently, with the due respect deserved by one of our most personal and powerful body areas. You will learn touch techniques to perform both on ourselves and on others, through the clothing and also directly on skin using oils or compresses.
The 2 day course is based on the principles of abdominal massage that reach back to ancient Taoist traditions. Focusing on the abdominal organs, it is a deeply relaxing and restoring treatment that can aid digestion, fertility, and reproductive and eliminatory systems, as well as promoting a sense of peace, calm and wellbeing.
Techniques from Thai massage, Shiatsu and Chi Nei Tsang are incorporated, including myofascial release, acupressure, breathwork, how to select appropriate types of oils, how to make and use a hot compress, and self care techniques. You also learn about the digestion, the enteric nervous system, (the intelligence of the belly), and how our organs respond to emotions and stress.

More about Abdominal Massage:
Known also as Hara Massage, Chi Nei Tsang, and Ampuku, there is no clear delineation between Thai, Chinese, Japanese, or other traditional Asian styles. Each borrows from the other so that it is hard to define which is which!
The belly is a revered centre of personal energy in Buddhist cultures, we only need to see the likenesses of Buddha and his sometimes enormous belly to get an isight into this! Martial artists are familiar with ‘coming from the hara’ – awareness of the ‘Dan Tien’ or ‘One Point’ area. Cultivating the power of this area is what eastern martial disciplines rely upon for effectiveness. It is the centre of our energy from where our instinctive responses stem, a place where we connect to ourselves, away from the chatter of the mind.
