Do you suffer from mild stomach disorders such as bloating, constipation or wind? Then you should be massaging your stomach area on a regular basis to help ease your problems.


In Traditional Chinese massage, a thorough stomach massage is considered essential as the stomach is the source of energy and also eliminates toxins.

A number of vital organs are situated in this area. Therapists say tension and negative emotions build up in these organs, causing congestion and blocking the body’s energy. This eventually weakens these organs, particularly the digestive system, causing problems such as irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, bloating and gas. Gentle massage of this region can re-energise your internal organs and release negative emotions.
