Acupuncture and Digestive Symptoms
Acupuncture can reduce inflammation, balance the immune system and encourage regeneration of the mucosal barrier that lines the digestive system. Acupuncture can also stop gastro-intestinal bleeding, break down gallstones and encourage the liver to detoxify. Clients feel immediate relief from bloating, abdominal pain and other digestive symptoms.
Maya Abdominal Therapy and Digestive Symptoms
Maya Abdominal Therapy, known as the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™ is helpful for digestive symptoms by stimulating peristalsis and relaxing the abdominal tissue, there by creating a state of balance and harmony. Tension and muscle constriction in the diaphragm and other organ are released allowing them to move freely.
Maya Abdominal Therapy releases hidden emotions that are often at the root cause of digestive symptoms. Everyone stores emotions in the abdominal area and the release of constricted tissue corresponds with releasing negative emotional patterns. Clients find they are able to feel the connections made between the physical body and their emotions and allows for deeper healing.
