There are many reflex points on the surface of the abdomen that control intestinal activity. Many people suffer from mild abdominal discomfort: flatulence, pressure, cramps or slight pain in the abdomen, irregular bowel movements...
Abdominal compresses are an ideal treatment for these complaints. After a gentle oil massage of the abdomen, warm, moist cloths are applied and then left on the skin for a long time with a hot water bottle. This leads to deep relaxation in the entire abdominal area, triggered by a gentle activation of the parasympathetic nervous system. This results in an improvement in the processing and assimilation of the vital substances in the food as well as a strengthening of the immune system. Subliminal inflammation in the intestines ("leaky gut"), which can severely disrupt the entire body, can slowly but surely heal. This abdominal wrap is part of the "Nabhi Marma / Nabhi Svedana" exercises in the "Herbal Detox" webinar. Many participants in our webinars are particularly enthusiastic about this exercise.
Gentle abdominal massages are part of every Ayurvedic oil massage and can be intensified in their effect through targeted heat applications (Nabhi Svedana). The abdomen as the seat of the digestive organs and the "abdominal brain" deserves our special attention in maintaining health and curing diseases. Only a healthy abdomen enables balance of the doshas and the experience of well-being and happiness on all levels of life.
