Bellywork- Massage for the Viscera
“The organs carry on the functions of our internal survival… They provide us with our sense of volume, full-bodiedness and organic authenticity. Organs are the primary habitats or natural environments of our emotions, aspirations, and the memories of our inner reactions to our personal histories.” Sensing, Feeling, and Action. Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen. Our overall inner health stems from both the vitality and function of our inner organs, as well as the health of our emotional reality. Our organs and our musculoskeletal structure are explicitly linked… Bellywork offers a direct, somatic dialogue with the organs and the fascia that connects them to our structure.
This conversation can support:
-Increased organ function and health
-Improved digestion and respiration
-Lower back pain
-More freedom of movement, expression, and aliveness of the organs and your structure
-Increased body awareness and depth of presence
Bellywork is integrated within the context of a ZenThai Shiatsu treatment, whereby your whole body will feel included and nourished.
