Abdominal Massage Diagram

Below are the steps referred to throughout this site.  The beginner section is steps 1-5 which should be done for a week or so to loosen and clear the lower ab bowl so the stomach can come down where it belongs.  The beginner section helps the lower pelvic (bladder prostate, rectum, etc); the advanced helps the stomach, which in turn relieves the chest (heart), snoring, swallowing difficulties and other discomforts described on this site.  Here are the written instructions.

    #4 and #10 in your directions (above) refers to ‘jello’, does this mean that you shake the area like it wiggles like a bowl of jello?

    would you do the same procedure on pregnant ladies or alter the massage for them?

      Well Laura, it depends.
      If this is a high risk pregnancy, that is, the woman has had problems holding on to her babies, I would say definitely NO. She needs other interventions.
      If the woman is very early in the pregnancy – not showing at all, gently doing steps 1 and 5 should be fine, but she should do these on herself.
      As the pregnancy procedes, she won’t have access to the tissues that need the massage encouragement.
      It would be more important to do the ab massage after baby is born. Some experienced and intuitive midwives have specific strokes they use to help mommy’s tummy return to normal and can coach mommy what to do.

    My adult daughter has been diagnosed with rare non painful twitching toes syndrome, sometimes related to restless leg syndrome- which she does not have). Toes on both feet twitch constantly and started about a year ago during a very stressful time in our family. She was told there is no medication to help nor is there a cure for this continuing problem.
    Any advice?
