Digestive Massage Therapy
Did you know that Digestive problems are one of the most common ailments in today's society? *
Most people suffer from less than optimal digestion.
80% of our Immune System lives within our Digestive tract.
Why is it so important to maintain a healthy digestive system?
It is through our digestive system that our bodies receive the nourishment that we need to stay healthy. When we eat food that is right for us in a calm environment, taking time to relax and chew our food properly, our body is able to digest and use the nutrients efficiently.
However, most of the time, this is not the case. We eat on the go and grab something quick, usually a food that is not right for us, thus neglecting our digestive needs.
It is then, when the food becomes toxic and gradually causes stress and inflammation which in turn causes digestive complaints.
Did you know that your intestines is a muscular organ?
Your intestines has its own slow contracting rhythm which is called peristalsis. Peristalsis gently moves your food through your Digestive System until it is expelled as a stool. If this is not happening correctly, you can experience constipation or an accumulation of more severe Digestive Complaints as mentioned on the digestive complaints page.
A healthy digestive system is a happy and healthy you!
