Today (15th June 2015) marks the 13th anniversary of my departure from the UK to South Korea. An experience and adventure that has completely changed my life. My introduction to therapies began with abdominal massage, a treatment that lasted up to 90 mins and relaxed me in a way I didn’t think was possible, a few months later I had acupuncture and the rest, as the say is history!
The abdominal work I received whilst in South Korea I have never found a replacement for until this year! Hara massage is a wonderful, deeply relaxing, soothing treatment for body and soul. It begins with very gentle rocking to get the abdomen used to being touch, gradually getting deeper, past the superficial layers of muscle to the protected organs underneath. It encourages an improved flow of blood and lymph to all the internal organs, thus improving their function. It also encourages movement through the digestive system, improving bowel function. Working on the abdomen can also profoundly relaxing and release tension throughout our entire being.

Since completing my training in abdominal work, I have found it integrates perfectly with my acupuncture work in my Glasgow clinic – using it around ovulation time to enhance chances of conception, or for impacted bowels, or for heartburn, or to use as a stand alone treatment for general health
