Hara (Abdominal) Massage @ Health Rediscovered, Glasgow
An ancient, traditional massage that focuses on the centre of our bodies – our abdomens. This area of our bodies houses our vital organs, a complex interconnected collection of organs including the stomach, spleen, liver, gall bladder, intestines both large and small, bladder and reproductive organs for females.
It is a gentle, deep, rhythmic massage that allows these organs to be soothed, which in turn sooths our nervious system so is a wonderful treatment for stress as well as more physical issues such as GORD, Hernia, infertility, heart burn and of course IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).
Paula often combines this treatment with acupuncture to further support an improvement in your health and well-being.
