Abdominal Massage Therapy for Constipation
Constipation is one of the most common digestive troubles, and it impacts more people than you would think regularly. But, here at Impact Medical in Miami, we bet that if you’re reading this now that you know the pain and discomfort that comes from constipation.
You may find yourself curled over in pain with no idea how to relieve it—or even struggling to have consistent and regular bowel movements without having to take supplements and over-the-counter medications. But did you know that there is a relief for your constipation that can come from something as simple as massage therapy?
If you find that you’re struggling with abdominal pain due to constipation, you may want to consider trying abdominal massage therapy from a professional massage therapist who’s experienced in helping others just like you relieve their constipation through natural, medication-free ways.
What Is Constipation?
Constipation happens when your bowel movements have become less frequent, typically when you’re going fewer than three times per week. It can also refer to when it’s difficult to pass your bowel movements. The decrease in bowel movements you’re experiencing can last for several weeks, if not longer. Sometimes you will find that your stools are hard and dry.
What Are the Symptoms?
While constipation is a very common thing for many Americans, it’s essential to understand what the symptoms are so you know when to seek the help of a professional massage therapist for targeted massage therapy to relieve your constipation.
These are some of the most common symptoms of constipation:
- Having less than three stools a week.
- Lumpy or hard stools.
- Straining or struggling to pass bowel movements.
- Feel like there is a blockage in your rectum that prevents movement.
- Feel like you can’t empty your stool.
- Need any kind of help to empty your rectum, such as pressing on your abdomen with your hands and using a finger to remove stool from your rectum.
If you’ve been experiencing any of these symptoms regularly, then it’s worth it to call a massage therapy clinic that specializes in abdominal massage for constipation. The good news is that Impact Medical in Miami has the skills, experienced, and knowledge to help you get the relief from constipation you need to live a healthier life.
Why Abdominal Massage Works?
Targeted abdominal massage can be highly effective in treating your chronic constipation. Because when a professional massage therapist does it, they’re trained in how to help:
- Increase the frequency of your bowel movements.
- Decrease colonic transit time.
- Relieve pain and discomfort.
That’s because abdominal massage has been shown to help stimulate the muscle contractions that help you pass your bowel movements, especially in people with post-surgical ileus.
By getting regular massages, you can relieve constipation because massage therapy is designed to help you release gas and waste products stuck in your intestines and rectum. It may also help treat other underlying or accompanying conditions that you’re experiencing. For example, did you know that regular massage can reduce your stress and, in turn, lower the pain associated with irritable bowel syndrome?
