The Science Behind Maya Abdominal Massage
Unmasking the Intricacies of Maya Abdominal Massage
While there might still be a few, albeit, diminishing skeptics, it's safe to say that the world has woken up to the powerful healing potential of traditional therapies. And one such therapy that has begun to lure the spotlight is Maya Abdominal Massage. It's come a long way from the rural corners of the Yucatan region of Central America. Even on this side of the planet, all the way in Perth, Australia, it's gathering some serious wind beneath its wings.
Now, before I got my first session from Mitchell, my dear uxor (that's Latin for wife, by the way, and since we're all science-y in this article, I thought it seemed fitting!), I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical. Oh boy, was I to be proven wrong! Yet, like most seriousness in life, let's squeeze a bit of light-heartedness into it. Shall we? After all, I'm writing this with our parrot, Pepper, squawking away in his over-excited ode to belly massages!
The A,B,C of Maya Abdominal Massage
I'm sure all you forward-thinking individuals out there have at least a basic gist of what Maya Abdominal Massage entails. Still, for the uninitiated, it's a non-invasive, external massage process designed to guide organs back to their optimum position, release physical and emotional congestion while improving overall health and wellbeing. It's a holistic approach that considers both physical and emotional aspects of health.
Originally passed down through generations by the Maya people of Central America, the massage has finally found its members spread globally, testifying to its efficacy. But like every good story, there's plenty of science holding up the magic of the Maya Abdominal Massage.
It's All About that Flow
In the context of the Maya Abdominal Massage, when we speak of flow, we aren't just referring to that eureka-flow of creativity. Rather, we dig deeper into the intricacies of our internal body and talk about the flow in our circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems.
Our body, with its intricate systems, functions best when everything is in sync, and there's a constant, unhindered flow. Blockages or obstructions in these systems can often lead to stagnant energy, resulting in physical discomfort such as digestive issues, menstrual pain and even emotional distress. And that's exactly what the Maya Abdominal Massage looks to address.
Diving into the Science
By physically manipulating specific parts of your abdominals, the massage can stimulate flow in your circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems, whilst also realigning mispositioned organs. It helps guide organs, primarily your uterus in women and prostate in men, back to their anatomically ideal positions.
Confused? Well, let's take a common condition to better understand this, shall we? Many women, about 75%, have a tilted or prolapsed uterus. This condition, often left untreated as it's routinely dismissed as 'normal', can lead to a host of symptoms. From chronic lower back pain, irregular and painful menstrual cycles, infertility, miscarriages, and more.
The Domino Effect of Alignment
By realigning the uterus, Maya Abdominal Massage hopes to enhance organ functions, alleviate these symptoms, and ultimately improve overall wellbeing. When organs occupy their respective, 'designated' spaces, everything seamlessly falls into place. Like dominoes perfectly aligned in a row, the minute one is set into motion, the rest follow!
For example, re-positioning a tilted uterus can relieve stress on ligaments and muscular structures in the pelvis, improving circulation and lymphatic drainage. With flow restored, your body can now easily supply essential nutrients to critical regions and flush-out toxins, leading to happier organs and, in effect, a happier you!
More Than Just the Physical
Now don't fret, lads, this therapy isn't just for the ladies! Men too can greatly benefit from this therapy. Remember, it isn't only about addressing physical discomfort but also delving into the emotional realm.
Our abdomen, often referred to as our second brain, is also a hotbed of emotions. Unaddressed emotions or stress can manifest themselves as physical symptoms, leading to chronic discomfort or pain over time. The massage, by stimulating that unadulterated flow, can help release these pent-up emotions, helping us feel emotionally lighter and more balanced.
Taking the Leap
For those who are still apprehensive about signing up for a session, I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone. Taking that leap into the unknown was certainly a game-changer for me. And hey, if nothing else, who wouldn't enjoy a good ol' belly rub? Might as well try it, right? Give it a chance, you may just find a therapy that works wonders for your overall well-being. Why just look at Pepper, squawking away in glee!
