Abdominal and Pelvic Massage Therapy

Your abdomen is the center of your being

Your abdominal area forms the basis for your health. Your intestines are called your second brain and your womb is the source of creation and intuition. All your emotions are formed here, but also stored, which can be translated in discomfort, pain, blockage or stagnation. With a supple belly full of flowing energy you immediately feel a lot more grounded and more aware of your possibilities. A soft supple belly will not only make your physical well-being more pleasant; it also ensures that you are emotionally much more balanced.

Through Abdominal and Pelvis Massage Therapy, traditional techniques are used to restore an imbalance in the reproductive and digestive organs. This imbalance can be physical, emotional or spiritual. Mirjam uses techniques that find their roots in South American, Asian, North African and Russian culture to promote optimal health for women. Her intuitive way of working is empathetic and caring. Addominal and Pelvic Massage benefits your physical health as it supports circulation and lymph drainage by relieving stagnation and blockages. The therapy consists of both gentle and deep massage of the abdominal and pelvic area, cupping, connective tissue massage, castor oil belly wraps and can be completed with herbs and tinctures. The treatments contribute to balance in the abdominal, uterine and pelvic area and are suitable for women of all ages. The uterus and other internal organs are invited to find their optimal place in the abdominal cavity, which will reduce or eliminate discomfort.

Abdominal and Pelvic Massage

During the 2-hour treatment we first discuss the current issues and what you want to work on. You are then welcome to rest on the massage table. Your abdominal area is treated through different techniques. You may become aware of tension or sensitivity. This is not always very pleasant, so you always remain the one who indicates how deep a touch may be.

I will invite you to use your breath or give sound to what you encounter, to be able to support yourself in your process. The starting point is that you feel safe to let go of what is needed. Mutual trust is very important in this.

Additional information from Cranio-Sacral Therapist Marie-Andrée Brands
“Our organs lie in membranes, which are loose but also hold the organs in place. Embedded in the membranes there are all kinds of connecting roads, such as neural pathways, blood vessels, lymph vessels etc. These membranes are very important. They work best when they are smooth. The abdominal and pelvic massage helps the membranes to continue to do their job. The body cramps inwardly when suddenly something painful happens, both physically and emotionally. We want to protect our body automatically. Because of the deep abdominal massage, there is unconscious contact with our survival mechanism. Releasing stress, old or new, in safety, makes us feel alive again. Hormones that are produced when the situation is safe again, such as oxytocines and serotonins, are re-created. “

“Mirjam is passionate and genuine about the work she offers, and I feel like I received so much more than I could have imagined during my Abdominal Massage Sessions. She listens deeply, and delivers with her whole heart, which made me feel completely taken care of and able to fully let go. This was exactly what I needed since I gave birth.”
