Beautiful when simple things can create improved wellness & enjoyment of being. Today a woman who works at a place I provide chair massages at in Marin, was saying she was having abdominal discomfort and wasn't sure what else to do for it.
I suggested and showed her a simple way of helping create more flow in intestines , by having her roll her abdominal muscles in waves from side to side and vertically and front to back. Creating a type of internal self massaging for her abdominal organs. Supporting peristalsis for her intestines. Combined with encouragement to drink plenty of warm water regularly, which is easy to overlook in busy lifestyles.
Within a couple minutes of her doing it herself, a big smile emerged through her face and she happily exclaimed it actually helped. She was feeling much better.
Not everything is so simple, of course.
But much can be and is helped by making seemingly simple choices to be kind, honest, nurturing & appreciative to our self. And with each other. 💚
