As a part of thai therapy and massage, thai abdominal massage is a crucial element of healthy connectedness to ones body.
By connecting to our belly and our organs we connect on a deeper level with ourselves not only physically, but emotionally and energetically as well.
Every organ has its special physiological function and is connected with the rest of the body. A lack of function in one area, affects the whole system bringing disbalance in the body leading to lack of health.
This state of lack of health may create a range of dis-orders that quite quickly have an impact on our mood and behavior, linking the organ system very closely to our psycho-emotional state. The language is very rich with phrases connecting the organs and emotions : to have a broken heart, to have the guts, to take the breath away…
