Class lead by Christopher Ray
Abdominal massage is perhaps one of the most profound forms of bodywork. The majority of physical and emotional imbalances and congestion are stored in the abdomen, yet ironically, abdominal massage has become virtually a lost art and science. Almost all energy lines and physical communication systems (blood, lymph, nerves) pass through the abdomen, and this area becomes a ‘dumping ground’ for stagnant energy. In addition to addressing physical ailments associated with all the internal organs, this work is proven to have incredible healing effects throughout the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. Abdominal massage is patient work; truly an art and dance crafted with grace. This class will proceed with careful awareness and attention to anatomy, energy flow, and the breath.
