Massage improves the circulation in the abdomen. It supports the nervous system, soothing an overactive system or stimulating a sluggish system. Therapeutic massage stimulates the lymphatic system, encouraging the removal of waste products. Basically the organs in your belly get a general workout which helps them to function much better. Result? You feel better as well!
