Maya Abdominal Massage

What Is Maya Abdominal Massage?

Maya Abdominal Massage is a non-invasive external massage technique. It addresses the position of the uterus and the problems that can be caused by it being displaced. These techniques can also help alleviate common digestive complaints.

The uterus is held in place by ligaments. When stressed or strained, these ligaments can lead to the uterus being mal-positioned. This can be caused by:

Injury to the sacrum or tailbone from a fall, car accidents, etc.

Pelvic ligaments that have weakened from overstretching during pregnancy or birth

High impact exercise, running on cement surfaces, etc.

Lifting and carrying heavy objects before or during menstruation or too soon after childbirth

Chronic muscle spasm around the low back and sacrum

Emotional armoring from abuse at anytime in life

Time and gravity

Past surgeries

Weak pelvic floor muscles

Some of the conditions that can be improved by this type of massage include:

Painful periods and ovulation

Irregular menstrual cycles and ovulation

Infertility

Endometriosis

Bladder or yeast infections

Displaced or prolapsed uterus

PMS/Depression with menstruation

Perimenopause and menopausal symptoms
