Digestive Issues

Areas Treated: head, neck, shoulders, underarms, chest, lungs, abdomen, legs, feet, back and upper gluteal muscles

Gillian’s integrative Massage Therapy approach is very effective in the treatment of Digestive Conditions (IBS, Leaky Gut, GERD, Diverticulitis, gas, & bloating). A stressful lifestyle, processed food, pollution, inadequate hydration, lymphatic congestion and lack of self-care contribute to high acidity, inflammation, cortisol and adrenaline. These factors create digestive/intestinal imbalances between good and bad gut bacteria, as well, as nutritional deficiencies.

Specifically Gillian’s application of the Massage Therapy techniques of Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) and Essential Oils deeply calms your nervous system and digestive tract. Also detoxes your cells, skin, lymph, muscle fibers, digestive organs, brain, and energetic body. As a result, there is a strengthening of your Gut Biome (intestinal mucosal lining) which is one the sites of your immune system.

Gillian treats your head, neck, shoulders, under arms, chest, abdomen, legs, feet and back. The experience creates a gentle rhythmic wave-like motion that uses both palms and soft fingers. This improves both lymphatic and vascular circulation.
