Functional Visceral Therapy or Old Slavic Stomach Massage
This soft massage of the abdominal cavity is an age old method, widely practiced for centuries in pre-war Poland. The masseur is able to relax the fascia and smooth muscles through the gentle touch of individual abdominal zones and introduce the body to a state of deep relaxation. It improves blood and lymph circulation, which helps to keep our internal organs in good condition.
Like cupping and acupressure, the method is as old as the world. It comes from traditional Slavic medicine. Its essence is mainly prevention of abdominal dysfunction. Working with minimal pressure, the therapist is able to achieve deep relaxation of the smooth muscles of the internal organs, as well as tensions between the individual organs and the spine.
As a result, the circulation of body fluids, i.e. blood and lymph, improves significantly, and thus the work of key organs, i.e. stomach, liver, gallbladder and pancreas, which in turn is of great importance for the quality of our digestion. In addition to the digestive organs, you can improve your uterus, ovaries, breasts, prostate, bladder, kidneys. One of the main causes of abdominal dysfunction is emotional tension. Therefore, the treatment of Functional Visceral Therapy should gently relax the tension of the organs of the abdominal cavity and calm down emotions. Massage perfectly detoxifies the body and prevents the formation of many abnormalities in the digestive and genitourinary system (including constipation, appendicitis, irritable bowel syndrome, stones in the kidneys and follicle). If, however, an organ disorder has developed into a disease, visceral therapy is a fantastic tool to support the recovery process.
