Colon & Deep Organ Massage

Sonja Macura qualified with a diploma in Colon & Deep Organ Massage in 2013. Her decision to practice this treatment came from years of practising colon hydrotherapy and from seeing hundreds of nutritional and colonic clients with digestive system problems. Sonja offers these treatments as massage therapy and also assimilates colon massage into the hydrotherapy treatments.

What is Colon Massage

This unique, external massage therapy originates from Thailand and combines with western style massage. It involves various massage techniques to the abdomen along with acupressure to the face, head, neck, shoulders, legs and feet.

The main principle of this massage is that it has a direct and positive effect on the organs including the colon, small intestine, liver, gall bladder, spleen and diaphragm. It may also benefit the following:

Stress and anxiety

People with stress and anxiety are the most commonly seen for this therapy. Stress is a huge trigger of illness and can impact on the digestive system and may also cause breathing difficulties. The more stressed we are the less efficiently our systems work. Adrenal output impacts directly on digestion resulting in poor uptake of nutrients, lowering our resistance to infection.

Colon massage may help to release tensions within the fascia of the organs, assisting normal functioning of the colon, liver and spleen helping relieve anxiety physically, mentally and emotionally.

Food Allergies

Food allergies have become more common in the last thirty years. This can be as a result of poor or inappropriate diet, poor immune function associated with the gut terrain, or it may originate from another problem with the colon. Food sensitivities can cause bloating, flatulence, abdominal discomfort, nausea, gurgling stomach and IBS. The massage techniques used can help support people with coeliac disease, gluten sensitivity, lactose intolerance and generally people who are experiencing abdominal symptoms within 2-4 hours of eating. Food allergies or intolerances may accompany candida or yeast infection as a direct result of gut dysbiosis and poor immune function. Absorption of food may be compromised preventing the uptake of valuable nutrients further hampering the reduction in immunity. Along with massage techniques Sonja uses lymph drainage and acupressure to help support this.

Sedentary lifestyle

A sedentary lifestyle often originates from sitting down at an office or driving job, or from digestive problems. The abdomen can become tense and congested from sitting at a computer for many hours or driving for extensive periods.

The fascia around the muscles can thicken and become chronically tight. These can change the posture and the impact on muscle function. Sonja uses massage techniques to support the abdominal muscles so helping the colon, diaphragm and posture.
