Logan Abdominal Massage FAQS

 

Q1: What is The Logan Abdominal Massage Method?

The Logan Abdominal Massage Method is a massage that can aid in treating gynecological and digestive conditions. It helps guide organs into their right position, improves circulation and relieves physical and emotional congestion. The techniques combine ancient Mayan wisdom and modern scientific knowledge of the internal organs, ligaments and connective tissue.

Q2: How does it differ from other massage techniques?

At the core of The Logan Abdominal Massage Method is the positioning of the uterus. The ancient Mayan culture believed that the position of the uterus is vital to pelvic health. If it is out of position, women can experience problems such as pelvic and menstrual pain, frequent urination, bladder problems, painful intercourse, adhesions, chronic cystitis, and problems conceiving to name a few.

Q3: How does the uterus become misplaced?

Normally the uterus leans slightly over the bladder in the centre of the pelvis, about one and a half inches above the pubic bone. It is held in this position by muscles, the vaginal wall and ligaments that attach it to the front, back, and sides of the pelvis. Uterine ligaments are made to stretch to accommodate a growing foetus inside and to move freely when the bladder or bowel is full.

The ligaments and muscles can weaken and loosen, causing the uterus to fall downward, forward, backward or to either side. Injury to the sacrum from a fall, car accidents, high impact exercise, running on cement surfaces, high impact aerobics and lifting and carrying heavy objects before or during menstruation and too soon after childbirth can all be causes of a misplaced uterus. 

A uterus in any of these positions is called tilted or prolapsed. Modern medicine has little or nothing to offer women with this problem. Options may include using the birth control pill, muscle relaxants, or surgery, and women are generally told, "your uterus is tipped, but that it is normal and not to worry about it."

Yet women experience numerous physical and emotional symptoms that can be addressed and prevented with these simple, non invasive massage techniques. The emphasis is on helping the body heal itself and to empower the client. The client becomes actively involved in their healing process. Each patient is shown how to perform their self care; this helps create a closer connection with the body. It is more than just a massage, patients also receive lifestyle and nutritional advice.

Q4: What conditions do you commonly treat?

Women are too often told that they should just grin and bear it, that it is normal to have discomfort during their periods. However a healthy uterus and reproductive area should not be painful. Our therapist has seen it over and over again how women’s symptoms are greatly helped through a combination of massage, self care, herbal remedies and naturopathic techniques.

The majority of our clients are female, even though the techniques are also suitable for male reproductive problems. Our therapist treats a lot of women with a wide range of reproductive problems such as: endometriosis, infertility, fibroids, menstrual cramping without any known cause, recovery from difficult labour, and prolapsed uterus.

The Logan Abdominal Massage Method works not only on a psychological level, but also on the emotional and spiritual aspect. Even women, who do not have gynecological problems as such, find that the work is greatly beneficial as it can help them to get in touch with their sense of womanhood.
