Abdominal Pain


Abdominal Pain can be caused by a number of things ranging from something as simple as intestinal gas to something serious like appendicitis.


The cause of abdominal pain needs to be diagnosed by a physician before any massage can take place. Massage may be effective in easing abdominal pain caused by menstrual cramps, in certain cases of chronic constipation or relieving intestinal gas. Massage should not be used with any undiagnosed or acute abdominal pain.
