Abdominal Massage for Regularity
Abdominal massage is useful in treatment of constipation.
This method stimulates the peristalsis of the small intestines, tones up the muscles of the
abdomen walls and mechanically eliminates the contents of both large and small intestines.
Abdominal massage should not be done in general, femoral, inguinal and umbilical hernia,
inflammation of the uterus, bladder, ovaries and fallopian tubes, kidney stones, bladder or gall
bladder, ulcers of the stomach and intestines, and pregnancy.
Abdominal massage should not be done after a heavy meal, but after two hours or so. The
bladder should be emptied before the massage. The patient is made to lie on his back with his
knees drawn up. This enables the abdomen wall to relax. The masseur should stand at the
right side of the patient and use his finger tips for friction round the umbilical region from right
to left. He should likewise alternatively knead the walls and roll with both hands, making deep
and firm pressure. He should knead with the hand and finger tips and keep clear of any wound
or tender places. He should later take up massaging of the larger intestines.
The manipulation of the large intestine should begin on the right side. Keep it going upwards
and across the transverse colon and move right down on the left side to the sigmoid flexure
and rectum. Circular kneading should be done with the help of the three middle fingers. At the
same time press into the contents of the abdomen, following the course of the larger colon with
a crawling motion. Keep kneading by means of a few circular movements in one spot with the
help of finger tips. Keep moving the fingers a little further along. Knead repeatedly. Use
knuckles of the hand to make deep pressure along the large colon, moving the hands along
after each pressure.
Once the kneading of the abdomen is over, follow up by tapotement with both hands cupped or
use the knuckles of the hand. Vibration may also be employed. The patient could also be
asked to do some gymnastic exercises for strengthening the walls of the abdomen. Since
blood pressure increases during abdominal manipulation, patients with hypertension should
avoid abdominal massage. Massage should also be avoided in cases where there has been
recent bleeding in the lungs, the stomach or the brain.

Naturopathy is a system of medicine recognised under Indian System of Medicine. Naturopathy is based on the principle that all diseases are caused due to accumulation of waste material and toxins in the body and hence can be treated in similar way by reducing the toxins. As simple as it may sound, it is perhaps the most profound medical science that focuses on root cause of the disease and heals from within. It uses the inherent healing capacity of body and supports it by using elements of Nature.
 
How qualified are Naturopathic Doctors?

TOP

Naturopathic Doctors train extensively in the conventional medical sciences as well as in clinical nutrition, diet, botanical medicine, physical medicine, hydrotherapy, and counseling. There are more than a dozen govt approved colleges in India imparting Bachelor of Naturopathy & Yogic Sciences degree. Students here undergo 4.5 year of education followed by one year of internship similar to any other medical bachelor degree in India. However in India, for historical reasons, currently there is no licensing requirement for Naturopaths and anybody with knowledge of Naturopathy can practice the science.
