The best time to do your massage is in the evenings just before you go to sleep, take a few minutes to get yourself comfy and prop your knees up with pillows so your belly can be soft. The routine takes 5 minutes or so and will leave you relaxed and ready for a beautiful night’s sleep.

The gentle massage is safe except for a few exceptions, do not massage your belly –

  • a few days before, during or immediately after your period.
  • If you have an IUD or coil of any kind
  • If you think you might be pregnant
  • If you have an infection
  • Or if you’re taking painkillers which might mask any pain

Just remember to be gentle, use slow, soft strokes and make sure it feels good!

Be gentle with yourself as your body becomes more alive; you may start to experience new sensations in your belly as the circulation and lymph flow improves. Your next period may be heavier or shed clots, this is old tissue being released. You might also find yourself feeling more vulnerable or working through painful issues in your life, remember to be kind and give yourself permission to take time out for this.
