Benefits of Mizan Therapy
Digestive and Emotional Benefits
When the digestive system is working as it should, we are happily oblivious. But when it goes awry it can quickly aﬀect our quality of life.
Good health starts with the gut and if it is not operative eﬃciently there will not be optimum health. The gut has its own nervous system – the Enteric Nervous System – sometimes called the second brain and it is intricately linked to our state of mind, hence “butterﬂies in the stomach” before an important event; feeling sick after hearing bad news; vomiting with shock; having a “gut feeling”; a stomach “tied up in knots”….our language is full of the link between mind and gut.
But those butterﬂies in your stomach, if unaddressed, can lead to constipation, indigestion, heartburn, gastritis and eventually to Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Gastro Oesophageal Reﬂux, Crohn’s and more.
Many of these common disorders will be treated with a variety of medications that address the symptoms, but not the cause of the problem.
Mizan Therapy addresses the cause of digestive disorders. The diaphragm is gently massaged allowing relaxation of tight musculature, improving fascial adhesions, scar tissue and removing kinks in the digestive tract. It loosens tight muscles around the stomach and the organs of the digestive and elimination system. Even one massage can bring about dramatic improvement.
Mizan Therapy is a great way to support fertility. If the womb is not in her optimum position there can be interference in the hormonal system which can impede conception. Mizan also increases blood ﬂow, nourishing and restoring reproductive organs to health, improving detoxiﬁcation, relieving congestion and removing emotional blockages. This will give your body the best chance to conceive and nurture a growing baby.
Many women with fertility problems conceive following a succession of Mizan sessions and those who don’t conceive naturally often go on to have successful IVF cycles.
Benefits for women who have had a hysterectomy
Women who have had a hysterectomy beneﬁt greatly from Mizan Therapy. It improves circulation in and around the area of the scar. When circulation is improved, scar tissue will be prevented from forming following surgery and old scar tissue is broken down by treatment. Ligaments and other remaining organs beneﬁt from the improved circulatory ﬂow to the pelvis.
In addition there can be much emotional scarring following the removal of the womb and Mizan can help women come to terms with the surgery.
The womb may no longer by present, but her spirit lives on.
Benefits following Caesarean section
I believe that many Caesarean births could be prevented if mothers received this massage during their pregnancy. Mizan can ensure a correctly positioned baby and a strong healthy womb makes labour more eﬃcient.
For women who have had a Caesarean section, Mizan is beneﬁcial for breaking up scar tissue in the same way that it works for women who have had hysterectomies. Resolution of scar tissue prevents the womb becoming stuck to other pelvic organs and fascia and helps to get the mother centred and ready for her next pregnancy.
Benefits following abdominal surgery
Scar tissue and fascial adhesions can often cause problems with digestion after abdominal surgery. Again, by improving circulation it breaks down the scar tissue and adhesions from past or present surgeries. A few sessions combined with castor oil packs, diet and self-care massage are often used for optimal success.
Benefits during pregnancy
By strengthening and toning the uterus, ligaments and other pelvic organs, Mizan Therapy helps to place and maintain the womb in her optimal position for giving birth.
The well-being of the mother and baby are improved as they prepare for labour and birth. A good blood supply in and out of the womb ensures optimum nutrition for the developing baby.
With the womb is health and centred in the pelvis, baby is able to get into optimum position ready for the birth, which leads to a shorter, easier labour and birth for both mum and baby.
