How can your emotions or thoughts affect your gut health?
Emotion and thought are messengers and they are continuously communicating to the rest of the body about how things are going....
Your brain can create (using your imagination)..... possible future scenarios based on previous experiences - or versions of events that haven't even happened..... how many times have you dreaded/visualised an event and it all worked out much better than you had expected? Your brain can't tell if these scenarios are real or imagined and so it does it's best to protect you...
Positive or negative emotions and thoughts - signal very different types of hormones which are then released into your body..... so the hormones of positivity can help to enhance your wellbeing and you will generally feel nice or the hormones of negativity can fill your body with fear, avoidance....and dread which can make you feel tired and generally run down.
Your gut can be negatively affected by fear hormones because your body is running in survival mode (Fight or Flight) and when you are fearful or anxious the blood flow is reduced to your digestive and reproductive organs - because you don't need those parts of your body to escape from the perceived threat.
So how can massage help?
The soft fluid and pulsing movements of abdominal massage can help to relax your body, relieve tension and improve blood flow and nourishment to those very important organs...
