The proposed protocol for stomach massage can be very beneficial for people who suffer from constipation. In such a case, you should perform the proposed protocol for 15-18 minutes. I highly recommend in case of constipation to provide abdominal massage at least twice a week for 4 weeks. The other full-body techniques do not have to be incorporated in this specific treatment. In cases of diabetes type 2, the proposed abdominal massage protocol could also be very beneficial. In such a case, in addition to full body techniques perform for at least an additional 3-5 minutes, techniques of step #5. Remember, topographically the pancreas is located under your hands. In order to stimulate pancreas effectively and safely, please increase the pressure gradually.
