Pearl #4 – Self-Abdominal Massage

Self-Abdominal Massage stimulates the digestive fire (Agni, in Sanskrit),  increases the peristaltic action of the stomach and intestines, and releases tension in the viscera and abdominal muscles, which enables deeper breathing and improved metabolism. I encourage you to do this first thing in the morning (lying in bed), and last thing at night (lying in bed). Our internal organs carry a great deal of the tension and stress that we experience, and this gentle, abdominal massage releases tension and improves the quality of your sleep, as well.
