Abdominal Massage - I have found that an abdominal massage, using light to medium pressure for up to 30 minutes really speeds up the digestive system and gets things moving. You can do a simple kind of massage yourself - just lie on your back in bed and massage your stomach and abdomen in a clockwise motion. Talk to your Naturopath about using a Castor Oil pack, too. Helps with gas, constipation and bloating, along with stress reduction.
