Do you know that the fascia in and around the abdominal area can get really sticky and gooey from sedentary lifestyle, bad diet and stress triggers?

And bloating in this area can also lead to back pain, neck and shoulder tension, a sense of being “uprooted”, and more anxiety?

This is a simple 10 mins gentle self massage for the belly area to release tension and bloating, tone our vagal nerve (reset our nervous system), and reconnect with our navel centre which is the core of our being.
