The complete massage should take about 2-3 minutes and for the best relief, should be practiced a few times a day!

When starting the massage, apply pressure slowly and easily, progressively applying more pressure. However, avoid pressing down too hard, as this will compact the fecal matter and possibly result in more stagnant matter. The goal is to loosen it up and get it out of there!

When practicing this massage, notice if you feel any areas to be particularly painful. If a deep pain persists, consult a doctor.

In addition to loosening the fecal matter in your colon and relieving your bowels, a consistent colon massage will also promote the toning of your abs! So say goodbye to rabbit turds and hello to a flat belly and happy, healthy, solid poops!

i wanted to mention, that as a Licensed Massage Therapist I have been trained in colon, peristalsis massage. we are taught to Always Start at the lowest part of the descending colon - low left region FIRST! this Opens the channel for any flow coming from the other parts of the colon. Work descending, then transverse, then ascending.
