Abdominal massage significantly decreased the severity of gastrointestinal symptoms and increased bowel movements among people with constipation, according to recent research.

The study, “Effects of abdominal massage in management of constipation,” showed that abdominal massage had significantly decreased the severity of gastrointestinal symptoms assessed with GSRS, especially constipation and abdominal pain syndrome.

A complete Research Report on this study will run in the July/August issue of MASSAGE Magazine.
