The abdomen is a critical cavity in the body housing many vital organs and the digestive system. The digestive system is susceptible to weakness. This can happen through illness, or by not exercising enough and living a sedentary lifestyle. Abdominal massage is a practice that helps to tone and strengthen the muscles located in your abdomen. This helps your digestive system tremendously. The abdominal massage helps when you're trying to detoxify your body. So, it is strongly recommended that you perform an abdominal massage when you are on a colon cleansing program.
