Digestion symptoms can range widely, including too fast, to too slow, cramping, bloating, and nausea. Causes can be from stress, food sensitivities, medications and medical conditions such as MS, cancer, HIV/AIDS, celiac, Lyme disease. Shiatsu massage worked directly on the abdomen is an effective way to help ease digestive symptoms.  A trained Shiatsu practitioner can vary the pressure from very light with the finger tips to gently with the palms of the hands. The approach is about balance. Calming down what is painful, cramping or too fast, while speeding up what is too slow or stuck. Shiatsu increases blood flow and circulation while calming the system.
