What is Mizan?

Mizan means balance. Mizan is a gentle but effective way of massaging the abdomen and back that improves the flow of circulatory fluids of the blood, lymph and nervous systems, to strengthen the muscles and ligaments that hold the internal organs in their optimum positions. Mizan relieves congestion and helps to remove blockages to stimulate physical and emotional health and well-being. It improves the health of the reproductive system, as well as benefiting the digestive system. In other words, it brings balance to your body, mind and spirit.

What can I expect during and after treatment?

I make sure to create a warm and secure atmosphere, to listen to everything you want to say with an open heart, to make space to any feelings and emotions that need to be expressed either during consultation or the massage. Some women cry, some laugh, others fall asleep when I perform Mizan on them. Everything is welcomed. It is your safe space to open up as much as you feel comfortable with. I am here to hold space, to witness, to accompany you on this journey and provide the tools. I deeply believe that only you know what is really needed for your own healing to happen. My job is to be your gentle healing companion. 

After the treatment you might feel tired and sleepy. As with any holistic therapy treatment, Mizan aids the flow of energy within the body. This allows the body to release built up toxins and negative energy, stress or tension.

Sometimes, when our bodies are healing, we can temporarily feel worse before we get better, this is part of the healing process. Some people describe this occurrence as a healing crisis. This doesn’t affect everyone and often a healing crisis will only happen after an initial treatment, due to the intensity of the healing or physical and emotional release.

Clients may experience:

• Fatigue

• Excessive urination or bowel movement

• Tingling or itching following stress release

• Slight cold

• Nausea

• Headache

• A very heavy or painful period

• An early period

• Lightheadedness

How should I take care of myself after the treatment?

Following a treatment, it is advisable to:

• Drink plenty of water to rehydrate and assist the release of toxins

• Rest if possible

• Avoid alcohol, heavy meals or stimulants such as caffeine

• Carry out self-care routines as advised by your practitioner, speak to your practitioner about which routines you are comfortable with

• Give yourself permission to heal and to let go of anything that is not serving you

• Be kind to yourself

Please get in touch with your practitioner if you have any concerns or would like to discuss how you are feeling. Sometimes further treatments will help to ease symptoms of a healing crisis. If you feel that your symptoms are chronic or severe please seek advice from your medical professional.

What are the contra-indications to Mizan therapy?

Massage should not be performed during menstruation. Your womb is busy enough during this time. Mizan should not be performed during the first trimester of pregnancy and if there is cancer present in the pelvis. If you have an IUD, I do not perform the lower abdomen strokes but the rest of the treatment is the same.

What is involved with self-care?

I will teach you a self-massage routine that is simple but, if done regularly, can greatly support your healing process. It is a wonderful way to wind down after a busy day, check-in with your body and emotions, and give yourself the much needed love and attention. If you decide to support your healing with tinctures, yoni steaming or castor oil packs, you will be given detailed instructions on how to use these tools.
