Hi,

I have a small hiatus hernia, and I did have massage on that area for about 6 weeks, unfortunatly it did not work for me. I'm not sure that it can work for reflux as it seems to be a lax sphincter or a hernia that allows the acid to get through, so the LES sphincter needs tightening up, however anything's worth a try.

what i understand now is when we hold tension in the solar plexus area this can affect the funtion of the vagus nerve,thus affecting the funtion of the stomach.Releasing tension or fascia allows for better funtion.

I read up a lot about chiropractors that specialize in helping with reflux, as well as acupuncture. I did go ahead and have the Nissen Fundo surgery because I acquired Barrett's Esophagus and felt I needed more of a western medical philosophy. I think it was a good decision, but as I mentioned on this forum prior, I do wish I would have tried the least invasive surgeries first. And I do wish I would have tried numerous chiropractor sessions, as I know a really good one in my area and he would have been totally honest with me if he felt it ultimately did not appear to be working.

My advice is start with natural methods, and if they don't work, move on to the lesser procedures; LINX, endo cinch etc., before you have the full Nissen. Like I said, I am at peace with my decision and do feel it made a difference, but wish I would have done some other things first. Best of luck!

when a diaphram is tight it can cause a plethora of problems.It can constrict blood flow to the lower body by much as 40%,which is a factor in varicose veins,aching,tingling legs ,sore feet and heels.The oesopagus passes through tha diaphram,constricting here can and normally does lead to digestive problems,ibs heartburn and GERD.This is why breathing into the abdomen can help ,and with muscle fa scia release will help to cure the problems. The method used is called muscle-fascia intergration. www.mfi-therapy.com look for the testimonials. Hope this can help to clear some minds
