Ask the Doctor – Strength Magazine – March, 1926

To get the best results in a prolapsed stomach, just spread a quilt or a: rug upon the floor. Lie prone on this, then flex the knees so as thoroughly to relax the abdomen. Then commence at the lowest part of the abdomen; grasp as much of the tissue as you can hold firmly in your hands. Exert strong rotary pressure, rolling the tissue deeply, always forcing the abdominal organs in an upward direction. ·Then gradually sink your hands deeper into the structures, carrying the pressure higher and higher toward the cavity of the thorax, or chest. Five minutes at a time is about all you will have strength for- without unduly tiring yourself.
