The esophagus runs through the diaphragm to the stomach. It function is to carry food from the mouth to the stomach.The esophagus passes through the diaphragm just before it meets the stomach, through an opening called the esophageal hiatus.
When the diaphragm muscle becomes stressed this can cause heartburn (gastro-esophageal reflux: GER) as gastric acid backflows from the stomach into the esophagus.
It usually requires only one or two Body Stress Release sessions to release the stress on the diaphragm muscle so that there is no longer gastric acid backflowing into the esophagus. Truly natural heartburn relief!
