Abdominal cramps can be the abdominal muscles cramping and spasming or it can be the stomach or intestinal organs strongly contracting. Side bending poses will activate the Liver, Gall Bladder and Stomach energy channels to move any stuck energy in the abdomen. Abdominal opening poses will stretch the abdominal muscles and organs so take these poses slowly and gently. If the cramps are mild, abdominal massaging poses will circulate the energy in the abdomen and soothe the internal organs.
