Belly Button Healing
Belly Button Healing is a unique method of self-healing created by the founder of Body & Brain. It is based on common knowledge that gut and digestive health play a crucial role in maintaining one's mood and overall wellness. As the centerpoint of your digestive tract, your belly button has the unique ability to deliver digestive and reproductive health as well as a wide array of emotional benefits when stimulated properly.
