No. The massage technique my pelvic physical therapist has me doing focuses on activating the ileocecal valve, then getting the "kinks out of the hose" by massaging the hepatic flexure toward the belly button, then the splenic flexure, and finally the sigmoid colon. My anatomy is a bit different because of my LAR, but the principle is the same.
