Belly Massage for Healthy Digestion

Your health is in your hands and we, at American Health Acupuncture – Tucson Clinic,  strive to help you in every way we can to achieve optimum health.  Here is another technique that you can use to maintain your organs functioning efficiently. The goal of this therapy is to massage your intestines, stomach, liver, kidneys, lungs, spleen and the muscles that hold them inside.  You do this by massaging your stomach in a circular way around your navel.

It is more comfortable when done in an empty stomach. Begin with light pressure, then increase it but make sure that it is not painful.

While you shower, massage your stomach as follows:

  1. Before you rinse the soap from your stomach, put both hands (one on top of the other) just below your navel and begin to move them towards your left, continue in this direction around your navel for 12 cycles. This portion removes blockages that prevent your digestive system from operating 100%
  2. Now reverse the direction, move your hands to your right and continue around your navel for 12 cycles.  This energizes the digestive system to function 100%.

By doing this technique several times a week your digestive system will function efficiently!
