Abdominal Massage For Constipation

I regularly use abdominal massage for constipation on patients in my clinic, combined with some of the other treatments explained on this site.

Besides my own clinical success, there's been a number of studies that prove abdominal massage for constipation is effective to increase bowel movements.

**********************************************
First, some "Avoids" for abdominal massage

  • Don't do it within 2 hours after a meal.
  • Don't do it while your bladder is full.
  • Avoid it if you have a hernia or ulcer.
  • Avoid abdominal massage if you have internal bleeding or inflammation of your lower abdomen.
  • Don't do it if you're pregnant or menstruating.
  • Don't do it if you have high blood pressure.
  • Avoid any excessively tender areas

Although Oriental medicine has several different and sophisticated ways to perform it, here's an effective and simple method to use that works for most people. And it is...

  1. Lay on your back with your knees slightly drawn up (this relaxes your abdomen).
  2. Lubricate your hands with massage or vegetable oil
  3. Use your palms (or flats of your fingers) to make clockwise motions (from right to left) around your navel.

*** Don't go counter-clockwise. That can help diarrhea, but may make your constipation worse.

It's pretty simple, but don't think that makes it less effective than a much more complex procedure. Used along with other Oriental medicine techniques, it's worked well for many of my patients... even when drugs and other therapies have failed.

Abdominal massage for constipation regulates peristalsis and helps your energy ("Qi") to move. Combined with other methods on this site (such has Chinese Dietary Principles, Oriental herbal remedies and acupressure), it can help you get over the most difficult constipation for good so you don't need laxatives and stool softeners.
