Acupressure Therapy : Acupressure & the Small Intestine


So,your small intestine giving you a little
bit of trouble, or you’ve heard that it is? Hi, my name is Mark Brinson, Doctor of Oriental
Medicine, Physical Medicine Specialist, and Human Performance Specialist. The small intestine
in Eastern Medicine, is tied very intimately to the heart channel. Both of which, can also
be tied to anxiety. If you’re searching for this on the internet, what you’ve probably
found, is that the small intestine is kind of a complicated area. There aren’t any specific
acupressure points, just for that, that I could recommend, because you could either
tonify it or sedate it, and it might not have the expected outcome that you want, but when
you’re treating this organ, what you probably want to do, is either move things along, or
you want to make things move along a little slower, so on the abdomen, you can do counterclockwise
motions, right around the umbilicus, through your belly button. That will stimulate the
function of the small intestines, and stimulate function of the large intestines, to help
with digestion, and elimination. Let’s say you might be eliminating a little bit too
much. What you can do, is counterclockwise motions, for a period of about one to two
minutes, and a little bit more vigorously than I’m doing now. This will help you retain
more fluids, and it will also help you cure any diarrhea that you might be having, but
as with anything, if you’re having persistent diarrhea, if you show any signs of fever,
make sure that you contact your health professional. My name is Dr. Mark Brinson, and I wish you
balance in your life.
