TCM massage for stomach ache 按摩治胃疼

My son had a busy Saturday last week. He went to a swimming class for an hour, then headed to a friend’s birthday party. They made their own pizza and played bowling while waiting the pizza to be baked. Then he finished the whole pizza (about 6 small pieces) plus one piece of birthday cake. After the party, he had a basketball game to play.  That was when the problem came after eating too much. He had a stomach ache half an hour before the game. He didn’t feel well not only because of the abdominal pain but also the possibility to miss the game.

Here is what I did to help him feel well again. I massaged his ST36 (Zusanli), LI10 (Shousanli), LI13 (Shouwuli) and the UB18-21 area on his back (Stomach Shu, Spleen Shu). Each for a minute or two. Then the pain and uncomfortableness were gone. He played the game from the beginning to the end because of their shortage of players. Hooray!

上个周六,我的大儿子去参加同学的生日会,吃了太多的比萨饼和一块蛋糕,还有果汁。这之后他还有一个篮球比赛需要参加。由于吃了太多东西,而且是边玩边吃,食物也不太健康,比赛前半个小时,他告诉我肚子有点疼,很担心不能参加比赛。我赶紧采取措施,按摩了他的足三里,手三里,手五里,还有背部的胃腧和脾腧部位。每个穴位大概一两分钟,按摩结束后他的不舒服没有了,而且因为只有五名队员,他参加比赛从头到尾没有休息。中医按摩很有效果吧!不过还是尽量保持饮食健康好!
