    Our modern eating habits and increasing dependence on packed and ready to eat meals has lead not only to increased risk of heart diseases, obesity and diabetes, it has also disrupted our digestive system causing problems like indigestion, gas, constipation, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), heart burn, sour stomach, diarrhea, etc and most of us suffer from at least one of these problems although we don’t really speak up or do something to relieve it. The best way to treat all these issues is changing the eating pattern for good, but in the meantime acupressure and reflexology can be used effectively to relieve the painful side effects of an upset digestive system.

      If you perform some stretching exercise before Acupressure point therapy than its result is more effective and fast. It is important to stretch the entire body before beginning the acupressure session in order to unblock the blocked meridians and help the “qi” flow throughout the body that will make the session more effective.
      • Raise your arms above your head while breathing in and stretch backwards as much as you can without hurting yourself.
      • Count till 3 and come back to the original position while exhaling slowly.
      • Inhale and bend forward in the rag doll position while exhaling.
      • Count till 3 and come back to the starting position while inhaling.
      • Bring your arms above your head and lean your body to the right side while exhaling
      • Come back to the starting position while inhaling
      • Now lean your body to the left side while exhaling
      • Come back to the starting position while inhaling
      • Repeat this whole stretching workout 3 times to open all digestive channels.
      All these pressure points helps in opening up the digestive channel and it will benefit any digestive condition in an effective way. So the next time you feel bloated and full, don’t just reach out for an antacid, try out these easy and simple reflexology procedures and get long term relief from digestive problems.
