Massage Fix For Stomach Ills



Malnutrition and ingestion problems in children may soon become a thing of the past.
This is because the Hong Kong Baptist University's School of Chinese Medicine has come up with a "tui na" or massage therapy that appears to be 98.5 percent effective.
 
According to researchers, a weak spleen and stomach means oral drugs have a low effect on patients. So the tui na therapy for children is applied via meridians and acupuncture points to regulate or condition the function of organs, especially the lung, spleen and kidney.
 
The disorder is common among children and arises mainly from improper diet, congenital factors and other diseases that have damaged the function of the stomach and intestines. Symptoms of emaciation, anorexia, abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea and pale or yellow skin tone may occur and it may lead to other chronic diseases.
 
The clinical observation was conducted on 66 chronic functional indigestion patients aged 2 to 13 and who attended medical consultations from March 2014 to March 2016. Of these, 45 recovered while 20 had symptoms alleviated. Only one patient showed no signs of improvement.
 
SCM clinical lecturer and study head Sun Suming said: "This gentle therapy is painless and will not put an extra burden on the patient's digestive system. It is an efficient and effective treatment which is easily accepted by children."
 
The supplementary use of Chinese herbal medicine, cupping or other treatments before and after the tui na therapy can also strengthen the treatment's effectiveness. Sun said among the 58 patients who suffered from chronic coughing, asthma or involuntary urination, an improvement in their digestion and immune system was observed after receiving the therapy.
