Try Japanese Massage - Shiatsu for Heartburn

In Dubai, more and more people prefer Japanese Massage rather than a regular one. Shiatsu is a form of Japanese massage originated out of ancient Japanese hand therapy. The word itself comes from 2 Japanese words "shi" and "atsu" meaning finger pressure.

In Dubai Japanese Massage -Shiatsu is believed to work by massaging specific pressure points balancing the body's "qi' or the flow and balance of the body's energy. Shiatsu is believed to help heal many ailments including headaches, body aches, stress, insomnia and depression. There are also specific ways how to use shiatsu for heartburn.

Self-Performed Shiatsu

Familiarize yourself with the pressure points. There are pressure points located throughout your body. Each pressure point is associated with another spot on the body. The pressure points are often more sensitive and feel different to the touch than the surrounding areas.

Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and relax your body and mind. You will be more open to the effects of shiatsu if you are relaxed and focusing solely on balancing your qi.

Massage the pressure points. There are 4 main pressure points that when massaged correctly can help alleviate heartburn and indigestion.

Apply pressure to the point located in center of the joint connecting the front of your ankle to your foot. Hold the pressure for 5 seconds and repeat 3 times.

Drag your finger along your foot to another pressure point located on top of your foot where the bones of the second and third toe meet. Massage this area for 5 seconds and then move your finger forward to the web between the second and third toe, massage this area. Return to the first pressure point. Repeat this for a total of 3 times.

Take your thumb and apply pressure to the points located between the arch and the ball of your foot.

Gently locate and apply pressure to the point on the center of your breastbone, parallel to your nipples. Be aware that this area may be more sensitive than the other pressure points.
