Treating Menopause With Shiatsu

 

The origins of the practice of shiatsu derive from the full oriental medical system which looks at the human body as a network or series of meridians, and these networks allow the positive energy or vital life force (or chi) to flow through it. According to shiatsu practitioners, an individual becomes sick due to the flow of chi or energy becoming sluggish or disrupted in one way or another.

This however can be easily remedied. The energy imbalance can be corrected by way of applying pressure to particular points on the body that correspond to a given meridian.

This is all good news for women going through menopause, as the practice of shiatsu is excellent to try, to help relieve your symptoms. When the woman going thru menopause experiences any of these symptoms which include; ringing in the ears, pain in the shoulder and/or dizziness it is the small intestine meridian that must have pressure applied to it because of its connection to the work of the ovaries.

Apply pressure to the stomach and spleen meridians if you find yourself suffering from any type of nervous, or stomach disorders or if you have a tendency to over eat because of anxiety and frustration. The meridians for the heart, bladder and kidneys will need to have pressure applied to them if a menopause patient has any type of nervous disorder, or heart palpitations. If you suffer from constant fatigue, or if you have headaches, then you need to look to the triple heater meridian. If you struggle with your weight, or if you are obese, and/or have a hormonal imbalance, then you should look at the gall bladder meridian for the relief you need.

Do not consume a great deal of liquids when you eat meals and in particular this means ice in drinks, other cold drinks and alcoholic beverages. Try your best to avoid drinking from Styrofoam cups, as Styrofoam is very bad for the environment and avoid eating off of plastic plates and using plastic utensils. Do not consume foods that have been prepared with hydrogenated oil, examples being margarine and any other type of butter or margarine substitute. Avoid any of the artificial sugar substitutes such as aspartame, which is actually more harmful to the body than sugar, and eat as small a quantity as possible of white sugar that is processed. Never consume unbleached white flour or fruits and vegetables that are not ripe or have been waxed. arthritis pain relief

Be aware that for the practice of shiatsu to work for treating the symptoms of menopause, first an accurate diagnosis of the symptoms must be done by a qualified shiatsu practitioner.

If you suffer from anxiety and a great deal of tension on a regular basis then look to the shiatsu technique described below to bring relief.

First find the middle point that exists between the eyebrows, this point is to be found directly above where the bridge of the nose is found.

Apply a circular type of massage technique to this area for thirty seconds, being sure to breathe as deeply as you can for maximum effect. Do this once, and then repeat the process. To get as much relief as possible from this technique, shut your eyes and take time to pay close attention to both your breathing, and your heartbeat. You can do this technique as many times as you feel it is necessary. Choose the type of massage that works best for you whether it be smooth, pulsating or a stroking type of massage. Always use what works the best for you. Not everyone will respond the same way, so it is important to experiment to find the best technique for you.
