Rubbing four parts often is better than taking tonics

When we are tired, we often rub our faces or ears. After rubbing, we always feel much refreshed. Zhuang Ping, deputy chief physician of the rehabilitation and health care department of Xiyuan Hospital, Chinese Academy of traditional Chinese medicine, told this reporter: “the” rubbing “mentioned here belongs to the category of rubbing, pushing and rubbing in traditional Chinese medicine massage, that is, exerting a little pressure on the body surface with hands to carry out one-way, round-trip or circular movements. Regular rubbing can relax the tendons and collaterals, activate blood circulation and remove blood stasis, and prevent diseases. It is a very good “chicken soup” for the body. Recently, the Hong Kong Ta Kung Pao online published an article that the elderly can live longer by rubbing the following parts.

rubbing face

Rubbing your face when you are tired not only makes your face comfortable, but also makes your eyes bright and makes you feel refreshed. Rubbing the face can not only stretch the facial nerves and muscles, but also prevent facial paralysis, vision loss, colds, etc.

When rubbing your face, the strength should be slightly heavier, and the speed should be 1 time per second. Rub your face 3-5 times a day, not less than 5 minutes each time, until your face feels hot. People with dry skin should not rub their faces too hard and at too fast a speed to avoid hurting their skin. Zhuang Ping points out that if you rub your face too hard, it is easy to cause your blood pressure to rise. You should stop there.

rubbing ears

Ear acupoints are densely distributed, reaching all parts of the human body. When the human body is sick, it is usually displayed on the ear. Traditional Chinese medicine says that the kidney opens the orifices in the ears, and regular rubbing of the auricles can strengthen the kidney, strengthen the waist, nourish the body and prolong life.

Zhuang Ping told the life times: “when rubbing the ears, you should rub the outer ear wheel (the cartilage part rolled from the outermost side of the ear to the inner side), which can promote the filling of capillaries and the improvement of peripheral circulation. When rubbing the ears, you should also pay attention not to use too much force. In addition, the elderly with serious heart disease, ear ulceration, and some tumor patients should avoid rubbing the ears.

rubbing waist eyes

The waist eye is located at the top four fingers of the human pelvis. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the waist and eyes are the “belt pulse” and the kidney. The kidney likes to warm and hates cold. Regular massage of the waist and eyes can warm the kidney yang and smooth the blood. Rubbing the waist and eyes with the palm can not only dredge the pulse and strengthen the waist, but also strengthen the kidney and prolong life.

When massaging, rub your hands together to get hot. Press the waist tightly, stop for a moment, and then rub down hard. Do it 50-100 times each time, one time in the morning and one time in the evening. After rubbing, make a light fist with both hands, and massage the waist eye with the eye or back of the fist for about 5 minutes each time.

rubbing the foot center

There are many reflex areas on the foot center of the human body. Rubbing the foot center often can play a role in tonifying the brain, benefiting the kidney, benefiting intelligence and nerves, activating blood circulation and unblocking collaterals. It can also prevent and treat forgetfulness, insomnia, indigestion, anorexia, abdominal distension, constipation, heart, liver, gallbladder and other organ diseases.

There are two kinds of foot rubbing: dry rubbing and wet rubbing. The method is to hold the front of the back of the left foot with the left hand and rub it up and down 100 times with the right hand along the foot center to make the foot center warm; Use your left hand to rub the center of your right foot. The rubbing force should be comfortable. When wet rubbing, put your feet in a warm water basin, soak them until they turn red, and then rub them according to the dry rubbing method.
