Massage Techniques to Get a Flatter Stomach
If you’ve noticed some extra inches on your waist, you definitely know how easily they can ruin your self-esteem. But it’s not just your beauty that suffers — abdominal fat can actually increase your risk for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and some types of cancer. That’s why you should deal with it as soon as possible.
Stimulate blood circulation in your belly.
Rub your hands together to generate heat on the surface of your fingers and palms.
When your hands are warm enough, start rubbing them in clockwise and counterclockwise rotations around your belly button.
Perform this massage for 2-3 minutes.
Get rid of bloating
Find the point that is located 4 fingers above your navel.
Massage this point for 2-3 minutes clockwise and for the same amount of time counterclockwise.
Try Chinese massage
Place one hand on your belly button.
Applying firm pressure, use your 2 fingers to rub around your belly button in small circles. Gradually widen the circles, moving away from your navel to the sides.
Perform the massage for 2 minutes.
Use pressure points.
You can find the Ren 6, Ren 4, and Ren 3 points about 1, 2, and 3 inches below your belly button.
The Ki 16 points are located on either side of your belly button, about 0.5 inches away from it.
The Zigong points can be found on both sides of your tummy 3 inches below your belly button and 2 inches to either side.
Place 2 fingers on the point and gently massage the area. Then, press and hold it for a couple of minutes. Repeat with each point.
