There are many people, both men and women who are struggling with excess fat, especially stubborn belly fat. This problem causes people to be insecure, but in many cases can also represent more serious health issue. There are a lot of reason why belly fat accumulates such as lack of sleep, age and maintaining a poor diet full of sugars , stress, and processed foods. The best way to find a solution is to identify the problem. However, in some cases, belly fat does not want to budge even with a healthy diet and exercise.
Stored fat in the body has several different purposes . It protects internal organs, protects the body from toxins , it provides a way of immediate energy in cases of hunger . We need to create ways for our body to burn fat as fuel. One of the solutions is exercise since it raises the body’s energy requirements and firms up the muscles underneath, which can result in fat loss. The important thing here is for you to have a healthy diet because if not, fat loss can occur slowly or not at all. Dr. Stephen Chang who practices both Western and Chinese medicine explains that performing a 2 minute massage technique can provide a form of internal exercise that cleanses and detoxifies in order to melt away fat.
The Chinese medicine massage technique is effective because it combines different types of exercises that improve the digestive system while maximizing the body’s ability to eliminate waste and detoxify . This technique may include some of the benefits such as :
- Detoxing the intestines
- Melting adipose tissue
- Improving digestive efficiency
- At the abdominal region improve circulation
- Improving conditions such as indigestion , nausea, vomiting
- Improve constipation
- Stimulating the organs in the abdominal region
Perform it twice a day, in order to get the best results possible from this method, before breakfast and before going to bed. To perform Chinese medicine abdominal massage:

In order to warm them up, rub your hands together until they feel hot.
Place one hand flat on your belly button.
