Here it is – my debut on www.youtube.com! My sister convinced me that I could make an instructional video on acupressure, so we gave it a whirl. Considering we had several takes due to one or both of us bursting out laughing, it didn’t come out too bad, if I do say so myself.
I chose to demonstrate this Master Tung acupuncture point because I have used it myself and I know it is effective. As I say in the video, the translated name of the point is “Intestine Gate”. Intestine Gate has a powerful effect on calming the intestinal tract. Acupressure can be used in an acute situation. Acupuncture to this point along with others based on the Chinese medical differential diagnosis can be used to treat chronic diarrhea.
The point is located on the small intestine meridian. Approximately three inches proximal (closer to the elbow) on the same meridian, is another point called Liver Gate. Acupuncture to both of these points can help enteritis due to hepatitis.
