Bloating is an uncomfortable condition where the abdomen becomes distended and swollen, It is often associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or premenstrual symptoms.

    From a Chinese medicine perspective, bloating can come from different internal causes. For example, it can indicate an emotional tension in the digestive system, this causes energy and blood to stagnate in the digestive tract, resulting in bloating, pain and digestive disturbance. Bloating can be strongly affected by stress.

    Acupressure and Chinese herbal medicine work effectively by clearing stagnation and strengthening the digestive process to resolve bloating.
