Massage therapy for Mentiere's Syndrome

  1. Study Illus.1 to familliarize yourself with the acupuncture points to be massaged.
  2. When you are not having an attack of Meniere's syndrome, you may massage the acupuncture points yourself in the order listed above. The " Key points" tongziliao , taiyang, shangguan and ermen should be massaged half as many times again as the other points. Use either the idex or middle finger to rub the "key points" and the yintang point, while using both fingers to rub the other points. Keep your eyes half shut and fists half clenched while extending the forefingers and /or middle fingers to rub the points slowly in a clockwise direction (Illus .2) Concentrate on the rubbing movements, which should be slow and just firm enough to produce the desired effect without causing discomfort. To conclude the exercise, use forefingers or middle fingers to stroke face lightly, starting from tongzijiao and proceeding to taiyang, shangguan and erman. Repeat this several times. When you open your eyes, you will feel refreshed and comfortable. 
  3. When suffering from Menier's syndrome, the same method may also be applied. In this case, first, massage the " key points", especially tongziliao and taiyang. If you are too ill to manage it yourself, someboyd else may do it for you, paying attention to rubbing the right points and applying the appropriate strength while rubbing.

To achieve better results , begin the massage at the first sign of illness. In more severe cases, take a sedative in the meantime.
