Health Issues/Symptoms Connections

"Malabsorption" Issue / Symptom Connections

Below you will find various relationships to, and potential clinical treatment approaches for malabsorption.

It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine, treatment for "malabsorption" is rarely focused on the symptoms exclusively. Alternatively, a practitioner is looking at the factors that led to the development of "malabsorption" - i.e. the "cause(s)".

For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.

Some acupuncture points are considered "empirically" related to a specific condition or diagnostic pattern. While this would rarely, if ever, dictate the entire composition of a treatment, the following point should be considered, possibly even more so within the context of acupressure:

  • View EX Huatuojiaji at T11 (Sides of Spine at T11)

        .5 cun lateral to the lower border of the spinous processes of T11

        T11 innervates the small intestine and is used for a range of digestive and assimilation issues and with related factors edema in the abdomen or lower part of the body. Used ¬†extensively within the Tam Healing System and Tong Ren Therapy.‚Ķ

The Tom Tam/Tong Ren Therapy system can be applied via energy healing/medical qi gong methods as well as an acupuncture component. The acupuncture aspect is generally utilized in combination with more standard TCM diagnostic approaches.

For the specific points/areas that would generally be utilized in someone experiencing "malabsorption", please read "Tam Healing and Tong Ren Therapy for Malabsoption ".
