The SUN & MOON Stroke
Several years ago, I remember an incident where my mother was feeling discomfort in her stomach area. Not knowing the exact cause of the stomach ache, I immediately turn to infant massage strokes as a “fix all”. She laid down and I massage her stomach area using the Sun & Moon Stroke.
Whether it was food discomfort or gas discomfort, the strokes helped her tremendously. Typically strokes for the stomach area will help to relieve gas pains, helps with constipation, upset stomach and general comfort in that area.
Starting from LEFT TO RIGHT, horseshoe format, glide your hands from pelvic area in and towards chest area, under sternum, over belly button to the right side of stomach, down towards right pelvic area.
Upsided down C format. Stay in the stomach region of your body. Do this stroke for several times. Pressure gentle for younger children and more firm for adults.
