How To Soothe Pain Caused By Menstrual Cramps, Insomnia, Urological And Pelvic Disorders

In this article we show you how you can ease the pain caused by all of the aforementioned problems. The pressure point that can help you is located on your legs. Namely, our legs play an important role when it comes to our overall health, but many people don’t know this. Hence, they don’t pay enough attention to them.

Here we show you a step-by-step instruction on how to find your San Yin Jiao (SP6) pressure point and what to do with it, in order to get maximum effects.

To locate this point, you need to sit down and turn your leg to the side, so that you can see its inner part, or the calf muscle. Then, place your hand above the ankle. Using the width of your 4 fingers, you’ll locate the exact location of this pressure point.

Press the pressure point firmly with your thumb for 4 to 5 seconds, and then release. When applying the pressure, it’s normal to feel a slight pain. But, if the pain is unbearable, you should stop immediately. Repeat the process several times, alternatively on both of your legs. For best results, practice this technique every night, before going to bed. Applying pressure on this point will instantly relieve the pain caused by menstrual cramps. Also, this point is connected to the kidneys, spleen and liver.

San Yin Jiao (SP6) is very useful for the woman’s overall health.

Precaution: If you’re pregnant, don’t press this point, as you may cause labor contractions.
