Acupressure Points for Relieving Stomachaches, Indigestion, and Heartburn.
Working on these points can help you get better
quicker. You do not have to use all of these
points. Using just one or two of them whenever
you have a free hand can be effective.
Points (A) -- Center of Power
Caution: Do not hold this
point deeply if you have a chronic or life-threatening
illness such as heart disease, cancer, or high
blood pressure. It is best not to hold this
point for more than two minutes and to use it
only on a fairly empty stomach.
Location: On the midline of the body, one-half
way between the base of the breastbone and the
belly button. Benefits: Relieves stomach pains,
abdominal spasms, indigestion, heartburn, constipation,
and emotional stress such as worry and frustration
that often causes digestive problems.
Points (B) -- Sea of Energy
Location: Two finger widths below the navel.
Benefits: Relieves abdominal pain, lower back
pain, constipation, gas, and digestive problems.
Points (C) -- Three Mile Point
Location: Four finger widths below the kneecap,
one finger width to the outside of the shinbone.
If you are on the correct spot, a muscle should
flex as you move your foot up and down. Benefits:
Relieves stomachaches, poor digestion, stomach
disorders, and fatigue.
Points (D) & Points (E) -- Sea of Vitality
Caution: Do not press
on disintegrating discs or fractured or broken
bones. If you have a weak back, a few minutes
of stationary, light touching instead of pressure
can be very healing.
Location: Location: In the lower back two (Point
E) and four (Point D) finger widths from the
spine at waist level. Benefits: Relieves indigestion,
abdominal pain, and stomachaches.
Points (F) -- Grandfather Grandson
Location: On the arch, one thumb width from
the ball of the foot toward the heel. Benefits:
Relieves abdominal cramps, stomachaches, indigestion,
and diarrhea. Also good for balancing a person
who is inclined toward anxiety or hypochondria.
Points (G) -- Inner Gate
Location: In the middle of the inner wrist,
two-and-one-half finger widths below the wrist
crease. Benefits: Relieves stomachaches, indigestion,
nausea, and anxiety.
