There are the 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.

It’s important to drink plenty of warm water after the massage, to help clear away toxic substances in our body.
