How can acupuncture help?
ST36 (Zu San Li) – Located below the kneecap on the Stomach meridian, this pressure point when released can greatly strengthen one’s energy and boost the immune system. This is necessary for healing digestive disorders like diarrhea, gas, bloating, vomiting and nausea.
RN-12 (Zhong Wan) – Located in the “middle cavity” along the Ren meridian; specifically, where the energy of the stomach gathers and collects water and food to convert it into nutrients.
Intensified and prolonged emotions can damage the function of thisthe stomach leading to all symptoms presented above. By releasing this pressure point, you’re improving this important stage in the digestive system that dictates how efficiently food nutrients are absorbed.
ST-25 (TianShu) – Located where the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract meet and interact along the Stomach meridian. Blockages from build-up of excretions can occur here when the muscles are not moving properly due to lack of blood flow in the abdominal area. Applying acupressure at this point can help to alleviate constipation, diarrhea, intestinal disorders, and menstrual-related issues.
