This week I’m going to show you three acupressure points to help alleviate the menstrual cramps for those monthly sufferers out there like me. I know it’s not very fun and ibuprophen used to be my best friend during my period but since I’ve been trying to become more holistic and stay away from those drugs and find natural remedies, these acupressure points have been helping me a lot.
The first two points are under the belly button. The first one is two finger widths under the belly button. Press this point with middle finger supported by index and ring finger. Press this point as you breathe deeply up to one minute.
The second point is four finger widths under the belly button. Again press this point with middle finger supported by the index finger and the ring finger as you breathe deeply for one minute. For me I find this point the most soothing and effective.
The third one is on the leg. Find the inner ankle bone. It’s the four finger widths up the ankle bone. When you follow the line straight up from the ankle bone there is a depression. That’s the point. Press this point for up to one minute as you breathe deeply. And repeat on the other side.
