Stomach 36

thumb holding method and other 4 fingers press varmam point at interior leg

Recommendation from New York Acupuncture Clinic, to reduce menstrual cramps and symptoms of PMS: This is also called Stomach 36 (ST 36), is one of the most important and commonly used acupuncture points. If you are trying to reduce menstrual cramps you should first gently examine ST 36 area. If the muscles there are tight, then pressing deeply and strongly with your thumb will help reduce the cramping and pain. Be careful because this area can be sensitive and pressing very hard can cause bruising. If the muscle there are weak, then gently rubbing is better. This point can also be used for general health, improve digestion, stomachaches, and reduce fatigue.

To locate ST 36 find the bump on your bone about one inch below the knee. This bump is called the tibial tuberosity. ST 36 is level with the bottom of the tibial tuberosity, one thumb width towards the outside of the leg.

You can use these points to relieve cramps, but also you can rub both of these points (Stomach 36 & Spleen 6) daily to prevent menstrual cramps.
Do not rub these points if you are pregnant.
