    Stomach 36

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

    Stomach 36

    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.

    Spleen 6

    also known as Spleen 6

    Spleen 6

    Recommendation from New York Acupuncture Clinic, to reduce menstrual cramps and symptoms of PMS: This is also called Spleen 6 (SP 6) is a very important point to reduce menstrual cramps, regulate the menstrual cycle, treat pain, and improve energy. This is because the point strongly moves the internal energy of chakra and blood. It also helps to produce internal energy of chakra. So stimulating this point will help improve digestion, energy, and reduce pain and can be used to prevent or treat acute cramps.
    SP 6 is located on the inside of your calf. The point is on the center line of your leg. Place your hand on the top of the inner ankle bone. The point is the same distance as the width of you 4 fingers put together.
    You can use these points to relieve cramps, but also you can rub both of these points (Spleen 6 & Stomach 36) daily to prevent menstrual cramps.
    Do not rub these points if you are pregnant.
