Okay, you are one of the millions of women who suffer from menstrual cramps and you want instant relief, don’t you?
Well , here it is, a natural home remedy, and you won’t believe how simple it is!
If you are not aware of Chinese medicine, then this might sound fairly strange but trust me, it works.
We have energy “highways” (meridians) along our bodies that transport “life force” (Chi). Along these meridians we have certain points (Acupuncture/pressure points) that act like traffic lights. When an imbalance occurs along one of the meridians the traffic lights turn red and the energy stops moving. This causes pain and dis-ease in your body.
We need to stimulate that point in order to make it green and allow the energy to flow freely again.
Now, there are certain points that correlate directly with our organs and bodily functions.
And there is a point for immediate period pain relief!
Now let’s see if I can help you find it…
This point is the 6th on the spleen meridian and therefore it is labelled Sp6. It is on both sides of your body but for now I’ll use your left leg as an example:
On women the point is normally a little closer to the shin bone. Feel around in that area and you should find a point that makes you want to yelp in pain.
Once you have found it exert pressure with a single fingertip for 10 seconds and then rub the sore spot for 10 seconds. Repeat 3-4 times whilst taking deep breaths.
You can use it as often as you like as a menstrual cramp remedy or as a precautionary measure.
This point increases uterine contractions and should be avoided during pregnancy.
