Fix Your Menstrual Cramps With Acupuncture!
There are just some things that Acupuncture is great at treating. Gynecological issues like painful menstrual cramps is one of them!
Many women have mild to agonizing period pain monthly. At times it may feel unbearable.
From an early age, girls are prescribed birth control to help control menstruation by Western doctors. In their view, if you suppress menstruation you stop the pain.
Makes sense, but this only works for some. Others still experience excruciating menstrual cramps.
Acupuncture has a remarkable effect at restoring menstrual harmony. Through Chinese medicine, the root of why you are having menstrual difficulties is found and fixed!
Here are 2 Quick Menstrual Cramp Points you can use right now to help ease menstrual pain:
Try pressing this point for a few seconds up to a minute when feeling period pain.
Spleen 6, or Sanyinjiao, is a wonderful point for menses regulation. You find it just above the inside ankle bone. Cross your legs, with your inside ankle up (medial malleolus), and lay your hand down placing your pinky next to it. The width of four fingers (3 cun) up from the medial malleolus is where this magical point resides. See picture above.
The next point lies just in the palm of your hand!
Imagine your entire body is represented on your palm. The fingertip of your middle finger is your head, with your arms and legs being the next fingers. Now take the heel of your palm, find the middle of that. Around this area is a great place to press when having menstrual cramps. See picture above.
There are so many ways we can treat our bodies. This simple, yet powerful technique of pressing the points (acupressure) above is a great home remedy. Part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is treating points with pressure and needles for menstrual cramps which is incredibly fast acting and highly effective.
