How To Relieve Menstrual Cramps With Acupressure

Don’t suffer through one more bout of period pain. Instead, try this trick from the ancient Chinese healing art acupressure.

Warning: If you feel pain when using acupressure, stop immediately. Pregnant women should not use acupressure.

Step 1: Find the sweet spot
Find the acupressure spot SP-6, called the Sanyinjiao point. Located four finger widths above your inner ankle bone, just behind the shinbone, it helps relax the cervix, according to Chinese medicine.

Tip: If you feel pain when you press down, you’re on the wrong spot.

Step 2: Press it with your thumb
Take your thumb and press on the point for six seconds, then release it for two seconds. Keep this up for five minutes.

Step 3: Switch feet
Switch to the other leg and repeat.

Step 4: Repeat
Repeat once more on each leg.

Tip: This acupressure move can also help new mothers deal with the cramps they experience for several days after giving birth.

Step 5: Feel good
Feel good knowing you have a powerful new weapon against menstrual cramps.

Note: In one study, 87 percent of participants who tried acupressure to relieve their menstrual cramps said they found it helpful.
