First lets review Chi (pronounced chee and also spelled qi or ch’i). It is the life giving, vital energy that unites body, mind, and spirit. Simon G.Brown states in his book, Chi Energy Workbook: ”Imagine the flow of Chi as a radiating energy ‘field’ that runs through you and around you transporting thoughts, beliefs, and emotions, but mixing in with other dynamic influences around you as well.”
By applying acupressure to Conception Vessel 6 (CV6), this can help regulate the Chi functions and Chi circulation in your body. This is one of the most empowering acupressure points on the body. Location: Two finger widths below the navel (see above illustration). Technique: Using the middle finger, apply pressure perpendicularly and use gentle rotating movements with the fingertip. Benefits: 1. Develops vitality, strengthens immune system, urinary system, benefits kidneys, and sexual reproductive system; 2. Good for relieving stomachache, abdominal cramping, gas, irritable bowel syndrome, and menstrual cramp; 3. For constipation press CV6 two or three times a day to relieve or prevent constipation and irritable bowel (also include deep breathing); 4. Good for emotional stability, deepening spiritual awareness, sense of self, used for self-abuse, addictive behavior, and co-dependency issues. I generally do not include this many attributes for an acupressure point, but today it seemed appropriate to cover the majority.
