Step 2: Find the points on both lower legs and hands

Treatment for
 Menstrual Cramps


SP 6
SP 6 is the primary acupressure point for treating Menstrual Cramps. SP 6 is located on the inside of the lower leg. It is one hand width above the ankle bone and in the muscle just behind the tibia bone. It can be effective when pressed on one leg, more effective is pressed on both legs, and even more effective if combined with R2N and Gyno as shown in Step 3 below.

Gyno is located on the right hand on
 the inside of the thumb between the
 first and second knuckle.          
R2N (Return to Nest) is located on the outside edge of the ring finger of the left hand between the first and second knuckle.  These points are pressed with the edges of your finger nails.

Step 3: Scroll down and press the points in all 4 areas for relief
Locate and press the most sensitive spot in each area.  Press SP 6 deep enough to feel an achy sensation.  If you need to press harder use your thumb or (if your have long finger nails) try the blunt end of an ink pen.  With R2N and Gyno it is best to use your finger nails to press the points.

1. Press SP 6 on the right leg for about a minute while taking 3 or 4 DEEP, SLOW breaths. Right Ankle
2. Press R2N on the left hand with your finger nail repeatedly for about a minute while taking 3 or 4 DEEP, SLOW breaths.  Press hard enough to leave a series of small dents in the skin. Left Hand

3. Press SP 6 on the left lower leg for about a minute while taking 3 or 4 DEEP, SLOW breaths. Left Lower Leg
4. Press Gyno on the right hand with your finger nail repeatedly for about a minute while taking 3 or 4 DEEP, SLOW breaths.  Press hard enough to leave a series of small dents in the skin. Right Hand

Repeat by pressing all of the points in sequence several times, then read the suggestions below.

Is this supposed to work?

No relief?   Try these suggestions: 

1. Check to be certain that you started by selecting the image that best matches the location of pain on your body.  If you can find an image that is a better match try pressing those points.  If your pain moves to a new location after you press the first set of points go back to the previous page, select the image that best matches the new pain location, and try using the new points.

2. Check the general area around the point location by gently pressing to find the most sensitive spot.  Pressing on the most sensitive spot in the area will usually give you the best results.
3. Follow the proper techniques for pressing the points. Press hard enough to feel a connection and then breathe in and out slowly three times while pressing for at least 15 to 30 seconds.  If you do not get any results you should try pressing hard enough that it is quite intense but, please don’t injure yourself.  Breathe into the pain and slowly move the area of the body that you are trying to treat. Take a two minute break and try again.

4. Try points in the same areas but, on the opposite hands.

5. Select another pain location image that is located close to the pain location on your body. Try using these related point selections to see if you get better results
6. Contact an acupuncturist and make an appointment.  If you often have severe menstrual cramps with your period an individualized diagnosis and professional treatments may be necessary to resolve your condition.
