Acupressure Digestive Aid Point Sp 16
For Relieving Indigestion & Hiccups
Below the edge of your rib cage is Sp 16, known as the “Abdominal Sorrow” point. It relieves many kinds of indigestion, such as abdominal cramps, acid stomach, gas pain, and ulcer pain. Sp 16 is also good for side stitches, rib pain, appetite imbalances, and hiccups.
To hold the point, curve your fingers and place then on the base of your rib cage. Abdominal Sorrow is located in line with your earlobes, a little closer to the center line than your nipples. Hold these points firmly for one or two minutes as you take long, deep breaths.
