Below the edge of your rib cage (at the junction of the 9th rib cartilage to the 8th rib) in line with your earlobe is Sp 16, known as the “Abdominal Sorrow Point” which relieves indigestion, ulcers, balances acidity in the stomach, appetite imbalances, abdominal cramps, rib pain, and hiccups. Curve your fingers and place then on the base of your rib cage directly below your nipple. Hold these points firmly for one or two minutes as you take long, deep breaths. Here is 5 minutes of close-up instruction on how to find and use Sp 16, an extremely valuable point to know and use.
Napoleon Bonaparte, the French military leader, is famous for holding this point to relieve his abdominal gastric pain. Thank goodness he knew this Acupressure point to relieve his ulcer, balance his outrageous 3rd chakra which governs ego, self-image, and his lust for power during the French Revolution. Imagine Napoleon’s expression, using this point to relieve his indigestion, burping, and bout with hiccups.
