Acupressure Points for Menstrual Cramps – Massage Monday #217

Hi everyone. This is Yasuko and it’s time
for Massage Monday. This week I’m going to show you three acupressure
points to help alleviate the menstrual cramps for those monthly sufferers out there like
me. I know it’s not very fun and ibuprophen used to be my best friend during my period
but since I’ve been trying to become more holistic and stay away from those drugs and
find natural remedies, these acupressure points have been helping me a lot. The first two points are under the belly button.
The first one is two finger widths under the belly button. Press this point with middle
finger supported by index and ring finger. Press this point as you breathe deeply up
to one minute. The second point is four finger widths under
the belly button. Again press this point with middle finger supported by the index finger
and the ring finger as you breathe deeply for one minute. For me I find this point the
most soothing and effective. The third one is on the leg. Find the inner
ankle bone. It’s the four finger widths up the ankle bone. When you follow the line straight
up from the ankle bone there is a depression. That’s the point. Press this point for up
to one minute as you breathe deeply. And repeat on the other side. I hope this is helpful. Thanks for watching.
I’ll see you back next week. Make it a great week and please don’t forget to subscribe.


  1. Thank you so much! May i know when are we suppose to practise this exactly? Before the menstrual pain starts! Would appreciate a reply πŸ™‚

  2. (I'm on my period)
    I'm really embarrassed to say it but I am..
    And this works !!
    This works perfectly fine for period cramps too!!!😊😊

    Thank you so much !!

  3. Thank you! It really works, esp. the point no.2. A question: how often, when the cramps are really bad, is allowed to press this point? I press it every 45-60min for 1 minute, until the cramps calm …

  4. Thank you for being so thorough, you are a lovely woman. I suffer horrendous menstrual pains and it feels like a nightmare when that time if month approaches…I never know what to expect.

  5. i guess people were so distracted by the pain and the following sudden relief that they missed the like button and pressed the dislike instead haha

  6. Works like magic and very easy to do πŸ™‚
    The point 4 fingers under my belly button worked great!
    Thanks! πŸ˜€

  7. ladies!
    I am on my period right now
    trust me for severe cramps
    place your palm above the symphsis pubis and press that area and massage in circular motion but you should turn either left or right lateral not in supine position .
    trust me this will work .for best result turn semi-lateral(right) position .
