Acupressure Points for Constipation

Acupressure points for Constipation

Today I’m going to share some acupressure points for constipation. The ones that you can easily press on your hands and arms.

• Large Intestine 4 (LI 4)* – between the thumb and index finger (*Avoid if pregnant!)

If you are pregnant, here’s the [Pregnancy Safe] updated version.

• Large Intestine 11 (LI 11) – the end of the elbow crease

• Heart 7 (H 7) – in the wrist crease at the base between the ring finger and the pinky finger on the left hand. Gently stroke towards the finger for 10 times. Gradually increase the intensity and the number of strokes if you don’t see anything happening.

These acupressure points will help activate the peristalsis which is the wavelike movement in the intestine. I do feel something happening just by doing this. Hope this helps with your evacuation process.

Happy Massaging!
