Acupressure For Painful Periods

Ah, that monthly visitor… sometimes a welcome guest, sometimes a ruthless tyrant. If you’re among the many who experience painful periods, know that you’re not alone. But you don’t have to suffer in silence! Today, we’re exploring an ancient, empowering tool for menstrual relief: acupressure.

So, how does this work?

Acupressure, like acupuncture, works on the principle of stimulating pressure points throughout the body that connect to energy channels (meridians). Applying gentle, sustained pressure to these points can:


  • Promote blood flow: It’s like loosening traffic jams in your internal highways, promoting circulation and easing congestion that contributes to crampy discomfort

  • Release endorphins: These natural painkillers play a vital role in reducing discomfort and boosting mood, bringing back your period sunshine

  • Relieve tension: Stress and anxiety can exacerbate menstrual woes. Acupressure helps soothe the nervous system, promoting relaxation and calming hormonal fluctuations


You can access this power right at home!

No needles or appointments necessary.I

Try Ear Seeds!

These tiny wonders adhere to specific pressure points on your ear, offering long-lasting relief throughout your cycle. We recommend placing them on the Shen Men point, located in the depression at the top of your earlobe, to promote relaxation and combat anxiety. Ready to try?
