Overindulged on Easter Eggs this weekend?  Feeling a little blocked and sluggish after a chocolate-fest?  Here’s a powerful point that might help!

Located along the stomach meridian, Zusanli is believed to influence the organs of the upper abdomen, the parasympathetic nervous system (which controls digestion), and your overall energy. 

Zusanli helps with:

Digestive system diseases: stomach pain, abdominal distension, hiccups, vomiting, indigestion, diarrhea, constipation.

This point can also help to reduce blood sugar; you can read more on this HERE.

Where to find Zusanli

This point is located below the kneecap, roughly 3 inches below and 1 inch away from the center of the body.


How to massage this point:

  1. Place two fingers on one of the zusanli points.
  2. Apply gentle but firm pressure to the point with both fingers.
  3. Use a circular motion to massage the point for 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Repeat on the other side.
