Ren 17 is a powerful acupuncture point for helping to relieve acid regurgitation. In Traditional Chinese Medicine acid reflux is viewed as 'rebellious stomach qi' because the normal direction of stomach energy should be downward. By massaging this acu point and applying pressure (acupressure), it will help stimulate the point which has the function of descending stomach qi.

What You'll Need

  • Just yourself

What You'll Do

  • 1. Locate Ren 17, on the chest directly between the nipples on the sternum
  • 2. Massage the point, use enough pressure that it will feel a little tender but not so much that it is uncomfortable or painful
