Acupressure to relieve acid reflux
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.
