Neiguan is one of the most important points in traditional Chinese medicine due to its many different functions.
It opens the chest, and therefore, can be used for any chest problems causing pain, stuffiness, or tightness.
It helps to harmonize the stomach and subdue the upward rushing of energy manifesting as nausea or vomiting. It also helps with acid regurgitation, belching, dizziness, and hiccuping.
Neiguan has a powerful calming action on the mind and can be used to help with anxiety or irritability. It is excellent to promote restful sleep and help with pre-menstrual depression and moodiness. Not only does it help you digest food but emotions as well.
Interestingly, this point is effective in alleviating neck aches originating from the back of the head, especially in women.
Lastly, an acupuncturist might choose this point to help regulate irregular or painful menses.
Use Neiguan for pain management, stress, and digestion. Let me know if you've tried it and how it worked.
