It is said that you can use acupressure points to improve your chances of conceiving. Those trained in acupressure say that you can also stimulate the central pole of the conception meridian, Yin Mound Spring, and the Ren channel.
What is Acupressure?
What is acupressure? This alternative medicine technique is a popular complement to acupuncture and reflexology. It works on the idea that life energy flows through "meridians" in the body. When pressure is applied to these points, the life energy flows through the corresponding area. Because of this, acupressure can be an effective alternative treatment. But how do you get the most benefit from acupressure?
To get started, you can find a qualified practitioner in your area. You can use your hands, or you can purchase acupressure tools such as rollers, mats, or sandals. You should always check their credentials and experience before making an appointment. Often, an acupressure practitioner will have additional skills and experience that will help you get the most benefit from their services. Acupuncture is not for everyone, and you should consult with a medical practitioner before beginning a session.
In general, there are 12 major acupressure points that correspond to different parts of the body. One of these points, known as the lung meridian, runs from the front of the shoulder, near the collarbone, down the inside of the wrist, and into the palm of the hand. Activating this meridian helps to restore the flow of Qi to different parts of the body. The technique can reduce symptoms of respiratory infections, as well as boost energy levels.
Although it has been used for thousands of years, acupressure has only recently received much attention in the biomedical field. While acupressure may not seem effective, it can help to alleviate muscular tension and relieve pain. It promotes capillarisation in the blood, which increases oxygen to the affected areas. Acupressure also helps to relieve muscle tightness and helps people relax. The technique can also relieve pain by increasing endorphin levels.
Stimulation of the Central Pole of the conception meridian
The acupuncture points for male fertility are located around the navel and under the pubic bone. These points promote blood flow to the reproductive organs, including the ovaries and sperm, and improve ovarian function. Stimulation of these points improves sperm count and motility, as well as sexual stamina. Treatments are often performed on the legs.
The Central Pole of the conception meridian is a central channel that is located in the lower abdomen, also known as the "Conception meridian." This meridian is important for both male and female fertility, and its name translates to "Sea of Qi." It helps build blood and regulate hormones, and it also supports sexual health. However, deep stimulation of this meridian during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle is not recommended.
Stimulation of the Ren channel
The ren channel is located in the lower abdomen at the midline. It is also known as the Conception channel, and it is essential to both male and female fertility. This point helps the body build blood, regulate hormones, and treats gynecological disorders. However, deep stimulation of the ren channel should be avoided during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle.
The ren channel has several specific points that can aid in male fertility. These acupuncture points are located on the abdomen at different locations and can help enhance sexual performance. The ren channel is particularly important for regulating menstruation and improving kidney function. It can also benefit the urinary bladder, which is the source of all feminine vaginal discharge. Nonetheless, acupuncture on this point should be avoided during pregnancy.
The sixth point in the ren channel is called the Sea of Qi. It is located 1.5 inches below the belly button. Place your palms over ren 6 and place your minds eye deep within the abdomen, about halfway between the sacrum and the belly button. This point is great for drawing scattered energy back to the center and focusing on what matters most. There are even acupuncture points for men that stimulate the Ren channel.
Stimulation of the Yin Mound Spring
The Acupressure points for male infertility can help men achieve sexual satisfaction, improve sperm production, and reduce pain. One of the most common points is the LV8 on the outer part of the tibia (between the first and second toe). The other point is SP6 on the inside of the leg, behind the medial condyle.
The Yin Mound Spring acupoint is on the spleen meridian. It serves several benefits for male fertility, including the relief of urinary and bowel problems and aching limbs. Another acupoint, the spleen 6, is useful for men who are infertile, and helps with impotence and spermatorrhea.
Acupressure for male fertility is a natural way to boost sperm production and reduce male infertility. Most practitioners will recommend a minimum of five treatments, although some practitioners may suggest additional sessions. Moxibustion is another form of acupuncture, which involves burning a cone of mugwort leaves near specific acupressure points. This process stimulates the acupressure points and improves the flow of energy throughout the body.
For female fertility, the Ren channel is located in the lower abdomen. The Ren channel is crucial for both male and female fertility. Its name translates to "Sea of Qi" and works to boost the body's qi, regulate hormone levels, and treat gynecological disorders. While the Ren channel can improve male fertility, it is best not to use deep stimulation of the Ren channel during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle.
