Acupressure & Moxibustion for Pregnancy Anaemia

The acupressure point, ST36 (Zusanli), is one of the 11 heavenly acupuncture points. It is located on both legs, four finger widths down from the bottom of your kneecap, along the outer boundary of your shin bone, you will feel a small indent/depression there.

Press on either or both points for up to 3-5 minutes at a time. You can do this several times a day if you wish. This point helps to increase your Qi, strengthen the Stomach and Spleen, improve your digestion and increase Blood production. Well done!

Moxibustion (moxa), also known as mugwort, is an ancient herb which facilitates iron absorption. You can do moxibustion over ST36 for 5 minutes a day for ten days and your iron & energy levels should increase. Come in for a consultation and acupuncture treatment, and I will show you which special & safe techniques to use.
