Stomach 25 - Celestial Pivot


The first time I learned about this acupuncture point, it was referred to me as the pivot between the earth and heavens. It is the center of our body from where we transition from the connection to the soil below us and the skies above us. That is why it is called Celestial Pivot.

Stomach 25 is about two finger breadths from the belly button. This point supports the earth and transforms damp. Dampness is a sign that the Spleen channel is not properly functioning.

This point is used for abdominal pain & distention, constipation, borborygmus, diarrhea, dysentery, and edema. Energetically this point can be used for those who feel as if their lower and upper bodies feel disconnected.

To apply acupressure, gently press on this point for 1 - 3 minutes to help alleviate the above issues.
