This point is located in the area of the Sacred Chakra (Hara), home of the primary energy. Tradition considers this place the center of the human body. It is therefore closely related to the true Self. As its name suggests, CV6 is a great source of energy. It is on the acupressure points of choice to fight fatigue.
Given its location, it also helps for menstrual pain, digestive disorders and lumbar problems.


Conception Vessel 6 (CV6), Sea of Energy, Hara.

Where is this point?

Between the navel and the pubic bone, on the middle line, 2 finger widths under the navel.

How to work this point?

Position your forefinger, middle finger and ring finger of one hand along the line below the navel, and press until you reach a small firm spot.
A softer stimulation would be to position the palm of your hand over the area, without pressing. The palm emits energy and transmits it to the point.
You can practice while standing up, sitting (back straight and feet flat on the floor) or lying down.

  1. Is there a point for bladder pain. I have had this for 4 years and can get no relief. . Thank you, for your input for acupressure….

    1. Hi Sharon, I suppose you have had medical screenings about this condition ? If not, that is the first step. Then (or in parallel), you should consult an acupuncture (or acupressure) professional for a live full evaluation and session. You should not auto-medicate for bladder pain, even with acupressure. Besides, there is no “one pont”, because the reasons for that pain are diverse. I hope you get well soon.

    1. Hi, the points that help to quit smoking are located on the ears, and they require preciseness. I recommend using an ear magnet, or visiting an acupunctor.
