Press this point for low energy and issues related to reproductive health

The English name for Conception Vessel 6 is Sea of Qi, which gives you a good idea of what it’s for.

This point is helpful for pretty much anything related to depleted qi. There’s no direct English translation for qi, but energy is one way to think about it. The point is all about boosting qi/energy and also yang—the extroverted, lively, enthusiastic, active sides of ourselves.

Feeling lackluster, fatigued, physically or emotionally worn out, or just blah? Try Conception Vessel 6.

Conception Vessel 6 is also used for issues related to reproductive health, so things like impotence and seminal emission in men, or vaginal discharge and menstrual irregularities in women.

Some sources also indicate Conception Vessel 6 for both constipation and diarrhea, so it is worth a try if you suffer from symptoms categorized as IBS.

Conception Vessel 6 is on the midline of the body, roughly one-and-a-half inches below the navel. Apply firm pressure to the point for 1-2 minute increments while taking deep breaths into your abdomen.
