CV 6 is the Sea of Energy Point

One of the most empowering acupressure points on the body is CV 6, known as the Sea of Energy. You can do great healing on yourself and others – if you know the point location of CV 6, its functions, how to tap the point’s healing energy, and know the applications in this article.   CV 6 strengthens the body’s internal condition especially the colon, immune system, sexual urinary reproductive system, and heightens your ability to heal yourself.

Point Location: CV 6 is located two finger widths below the center of your belly button. The finger pressure should always be applied gradually. Go even slower and more carefully into the abdomen for the elderly and sick. During pregnancy be very gentle, and use the palm of your hand instead of fingertips.

Point Function: CV 6 revives the body’s healing processes; develops vitality; strengthens the immune system, urinary system, sexual reproductive system, and benefits the kidneys.  

Good for Relieving: stomachache, abdominal cramping, constipation, gas, irritable bowel syndrome, menstrual cramps, insomnia, urinary incontinence, impotence, infertility, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, digestive headaches, body aches, anal or rectal pains, and general weaknesses.

For Constipation: Press CV 6 two or three times a day to relieve and prevent constipation and irritable bowel. Pressing this point activates and strengthens the large intestine, encourages peristalsis, and relaxes the abdomen. Along with this point, I’ve used Chi Gong breathing exercises effectively for constipation and irritable bowel since the colon’s partner is the lungs in traditional Chinese health care.

Emotional & Spiritual Benefits: CV 6 is good for developing emotional stability and for deepening spiritual awareness; strengthens your sense of self; used for self-abuse, addictive behavior, and codependency issues.

Sexuality: The Sea of Qi (CV 6) is good for all kinds of sexual problems for men and women. The abdominal muscles often tighten during lovemaking, which can block the flow of sexual energy. Pressing CV 6 and acupressure points around it, can relieve the abdominal tension, strengthen the urinary and reproductive systems, and increase sexual intimacy and pleasure.

CV 6 is a longevity point, which can improve your overall health and enable you to live longer. Two to three minutes of firm to deep pressure on this point while breathing slowly and deeply into your belly, strengthens all of your internal organs, and develops your healing energy reserves. For this reason, I have made a covenant, a vow to myself, that I will try to press this point and breathe deeply into it every night before going to sleep. I believe that working on this point in bed with super slow, deep breathing, opens the flow of healing energy while I’m asleep, and thus provides extraordinary healing benefits.

Any worries or regrets in your life will fade away and you’ll get more focused and feel more vital, if you continue to practice breathing deeply into this life giving acupressure point. Share this with your friends and enjoy life; there’s nothing more important!

I urge you to also use the acupressure points called the “inner gates” P 6 which I describe in detail here for relieving wrist pain and carpal tunnel pain. This point is remarkable for stomach aches and nausea. If it continues, please see a doctor for medical advice.

Please use CV 6; its a major point for colitis. Apply the pressure carefully, very gradually since its ulcerated and get medical attention from a doctor. Be sure to eliminate sugar, reduce fruit, and eat a cup of well cooked whole grain brown rice daily for the loose bowels.

Can’t stress my agreement with your “eliminate sugar” comment enough! Also eliminate high fructose corn syrup, and the fake sugars (sucralose and aspartame).

There are points that are suppose to be good for Epilepsy. Since I have not yet experienced this specific application directly, I am not drawn to write about it. However, I did have a head injury, over 25 years ago, in which my neurologist wanted to give me mediations the rest of my life to prevent the seizures that can result after the trauma of such a head injury. I used a combination of many acupressure points and made myself practice mediation twice a day, which seemed to rebalance my brain and nervous system.

Reply

michael March 22, 2011 at 10:06 am

There are many points on the Gal Bladder meridian, many of which can relieve gall stone pain. However, I suggest you see a medical doctor for treatment. Acupressure for gall stones can offer some relief, but please did not expect this to be a cure for your Gall Bladder condition, unless you work with Naturopath or another type holistic medical doctor. I hope you continue to use the CV 6 point, since you’re getting excellent results.

PS- off the record, is there any point for penis enhancement.

Reply

michael April 3, 2011 at 2:40 am

To answer your question, think of the way acupressure works – by releasing blocked energy – it can flow into the male and female sex reproductive organs and enhance many aspects of the genitals, and their function. If you want to learn more specifics, I spent several years of research, writing Acupressure for Lovers, which contains over 400 illustrations of the points and what to do.

Dear Michael,
Could you please send me more of your informative articles regarding acupressure. The beauty of your material was that it elaborately pointed out the various benefits connected with that point. Acupressure is something very new to me, yet it came in my life very unexpectedly. I have had severe problems with my stomach for around 15 plus years. Constipation, gas, pain, churning, stomach sometimes loose sometimes normal are a few to name. Then I quit everything in a sheer state of disappointment. No remedy, no treatment for more than a year. One night one thing very miraculous happened. I had a flash across my mind that acupressure would remove all problems. I at once started reading on the net. I came across a few points such as the point in between the index finger and the thumb. I applied the pressure on both the places on my hands. And when I woke up next morning I found myself almost completely relieved. It’s been well over two weeks and I think I am 90 percent cured! Thanks to the Almighty. And the people who love humanity.

michael May 9, 2011 at 1:19 am

There is a power point in your lower abdominal area, below your naval, which is effective for constipation, gas, churning, and many digestive imbalances. I wrote about this CV 6 point here – just following the description and directions. By the way, it works for not only for relieving these problems, but also for preventing these digestive and elimenatory problems – by gradually strengthening the internal organs of your body. I try to do this point just before I go to sleep, every night.

There are acupressure points on the ankles and at the base of the rib cage for the acidity problem, however changing your diet to reduce acid forming foods is essential. This CV 6 point is also excellent, because it enhances elimination which can be a cause of the acidity.

michael December 1, 2011 at 7:06 am

I think CV 6 can help you in many ways and prevent many health problems associated with your condition.

To find CV 6, go down 3 finger widths (two inches) below your belly button (the naval) in the center of your lower belly. Its best to be lying on your back. Apply the pressure gradually. Hold for 2 or 3 minutes with a deep pressure that hurts good. It helps to breathe slowly and deeply while you press and deeply relax for several minutes afterward while breathing deeply. Do this 3 to 5 times daily.

Blessings and healing wishes to you.

Reply

Good questions. CV 6 is three finger widths directly below the naval.
Apply the pressure gradually, increase the the pressure gradually.
Maintain the firm pressure as you breath in and out.
As you inhale, breath deeply into the finger pressure.

Hi Micheal,

I would like to know the following:
1. What is the right time during the course of the day to apply pressure on CV6 more specifically time (In Hours) since last meal?
2. For best results when is the right time(Morning/Evening) to perform Chi Gong Breathing Exercises?
3. I know its stupid to ask but on a average how soon do you think this method will start showing results?

I too like many others in this page have been suffering from digestion problem wherein the food stays in the stomach for hours after meal and I do not feel hungry which is coupled with gas and acidity and I have been having this problem since my childhood and it got escalated after I had jaundice 1 year ago. Have been surviving on medications which do not offer lasting relief
Frankly just be reading your blog I think I have enough confidence to cure myself from my IBS syndrome. Words fall short to describe the excellent work you have been doing and I have decided to buy your book “Acupressure’s Potent Points” to further augment my acupressure skills.
Hope I didn’t ask too many questions.

michael July 24, 2012 at 1:13 pm

I appreciated your questions. Chi Gung and Acupressure, especially abdominal points, are best to use when you are not digesting food – this should make sense. My favorite time to press CV 6 is when I go to bed at night. However, you can use this point and other points, any time. Acupressure’s Potent Points is going to give you so much guidance and practical answers – its exciting that you have decided to get this book because it has over 400 illustrations for over 40 common common compliants. Use the chapters on Constipation and Chronic Fatigue in the book.

In addition to using CV 6 daily and sometimes several times during the day or night, I highly recommend that you get the Chi Gong Deep Breathing DVD called Less Stress or sometimes its called Stress Less. Practicing these breathing exercises a couple times a day will give your body a huge boost to healing your condition along with using these acupressure points.

There are acupressure points at the tip of the tail bone, sacrum, tip of the pubic bone and perineum that can relieve some of your discomfort.

Please apply the pressure gradually to CV 6 between your belly button and pubic bone. If you are off the exact location of this point, it will not be harmful as long as you apply the pressure gradually and you do not have a life threatening condition. By using common sense, acupressure is natural and safe.

It could be block somewhere in my mind which makes me very tight.. I dont know…
Would you able to suggest me accupressure points and how many times I need to do daily>
Many Thanks

Reply

michael January 20, 2013 at 4:43 am

Just this point could help you and there are others. I suggest that you lay down on back comfortably with your eyes closed, and use all your fingers to gradually press into CV 6 as you take slow deep breaths into your belly. Hold the point for 3 to 5 minutes. Notice what thoughts and feelings surface. Often the tightening associated with vaginismus can a result from trauma or sexual abuse. For trauma or sexual healing, use my book entitled Acupressure for Emotional Healing.

For more Acupressure points and techniques for healing yourself and to do with your husband, use my Acupressure for Lovers book I encourage you to share your experience with using Acupressure. Please feel free to ask me questions. If that’s too personal, you might want to find a woman therapist, counsellor or bodywork therapist that you trust.

To promote elimination when on the toilet, I suggest using your longest fingertips of both hands on CV 6 in the lower abdomen, between your belly button and public bone. Lean forward to relax your belly and slowly go into your lower abdomen at CV 6 with firm deep pressure, as you breathe deeply.

There are a variety of Acu-Yoga postures which stimulate CV 6. These postures ideally should be practiced on a rather empty stomach. Bow Pose is an advanced, powerful posture, but requires warming up the spine beforehand. I suggest pit pose, which stimulates CV 6 in a very powerful way. For illustrations of the points and yoga postures, here’s how to get the Acu-Yoga book.

Hi,
My father is suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease – Stage 5. Doctors have recommended the dialysis. he is about to start the same. His kidney problem is 11 years long, but condition has aggravated recently.
What would you suggest for reviving the kidneys ( if accupressure believe in so)? You have mentioned CV6, but would it be safe, considering very poor state of his kidneys (less than 15% working)?
Kindly suggest.

For your father’s condition, please use western medicine. At this stage, acupressure is not the treatment choice. Please follow his doctor’s orders.

Thank you for the info, I intend to put it to use, as I have a client who has recently undergone surgery for prostate cancer. Since the removal of his prostate, he is yet been able to produce an erection while laying supine, but can produce a slight erection while standing. Also is still having trouble controlling bladder while in deep sleep. would you happen to have any other suggestions?

Yes, I suggest using B23 and B47 in the lower back with one hand, while your other hand goes gradually into CV6. Also the K points could be helpful. If you want to learn more or if he wants to help himself, see the last chapters of my book, Acupressure for Lovers which illustrates and guide you to these points and more.

So many points can help you, but its important to first go see a medical doctor – please. Acupressure for this condition should not be used to substitute for medical treatment. Here are 8 acupressure points that can be helpful, but not a cure. See a doctor. I suggest that you get the download for these wellness and immune boosting points:

Hi Michael! I am a new fan (2 weeks and counting) of yours…going through a lot of medical conditions now (fatigue, headache, muscle tension in neck/shoulder, nausea and sciatica); presently I’m awaiting blood test results from my PCP. I expect your teachings will lead me to wellness. I am so happy to have found CV6. Whenever I am looking for an acupressure point on the web, I always look first for your blog. I am planning to order your book, Acupressure Potent Points and share with my family, too. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom with all of us – I know we all are eternally grateful to you – I sure am!!!

Wellness and Chi to you and yours!

I wonder if this point can be destroyed by operations: i had three (2 Cesareans+umbilical hernia operation – some 35 years) and have a quite big scarf of about 20cm on that part of the CV channel.
Thank you for your great site

Cesareans can put scar issue and block up this vital point, but not destroy it.
All the more reason to use this acupressure point 2 time daily and benefit.

A food specialist told me that to prevent the gas producing effect of beans, you should simply throw away the water the beans are cooking in, after about 20 minutes of boiling time, and then put fresh water on the bean and bring the pot back to boil, reduce the heat and continue cooking the beans until they are soft ready to eat.
