You have acupressure points for gas on your stomach, hands and feet.
Science shows that pressing on certain acupressure points may release muscular tension…
…and help with the passing of gas.
Where do you push on the stomach for gas?
The acupressure point for gas on your stomach is 0.5 inch below your belly button.
If you press it and it feels hard, your muscle is tense.
This may suggest:
- Gas in abdomen region
Gently press down and massage the area in a clockwise direction until it feel a little softer.

If the pain is unbearable, please use less pressure.
The science behind acupressure points for gas on the hand is not conclusive.
In 2014, a study conducted through a Trusted Source of British physiotherapists found that reflexology ( massage used to release hand pain for acupressure) was useful at dealing with pain in the respective organs.
If your hands are not showing a result, we can move to the next acupressure point for gas: your feet.
What pressure point relieves gas?
As depicted in the picture, the pain on your feet can suggest:
