Leg Tree Miles – Stomach 36 is a great point for stress also used for gastrointestinal discomfort, nausea and vomiting and fatigue. As the Earth point of the Stomach Channel, it is literally the most grounding point of the body. It emphasizes the descending function of the stomach and roots Qi firmly in place.
