Buttock Point

Point Location

This point is in a direct horizontal line from the top of the buttock crease. If you press along this line there will be a tender point approximately two thirds of the distance between the buttock crease and the hipbone.

Acupressure Technique

When the support person places their hands on the woman's hips they can push their thumbs into this point, helping the woman to move in rotating movements during contractions.

This point can be used as the women enters transition, either with direct pressure or combined with strong downward massage from Ciliao BL-32 out to this point.
