ACUPRESSURE POINTS

 

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, there are over 800 vital energy points along the meridians that run from the head down to the heels, especially along either side of the spinal column. (The meridians connect the interior and exterior of the body). Every point has specific therapeutic effects on the related organ.

Some acupressure points lie underneath major muscle groups. While points near a bone structure usually lie in an indentation, muscular points lie within a muscular cord, band, or knot of tension. To stimulate the point, press directly on the cord or into the hollow.

Accupressure Point for headaches and migraines

Gates of Consciousness (GB 20)

Joining the Valley (Hoku) (LI 4)

Caution: This point is forbidden for pregnant women because its stimulation can cause premature contractions in the uterus.

Location: In the webbing between the thumb and index finger, at the highest spot of the muscle that protrudes when the thumb and index finger are brought close together.

Benefits: Relieves frontal headaches, toothaches, shoulder pain, and labor pain.

Three Mile Point (St 36)

Location: Four finger widths below the kneecap, one finger width to the outside of the shinbone. If you are on the correct spot, a muscle should flex as you move your foot up and down.

Accupressure Point for Sore Throat

The point on the outside of your thumb by the base of the nail is called LU 11 (Lung 11).  In Chinese, it is called Lesser Merchant.  This point is wonderful for nipping a cold in the bud.  At the first sign of a sore throat, use your other fingernail, a toothpick or a pencil eraser to apply pressure.

Acupressure Point For Anxiety

In Chinese, the point is called Inner Gate.  This point is located 2-3 finger-widths from the crease of the wrist and in the center on both wrists.  Pressing on this point brings down "stuck" energy around the diaphragm that results in the feeling of nervousness or anxiety. 

Acupressure Point For Asthma

LU 5 (lung 5) or in Chinese, Foot Marsh, is located on the inner arm at the crease of the elbow. The lung line or meridian (or channel) runs along the arm where the skin changes color and texture.  The point at your elbow crease in LU 5.
