Acupressure for Emotional Health & Beauty

Acupressure is an ancient healing technique using the fingers (vs. needles) to stimulate acupuncture points. It is used for general health preservation and the self-treatment of disease. The 7 key acupressure points explained below effectively stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities.

Acupressure is best known for its ability to alleviate physical pain. For issues such as headaches and back pain, acupressure is extremely effective. For issues of emotional pain, the positive effects of acupressure is only starting to get the attention it deserves.

In addition to its applications for pain, acupressure points have been used as a beauty treatment for thousands of years. An acupressure beauty treatment enhances muscle tone, relieves stress, and increases circulation.

There are 7 key acupressure points every woman should stimulate daily for overall emotional health and long lasting beauty;

    1. Zu San Li - Relieves worry, pensiveness, and over-thinking which leads to deep wrinkles on the forehead, digestive pain, headaches, and fatigue. The Zu San Li point is located 3 inches below the knee cap, and one finger breadth lateral to the shin bone.

    2. Tai Chong - Relieves anger, irritability, and impatience which leads to permanent furrows between the eyebrows, acne, PMS, and irregular menstrual cycles. The Tai Chong point is located between the big toe and the second toe, approx. 1 inch inward from the webbing on the top of the foot.

    3. San Yin Jiao - Relieves all fear, anger, and worry related emotions. These emotions ultimately rob their possessor of leading a fulfilling life. They may also cause urinary problems, high blood pressure, and thyroid conditions, just to name a few. The San Yin Jiao point is located 3 inches above the inner ankle bone, just behind the shin bone.

    4. Yang Ling Quan - Relieves timidity and aids in making decisions. The classic ‘hunch-back’ may be a result of not taking charge of your life. This acupressure point should always be used if physical pain is present. The Yang Ling Quan point is located just below the knee cap, between the head of the fibula bone (on the outside of the leg) and the shin bone.

    5. Nei Guan - Relieves anxiety, shallow breathing, and stress which leads to palpitations, circulatory problems, and neck tension. The Nei Guan point is located on the inside of the wrist, 2 inches from the crease of the wrist (toward the elbow) and between the 2 major tendons that can be felt in the middle of the arm.

    6. Lie Que - Relieves sadness, grief, and depression. The vibrant magnetic aspect of a woman suffers most from these emotional issues. Poor posture, respiratory problems, and various skin conditions may be prevented with the use of this point. The Lie Que point is located on the thumb side of the wrist, beside the head of the radial bone (just below the base of the thumb) approx 1 inch from the crease of the wrist (toward the elbow).

    7. He Gu - This point can be used for any emotional stress. It is very important for the health of the facial muscles and skin. It is also effective in relieving menstrual pain and problems with the large bowel. The He Gu point is located in the muscle between the thumb and the pointer finger.

When administering acupressure to these points, use enough pressure that there is slight discomfort but no pain. Apply this pressure for 20-30 seconds to each point, 2 times per day. Is should be noted that the above points are on both sides of the body.

actually the feeling is not really one of discomfort but more of an almost electrical "shock". It is an energy "jolt" --circle around it and spiral into the center of the electric "feel" of it. Explore that area---that spot. Feel your way to it.    More later----omhome
