The ancient art of acupressure can relieve aches and pains, remove energy blockages and restore the body’s balance
Acupressure brings quick relief in many situations where stress and tension start to show in our bodies. This technique is based on the theory that good health depends on the free movement of energy around the body, which all of my treatments focus on. Here are three you can try yourself:
Relieve a Headache: working on this acupressure point in the middle of the cranium can be a really effective way to calm an overactive mind and ease the tension in your head. The point sits at the top of your head (between your ears). Find this point and then with your fingertip massage it gently for a few minutes
Soothe Tired Eyes: Using your thumb and the knuckle of your forefinger, gently pinch along the boney ridge of your upper eye. Finish by working the point in the middle of the eyebrow.
Relieve Insomnia: Lay one hand facing palm up, starting from the outer side (thumb end) and working across to the far side (little finger), gently pinch-pull across the crease of your wrist. Finish by applying gentle pressure to the point between your eyebrows (third eye).
