– If you suffer from anxiety, manipulating the pressure point in between your eyebrows can help put you at ease. This pressure point is known as “The Hall of Impression.”
– If you’re feeling nauseous and anxious, massaging this spot can do wonders. Here’s how to find it: Put out one of your arms in front of you, palm facing up. Place 3 fingers over your wrist — the point just below your last finger is the pressure point you’ll want to stimulate.
– When you’re feeling anxious or stressed, a very common symptom is insomnia. On the sole of your foot, find the depression that forms when you curl your toes. Once you find it, apply firm pressure, and use massaging motions for 2 to 3 minutes.
– When you try this move, you’ll understand why they call it the “Heavenly Gate.” Manipulating this pressure point on your upper ear can seriously help relieve stress and can even help with insomnia.
– When you’re stressed out, physical symptoms like fatigue and an upset stomach can rear their ugly heads. To get some relief from this, manipulating the pressure point known as Zu San Li can really help you.
– Do you ever wish you could shut your mind off from the buzzing thoughts that plague your brain when it’s time to drift off? These thoughts can turn into full-blown anxiety. To ease this, you can try manipulating the pressure point known as the “Wind Pool.”
– Heart palpitations are a symptom of panic attacks, and they can be unsettling. To locate this pressure point, bend one of your arms at 90º. With your index finger, touch the lower edge of the inside of the elbow crease closest to your body.
– If you’re feeling particularly anxious or stressed, try pressing the spot between your big and second toe on top of where the tendons meet. In the practice of acupressure, this sweet spot is known as the Tai Chong (or LV3).
