Acupressure Point Massage

From the desk of Kristen Lutz, LCMT, MS...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Acupressure points are used to relieve sinus pressure quickly and easily. I often use these techniques during a session where the person is feeling the onset of a cold or sinus pressure.

A tenderness should be felt when you find each correct point.

* The starting point is in the middle of your eyebrow. Squeeze with your thumbs and first finger, holding the most sensitive points on both brows for 10 to 20 seconds with a pressure just deep enough not to cause discomfort.

* The 2nd points are directly under the pupil on the eye socket bones. Hold both points for 10 to 20 seconds with similar pressure.

* The third point is in the middle of the nose at the brow line or the third eye point. Hold it for 10 to 20 seconds with moderate pressure.

Repeat this throughout your day and within minutes you can have some {long sigggghhh} relief!
