The Chinese medicine developed acupressure therapy over 5,000 years ago to help improve blood flow, enhance energy, and release tension. The acupressure uses precise finger placement and pressure over specific points along the body.
Activating these points either with pressure or needles, follow specific channels known as meridians, which are same channels used in acupuncture.
The point on the face is located between the nose and the upper lip. Massage it two times a day for 5 minutes to help you control anxiety and hunger.
Massaging this point on the arm will help you release excess heat from the body which can increase the function of your intestines. Massage this point 2-3 times a day for one minute.
This point on the leg is known as Zu San Li and it is frequently used in acupressure. Massaging the leg can improve digestion and prevent inflammatory processes in the body. It is located under the knee cap.
Use your palm to cover the knee, the point is between the end of the small and ring finger in form of lower recess between the bones. Massage this point frequently in the evening to help you lose a pound each week. Massage each leg 9 times, for 5 minutes each.
