1. HE GU
Locate the highest spot of the muscle when the thumb and index fingers are closed together and massage it for four to five seconds. This pressure point is used to treat stress, headaches, toothaches, facial pain, and neck pain.
2. JIAN JING
3. TAI CHONG
This pressure point is used to treat stress, lower back pain, high blood pressure, menstrual cramps, limb pain, insomnia, and anxiety. Apply pressure on your foot about two finger widths above the place where the skin of your big toe and the next toe join.
Use your thumb to follow the mastoid (ear) bone down the groove back to where the neck muscles attach to the skull and apply pressure. This acupressure technique is recommended for stress, headache, migraine, eye blurriness, fatigue, low energy, and cold/flu symptoms.
5. ZU SAN LI
“In traditional Chinese literature and practice, this point is frequently stimulated for health promotion and longevity,” UCLA wrote. It’s also commonly used for gastrointestinal discomfort, nausea, vomiting, stress, and fatigue.
