Per viewer’s request this week I’m going to share acupressure points for high blood pressure.
|降圧溝 – The first one is the upper groove in the back of the ear. Rub this area up and down 30 times. You can do it one side at a time or both sides together. You can use your thumb in the back or index finger in the back. Repeat it three times a day.
|－The next ones are in the middle of each fingertips so there are ten of them. Press the fingertips of both hands against each other. Hold it for ten seconds. Rest for few seconds. Again press for ten seconds. And rest for few seconds. Repeat this ten times.
|百会 (GV 20) –Next draw the lines up from the top of the ears and it’s where the lines meet on the top of the head. This is called GV 20 or Governing Vessel 20. You should feel a distinct sensation when you press this point.
|風池 (GB 20)－Find the depression in the center at the base of the skull. Move to the side and go over the big ropy muscle which is trapezius and there is a depression. These are called GB 20 or Gall Bladder 20. Press or circle to stimulate these points using hooked thumbs, fingertips, overlapped fingertips, or with free thumbs by weaving fingers.
Press these points with your fingertips as you breathe deeply for one minute.
These points will help you lower the blood pressure temporarily. This is not a substitute to your medical treatment. It is something you can incorporate in your healthier lifestyle.
