Acupressure 101: Relieve Mental & Physical Stress Using These Acupoints

The next time you're feeling tired and stressed out, pull down on your earlobes firmly for a few seconds, or apply firm pressure to the indentation on your nose bridge between your eyebrows using your thumb for several minutes while breathing deeply. Sometimes a little acupressure is all you need to give an extra lift to your mental and physical health.

While there are countless acupressure points (acupoints) from head to toe with very specific points corresponding to different areas of your body and health, you can get started on very basic acupressure 101 to relieve your headache, let go of some stress, give yourself an energy boost, or help with your lower back pain.

Take note that certain acupressure points are not advisable for pregnant women and you should always breathe fully while applying these acupressure points.

Outright quackery. if you really think that there's some mystical pathway in your body (that no one has ever seen) moving some magical chi energy thing around (that no one can detect), and that these mysterious, invisible pathways can get "clogged up" causing you pain/stress ... and on top of all that pushing some specific point completely unrelated to the area of the body you have pain will have any impact, you don't need accupressure, you need to have your head examined.

Interesting, but not sure I'm buying it.
