Acupressure originated in China as a technique to release energy blockages throughout the body. Today, it is widely used to treat a variety of ailments ranging from food allergies and stress to diabetes and digestive issues. You can even use acupressure treatment to relieve sex dysfunction.
Familiarize yourself with the acupressure points on the body that are related to sexual issues. These points are located on the outside of the wrists (in a straight line below the little fingers), above the groin, above the knees, on the shins (slightly above the ankles), on the front of the ankles and along the spine in the lower back region. It will help to keep a map of the body's acupressure points nearby for you to reference.
Apply gentle, even pressure to one of these acupressure points. Use the pads of your fingers and thumbs. You can also use a blunt object to apply pressure.
Incorporate acupressure into foreplay with your partner. Oftentimes, sex dysfunction is linked to tension and stress. Acupressure will help release tension to better prepare you for intercourse.
Intermix acupressure with other forms of foreplay such as kissing, rubbing and caressing.
Apply pressure to the points for at least 10 seconds, beginning with light pressure and gently increasing to more intense pressure. When working on pressure points that occur on both sides of the body, apply pressure to both points simultaneously. For example, press on the both wrist pressure points at the same time.
Use acupressure to help reach orgasm. The best pressure point to stimulate for this is the one slightly above the groin. This is located three to four inches below the navel. As it's a sensitive area, you may only need to apply very light pressure here.
