Acupressure for LIVER problems

Liver and Vision-enhancing Massage

1. Thumb-knead the depressions below the occipital bone (Gb20), at the bottom of the skull, 30 times.
2. Place the thumbs on the temples and use the middle knuckles of the index fingers to press the inner canthi of eyes, then scrape apart along the upper and lower orbits, 30 times.
3. Thumb-knead the inner sides of the eyebrows (Bl2), 30 times.
4. Pinch the nasal bridge closest to the inner canthi of eyes (Bl1), 30 times.
5. Thumb-knead the temples, 30 times.
6. First rub the hands together to get them warm, then put them over the closed eyes with the palms for 30 seconds; then slightly rub the eyeballs 10 times or more.
7. Nip and knead on the middle part of the palm web (Li4), between the thumb and index finger, 30 times.
8. Knead the sides of the ninth thoracic vertebra (Bl18), 30 times.
9. Knead the dorsum of the foot, in the depression between the big toe and the second toe (Lr3), 30 times on each foot.

This massage enhances liver function and helps improve vision. When kneading or pressing on particular points, there should be enough force to bring about numbness or soreness, while rubbing or wiping should create a feeling of warmth.
