Acupressure for Weight Control

Acupressure for Weight Control

Apply steady, penetrating finger pressure to each of the following points for 3 minutes.

1. Begin with 'Appetite Control' ear point. This appetite control point can help you avoid overeating. Begin your acupressure session stimulating this point. We suggest that you end your session by stimulating these point again.

Appetite control point is located in your ear. While looking in a mirror, place your fingers on your jaw, in front of your ears. Open and close your mouth a few times until you feel your jaw bone moving underneath your fingers. Put one finger where you feel the most movement of the jaw. Your finger should be right next to a little fleshy protrusion of the ear (not the ear lobe). Grab this part of the ear with your thumb and index finger and press with steady pressure.

2. Spleen 6 (Sp 6) has a strengthening effect on the digestive system.

This point is located on the inside portion of your leg, above the ankle bone. From the center of the ankle bone, slide up four finger widths. The point is just off the bone, toward the back of the leg. When you find it, press with your thumb or knuckle. Increase pressure until you are pressing quite firmly, hold about a minute, and gradually release.

Caution: Do not press this point if you are pregnant.

3. Stomach 36 (St 36) is the best point to nourish the chi and blood. It has a beneficial effect on the digestive system.

St 36 is located four finger widths below the lower border of the kneecap and one finger width off the shin bone to the outside. You've found the point correctly if you feel the muscle move under your fingers when you flex your foot up and down. Using moderate to firm pressure, hold for about one minute.

4. Spleen 9 (Sp 9) This point is a close neighbor of St 36. After pressing St 36, slide your finger across the shinbone until you are just off the shinbone on the inside side of the leg. Now slide your finger upwards along the shinbone towards the knee about an inch, until you fall into a natural depression. Sp 9 is in this depression, right below a rounded prominence in the top of the leg bone (tibia). This point is involved with the regulation of water metabolism in the body.

5. Stomach 40 (St 40) An important point for clearing excess damp and phlegm. It is also useful for eliminating excess weight.

St 40 is located

6. Large Intestine 11 (Li 11) is useful for clearing excess heat and damp from the body and to regulate intestinal activity.

Li 11 is located at the outer end of your elbow crease on the thumb side. Hold your arm in front of your chest, as if holding a cup in your hand. The point is at the outside end of the crease on your arm at the elbow joint. Another way to find it is to note the length of your thumb from the tip to the first joint, then move this distance up from the outside tip of the elbow bone toward the crease lines at the elbow joint. Hold your left hand close to your chest and use firm pressure with your right thumb; press for about a minute, then switch arms.

7. Liver 3 (Lv 3) prevents chii stagnation in the body and is the most important point for combating stress.

Lv 3 is situated on top of your foot in the webbing between your big toe and second toe. Start at the web margin of skin between the two toes, and slide your index finger up between the bones until you feel a depression about 1/2 inch up. Still using your index finger, press between the bones (in the direction of the root of the second toe). Start with light pressure, as this point can be sensitive, and increase as much as you can until you are using moderate to firm pressure. Press for about 1 minute.

The following two steps (8 and 9) are optional.

8. Four Gates relaxes the nervous system.

9. Neck and Shoulder Release will help to relax and calm you as you make the transition to a new dietary and exercise regime.

10. End your Acupressure session by again stimulating the appetite control point on both ears.

Acupressure for sex

Acupressure is an ancient healing art developed in India over 5,000 years ago that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities & for the healthy human body as they considered human body as the image of god where one could see his presence if it is in harmony. The word "Acu"is derived from latin language which means a very minute point.Hence these techniques stand for the therapeutic methods aimed to achieve cure by applying pressure at an acute point.Taking advantage of the modern development in scientific fields now the pressure is also applied with electric stimulation or by the electrodes.However the simplest & safest methods of stimilutaing the site is performed with fingers whihc press the particular points of the body to ease pains,tensions,fatigue & other symtoms of variuos diseases. In earlier times in ancient India this was also done with acupuncture as it was believed that peircing the ear lobes of young girls protects them from asthamatic disorders or piercing the nose was done to insure the fertility of the Female beings to for smooth flow of mensural cycles & good health.One of the important principle of Acupressure therapy is based upon purely a scientific basis : nerve ending of all small-big blood vessels & that of the nervous system lie at the base of the hand & feet.Hence the hands & feet have the control points of the entire human system. The whole human body is divided vertically & horizontally & they would correspond to the points in the hand & the palm which are know as reflex points. Acupressure reflex points are quite capable to find out the basic cause of the troubles or diseases in the body whre clinical tests might fail.Hense they are the mirror of the body ailments.these reflex points may differ from person to person slightly according the frame of body.Pressure is aplied by means of the physicans thumb, fingers or wooden objects on the reflex points moderately & whereever the patient feel the uncomfortable there the pressure point being defective may indicate health problems in the corresponding body parts.Human body is not only a unique machine but a store house o infinaite energy too.This energy is called pranicn energy or Bio-energy in the acu-parlance get dissipated everday owing to age & other fctors.This leakage accentuates process of aging & hence the body gets aflicted with a variety of diseases.But in acupressure therapy we control & plug this leakage by applying pressure on certain relfex point in the arm so taht this bio electricity is plugged to ensure healthy & longer life.

Advantages of using acupressure include relieving pain, balancing the body and maintaining good health. The healing touch of acupressure reduces tension, increases circulation, and enables the body to relax deeply. By relieving stress, acupressure strengthens resistance to disease and promotes wellness.Several kinds of acupressure are taught at the Institute all using the same ancient trigger points. Varying rhythms, pressures, and techniques create different styles of acupressure. Shiatsu, for instance, the most well-known style of acupressure, can be quite vigorous, with firm pressure applied to each point for only three to five seconds, while the Jin Shin style of acupressure gently holds each point for a minute or more.

Motion sickness and acupressure

Motion sickness


Motion sickness is a normal response to real, perceived, or even anticipated movement. People tend to get motion sickness on a moving boat, train, airplane, car, or amusement park rides. Although this condition is fairly common and often only a minor nuisance, it may be incapacitating for people who travel frequently -- although the more you travel, the more you get used to the motion.
Signs and Symptoms:

The most common signs and symptoms of motion sickness include:

* Nausea
* Paleness of the skin
* Cold sweats
* Vomiting
* Dizziness
* Headache
* Increased salivation
* Fatigue


Motion sickness occurs when the body, the inner ear, and the eyes send conflicting signals to the brain. This most often happens when a person is in a moving vehicle such as a car, boat, or airplane, but it may also happen on flight simulators or amusement park rides. From inside a ship's cabin, the inner ear may sense rolling motions that the eyes cannot see, and, conversely, the eyes may see movement on a "virtual reality" simulation ride that the body does not feel. Interestingly, once a person gets used to the movement and the motion stops, symptoms may return (although usually only briefly). Sometimes just anticipating movement can cause anxiety and symptoms of motion sickness. For example, a person who had previously had motion sickness might become nauseous on an airplane before take-off.


Some studies suggest that acupressure may help reduce symptoms of motion sickness in the same way as acupuncture, although the evidence is not clear. An acupressure practitioner works with the same points used in acupuncture, but stimulates these healing sites with finger pressure, rather than inserting fine needles.

The acupuncture point known as Pericardium 6, traditionally has been said to help relieve nausea. It is located on the inside of the wrist, about the length of 2 fingernails up the arm from the center of the wrist crease. Many travel stores sell wrist bands with built in buttons designed to apply acupressure to this point.

Using information from other sources ("cun")

Using information from other sources ("cun")

To be able to use information from other sources for locating points, you'll need to know what the "cun" is.

1 cun = 1 thumb widthThe "cun" is the standard unit of measurement for the body used in acupuncture. As everyone's body has different dimensions, it is defined according to the person whose body is to be treated.

1 cun = width of the thumb, in the middle, at the crease
3 cun = combined breadth of the 4 fingers, at the level of the pinky finger's first joint above the palm of the hand
12 cun = the distance from the elbow crease to the wrist crease.

Acupressure Wristbands Help Cancer Patients

Practitioners of Chinese medicine techniques have long used stimulation of points on the wrists through acupuncture or acupressure to relieve nausea. However, mainstream medical doctors have generally dismissed claims that acupressure wristbands could have any power to stop nausea. But a study by Rochester Medical Center researchers just published in the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management has found the Chinese approach really does work -- and it is not due to the placebo effect, either.

The significance of the study, the scientists noted in a statement to media, is that acupressure wristbands appear to be a safe, low-cost way to help cancer patients cut down on nausea when undergoing radiation, chemo and other treatments.

"We know the placebo effect exists, the problem is that we don't know how to measure it very well," said Joseph A. Roscoe, Ph.D., corresponding author and research associate professor at the James P. Wilmot Cancer Center at URMC, in the press release. "In this study we attempted to manipulate the information we gave to patients, to see if their expectations about nausea could be changed. As it turned out, our information to change people's expectations had no effect -- but we still found that the wristbands reduce nausea symptoms."

The study involved 88 people divided into three groups. All the participants were suffering from some degree of nausea after receiving at least two radiation treatments for various types of cancer. Dr. Roscoe explained that while chemotherapy is more often linked with producing nausea and vomiting, radiation to the intestinal tract can also cause those distressing symptoms.

A control group received no wristbands while a second group used wristbands and received information leading them to expect the treatment to work. A third group also received wristbands but only neutral information about wearing them, so they were not psychologically influenced to believe the wristbands would relieve their nausea. The results? All the patients who wore the acupressure wristbands experienced a 23.8 percent decrease in nausea compared to a 4.8 percent decrease in the control group.
