Facial Beauty Point for the Acupressure Face Lift

in Acupressure Points,Eyes,Nose & Throat,Pain Relief

presenting the Acupressure techniques I practice daily for wellness, I feel inspired to show you the Acupressure “Facial Beauty Point” so you’ll look gorgeous. This point underneath your cheekbone, tones the facial muscles and increases blood and energy circulation through your face.  This is one major reason why the Acupressure Face Lift works.

This facial point (St 3) also has tremendous health benefits.  Located at the bottom of the cheekbone (maxilla) directly down from the pupil, this master facial acupressure point relieves a stuffy nose, nasal congestion, and the pressure or pain associated with sinus problems.  I have also used this point successfully on a client for facial paralysis (which I’d like to do a separate blog about someday).

Toothache & Eye Pain or Irritation: I use this point for tooth pain, eye ache, eye irritation, and swelling around your eyes. I’ll write more about using this point for relieving these common ailments, so stay tuned.

Benefits of St 3: The Facial Beauty Point improves facial muscle tone and increases circulation. These facial points are gateways for the Qi life force and blood to flow freely.

Acupressure facial points relieve facial congestion as well as relax facial muscles and connective tissue, which attaches the skin to the muscles.  After years of pulling and stretching the skin, the connective tissue is weakened, causing the skin to slip away from the muscles.  The results are wrinkles and sagging skin.

Learn to Combine Facial Exercises with more Points:  If you want to learn self-acupressure to manage wrinkles, premature aging, sagging skin, and facial blemishes, checkout my Acu-Face Lift booklet. The effectiveness of these facial techniques, which integrates acupressure points, deep breathing, and facial exercises, results from combining these complementary self-treatment practices.

E-Booklet: This facial Acupressure booklet is now available as an E-booklet, so you can get all 20 photos plus 5 line drawings of 40 facial acupressure points and 10 facial exercises into your computer, without paying any shipping. Go for greater health and beauty!

I have not worked with this condition. I imagine you’d get some minor relief and the acupressure would certainly help you manage your stress and make you feel better and more stable. Try this point (CV 17) and hand position to see if it gives you a little more stability.

My husband, 58, is recently diagnosed with cysts in both kidneys. One cyst is slightly big. this may be genetic and has no known cure. At the worst, these cysts can grow and kidney failure is imminent.

Could you please let me know if there are accupressure points that could help reduce the cysts.

Thank you for a quick response.

The acupressure points in the lower back, B 23 and B 47 may be helpful, but not a cure. I encourage you to also ask a couple of acupuncturists.

Hello,
I was watching your acupressure video and thought perhaps you could mention there is a depression in the cheek bone. If you let your finger or, my preference, the thumbs rest in the depression, it is very easy to massage the point effectively. I sometimes suggest people simply rest their elbows on their table or desk, sit up straight and drop their shoulders, usually the cheek bones then at the right height to rest into the thumb pads….my 2 cents!

Good question. I am not sure, but I think I have same points and suggestions. Use CV 17, Sp 6 and P 6. If you do not know these point numbers, you can get my acupressure chart. Avoid and reduce salt and meat by all means. Even if these suggestions help a little, I also hope you learn to accept your facial features – they are a sign of strength. Explore and feel good about the strengths within you, as you become a woman.

Hi Michael, your acu-face lift ebooklet looks really interesting. Will definitely order it – any good for a 70 years old (young) lady? One serious question through, I searched through your acupressure book but could not find points for gout. My young son is going to be 40 next year, and he started having gout at the age of 24. He is visiting me just now, and I’d be most grateful if he could show me a couple of points that would help to relieve his pain. Is there a cure for gout? I look forward to your guidance. Jorva

michael August 5, 2011 at 2:19 am

I have not worked directly with Gout. I think the Acu-Face Lift ebooklet would benefit you, but please do not expect to look like Joan Rivers, who had too many surgical facelifts. I’d look even healthier and a bit younger.

Hi Michael,

Is this particular point in the video also good for tinnitus? if not which one would you recommend.

Reply

michael August 5, 2011 at 2:04 am

I do not think this is the best point for tinnitus. There are points in front of the ears and distal points in the lower back that I think would work better.

You mentioned about a fascial paralysis that you were going to do later. I don’t remember what it is that she has, her left side of face and includes part of the corner of her mouth droops. Not sure if she has any twitching.

I was wondering if you could send me the points/locations that I could give her?

By the way, I just ordered your 5 books and the large acupressure meridian chart to go along with it. Should receive it in a few days. Thanks.

Reply

michael August 4, 2011 at 8:34 pm

The procedure for the fascial paralysis is very simple –
it just takes a month or two. I mainly used this same point (St 3) which I presented in this blog.

I hope you find my books resourceful and empowering.

Acupressure can relieve varicose veins and reduce them to some degree,
if done daily over a year; its not instant and not a 100% solution but can
be very helpful. I’ll add this to my list for my e-news blog, so stay tuned.

There are a number of potent points. I think you’ll get some results with this article on acupressure points which balance the blood pressure. Like many good things in life, it takes consistent work over several months. I have found that there often is an emotional wound connected to blood pressure imbalances.

sir,

I am 64 yrs old and vegetarian. For the last 25 yrs I am suffering from hi-tension. The problem is some line of a song is going on repeats in mind. Further, I can visualise the person but the name of this person does not reflect immediately. Till the name is known/ remember, I will be in tension thus unable to sit, stand, sleep, eat etc. It is like mental. I am taking Homeopathic medicine and helped me to a reasonable level. However, still it is not cured fully. Different people advised different treatments but I am following only homeopathic medicine.

Is there any cure in ” acupressure treatment “. if yes, please let me know step by step procedure. If possible please reply to my mail ID:

Thanks and regards,

K.S.MURTY

For Mental Stress & Tension: I have a formula of Acupressure points and specific instructions which I think may help you – if you sincerely practice these instructions daily. Get the Acupressure Stress Relief DVD and practice it at least once a day, twice a day would be better. Immediately afterwards: hold GB 14 the Mental Clearing Points for a minute while breathing slowing and deeply through your nose. Then practice holding your Third Eye Points with your palms together, your head relaxed forward for healing the mental stress you’ve accumulated over the years. End by holding the Sea of Tranquillity Point (CV 17) to balance all your energies. Please try this and share it with friend who have mental or emotional stresses – its good for prevention and relieve of all kinds of problems that trauma and stress produce. I promise to put this formula together as a self-healing program, so stay tuned.

What you give yourself and others fully in your life, you’ll gain cumulatively in the long run. Focusing on what you regret will lead to disappointment; while focusing on what you know is true, right and good for your body – will add to your well being.

Reply

michael August 23, 2011 at 12:38 pm

In traditional Chinese Medicine, blackness under the eyes is related to the Kidneys. See your doctor or an acupuncturist for more care. The acupressure points near the Kidneys in the area of the lower back can be very helpful. I will write a blog article and illustrate these acupressure points in the lower back soon in celebration of launching my Back Care book as an e-book very soon. Stay tuned!

Since about May this year, I woke up one day with pronounced puffy eyes and deaknrss under my eyes. And it does not go away. I’m really self conscious about it. I look sleep deprived, or sick, or like I’ve been crying. It sucks so much. I’m only 22 years old and have tried pretty much every home remedy. I will try this! I hate this puffy dark bags under my eyes.

Trouble Speaking: There are several approaches that a skilled Acupressurist may use for trouble speaking or dysphonia. In traditional Chinese medicine the voice and speaking is governed by the heart meridian. Thus it’s common that emotional healing can be an important part of opening the voice. The neck acupressure points in all the points in the area called the Windows of the Sky can be very helpful. I hope you will go to http://www.acupressure.com/blog/?p=1130 to help yourself and others with trouble speaking.

inguinal Hernia Acupressure points: I have used gentle pressure on Sp 12 and Sp 13, using the palm of my hand to apply the pressure gradually. Please start with a light touch on these Acupressure points. Take slow, deep breaths as you hold these points sensitively. Increase the pressure ever so slowly and gradually. After a few weeks, you may begin to discover the benefits. Continue for a couple more months to strengthen the health of the area.

Cheyo June 4, 2012 at 1:27 pm

: I’m not a doctor but imho if you have capral tunnel beware how much pressure you apply to the acupoints near the wrist (and in your case near the base of the thumb since its radial) as it may aggravate your condition. Acupressure probably works on the muscular and nervous system to relieve the pain receptors, but any mechanical problems and deficits would require individualised care.

Reply

michael June 6, 2012 at 10:53 am

In Acupressure and Shiatsu, there are specific techniques for applying pressure which provides a good deal of pressure but does not injure the wrist or aggravate the carpal tunnel.

For this chronic problem, the relief is partial and recovery will usually be slow. Use acupressure points St 36, Li 20, and GV 26. You will find photos and illustrations of these acupressure points in my book entitled Acupressure’s Potent Points, especially in the chapter on the Sinuses toward the end of the book.
