During my 40 years teaching Acupressure, many of my students had remarkable results using acupressure for a few minutes before getting out of bed. I’m excited to teach you how to use these two acupressure points to start your day in a better way. You will feel happier, mentally clearer, with less stress. I consider this the Crown of Acupressure; it works by balancing the pituitary and pineal glands.
Simply hold these two acupressure points, as shown, for 2 to 3 minutes with light touch while breathing deeply with your eyes closed. Try it first thing, before getting out of bed to set your intentions for the day. See if it clears your mind and puts you in alignment during the day. If you do this every morning, you can treat each day as a new beginning. You can break bad habits by holding these acupressure points, and reset your intentions daily. You can also use these points at other times of the day, whenever you need greater clarity.
Holding these acupressure points works by balancing your energy system. When your energy is balanced, your body can function properly. Healing energy work can be that simple, yet profound.
Holding GV 20, at the top of your head, with GV 24.5, between your eyebrows called the Third Eye Point before going to sleep and after waking-up is healing for fibromyalgia, insomnia, headaches, vertigo and dizziness. Here’s more info on how use the Third Eye Point in other powerful ways.
Fine Tuning: I suggest you end a massage, chiropractic treatment, or yoga class by holding these two acupressure points (GV 20 and GV 24.5) lightly while breathing deeply to balance all the energies released the session.
Other Useful, Practical Applications: Try using these Acupressure points:
• After you meditate; it will seal the healing energy and the great benefits of meditation.
• After you make love, to channel the energy released for healing each other.
• To boost your morale and aspiration, which is something everyone can use.
• After exercising or yoga, to enable the energy released to balance.
These acupressure points clear your mind, enabling you to think more clearly and positively. Please also remember that the way you treat yourself and what you think, makes a huge difference. In addition to using these points often, train yourself to think positively. What you focus on, you attract in your life. Every good thought produces healing neuro-chemicals in your blood stream. Be conscious of replacing negative thoughts with an attitude of gratitude.
