So many people have asked me how to hold this pain relief point underneath the base of the skull.  I am excited to share this clip with you, to give you clear instructions on where to press this (GB 20) acupressure point. I’ll show you how to use your thumbs or knuckles to fully discover the benefits. Please share this clip with people who are under stress, suffer from headaches, uptightness, irritability, stiffness, neck problems or aches and pains, including insomnia, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue.

GB20 Hortizontal

Gates of Consciousness Point (GB 20)

This clip will give you an excellent sample of the self-healing techniques I am currently writing for a new e-book, which I’d like to make available online next year, so stay tuned. Let me know how this clip works for you in the comments section below. Practice this routine 3 to 4 times daily, to transform how you feel, counteract stiffness, aches and pains. Stimulate this point anytime, anywhere, especially before going to sleep. The results are cumulative; the more you practice, the better you’ll feel the next day. For best results, hold the points 3 to 5 minutes as you breath deeply, sitting in a comfortable chair. Lay down to deeply relax for another 3 to 5 minutes immediately afterward, to gain the full benefits of acupressure point therapy.

  1. Wonderful!
    I really appreciate your explications, you are a great person in the right place. I live in Spain so can´t attend your classes personally, please make more films like this one.
    With love,

  2. Thank you so much for the beautifully clear instructions ! I have two of your acupressure books ( Potent points & Emotional Healing) and find them very helpful. I do appreciate the videos showing precisely how to place the fingers or knuckles on the correct spots.
    And I would love to see you do an “E” book. thank you again !

  4. Thanks Michael.
    Your help in locating this pressure point is much appreciated.
    As an amateur player with taiji and acupressure, I am familiar with GB-20,
    but I haven’t had much hands-on experience to locate the precise point.
    When playing with this point, I find that it also helps to tilt my head not only backwards, but also to one side laterally or the other–
    When I just tilt backwards the gaps between the sternocleidomastoid and trapezius muscles tend to close the gap too much and I lose contact with the most tender point of the hollow.
    Tilting a bit to one side (say to the right shoulder) seems to let the mastoid muscle on the opposite side (left) relax a little more.
    Maybe I’ve been probing too low below the occiptal bone.

  5. Presently I am reading your articles, which are really useful, I yet to start practicing as I am yet not very clear of pressure points, for which need your precious help.Thank you & all the best.

  6. Thanks Michael.
