#TaimeOutTip: (Swipe left for other #pressurepoints) suffer from #headaches no more, an easy way to find the exact location of this #accupressure#massage point is to squeeze your thumb into your index finger and the top of the “lump” created by the web is your spot. The point itself is about as big as a #nickel so don’t feel that you need to be pinpoint accurate in finding it. You can see in the photos where the point lies. This point is prescribed for any issue related to the head and #face, including:
♂️ #Redness and #swelling of the #eyes
♀️ Swelling or puffiness in the face
♀️ #knee pain, particularly in #athletes
Although you’re not going to be inserting #needles into yourselves, this point is still highly effective with acupressure as well. Using your #thumb and #forefinger of the opposite #hand, squeeze this area until you feel a mild #discomfort. Continue to hold that pressure for 20 – 30 seconds and then release. Repeat as often as necessary throughout the day until you feel that you have evoked a change in the #condition from which you are suffering. This is a #fantastic combination to add to your ice, heat and stretching regimen, especially when dealing with an #injury or #ailment. The only caution that comes with the point is that it is contra-indicated in #pregnancy due to its ability to promote #labor.
