Where is your qi? We do acupressure

September 9, 2020


There are several hundred acupuncture points in the human body. By pressing your fingers on the most important ones, you can improve blood circulation and stimulate the flow of qi – the life energy that unites the body, mind and spirit. This is the goal of acupressure, an ancient technique of Chinese medicine. Everyone can make themselves a useful acupressure. We share tips from the book “How to make friends with your head.”


Follow the basic principles:

  • Press firmly on the point for 1-3 minutes – with your fingers, palm, edge of the hand, or knuckles. The pressure should be strong enough to cause pain, but not severe pain.
  • If you are in too much pain, do not have to endure: reduce the pressure. Mild pain should be a sign that your body is responding to changes, but not more.
  • After the session, a slight dizziness may remain, but it is quickly replaced by a surge of strength and relaxation.
  • Sometimes the stimulation (pain, itching, etc.) is felt in the wrong part of the body to which the acupressure is applied. This reflected pain is normal and indicates a connection between parts of our body.
  • After the massage, drink two glasses of warm water. This will help flush out the toxins released from your body.
  • If you have any health problems, consult your doctor first.


Here are six acupuncture points to improve memory:

1. Meeting Point # 100. Place your right hand behind your right ear, your left behind your left, and move your fingers up until they touch each other at the top of your head. There is a small depression here. Press on this point for at least a minute.

2. Temporal cavities. Move your fingers horizontally away from your eyebrows until they are in the indentation at your temples. Press on both points at the same time and hold your fingers for at least a minute.

3. Point of the third eye. It is located between the eyebrows just above the bridge of the nose.

4. The gates of consciousness. These points are located under the base of the skull at a distance of 5 cm from the middle of the neck, on either side of the spine.

5. Points of three miles. These two points are located four fingers below the kneecaps and one finger width outside the tibia.

6. Point on the foot. It is located at the top of the foot, between the bones where the thumb and second toe meet.
