Ha Ha, am amused today by the horses blog subject request. Acupressure points for frustration, irritability and dealing with Change for humans. The last few weeks, I have switched from using a PC to a Mac. It’s been like returning to kindergarden learning a whole new system. I had to use these points frequently to help me calm myself as I navigated my way through what was once easy, simple and done without thought, to being overwhelmed, frustrated, overloaded by information and ready to scream. They helped immensely. Now, just as my confidence was returning, not only has Facebook renovated, but so has this webpage setup! So the horses are laughingly recommending I post these points for all humans who are dealing with frustration and irritability as they adapt to change.
Acupressure is an ancient healing art developed in Asia over 3,000 years ago, using the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension, and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force energy (Qi or chi) to promote health and healing. Using the same points as Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupressure applies a comfortable range of pressure from gentle to firm. Acupressure is safe, non-toxic and definitely habit forming…
To perform acupressure, place the ball of your thumb or middle finger on the acupressure point. Gently apply direct pressure to the point while exhaling. Use prolonged pressure directly on the point; gradual, steady, penetrating pressure for approximately three minutes is ideal. Slowly release the point while inhaling and move on to the next point. Trust yourself, relax, breath deeply, go with the flow of energy and enjoy!
