Upset Stomach
Massage the thumb to the point of warming it. The stomach and spleen meridians will respond to this. Also, you can directly apply pressure in the center of your palm.
Cold or Sore Throat
As with an upset stomach, massage the thumb until you warm it. Alternatively, apply pressure on the web of your hand for a few seconds. Also, press with your thumb and index finger on both sides of the nail on your thumb.
Use gentle pressure to massage the whole hand. Follow by applying pressure directly on your middle finger just below your nail.
Menstrual Cramps or Abdominal Pain
Start by massaging the whole hand gently then press the point on your index finger just your nail on the side closest to your thumb. Also, apply pressure on the side of your small finger just away from the nail toward the outside.
The first thing you do when using acupressure is massage your hands together for about 60 seconds to increase the energy flow in your hands. This will also improve your hand sensitivity. Follow with a gentle massage using your fingers and thumb of your opposite hand to warm up the skin.
What you do next is apply firm pressure on the affected area using your opposite thumb and fingers. You hold like this for 1-5 minutes then repeat the procedure 1-5 times, depending on how many reps you need to relieve the pain. You can also do the treatments every day to prevent the occurrence of this specific issue.
If the area on your hand is more sensitive, hold for 3-5 seconds. Maintain the pressure while slowly massaging in small clockwise circles up to five times. Follow by a short break. It’s important to massage the tissue, not just rub the skin. Press again firmly holding for about a minute. Take a break then repeat up to five times.
Another important thing strongly recommended by massage therapists is maintaining proper hydration. Getting enough liquids is vital for optimal tissue health as well as better circulation. It also supports effective toxin elimination from the blood following a massage.
Pregnant women should be particularly careful when using acupressure. In fact, they should avoid deep pressure on the web of the hand as this can trigger uterine contractions. During pregnancy, supervision by a professional MT is a must. Previous Page
