As discussed previously, stress is a major issue for fertility patients. Today, we will discuss the top 5 Acupressure points for Stress.
Acupoints are points on the body that runs closest to the surface. Acupressure uses those acupoints to stimulate energy with a massage.
This point is located about one and a half inches between the first and second toes where the point feels tender. This point is often used to treat premenstrual breast tenderness, headache, and mood swings.
PC6 is located on the inner wrist two inches below the wrist in the center between two tendons. This point helps to regulate menstruation, relax the mind, and treats anxiety, insomnia, and depression. It is also often used before the IVF transfer.
This point is located on the inner wrist wrinkle on the pinky side. This point relaxes the mind and helps with insomnia, anxiety, and nightmares.
Yintang is located between the eyebrows and is the closest point to the pituitary gland(which regulates our hormones!).
This point also helps to relax the mind and as a bonus resolves front head headaches.
This point is located at the inner edge of the eyebrow. Like it’s neighbor the Yintang, it also regulates the pituitary gland and resolves hormonal headaches.
There are many other acupressure points that will help with stress, however, these are the five we feel are the most important and easy to use.
