Acupuncture points related to blood pressure
High blood pressure can be easily controlled by acupressure. Pressurize or massage the following points on your body for about 1 minute.
- Gall Bladder 20: It is found at the back of your neck, in the depression on either side of the vertebra. It is present right at the base end of the skull. Apply a steady medium pressure in this point using your thumb for 1 minute or longer while taking deep breaths.
- Governing Vessel 20: This point is located at the top of your head, at the center of an imaginary line drawn between both your ears. By pressurizing this point, you can calm your nerves, alleviate depression and also reduces headaches.
- Pericardium 6: This point is located at the inner forearm, approximately at the center of your wrist. By stimulating this point with firm pressure anxiety, slower hear beat rates can be overcome easily. Thus indirectly it helps in reducing blood pressure.
- LV 3 or Tai Chong: It is located approximately about 2 fingers width above the place where your big toe is located. This point is highly beneficial for high blood pressure, lower back pain, menstrual cramps and insomnia.
