Massage This Spot On Your Legs And Start Sleeping Better At Night
January 3, 2016
The health benefits of acupuncture have long been acknowledged and studied, but did you know that you can get the same benefits without using needles? This practice is called Acupressure.
Traditional Chinese Medical Theory describes special "acupoints", or acupressure points, that lie along meridians, or channels, in your body. By pressing these specific points on the body, one can improve blood flow, which increases oxygen delivery and help heal the body.
The San Yin Jiao Point
The San Yin Jiao point represents an important field in acupuncture/acupressure. It is located on the inner part of the tibia on both legs.
Acupressure practitioners claim that treating this point helps with abdominal distention, digestion, menstrual disorders and pain, infertility, insomnia, stress, and anxiety.
It also helps to cleanse and regulate the spleen and kidneys, which help keep your blood in optimal shape.
How To Find This Pressure Point
Place four fingers above your ankle on the inside of your leg, just behind the shin bone.
To massage this acupoint, press your thumb on it in circular motion for 6 seconds. Release for 2 seconds. Continue to repeat this for 5 minutes and then switch legs. Use every day before bed to help you sleep.
