21 Useful Acupressure Points

Acupressure points are on both sides of the body unless noted by
(s) for single point. For ease of use the Acupressure points here
are just sequentially numbered, these numbers do not relate to their
anatomical name which is listed in each diagram. A unit of
measurement call a Cun is often referred to. The finger
of the client is used, not the therapist.

To find the exact location, use the diagrams displayed then apply
pressure with finger or thumb until the most sensitive spot is
found, this will be the correct position.

Numerous techniques are used to stimulate Acupressure points.
The most common is to apply pressure with finger or thumb for a
20 to 30 second period. Rest for a moment then reapply pressure.
You may need to do this several times until the sensitivity
decreases. Another method is to sharply tap the point with the
index finger.

As you start to improve, you can back-off the treatments.
