What are Acupressure Points?

Acupressure points are "places on the skin that are especially sensitive to bioelectrical impulses in the body and conduct those impulses readily".

Several thousand years old, Chinese Medicine conceived of these points as junctures of special pathways (or meridians) that carry the vital life force or qi. When these points are stimulated, either manually (acupressure) or with needles (acupuncture), this assists the body in self-healing.

There are several acupressure points on the body that are useful for calming stress and promoting relaxation. Two important points are:
1. The Third Eye acupressure point is located between the eyebrows, “in the indentation where the bridge of the nose meets the forehead”. It is best to use the middle finger at the point and hold with gentle pressure for approximately one minute. It is recommended for “spiritual and emotional imbalances, headaches, and eyestrain”, among other things.
2. The Sea of Tranquility acupressure point is located on the center of the breastbone, “three thumbs widths up from the base of the bone”. It is recommended to relieve “nervousness, anxiety, frustration, irritability, insomnia, and depression”.

An NIH report stated that according to their clinical evidence, acupuncture was considered to have potential clinical value for "nausea/vomiting and dental pain, and limited evidence suggested its potential in the treatment of other pain disorders, paralysis and numbness, movement disorders, depression, insomnia, breathlessness, and asthma".
