Acupressure May Help Deal With Insomnia

It’s frustrating to have nighttime wakefulness. Despite trying different positions to have a good sleep, still we end up having busy sleepless minds. Pressing certain points in our body may help us with sleep imbalances that usually come from stress and a lack of being able to calm or soothe oneself.

Inner Frontier Gate

The inner frontier gate point is found on our arm, about three finger widths below our wrist. Stimulating this point may help to reduce anxiety while also relieving nausea and pain.

To ease insomnia, we need to turn our hands over so that our palms are facing up. Take one hand and count three finger widths down from the wrist crease and apply a steady downward pressure between the two tendons in this location. Massage the area for four to five seconds using a circular or up-and-down motion.

Spirit Gate

This point is located at the crease on our outer wrist, just below our pinkie finger. Applying pressure on this point is associated with quieting our mind, thus helping us fall asleep.

For those suffering from insomnia, simply feel for the small, hollow space in this area and apply gentle pressure in a circular or up-and-down movement. Continue doing this for two to three minutes. Hold the left side of the point with gentle pressure for a few seconds, and then hold the right side. Repeat this on the same area of the other wrist.

Wind Pool

This point is behind the earlobe, toward the top of the neck and the base of our skull. It is known to be one of the most useful acupressure points when it comes to treating insomnia.

Simply place the thumbs on these points found on either side. Bending the head slightly forward, and then backward again, will help us feel these points easily. Gently massage in slow rotary movements while taking deep breaths. Inhale long breaths, build up for a few seconds, and release the breath slowly.

Gushing Spring

The gushing spring point can be found on the sole of the foot. It’s the small depression under the ball of the foot between the second and third metatarsal bone. Stimulating this pressure point is believed to ground our energy, and renew and revitalize our mind and body to induce sleep.

To treat insomnia, we need to lie back with our knees bent in order to reach our feet with our hands. Take one foot in the hand and curl toes. Press the point to a degree where the pain is bearable. Gently massage in slow rotary movements. Repeat these steps on the other foot.

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
