Acupressure is an easy to learn, easy to use healing method based on ancient Chinese theory of energy meridians.

Most people are familiar with the basic concept of using acupuncture needles to influence these energy meridians and bring about bodily healing. But you can also use your fingertips as well, with no need for needles or a trained practitioner.

On this page you'll find a complete acupressure guide for a variety of injuries and illnesses. This guide is based on the longstanding acupressure points guide located at PointFinder.org.

When just a body part is listed (hand, foot, chest, etc) instead of a particular illness, that means that those points will be effective at promoting healing of any injury in that part of the body.

Acupressure Instructions

To conduct acupressure, apply deep, probing pressure to the specific points of the body listed below. Use your fingertips or knuckles to apply this pressure. To maximize effectiveness, apply steady pressure to each point for about three minutes a piece.

Do not use an acupressure point if the point is under a mole, wart, varicose vein, bruise, cut, or if the skin at the point is injured in any way.
