Acupressure For Emotional Healing

Traumatic events and painful experiences cause the body to shut down and entrap negative feelings, resulting in physical ailments and emotional imbalances. Acupressure releases this muscular tension and restores the flow of vital energy, making resolution possible
 
Self Healing Technique:
 
Tuning Out-
GV 26, located between the upper lip and nose is a famous first-aid revival point. Apply pressure firmly into the upper gum to counteract emotional numbness and dissociation.
 
Calming Anxiety:
Sea of Tranquility (CV 17, located on the center of the breastbone) is the best point to hold during an emotional release for calming anxiety, panic attacks, and nervousness. Hold this point when you feel frustrated, irritated, or tense. It releases tightness in the chest and makes deep breathing easier.
 
Depression & Grief:
Place your hands on opposite Lu 1 points in the upper, outer chest region. Holding Lu 1 aids in letting go of depression, grief, and expectations. Breathe deeply into these points, breathing out any worrisome thoughts, for two minutes.
 
Overwhelm & Worry:
Briskly rub both St 36 (four finger-widths below the kneecap and outside of the shinbone) with your fist for one minute. Repeat this several times a day for a few months. St 36 is effective for preventing dissociation and helps the client to the ground and stabilize after an emotional release.
