As the months grow colder, it is important to have your energy aligned and
balanced. Here is a great point to incorporate into your fall season acupuncture
routine (or acupressure for #SelfCare).
Known as “Adjoining Valleys” Large Intestine 4 is often used to balance energies.
This powerful point is a part of clearing the system and replenishing Qi. Start by
turning your hand palm side down, now squeezing together the thumb and index
finger. From here you will be able to locate the fleshy mound between the two
fingers, and this is where LI4 can be found. Stimulating this point can be as simple
as using your thumb on your other hand.
This acupuncture point can be used to ease pain in the arm, shoulder and elbow.
Large Intestine 11 can also regulate the digestive system. Also good for sore throat,
toothache, redness and pain of the eye, urticaria, abdominal pain, vomiting,
diarrhea, heat-related diseases. This point can be found in the crease of the
below. To locate LI 11, begin by bending your elbow 90 degrees and place your
thumb on the outside (lateral aspect?) of the elbow and apply pressure
Lung 2, also known as “Gathering Clouds” is a very powerful point for subsiding the
symptoms of stress, bringing calm fresh energy back into the body. If you are looking
to embrace the balancing refreshing powers of LU 2, apply pressure to the depression
where the collarbone meets the shoulder blade. This point is also good for cough,
asthma, shoulder and arm, fullness and pain in the chest.
