The last time we talked about acupressure we presented a simple hand massage technique that worked for headaches and stress. Today we’ll discuss another interesting acupressure point that can help you and it hardly takes any effort or time.
The point on your forehead that you will be working with is called the Third Eye point. It is located between the eyebrows, slightly above where the upper bridge of the nose meets the forehead.
Applying upward pressure to this point on the forehead improves concentration, releases tension, relieves headaches, and can also benefit your eyes, especially if you are spending long hours in front of a computer.
What do you need to do?
With a gentle pressure starting from the Third Eye point, stroke upwards to about 3 inches above in a vertical line. Apply upward pressure to this area for 45 to 60 seconds and you won’t have to wait long for the benefits.
Experts explain that this massage ’activates an area of the brain which affects the human lymphatic system causing elimination of nervous tension. Additionally, this procedure efficiently counteracts creation of new wrinkles, facilitates blood and lymph flow (prevents swelling) and helps with regenerative processes.’
So, if you’ve suddenly got a headache, or your eyes are tired after a long day, you know what to do!
