5 Acupoints for Anxiety You Can Administer Yourself

acupoints for anxiety

“At a time when people are so conscious of maintaining their physical health by controlling their diets, exercising, and so forth, it makes sense to try to cultivate the corresponding mental attitudes too.”

– HH the Dalai Lama, 1963

It can be easy to forget how much our mental state can affect our physical well-being. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, that connection is evident in the treatment strategies, but it is also true that when we are feeling bad, we don’t always think to look at our minds. It works both ways.  continue reading »

Patience is a Virtue Acupuncture can Help

anger and impatience

 

On Sunday mornings sometimes I like to watch “The Sunday Morning Show” on CBS.

This morning the opening piece was about patience and its affect on our health.

Dr. Amit Sood was interviewed by Berry Peterson about his research on impatience at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

“Impatience is not simply the opposite of patience, Sood explained. Rather, the absence of patience brings anxiety, illness, injury, loneliness — and even death.”

It’s negative affects can cause…

  • Elevated Blood pressure
  • Anger and stress levels
  • Aging and Chromosomal DNA abnormalities
  • Heart Attack
  • Feeling of no control

“If you choose to be patient, you are helping yourself. You’re living longer and happier. And you’re helping your loved ones. Being patient is a choice,” Dr. Sood said.

And, I love this one.  Another word Sood said would help us through the pandemic: Resilience. 

Acupuncture can help you choose to be more patient.  It is about establishing a new healthier outlook.

Many acupuncture points help people gain insight, and a new perspective.

To develop a more patient and resilient disposition you can try acupressure.  Press, tap or rub each of these points one minute each twice daily. Here are a few example points to use.

Du-Governor 20: One Hundred Meetings

Gives perspective of what life is about as an individual and humankind, what is the right way.  Moves a person forward to a different level of understanding.  Clears mind and lifts spirit.

Location: at the crown top of head.  Found by drawing an imaginary line from the tips of your ears to the center of your head, and center line from the tip of your nose.

Liver 13: Chapter Gate.  This is an awesome point also known as the gate of hope.  It is useful in helping someone move forward in different chapters of their life.  It is regulating in that the gate is open allowing movement forward, but with appropriate patience.  This means not speeding ahead before it’s time.  Plans are not always clear, and we don’t have control.  We can learn that this is alright, and we can let go of the need to always be right, and to always have control.  All will be well.  This point gives us hope that the flow of life is moving as nature intended.  

Location: lies at the tip of the 11th rib, or just inferior and anterior to it.  Just feel for the bottom of your rib cage on the anterior lateral aspect.
