Recently I did a post that featured some acupressure points from Michael Reed Gach (of Acupressure.com) that are good for dealing with jaw pain, TMJ, headaches and sinus congestion. Well, here’s more useful information from a newsletter of Gach’s…..
(by Michael R Gach) Here are several healing thoughts, suggestions and points to support you to continue to learn, heal and grow. I hope my input empowers you to use acupressure on yourself and others. My intention is to cultivate your interest in hands-on healing. I also want to share with you even deeper levels for learning how to heal, using the points to enhance your life.
HOW LONG DO YOU HOLD A POINT?
Hold for 1 to 3 minutes as you breathe slowly & deeply. Be sure to apply the pressure gradually. If you feel a connection with the point, hold for a full 3 minutes. For instance, if your client’s sinuses are blocked, hold St3 underneath the cheekbone for a few minutes until you feel a pulse in your fingertips to open the sinuses.
DOUBTS ABOUT HEALING:
When you practice Acupressure (whether on yourself or others), and doubts arise, whether it’s worrying if you’re doing the right thing, or if you’re on the right point, remember — the purpose of your life and the purpose of doing Acupressure is not to sit around and worry. Doubts distract you from healing and can strangle your body’s vital life force. Instead, whenever you find yourself worrying or doubting, let it be a clue to take several slow, deep breaths. Just 4 or 5 super deep breaths can counteract worry and doubt to allow your healing energy to flow again.
TO RELIEVE GROIN PAIN, MENSTRUAL, ABDOMINAL CRAMPING, or SEXUAL REPRODUCTIVE PROBLEMS
Use the “Rushing Door Points” Sp12 and Sp13. Bend your leg. In the center of your groin crease is where energy tends to block-up. Gradually apply pressure slowly with your fingertips or use your knuckles to gradually press into the inguinal ligament, the big ropey cord there. You’ll feel a muscular cord in the crease where your leg joins the trunk of your body. Hold Sp12 and Sp13 points while laying down for 2 to 3 minutes, taking long slow deep breaths to discover the benefits.
No drugs or side effects; it’s natural, and all you need is your hands.
