Improving Eczema Symptoms with Acupressure

Improving Eczema Symptoms with Acupressure

Those of us who have suffered from eczema (such as Atopic Dermatitis) know how unpleasant this condition can be. Fortunately, there are techniques that can ease the symptoms of this condition. After considerable research, I have found out that a number of different sources (sites dedicated to the problem of eczema or acupuncture manuals), agree on the same techniques for this skin issue.

In this post, I am going to share several techniques which, if practiced daily for a number of weeks, may bring relief.

Acupuncture and Acupressure

Acupuncture and acupressure have both proven to be successful in relieving symptoms of eczema. First, let’s have a look at the difference between these two ways of treatment:

Acupuncture

Acupuncture uses fine needles, inserted at specific points along the body’s energetic pathways (meridians). This is believed to restore and balance the flow of energy necessary for healing. You need to find a qualified acupuncture practitioner to get a treatment, and you’ll usually need a number of sessions for the treatment to be effective.

Acupressure

Acupressure works on the same principle, but uses fingertips instead of needles. This means that you can apply this treatment to yourself or others, at home or wherever suits you.

Improvement Through Acupressure

In one of their articles at nationaleczema.org, Kachiu C. Lee, M.D. and Peter A. Lio, M.D. describe a study that has been conducted by Northwestern University’s Department of Dermatology to explore the effects of acupressure.

The participants of the experiment – all eczema sufferers – were divided into two groups: An experimental group and a control group. Both groups were instructed to continue their usual regime of eczema treatments, such as oral medications, steroid creams, moisturizers etc.

The subjects from the experimental group were also instructed to apply pressure at a specific acupuncture point (shown later in this article). They would have to do this on a daily basis for four weeks.

The participants in the control group were told to just stick to their usual regime of treatment, and not use any acupressure or acupuncture during these four week period.

The Results

After the four weeks passed, all participants were invited for follow-up examination. The subjects in the experimental group (those who were instructed to work with specific acupressure points) reported noticeable improvement of their eczema symptomps, including decreased itching sensation.

The participants from the control group who did not use any acupressure, had no noticeable change in their skin condition.

Acupressure Point for Eczema

The acupressure point used in the study was Large Intestine 11. This point lies on the energetic channel that not only nourishes the organ Large Intestine, but impacts the health of other organs and systems such as the skin. This is where it is located:

Large Intestine 11

There are two more points which are often used for alleviating symptoms of eczema, and I would highly recommend including these in your daily routine, together with the Large Intestine 11 (LI 11).

These are: Spleen 10 and Bladder 40.

Note: The pictures come from my favourite app called POINTS, and are licenced to Miridia Acupuncture Technology. If you’d like to find out more out this app, you can read my review here. 

How to Apply Acupressure

To work with the acupressure points, use your thumb (on any finger of your preference) and apply steady pressure to a given point. Rub/stimulate the point in a circular motion for 1-2 minutes. Ideally, you may want to do this on a daily basis for at least two weeks, or until you start noticing some relief in itchiness, sensation of heat, or the number of lesions.

It is best to incorporate the acupressure sessions in your daily activities, e.g. when you relax, watch TV, wait in a queue, lie in bed, etc.

Perseverance Pays Off

Working with the points is easy: Simply press or rub the point in a circular motion for 1-2 minutes. However, if you’d like to see results, it is necessary to stick to this treatment for a number of weeks, as in the experiment by the Northwestern University’s Department of Dermatology. Just integrate it in your daily routine and you may be well rewarded for your discipline sooner or later.

Recap

The three acupressure points for alleviating symptoms of eczema are:

Large Intestine 11

Spleen 10

Bladder 40.

They should be stimulated/rubbed in circular motion for 1-2 minutes.

Here are pictures of each point once more:

Healthy Liver

Another important point to mention in connection with eczema is the health of the liver which regulates detoxification of the blood. Often, the red itchy patches will become more inflamed when your blood has high level of toxins.

Massaging the Neurolymphatic Points

One way to encourage the elimination of those toxins is by regularly massaging the neurolymphatic points of the Liver, which are located (all along the line) under the right breast. This method is frequently used by osteopaths, chiropractors, kinesiologists, energy medicine practitioners etc.

Energy Medicine in Action

Energy Medicine in Action

The following lines are selected entries from my Energy Medicine Journal, where I describe my experience with energy work. It’s nice to remember all those rewarding moments when I was able to help someone by applying various healing techniques. I hope you will find some of it useful.

Easing Pain at the Side of the Neck

My husband complained about pain at the side of his neck. I checked the Eden Method diagram which shows the relationship of muscles and meridians, and found out that the muscle in the painful area is connected with the Kidney meridian. I sedated the Kidney meridian. I also used an additional technique called pain dispersing, for which I used a wooden brush and tapped the painful area.

To find how to sedate the Kidney meridian, visit my posts The Kidney Meridian, and  Acupressure Strengthening and Sedating Points. For pain dispersing and other useful pain-relief techniques, check my post 6 Non-Invasive Pain Rellief Techniques. 

A Surprisingly Fast Relief from Hay Fever

I was suffering from hayfever symptoms and decided to use some acupressure points to help me relieve the sneezing and all the other allergy symptoms. I was pressing and massaging an acupuncture point on my instep, (called Liver 3 – see the picture below) and after about a minute of doing so, the tingling in my nose, as well as the sneezing, suddenly stopped. My eyes stopped itching as well.

Relief from Menstrual Pain

One of my friends was suffering from menstrual pain, which involved lower back pain and pain in the groin area. She said she would normally use a painkiller, but didn’t have any with her. I decided to use specific acupressure points to calm (sedate) two meridians: Kidney and Liver. For the lower back pain, I sedated the Kidney meridian, and for the groin pain, I sedated the Liver meridian.

You can find the techniques here: Acupressure Strengthening and Sedating Points.

After sedating both meridians, which altogether took about 12 minutes, my friend’s face lit. She looked at me with slight disbelief, smiling, and said that the pain had subsided from intense to barely noticeable.

The Daily Energy Routine

Some of the enertgy medicine techniques that I use daily have been compiled into a set of simple exercises called the Daily Energy Routine. You can easily incorporate it into your day, and it will reward you with more energy, improved focus, better mood, and an increasingly stronger immune system. I am happy to share that thanks to opractising this rtoutine daily, I have been free from colds for more than three years now. 

Acknowledgments

I would like to thank Donna Eden for her amazing method in which she merges ancient and modern healing techniques. The Daily Energy Routine is a crucial component of her method and it has helped thousands to keep their health in balance. 

Also, my big thanks go to Miridia Acupuncture Technology for developing the highly useful Points app.

7 Techniques for Seasonal Allergy Relief

7 Techniques for Seasonal Allergy Relief

This post is dedicated to our lovely neighbour who suffers from seasonal allergies like I do. If you are one of us, you may find the information here helpful.

Meadow

If you are short of time and can’t read the whole article, just watch this short video by Carey Philips, Eden Energy Medicine Certified Practitioner. It is thanks to so her tips that I managed to ease the irritating symptoms of hayfever.

How This Video Helped Me

I woke up last week into a beautiful May’s morning, and as soon as I breathed in the flower-scented air, I started sneezing, couldn’t stop blowing my nose (and waking up my husband with the annoying fanfare), and my eyes felt all puffy and itchy. As an energy medicine enthusiast, I started looking for some tips on YouTube, and found Carey’s video.

A Surprisingly Fast Relief

I followed all the exercises demonstrated by Carey, but one technique in particular seemed to work incredibly fast: When I started pressing and massaging an acupuncture point on my instep, (called Liver 3 – see the picture in Technique 3) after about a minute of doing so, the tingling in my nose, as well as the sneezing, suddenly stopped. My eyes stopped itching as well.

I felt very different from just a few moments back – what a relief. I immediately shared this technique with my husband, who was suffering from the same issue, and, to our joy, his symptoms eased as well. We entered our garden, and instead of having to run back in the house and hide from all the pollen flying in the air, we enjoyed breakfast outside without any symptoms. 

A Closer Look at the Techniques

Let’s have a closer look at the techniques in Carey Philips’ video. These exercises – if practiced frequently – can boost the immune system, stimulate a healthier flow of energy in your body, and address allergy symptoms such as headaches, itchy and watery eyes, sneezing, runny or congested nose, or sore throat.

Technique 1: Four Thumps

(0:30 – 1:10 in the video)

This is adapted from Donna Eden’s Daily Energy Routine, a simple but powerful set of exercises that help boost your immunity and establish healthy habits in your body’s energy systems.

I highly recommend learning the whole Daily Energy Routine and doing it every day. I credit this for not having had a cold for more than two years – since I have started practicing it daily. I’ll share Donna Eden’s video of the whole sequence at the end of this post.

Technique 2: Figures of Eight Around the Eyes

(1:10 – 1:31 in Carey Philip’s video)

Draw, tap or pinch figures of eight around your eyes. This will help relieve congested energy.

Technique 3: Liver 3 Acupuncture point

(1:32 – 2:13)

This is the technique that worked for me most in terms of easing the hay fever symptoms.

Find the Liver 3 acupuncture point on the instep of your foot, press and massage it. Carey Philips Explains very well how to find it, so I recommend skipping the segment in the video (1:40). Massaging this point helps relieve itchiness of the eyes and other allergic symptoms such as sneezing, which I’m happy to confirm through my own experience.

What I find interesting is that if you press this point and find it point tender, it confirms that the energy is stuck there, thus in need of a good massage in order to free the energy – and easing your symptoms as a consequence.

Here is an illustration of the Liver 3 point, as seen in the app called Points:

points - interactive acupuncture software

Note: This image is licensed to Miridia Acupuncture Technology, the developer of the Points app. You can read my review of the app here.

Technique 4: The Crown Pull

(2:13 – 2:52)

This technique helps relive congested energy in the head, which often manifests through headaches, sinus pressure or difficulty to concentrate.

Technique 5: Large Intestine 4 Acupuncture point

(2:53 – 3:25)

As with the Liver 3 point on the foot, (technique no 3), frequently massaging this point down the webbing between your thumb and index finger helps relieve sneezing and runny nose.

And again, if you press this point and find it tender, it’s a sign that you need to work on it.

 Lareg Intestine 4 Acupoint

Technique 6: Triple Warmer Smoothie

(3:28 – 4:10)

When we have allergies, the meridian Triple Warmer is over-active, so it’s helpful to calm its energies by tracing its flow backwards. Follow the video to learn this technique, which helps with easing allergic symptoms, as well as making you feel calmer in general. I’m happy to share that this technique has helped me many times during stressful situations, helping me not to over-react or simply ‘lose it’!

Technique 7: Massage Spleen meridian end points

(4:12 – 4:28)

Massaging these acupressure points helps strengthen immunity and rebalance your energies.

The Daily Energy Routine

Here is Donna Eden’s Daily Energy Routine, which you can easily incorporate in your day – it can be done in bed, in the shower, while waiting for the kettle to boil, on the walk…and it will always reward you with notable benefits, such as more energy, improved focus, better mood, and increasingly stronger immune system.

Your Health in Balance: Donna Eden and Energy Medicine

Your Health in Balance: Donna Eden and Energy Medicine

Donna Eden Method

The increasingly popular discipline in the field of healthcare, Energy Medicine, is based on the fact that our bodies are composed of a large grid of energies. Although it is a platform that exists beyond the world of tangibility, its manifestations are clearer than daylight. When we switch on a lamp, we trigger the flow of electricity in order to create light; when we feel physical pain, we usually view the unpleasant sensation as a combination of inner forces, either bio-chemical or electromagnetic reactions, but most of us are not aware that we own a similar ‘switch’ that can influence those inner forces.

This symbolical switch represents a number of aspects or physical tools: For instance, our own hands that can influence the flow of our energies through their own electromagnetic fields. Similarly, our thoughts and intentions can alter the chemistry in our brain, and often trigger the healing process. The placebo effect is a good example of this.

Donna Eden

While already aware and fascinated by the science of Energy Medicine, when I got to know the internationally acclaimed Energy Medicine practitioner Donna Eden, it felt as if a treasure-box of knowledge had opened for me. I have learned about countless techniques that one can use to mobilise health-enhancing inner energies, strengthen one’s immunity, and empower your mind by being able to control it better.

Donna Eden, David Feinstein and Vishen Lakhiani

Donna and David with the founder of Mindvalley Vishen Lakhiani

Donna Eden has been teaching people to understand the amazing energy system of the body for many years. She does this with incredible passion, because through using these techniques, she managed to heal herself from Multiple Sclerosis. She was told by several doctors that she would not live long (this was in her twenties) and she was advised to ‘put her affairs in order’.

Interestingly enough, when her doctor presented her with this death sentence, she didn’t give in to despair (especially because she had two young daughters!) but instead came to the following conclusion – ‘Well, if the doctors can’t heal me, I’ll have to do it..!’

And she did.

Using her own energies, which she can see (she was born with this ability), it took her about a year to recover from Multiple Sclerosis and a number of other health challenges, including asthma and some serious allergies.

Empowering Others

After this incredible self-healing experience, Donna embarked on a life-mission to help others to take their health into their own hands.

Although she can see energies, (including systems mapped in ancient times such as meridians and chakras) she insist that everyone can learn energy healing, and empowers others with simple but powerful techniques that don’t require any clairvoyant ability at all.

Donna has been teaching Energy Medicine for over forty years, and many of Donna’s students are physicians, nurses, and other mainstream health professionals. She has been a consultant or guest speaker in numerous universities, hospitals, and corporations.

As a practitioner, she has worked in both traditional and alternative health-care settings. She has been travelling to countless countries to share her message and features in many online courses, including courses on the legendary platform Mindvalley. 

I feel immensely grateful to have met Donna personally. She is one of the most radiant beings I’ve ever met.

Donna and Lucie in spring 2019, Dorking, UK 

Donna has also written several books, one of which, co-written with the clinical psychologist David Feinstein, is the all-time classic in the vibrational medicine field, Energy Medicine – Balancing Your Body’s Energy for Optimal Health, Joy and Vitality.

In her book, Donna Eden explores the theory that our organisms and their functions are based on the flow of invisible, yet measurable energies, which affect the way we feel and think. If we recognise this, we are on a good path towards maintaining and even improving our energy levels, our health, and overall wellbeing.

Your Body’s Self-healing Power in Your Hands

It is exciting and empowering to discover that the chief practitioner of Energy Medicine is the one who inhabits the body cared for – i.e. you. If you use principles of this blend of ancient Chinese medicine, kinesiology, and acupressure, you will be able to influence your own body’s inherent capabilities to heal itself, prevent illness, and gain a new zest for life.

While Energy Medicine doesn’t diagnose or cure illness in the traditional Western medicine way, it works with subtle energies of the body, which can strengthen our immunity, prevent illness and on many occasions, cause a natural healing process.

Managing Seemingly Uncontrollable Forces

With applied Energy Medicine, you can master the art of acquiring new stamina, vitality and clarity of thinking. You’ll be able to minimise the harmful effects of stress and anxiety, and, on top of that, control your moods. Managing our states of mind is one of the most important tools in life that one can ever hold, and you be amazed how quickly it is possible to get on top of the seemingly uncontrollable force that often dictates our states and can bring us well down, sometimes to a point of self-destructive thoughts or acts.

What’s more, you can soon use what you have learned to improve the wellbeing of other people, which rewards you with a sense of purpose and meaning. To personally grow and contribute is one of the main human needs in the spiritual field, and what can be more meaningful that contributing by helping someone feel better or even regain health?

Learning the Language of our Energies

When we learn about Energy Medicine, we are in fact learning something that our unfathomably intelligent body already understands. It is comparable to learning a new language – in this case, the language of energy. Our lifestyle, due to our drastically changing industrialised environment, has become considerably alienated from the natural rhythm of nature, so in order to stay healthy and balanced, it is twice as much important to live in conscious harmony with one’s own energy systems.

Our bodies have been evolving over millions of years, so from this perspective it is only a fraction of time we have lived in the high technology-driven world we know today. It is quite a task for our bodies, designed to live in the wilderness, to adjust to such a rapid change.

Having said that, our energy system is extremely intelligent and adaptable. Every second, every heartbeat, it manages millions of biochemical processes in our body, most of which we don’t have a clue. We take for granted that we are breathing, digesting and metabolising, that our heart beats, that our eyes blink. Our mind is – fortunately! – not required to understand, let alone manage this incredible, mysteriously interwoven process of the functions of our body that keeps us alive.

On High Alert 24/7

However, it is obvious our bodies are trying hard to adapt to the environment we did not evolve for. While our immune system protects us from a large number of invisible invaders, it often struggles with tacking unnatural particles, such as artificial chemicals in processed foods, exhaust fumes pollution, or men-made electromagnetic radiation. Our immune system is thus on continuous high alert, with hardly getting a break. This, of course, drains our energy and makes us prone to illnesses such as cancer, mental disorders or depression much more than in our distant past.

Our modern lifestyle also means that due to stress we are often on a verge of ‘fight-or-flight’ response, an age-old instinct, which we don’t utilise enough (e.g. due to lack of predators we have to flee from), and therefore we’re almost constantly in a kind of heightened state which we don’t know how to release properly.

Fleeing the Beasts of the Modern Times

This natural, life-saving response of the body is, of course, brilliant, however, it was not designed for modern-day stress management, therefore our body’s energy intelligence is dealing with a tough task indeed; when our computer crashes or when we have a family row, our body still uses the same mighty techniques for fleeing a prehistorical beast.

That means that we symbolically flee those beasts daily, and this puts our body, which thinks we need to save our lives instead of just reboot a laptop, under a massive, unnecessary strain. This then inevitably results in a weakened immune system and being prone to illnesses.

‘Software Update’

It is clear that to a large extent we are out of resonance with our current environment. If we want to keep healthy and feeling great, we have to become more aware of our own body’s energy systems, and actively take part in the evolution of our energy patterns. This is a perfect opportunity to involve our intellect – yes, we can help our already breathtakingly intelligent bodies become healthier and more harmonious. In a way, it is like updating our body energy software, which will function better in the modern world. 

The Daily Energy Routine

Updating our body energy software may sound a bit far-fetched, yet there are very simple techniques that each of us can do and contribute to this process. Several of these techniques have been compiled by Donna Eden in her Daily Energy Routine, which is a set of exercises that she carefully selected after many years’ observation of their high effectiveness. 

It is one of the best gifts you could give to your body, and if you incorporate it into your daily routine, it will reward you with increased energy levels, more vitality, mental clarity, and stronger immune system. I have been practising this routine daily and I haven’t had a cold for more than two years.

More Immunity-boosting Tips

In the following video, Donna and David offer advice about keeping your immunity strong especially during major viral outbreaks. Donna demonstrates a number of immunity-boosting tips you can do ‘on the go’.

Acupressure Strengthening and Sedating Points

Acupressure Strengthening and Sedating Points

3-Bladder_channel_Wellcome-collection

One of the most exciting things about holistic healing is the fact that we can use our hands to facilitate healing processes in our bodies. This is often done by working with meridians (energetic pathways throughout our body) and their acupoints.

On this page, you will find a list of acupressure sedating and strengthening points that you can use for addressing specific issues, such as diminishing pain, strengthening your immunity, boosting your energy, balance your hormones etc. These techniques are based on the systems of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Feel Better by Balancing Your Meridians

Working with your meridians can often make you feel better in minutes. Strengthening the Spleen meridian, for example, can lift you from feeling down, boost your immunity, or even stop an approaching cold from taking hold of you. Sedating the Kidney meridian can diminish lower back pain. I have worked with my meridians many times, and it’s always been very exciting to feel the energetic shifts in my body, experience pain relief, and improvement in my overall state. Equally, it’s been amazing to be able to help others diminish their pain or improve their state in general.

Techniques for Balancing a Meridian

To balance a meridian, you can use the following techniques: 

  • Trace a meridian
  • Flush a meridian
  • Work with the acupressure points of a meridian

Tracing a Meridian

Watch the master practitioner of energy medicine Donna Eden trace all the 14 meridians. 

Flushing a Meridian

How to flush a meridian:

  • Trace it backward once
  • Trace it forward three times

(If you don’t know how to trace a meridian, watch the video above.)

Working With the Acupressure Points of a Meridian

There are three ways we can work with the acupressure points:

  • Sedate
  • Strengthen
  • Use the Three-Point Technique

Further down the page are diagrams that will show you how to sedate or strengthen any meridian, according to your needs.

How Do I Know What Acupoints to Use for a Particular Issue?

I highly recommend an app called POINTS which list a long number of conditions and the treatment protocols – e.g. of you have a headache, you will get a combination of acupoints that you can hold or massage to alleviate your pain. (You can read my review of the POINTS app here)

Sedating a Meridian

Step 1 – Sedate the Meridian 

Sedate (relax) a particular meridian by holding its sedating points. You will be sending its excess energy to the next meridian. (You’ll see how the meridian flow works on The Five Elements Wheel diagram further down.)

The Procedure:

Gently hold the sedating points for 2 – 3 minutes. Use the tips of your fingers (preferably the index or the middle finger).

Do this one side of the body first, (e.g. on your right foot + right arm).

Repeat the same procedure on the other side of the body (your left foot + left arm), also for 2 – 3 minutes.

Step 2 – Stabilise the Energy Flow by Holding the Control (Stabilizing) Points:

We now need to stop the flow of energy from the previous meridian. We’ll be stabilizing the shift in energy by holding the control points.

The Procedure:

Gently hold the two control points for 1,5 minutes.

Do this on both sides of the body.

Strengthening a Meridian

Step 1 – Strengthen the Meridian 

Strengthen the meridian by holding its strengthening points. You will be ‘borrowing energy’ from the previous meridian (see the Flow Wheel lower down)

The Procedure:

Gently hold the strenggetning points for 2 – 3 minutes. Use the tips of your fingers (ideally the index or the middle finger).

Do this one side of the body first, (e.g. your right side) and then repeat the same procedure on the other side of the body, also for 2 – 3 minutes.

Step 2 – Stabilise the Energy Flow by Holding the Control Points:

Gently hold the control points for about 1,5 minutes.

As in the previous step, do this on both sides of the body.

Three-Pointing a Meridian

The Three Point Technique is a combination of sedating and strengthening a meridian in one session. Sometimes a meridian needs to be cleared of stale or toxic energies first in order to receive strengthening energies. This means that we sedate it first to move the old energies out, and then strengthen it. In the end, we use the control points to stabilise the shift.

We often use the Three-Point technique to treat hormonal imbalances, such as during PMS or menopause. (In these cases it’s Kidney, Liver, and Spleen).

Step 1 – Sedate the Meridian:

Sedate (relax) the meridian by sending its excess energy to the next meridian.

The Procedure:

Gently hold the sedating points for 2 minutes. Use the tips of your fingers (preferably the index or the middle finger).

Do this one side of the body first, (e.g. on your right foot + right arm).

Repeat the same procedure on the other side of the body (your left foot + left arm), also for 2 minutes.

Step 2 – Strengthen the Meridian 

After sedating it, you will strengthen the meridian by holding its strengthening points.

The Procedure:

Gently hold the strengthening points for 2 minutes. Use the tips of your fingers (ideally the index or the middle finger).

Do this one side of the body first, (e.g. your right side) and then repeat the same procedure on the other side of the body, also for 2 minutes.

Step 3 – Stabilise the energy flow by holding the control (stabilising) points:

Gently hold the control points for about 1 minute. As in the previous step, do this on both sides of the body.

The Five Elements Wheel

The Five Elements Wheel, used in Traditional Chinese medicine, shows how meridians relate to each other and what elements of nature they represent. It is an excellent reference for working with meridians and their acupoints. For example, when you are holding strengthening points of a meridian, you are sending energy to the meridian from the previous meridian.

When you are holding the sedating points, you are sending energy from the particular meridian to the next meridian on the wheel.

Finally, when you are holding the control points (stabilising points), the flow of energy of particular meridian will be stabilised by another meridian.

An Example of Working with Acupoints of a Meridian

Let’s see an illustrated example of working with a meridian. Let’s say we want to strengthen the Spleen meridian to boost your immunity or to lift you from feeling low. I have selected this particular meridian because this is one of the most important acupressure practices that you can use for self-healing. It is one of my favorite methods for improving my immunity and lifting my spirits.

Strengthening Spleen Meridian

Step 1 – Strengthen the Spleen Meridian 

Strengthen the Spleen meridian by borrowing some energy from the previous meridian (i.e. Heart meridian).

The Procedure:

Gently hold the following two points (Spleen 2 and Heart 8) for 2 – 3 minutes. Use the tips of your fingers (ideally the index or the middle finger).

Do this one side of the body first, (e.g. your right side) and then repeat the same procedure on the other side of the body, also for 2 – 3 minutes.

Step 2 – Stabilise the energy flow by holding the control points:

Gently hold the following two points (Spleen 1 and Liver 1) for about 1,5 minutes.

As in the previous step, do this on both sides of the body.

Spleen 1 + Liver 1 acupressure points

Try the Following!

Here are a few selected issues that you may like to work on by using the list below:

Stomach ache: Sedate The Stomach Meridian

Lower back pain: Sedate The Kidney Meridian

Respiratory problems, cough: Strengthen The Lung Meridian

PMS – hormonal imbalances: Three-Point Kidney, Liver and Spleen Meridians

Feeling depressed: Strengthen The Spleen Meridian

Having low immunity: Strengthen The Spleen Meridian

Feeling anxious, having a panic attack: Sedate The Triple Warmer Meridian

The Kidney Meridian

The Kidney Meridian

Kidney Meridian by Wellcome Collection

In this post, I will share several ancient-healing techniques for working with the Kidney meridian. They are very simple yet powerful, and you will be able to try them immediately. These techniques cause a shift of energy which might energise you, relieve you from physical pain or diminish fearful feelings.

Reservoir of Energy and Centre of Courage

Traditional Chinese medicine regards the Kidney meridian as a reservoir of energy, as well as the centre of courage and willpower. Conversely, a dysfunction in Kidney meridian can result in feeling extremely tired, being overcome by emotions of fear or paranoia, or symptoms and ailments such as asthma, chronic inflammation, or tinnitus.

The good news is that we have tools to keep the Kidney meridian in balance, and thus enjoy a healthy energy flow, vitality, willpower, and courage to move forward in life.

The Pathway of Kidney Meridian

The pathway of the Kidney meridian starts under your foot, on its first acupressure point where energy enters the body. The point is called Kidney 1 (or K1). In the old Chinese medical terminology, which is much more poetic than modern medicine, the point is known as ‘The Wellspring of Life’, ‘Bubbling Spring’, or ‘Gushing Spring’.

Pressing or massaging it can bring you ‘back to life’. In fact, the master practitioner of energy medicine, Donna Eden, has described a situation when an unconscious, dying person was brought back to life after this technique was applied. (Energy Medicine, by Donna Eden, pg 125) 

Kidney 1 Acupressure Point

The Kidney meridian pathway then circles around your ankle, goes up via the back of the legs, and reemerges at the front of the body.

Kidney meridian back view

The meridian then flows up your body all the way under your clavicle. It finishes on the last (and very important) set of acupressure points called K 27.

The K27 are very important points, because they are is a junction point for all the other meridians and you can influence how you feel by working with these points. The K 27 are considered the “energy switch” of the body: If you thump or deeply massage these points, it will stimulate the energies of all the other meridians and get your body’s energy moving.

You will find these points right under the collarbone, near the U-shaped notch. Massage these points vigorously to bring fresh energy to your body. Remember this next time you’re feeling tired! Thump or deeply massage these points and you will soon feel the difference.

Kidney meridian front view

Please note: Although this diagram shows the pathway on only one side of the body for clarity purposes, in reality it runs on both sides of the body, right and left, in a pair. So if you’re massaging the K27, you’ll be massaging a set of two points (as in the picture below). The path of the Kidney meridian is marked in red colour.

Ancient Prints Showing Meridians

I find it fascinating to compare modern acupuncture/acupressure diagrams with ancient Chinese prints and paintings. Nowadays, we have devices that can detect meridians and their acupoints, and they are almost exactly the same as depicted ion the thousands’ of years-old medical illustrations. There are also people who can see energies, such as Donna Eden, who was born with this ability. She had seen meridian pathways even before she learned about them!

If Kidney Meridian is Out of Balance

In the traditional Chinese medicine, the emotion associated with Kidney meridian is fear.

When we experience a strong emotion of fright, our kidneys will struggle to hold their energy and we can even end up experiencing involuntary urination. (You’ve surely heard the phrase ‘I nearly peed myself’!)

Dealing with long-term fear can often result in kidney issues.

The other challenges associated with imbalance in the Kidney meridian are fear, edema, eye problems, tinnitus, lung problems, dry tongue, lumbago, constipation, diarrhoea, lower back pain during period, shoulder pain, and pain along the course of the meridian and its associated muscles.

However, working with the Kidney meridian and its acupressure points can often help you relieve pain and improve your health condition, and emerge from loneliness, depression, and fear.

Techniques for Balancing Kidney Meridian

If you suffer from any of the symptoms mentioned above, try the following techniques: 

  • Trace Kidney meridian
  • Flush Kidney meridian
  • Work with the acupressure points of Kidney meridian

Tracing Kidney Meridian

Tracing Kidney meridian will help you get your energy going and remove toxins out of your body.

Donna Eden’s daughter Dondi shows you how to trace Kidney meridian.

Flushing Kidney Meridian

How to flush a meridian:

  • Trace it backward once
  • Trace it forward three times

 

Working with the Acupressure Points of Kidney Meridian

There are three ways we can work with the acupressure points:

  • Sedate
  • Strengthen
  • Use the Three-Point Technique

Below I am showing diagrams that will teach you how to sedate or strengthen the Kidney meridian, according to your needs. If you are in pain, it usually means that there is too much accumulated energy in your Kidney meridian, so holding the sedating points of the Kidney meridian would be your choice. It will also help release toxins from the meridian.

Sedating Kidney Meridian

I have successfully used this technique to help a friend with strong lower back pain during her period. If you suffer from back pain (whatever the cause), or shoulder pain, do try this technique.

Step 1 – Sedate the Kidney Meridian:

Sedate (relax) the Kidney meridian by sending its excess energy to the next meridian, which is Liver. You’ll see how the flow works on the wheel diagram (The Five Elements Wheel) further down.

The Procedure:

Gently hold the following two points (Kidney 1 and Liver 1) for 2 – 3 minutes. Use the tips of your fingers (preferably the index or the middle finger).

Do this one side of the body first, (e.g. on your right foot).

Repeat the same procedure on the other side of the body (your left foot), also for 2 – 3 minutes.

Kidney 1 Acupressure Point
Liver 1 Acupressure Point

What Is Happening on The Five Elements Wheel:

Water element (Kidney meridian) flows into Wood element (Liver meridian).

This means that Kidney meridian is freed from excess energy by sending it to Liver meridian.

Or you can view it the other way – the helpful friend Liver is ‘hoovering’ excess energy from the overcharged Kidney meridian, this helping the Kidney meridian to relax. (This often diminishes pain in our body, like in the case of my friend with the back pain.)

You can see this happening on the wheel (from blue to green, inside the circle):

kidney to liver flow

Step 2 – Stabilise the Energy Flow by Holding the Control Points:

Now we need to stop the flow of energy from the previous point. We need to stabilize the shift in energy, and we’ll do this by holding the so-called control points.

The Procedure:

Gently hold the following two points (Kidney 3 and Spleen 3) for 1,5 minutes.

As in the previous step, do this on both sides of the body; on the right foot first, then on the left foot. (Or vice versa.)

Spleen 3 and Kidney 3 Acupressure Point

What is happening on The Five Elements Wheel:

Earth element (Spleen) controls Water element (Kidney).

This means that ‘good cop’ Spleen meridian will ‘stop’ the flow of energy from the previous step, thus preventing the Kidney meridian from having too much energy taken away. This wise intervention of the controlling element (Earth) will stabilise the energies.

You can see this happening on the wheel (from yellow to blue, inside the circle):

Spleen to kidney

Strengthening Kidney Meridian

Step 1 – Strengthen the Kidney Meridian 

Strengthen the Kidney meridian by borrowing some energy from the previous meridian (i.e. Lung meridian).

The Procedure:

Gently hold the following two points (Kidney 7 and Lung 8) for 2 – 3 minutes. Use the tips of your fingers (preferably the index or the middle finger).

Do this one side of the body first, (e.g. your right side) and then repeat the same procedure on the other side of the body, also for 2 – 3 minutes.

Kidney 7 Acupressure Point
Lung-8-Acupressure-Point

What Is Happening on The Five Elements Wheel:

Metal element (Lung) flows into Water element (Kidney).

This means that Lung meridian is strengthening the neighbouring Kidney meridian by sending its energy into it (flowing into it).

Or you can view it the other way – Kidney is ‘borrowing’ some energy from its neighbouring Lung meridian.

You can see this happening on the wheel (from light grey to blue, inside the circle):

Lung to Kidney

Step 2 – Stabilise the energy flow by holding the control points:

Gently hold the following two points (Kidney 3 and Spleen 3) for about 1,5 minutes.

As in the previous step, do this on both sides of the body.

Spleen 3 and Kidney 3 Acupressure Point

What Is Happening on The Five Elements Wheel:

Earth element (Spleen) controls Water element (Kidney).

You can see this happening on the wheel (from yellow to blue, inside the circle).

Spleen to kidney

You may have noticed that this is the same procedure as when we were holding the control points after the Sedating procedure in the first example. The control points are always the same after sedating and strengthening a meridian.

Three-Pointing Kidney Meridian

The Three Point Technique is a combination of sedating and strengthening a meridian in one session. Sometimes a meridian needs to be cleared of stale or toxic energies first in order to receive strengthening energies. This means that we sedate it first to move the old energies out, and then strengthen it. In the end, we use the control points to stabilise the shift.

We often use the Three-Point technique to treat hormonal imbalances, such as during PMS or menopause.

Step 1 – Sedate the Kidney Meridian:

Sedate (relax) the Kidney meridian by sending its excess energy to the next meridian, which is Liver. You’ll see how the flow works on the wheel diagram (The Five Elements Wheel) further down.

The Procedure:

Gently hold the following two points (Kidney 1 and Liver 1) for 2 minutes. Use the tips of your fingers (preferably the index or the middle finger).

Do this one side of the body first, (e.g. on your right foot).

Repeat the same procedure on the other side of the body (your left foot), also for 2 minutes.

Kidney 1 Acupressure Point
Liver 1 Acupressure Point

What Is Happening on The Five Elements Wheel:

Water element (Kidney meridian) flows into Wood element (Liver meridian).

This means that Kidney meridian is freed from excess energy by sending it to Liver meridian.

Or you can view it the other way – the helpful friend Liver is ‘hoovering’ excess energy from the overcharged Kidney meridian, this helping the Kidney meridian to relax. (This often diminishes pain in our body, like in the case of my friend with the back pain.)

You can see this happening on the wheel (from blue to green, inside the circle):

kidney to liver flow

Step 2 – Strengthen the Kidney Meridian 

Strengthen the Kidney meridian by borrowing some energy from the previous meridian (i.e. Lung meridian).

The Procedure:

Gently hold the following two points (Kidney 7 and Lung 8) for 2 minutes. Use the tips of your fingers (preferably the index or the middle finger).

Do this one side of the body first, (e.g. your right side) and then repeat the same procedure on the other side of the body, also for 2 minutes.

Kidney 7 Acupressure Point
Lung-8-Acupressure-Point

What Is Happening on The Five Elements Wheel:

Metal element (Lung) flows into Water element (Kidney).

This means that Lung meridian is strengthening the neighbouring Kidney meridian by sending its energy into it (flowing into it).

Or you can view it the other way – Kidney is ‘borrowing’ some energy from its neighbouring Lung meridian.

You can see this happening on the wheel (from light grey to blue, inside the circle):

Lung to Kidney

Step 3 – Stabilise the energy flow by holding the control points:

Now we need to stop the flow of energy from the previous two points. We need to stabilize the shift in energy, and we’ll do this by holding the control points.

The Procedure:

Gently hold the following two points (Kidney 3 and Spleen 3) for 1 minute.

As in the previous step, do this on both sides of the body; on the right foot first, then on the left foot. (Or vice versa.)

What Is Happening on The Five Elements Wheel:

Earth element (Spleen) controls Water element (Kidney).

You can see this happening on the wheel (from yellow to blue, inside the circle).
