Acupuncture and acupressure have been accepted by Western Medicine for pain relief. Here I’m introducing you to one of the most powerful acupressure points, he-gu (合谷), the 4th point on the Large Intestine meridian.
It is one of the four Command Points for the body. It influences the head, face and mouth. As such, it is beneficial for headache, toothache, eye pain, and gum pain.
When you massage it regularly, you’ll help reduce the chance of having those symptoms.
BTW, if the point is painful to massage, it means that there is energy congestion and it’s in need of massage.
If it’s not painful, you’ll want to dig around to find a spot that’s tender.
Let me know what you find by leaving me a comment below.
