Acupressure Points for Moving Qi in Waukesha

Chiropractic Waukesha WI Yoga

When your qi functions smoothly so does your emotional, mental, and physical activity. For optimum health, move your qi!

Stretch - Incorporate a morning stretch into your routine. According to Oriental medicine, the liver meridian stores blood during periods of rest and then releases it to the tendons in times of activity, helping to maintain tendon health and flexibility.

Eye Exercises - The liver meridian responsible for smoothing emotions is connected to eye function. Take breaks when looking at a monitor for extended periods of time and do eye exercises.

Eat Green - Eating young plants--fresh, leafy greens, sprouts, and immature cereal grasses--can improve overall function and aid in the movement of qi.

Do More Outdoor Activities - Outside air helps qi flow. If you have been feeling irritable, find an outdoor activity to smooth your emotions.


Four Gates
The four acupuncture points He Gu and Tai Chong are a popular treatment for stress, anger, irritability, sadness, and frustration. They are thought to enhance circulation of qi and have a calming analgesic effect.

He Gu is located on the padded area of your hand, between the thumb and index finger, between the first and second metacarpal bones. Massage this point with your thumb on both hands for about 30 seconds.

Tai chong is located in a hollow on the top of your foot below the gap between your big toe and the next toe, between the 1st and 2nd metatarsal bones. To stimulate this point, place your right heel in the juncture between the bones that attach to the large and second toes and gently knead the point for approximately thirty seconds. Then switch sides to stimulate the point on the other foot.

Hundred Convergences
Located on the top of the head midway between the ears Baihui is used to clear the mind, calm the spirit, and improve focus. Stimulate this point with your index finger for 30-45 seconds.

Hall of Impression
Stimulation of this point is known to calm the mind, enhance the ability to focus, soothe emotions, promote sleep, and relieve depression. Located midway between the eyebrows Yintang is sometimes referred to as "the third eye"
