Per viewer’s request this week I’m going to show you some acupressure points for fatty liver.
期門 Liver 14 (LV 14) – The first one is called Liver 14. It’s located where the nipple line meets the edge of the rib. There are points on both sides but just press the right side for a liver function. I like to use my middle finger supported by the index and ring fingers and bend forward a little bit.
太衝 Liver 3 (LV 3) – The second one is called Liver 3. It’s at the end of the valley between the big toe and the second toe. You will feel a very distinct sensation. You can press or make short strokes with your fingertips. If it’s hard to reach, use a tool such as back of the pencil with the eraser. You can also press with your heel. If your toe is flexible enough you can also press it with a hooked big toe. Repeat on the other side.
曲泉 Liver 8 (LV 8) – The next one is called Liver 8 and it’s at the end of the crease on the inside when you bend your knee. Press this point with a hooked thumb. Repeat on the other side.
Press these points for one minute as you breathe deeply.
Just so you know, these acupressure points will not get rid of fat in the liver right away like magic buttons. The best thing you can do for your fatty liver is to lose weight. You should use these points in conjunction with exercise and change in diet.
