Acupressure points for Thanksgiving to control appetite, acid reflux and heartburn
Today I’m going to share some acupressure points that are useful for Thanksgiving. The first set is to control appetite. The second set is for indigestion such as stomachache, acid reflux and heartburn.
To control appetite – press these points 20-30 min before the meal. Press these points for one minute as you breathe deeply.
• Triple Warmer 17 (TW 17) – Soft spot behind the earlobe
• Cartilage in front of the ear – pinch the depression with thumb and index finger
For indigestion – Do not press these points when you are too full because you may make it worse. Wait at least 30 min after you eat. Press these points gently as you breathe out.
• Central Vessel 6 (CV 6) – Two finger widths below the belly button. Good for stomachache and bloatedness.
• Central Vessel 12 (CV 12) – Half way between the base of the sternum and navel. Good for acid reflux and heartburn.
Bonus point: If you need to get out of Turkey food coma, press the point under the nose (1/3 from the nose towards the upper lip on the philtrum) to wake yourself up.
Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
