Administration [ Read me ]: To find the appropriate point, read the description and look at the diagram illustrating the location of the point, and then find the general area on your skin. Gently probe the area until you find that point which gives you a “funny bone” feeling or is sensitive, tender or sore. Then press hard enough to make the point hurt.
You can use a steady pressure or a five seconds on and five seconds off rotating pressure for the time you stimulate the point. Usually one minute is sufficient for each treatment session.
Regular, systematic treatment usually gets the best results because the effects of Acupressure are cumulative. At first, frequent treatment is recommended. Treatment three times daily for five to ten minutes may be necessary. Or treat more frequent, such as every two hours, until you start feeling relief. You cannot overdose.
Some report almost immediate results; others may need a few weeks to get lasting results. Acupressure is safe. Side effects are very rare. Treat while sitting down and do not administer after meals.
