Balanced Acupressure

I was at a talk on acupressure today. The audience provided a list of symptoms. The doctor showed us which acupressure points were useful to relieve these symptoms. I noticed subtle differences in my energy as I tried out various points.

PC6 is a point three finger widths from the wrist line. It’s supposed to relieve nausea.

Feeling fine in every way, I pressed PC6 on my left arm. Oddly, I suddenly became very nauseous! I asked the doctor, what do I do now? He asked if I tried pressing the same point on my right arm. I hadn’t. I was concerned I’d make the nausea worse, but gave it a try. Sure enough, within about 30 seconds of pressing the opposite arm, the nausea disappeared altogether.

I found this result very interesting and important to share with anyone starting to experiment with acupressure. If you’re not quite getting the intended result, make sure you apply acupressure equally to both sides of the body for overall balance!
