Acupressure points are meridian energy points that correlate to a particular organ. Any obstruction in the energy flow causes illnesses and diseases to occur. In this case, it’s the eyes! Acupressure points around the eyes are particularly beneficial for eye-related problems. By applying pressure around these acupressure points, we can relieve pain and eye ailments by relaxing the eye muscles and increasing the flow of blood to the eye area.

In this article, we will be looking at the eye acupressure points, and how stimulating these points can enhance better eye health.

Aside from knowing the acupressure points are located, it is also crucial to use the proper technique to administer the massage. Firm pressure should be used in a circular motion for the acupressure massage to work, but not hard enough to cause pain. After that, you should aim to hold the acupressure point for 10 seconds, before releasing and pausing for the same amount of time. This process can be repeated on the same acupressure point 5-10 times, depending on the severity of the eye condition. Above all, remember to take deep breaths and breathe!

By doing these acupressure self-massage techniques, most people can improve and even maintain good eyesight until they are well into their golden years.
