Acupressure Points for Sleepiness, Drowsiness & Narcolepsy
Many people become sleepy at inappropriate times, like at school, while driving a car, or at work when you need to concentrate or you could loose your job. When you feel drowsy and need to be alert, acupressure along with Yogic breathing can stimulate your metabolism without drugs. My approach to counteract chronic fatigue and sleep disorders is holistic – using diet, exercise, breathing techniques and acupressure therapy.
One cause of narcolepsy and drowsiness is poor quality sleep. Acupressure points and techniques can enable you to actually Sleep Better. In this blog article I’ll give you essential details on how to use acupressure points with breathing techniques to balance your metabolism naturally.
Narcolepsy* & Drowsiness Acupressure Points Routine – use the following acupressure points and breathing techniques to balance your nervous system. You do not have to practice all six techniques; using one or two of them can be effective:

Daily Exercise especially aerobic exercise (20 minutes of lively dancing, swimming, running sports, and biking) is well known to help Narcolepsy. If these activities are difficult, a brisk walk once or twice a day can be very beneficial for counteracting drowsiness. Exercise or walking increases your body’s strength and improves your metabolism. Exercise releases hormones that promote overall energy and alertness.
