While not a cure for allergies, Acupressure can be an effective method for relieving and preventing many symptoms from allergic reactions by balancing your body’s energy system.
Relieve Allergies using these two powerful acupressure points, LI 4 and Lv 3 on both sides called the Four Gates. These potent acupressure points open the flow of healing energy through the Large Intestine and Liver to subside allergies.
LI 4 is on the outside of the hand, on the highest spot of the muscle when the thumb and index fingers are brought close together. This anti-inflammatory point, in the webbing between the thumb and index finger, opens the Large Intestine meridian, and the energy that flows down the body. Strongly stimulating this point should be avoided if you might be pregnant.
Lv 3 is on the top of the foot, in the valley or webbing between the large toe and second toes. This powerful point balances the Liver meridian, all energy that flows up the body, and relieves all kinds of allergic reactions, especially bloodshot eyes and neuromuscular disorders.
For an Allergy, I suggest breathing deeply as you hold each of these points for 1 to 2 minutes each, alternating three times between holding each of these points, to discover the benefits next time you have an allergy. Use these same points in the same way to prevent an allergy from coming on, especially before entering a space or situation you know you may have trouble with later.
