Be sure to see a doctor if the fever is too high or goes on too long. It’s fine to combine the natural healing of Acupressure and more conventional medical care.
Acupressure to Reduce a High Fever
To Help Someone Else
Use one hand above the tip of the shoulder blade (TW 15), while your other hand holds each finger at the base of the nail for a minute each.
Three Techniques Using Self-Acupressure
ONE, curve your fingers like the rounded shape of the top of a coat hanger. Place them on the back of your opposite shoulder. Rub the area until you feel the top tip of your shoulder blade. Apply firm pressure just above that, where it feels knotted or tight.
This Triple Warmer point (TW 15) balances temperature in the body, so it’s good for fever as well as chills. Hold this point on both sides for about three minutes each, and breathe deeply.
TWO, use tennis balls to press the TW 15 point. Lie on your back and place them under the points, so that you can relax into the pressure for about three minutes.
THREE, press the Acupressure points at the base of your fingernails. Use your index fingertip and thumb to squeeze both sides of the base of each nail on the other hand. You can start or end with your thumb, since the order of holding each fingertip does not matter.
Pressing these points at the base of the nail stimulates the digital nerves and meridians and takes down pain as well as fever.
