To promote weight loss, press the following 4 points:
This point is situated right between the nose and upper lip. Massaging this point on your face for 5 minutes, twice a day can help you control hunger and anxiety. If you overeat when stressed, then this method is perfect for you!
Massaging ear point will speed up your metabolism, which can contribute to faster weight loss in all parts of the body. You need to apply a gentle massage, continuously pressing it with your thumb. Repeat this three times a day.
This is the crucial point of the body, because every part of your internal energy goes through it. By massaging this point, you are releasing the body of excess body heat and stimulating the function of your intestines. You need to massage this point 2-3 times daily for one minute.
This point is called Zu San Li, and is most commonly used in acupressure. It can improve digestion and prevent inflammatory processes in the body. This point is also called “the point of longevity”, or “the point of a hundred diseases”. It is located under the knee cup.
This is how to locate it: Cover the knee with your palm, if you chose your left leg, use your left hand, and the other way around. The point is located between the end of the little and ring finger in the shape of lower recess between the bones.
Massage this point regularly in the evening to help you lose a pound each week. You should massage this point by making clockwise 9 motions (each leg for 5 minutes).
Don’t do this right before bed, because it can cause insomnia. During the pressure you might experience mild discomfort, even pain. That is a sign that the massage works, otherwise it will not reach the desired result.
