Acupressure point of the day! 📍Pericardium 6 (PC 6)
The pericardium channel is often used in the treatment of emotional health. Its job is to encase and protect the heart ❤️. PC 6 is used in most of my point prescriptions because most of us can really use its benefits!
It's a nifty little point that packs a HUGE punch 👊. It calms the mind, relieves stomach aches & nausea (can be used during pregnancy), and opens the chest.
You can find it 3 finger widths from the wrist crease (put your three middle fingers together to measure), in between the two tendons in the center of the forearm.
If you're experiencing stress, anxiety, insomnia, overthinking, nausea, vomiting, or chest tightness, press on this point with moderate pressure while taking 10 deep breaths. Don't forget to repeat on the other side.
Ever wonder how those anti-nausea bracelets work? This is how! They press on this point 🤯. I practice this often, sometimes daily.. no shame in my game! I hope it works for you too!
