The following are effective acupressure points to stimulate your immune system. Unlike in the previous posting, these are located on the legs/feet. Use these frequently.
Acupressure’s Potent Points by Michael Reed Gach
Bigger Rushing(Lv 3):
You can find this point on the top of your foot between the big toe and your second toe.
Press firmly on this point for a full minute on one foot then change feet.
Benefits: This point boosts the immune system but, in addition, it can be used to relieve headaches, eye fatigue, hangovers and fainting.
This point is located midway between the inside of the anklebone and the Achilles tendon at the back of the ankle.
Press firmly on this point on one leg for a full minute. Switch legs and pressure firmly on the other ankle for the same amount of time.
Benefits: This pressure point also strengthens the immune system while relieving fatigue, swollen feet, and ankle pain.
Don’t forget to drink water at the end of your exercise session or any time you begin to feel thirsty. A Word of Caution…If you have or have had problems with your kidneys, please consult your physician.
