The concept of Acupressure includes the flow of life energy through the “meridians” in your body. To do the Acupressure treatment, you need to apply physical pressure to the pressure points (particular areas of the body) to relieve the pain (problem). You can use hand elbow, finger, or various devices with soft edges to apply pressure.

Several studies have proved that you can relieve yourself from vomiting, nausea, lower back pain, stomach aches, headaches, and many more health problems.

The list does not end there, as you can lose weight through Acupressure techniques, too. That’s right! You can lose weight easily by applying pressure on the particular energy points on your body. It will boost your digestive system which will in turn aid in controlling your appetite. The Acupressure weight loss techniques should be practiced/followed on a daily basis for around 30 minutes to achieve best results.

P.S: I advise you to lightly massage the particular area both before and after applying pressure. Massages aid in improving the functionality of your digestive system and decreasing your food cravings, thus helping you lose weight for good.

By practicing the following acupressure techniques, the life energy will flow through the organs, mainly the spleen meridians and the abdomen.

Ear Point

This specific point in your ear aids in controlling your appetite. Just place your thumb against the jaw of the ear and move it up and down. While doing so, you will be able to find the point with maximum movement. Once you have found it, stop your finger there and press it for at least a minute.


Abdomen Point

Find this specific point in your abdomen region precisely 3cm down from the belly button. This particular point improves the function of your digestive system and reduces constipation, that is why it is one of the best acupressure points for losing weight.

All you need to do is to place two fingers on the point and massage it with up and down motion for at least one minute and then press it for another 2 minutes. Do this routine twice a day for better weight loss results.


Elbow Point

On the inner side of your elbow crease, you will find the large intestine point located towards the end. This acupressure point aids in stimulating the function of your intestine. It removes excess body heat and unwanted moisture present in your body.

Just press your thumb on this elbow point for at least one minute each day to achieve best results to lose weight.

Knee Point

This acupressure point boosts your digestion and helps your stomach to function smooth. Find the knee point on the outer side of each of your legs just 5cm below the knee cap.

Apply the pressure using your forefinger for at least one minute. After the minute was over, with your finger on the particular pressure point, move your foot up and down and you will feel the movement of your muscle. By staying in that position, press the particular point for another two minutes.


Ankle Point

This acupressure point is meant for the spleen, but it also aids in strengthening your digestive system. Find this ankle point just 5cm above your ankle, on the inner of each of your leg. By pressing this particular point regularly, you can boost the function of your digestive system. Press it for at least one minute each day to lose weight efficiently.
