Acupressure Massages to treat winter diseases in Vence

With winter, some diseases can come back. If you’re experiencing dry and itchy throat, irritable eyes or running nose, these are some acupressure points you can massage yourself to help you relieve those discomforts!

Eye Discomfort
You can massage 3 acupressure points to reduce this discomfort.

With clean hands, massage in a circular motion for 6 times, the point located between the eyes, at the front end of the eyebrows.

Massage in a circular motion 6 times, at the tender depression at the temple area, one inch away from the point between the end of your eyebrow and corner of your eye.


Close your eyes and do an upper and lower orbital massage for both eyes 6 times.

Upper Orbital Massage: With your thumb on your temple, use the pads of your index finger to massage the area starting from the inside corner of each socket and press slowly in circular motions, towards the outer edge of the eyelids.

Lower Orbital Massage: With your thumb on your temple, use the pads of your index finger to massage the area starting from the inside corner of each socket and press slowly in circular motions, towards the outer corner of the eye.

Runny Nose
If you have a runny nose or feel like your sinusitis is acting up, repeat both steps below 2 to 3 times.

Beside the wing of the nose, at the meeting point with the nasolabial line, massage on the point for 1 minute.

Then massage both sides of the nose wing in an up-down motion for 10 times.

Rub and massage both ear lobes until they turn warm (around 30 seconds).

Then gently massage along the area, in an up-down motion from below the ear to the collar bone 3 times.

Massage one side at a time!

Dry/Itchy Throat

Spread the thumb and index finger of both hands, crossing them so that the index finger of one hand comes to rest on the styloid process of the other.

Gently massage on the point for 30 seconds.

On the neck in the depression above the upper border of the hyoid bone, gently massage on the point for 30 seconds.

Of course, consult your doctor for any diseases.
