Five acupressure points for Summer in Cannes
Here are five acupressure points that can be helpful in addressing common issues associated with summer:
1. LI11 (Large Intestine 11) – This acupressure point is located on the outer edge of the elbow crease. It can help relieve heat and promote sweating, making it helpful for treating heatstroke or overheating during summer.
2. GV14 (Governing Vessel 14) – This point is located on the upper part of the back, below the seventh cervical vertebra. Stimulating this point can help regulate the body’s temperature, making it helpful in treating heat exhaustion or other heat-related issues.
3. ST36 (Stomach 36) – This acupressure point is located on the lower leg, about four finger-widths below the knee. Stimulating this point can help boost energy, relieve fatigue, and promote overall well-being, making it useful during the hot and humid summer months.
4. SP6 (Spleen 6) – This point is located on the inner leg, about three finger-widths above the ankle. Stimulating this point can help improve digestion, reduce bloating, and alleviate water retention, all of which can be helpful during summer when people tend to consume more cooling foods and drinks.
5. UB67 (Urinary Bladder 67) – This acupressure point is located on the outer edge of the little toe. Stimulating this point can help reduce heat and promote relaxation, making it useful in treating insomnia, anxiety, or other emotional imbalances that may be aggravated during the hot summer months.
It’s important to note that acupressure should not be used as a substitute for medical treatment, and if you have any underlying health conditions or concerns, you should consult with a healthcare professional before trying acupressure.
