My name is Tanya Batts, and I'm with Physique Designs. Today, I want to talk to you about acupressure or pressure points on the body. Acupressure is a traditional Chinese method, which basically means you're applying pressure to certain points of the body to relieve certain symptoms. There are five. The first two I'm going to tell you about are in the back of the neck. So right here, you want to apply pressure. You want to hold it there for a few minutes. These pressure points are going to relieve stiff neck, tension, and swollen eyes. The next two are right here. Find your clavicle, and right behind it, you're going to apply pressure right into that muscle. That's going to relieve anxiety, stiff necks, tension in the shoulders. The next three, all are going to relieve anxiety. So you want to have your arm right here in the center of the elbow. That's going to help with nausea, anxiety, and wrist pain. Also, chest discomfort. The next one, right here above the ulna, not quite to the wrist. Apply pressure, hold for a few minutes, that's anxiety, tension. And the next one is the last one is right here on top of this little bone in the wrist -- on top of the trapezium. Really apply pressure, hold for a few minutes. That's going to help with anxiety, tension, fear, and forgetfulness. So those are some great pressure points from acupressure, that traditional Chinese method, that will help relieve any of those symptoms that you're having.
