Acupuncture is an ancient healing modality with powerful properties for our mind and body. We have over 300 acupuncture points throughout our body which are all connected to our nervous system. In this way, we can treat certain symptoms and conditions associated with stress, anxiety, depression and insomnia, whether they’re from internal or external sources.
The following points, when activated together, are known as “Buddha’s Triangle”. You can treat yourself at home by activating each point together using ‘Press Acupuncture Needle Stickers’ or essential oils which are non-invasive (rub 1 drop onto each point).
Lung 9Found in the crease of the wrist where the radial artery pulsates is where you’ll find this point. Lu9 opens up any blockages throughout the entire lung meridian - making it easier to breath, reduce phlegm, and eliminate asthmatic conditions. Lu9 will also alleviate any feelings of overall sadness, depression, and heaviness of the heart as our lungs are directly associated with grief and sadness.
Heart 7HT7 is found in the wrist crease on your pinky side between the same two tendons. It is the source point of the heart meridian, helping to relieve excessive anxiety and worry, sadness, fear and grief.
You'll find PC6 on the pinky side roughly 1.5” above the wrist crease between the two tendons you feel. PC6 opens the chest, protects the heart, calms the spirit, relieves nausea and vomiting, helps treat insomnia, melancholiness and repressed emotions.
