Acupressure for Better Sleep: Conquer Insomnia Naturally

Are you tired of struggling with sleepless nights? If you’re looking for a natural way to improve your sleep quality and conquer insomnia, you’re in the right place. As Physiotherapists, we recognize the importance of sleep not only in healing but also in overall well-being. In this guide, we’ll walk you through a powerful acupressure routine that can help you achieve better sleep and say goodbye to those sleepless nights.

Why Sleep Matters:

Sleep is more than just rest – it’s a vital component of our health. Whether you’re recovering from injuries or preventing them, quality sleep plays a crucial role. Additionally, it boosts your energy and sharpens your focus for the challenges ahead.

Setting the Stage:

To get the most out of this routine, find a cozy spot to lie down. Throughout the practice, remember to breathe deeply in a rhythmic pattern: inhale for 4 seconds through your nose, hold for 4 seconds, and exhale for 4 seconds through pursed lips.

Acupressure Points Explained: Acupressure for Better Sleep

P6 Point –

P6 Point
Start by locating the P6 point. Use three fingers to measure just below your wrist crease. Your thumb goes below your pointer finger, and your thumb should be in the middle of your forearm. Gently press on this point for a minute on each wrist. Feel a slight soreness, and that’s your cue that it’s working.

H7 Point –

H7 Point
Move on to the H7 point. Imagine your hand saying “stop” and look at your pinky finger’s base. Press gently on the small hollow spot you find there. One minute on each hand is all it takes to soothe your way to sleep.

GV24.5 Point -

GV24.5 Point
Now, for GV24.5, trace an imaginary line from between your eyebrows up towards the top of your head. You’ll find a tiny dip on this line. Press gently for tranquility.

CV17 Point –

For CV17, use your fingers to measure down your breastbone, about three fingers’ width. In that spot, you’ll notice a small indentation. This is your calm zone. Press gently here, take deep breaths, and enjoy the serenity.

K6 and B62 Points –

K6 and B62 Points
These points come as a pair. Locate K6 between the Achilles tendon and ankle bone on the inside of your ankle. B62 rests between the outside ankle bone and Achilles tendon. Apply thumb and index finger pressure for one minute while breathing deeply.

There you have it – a comprehensive acupressure routine that’s like a lullaby for insomnia. You can cycle through this routine 2-3 times before bedtime. Embrace these techniques, and let us know how they work for you.
