HOW to stay SANE and CALM in a crazy World, cont. Acupressure for Sciatica and Lower Back Pain

Here are some Acupressure points that can help if you feel tense and have a sore or tight back. You can choose which one suits best and hold it, usually the pressure is light unless I stated otherwise, hold for 1-3 minutes, you may feel a pulse in your finger or if you prefer you can just massage the point slowly.

Acupressure is part of the Traditional Chinese Medicine and just like Acupuncture works on different Meridians to free up blocked energy bringing health and balance back into the body. As acupressure is lighter it is advised to treat the points several times during the day
