Acupressure Points For Stress + Anxiety Relief

To do this, we recommend starting with the point at the top of your head, and ending with on the feet for a grounding treatment. You can press the point on each side of the body to feel which one is more tender/sensitive. If you notice a difference, spend more time on the tender side. If you’re still feeling unsettled, press into the bottom of your feet, which your thumb or a tennis ball, to anchor that energy.

When locating points, feel for a tender spot or a place when your finger seems to dip slightly. Most acupuncture points are noticeable once you find them! Spend 30 seconds on each point with firm pressure, while taking nice deep breaths into your abdomen.
