Acupressure points for reduction of muscular Tension

Apply deep, probing pressure with fingertip, knuckle or soft-pointed object, such as a pencil eraser.

Muscular tension can arise from either physical or emotional circumstances. In addition to this acupressure point, you may want to try points for treating some of the underlying causes, such as anxiety, depression or other emotional disturbance, exhaustion, fatigue, fear, freaking out, hunger, insomnia, nervousness, restlessness, or withdrawl. Or try acupressure points for the most common areas where the tension is felt, such as the head, headache, neck, shoulders or back.

If you have not found relief, try the same points on the opposite side of the body, or go back and try a related or similar symptom or body area. If you have not used acupressure before, please see the Instructions, then click the "Body Area" or "A-Z" tab and repeat.
