Rescue Points Using Acupressure Techniques: Kidney-1
This topic is about Rescue Points Using Acupressure Techniques to relieve excessive medical symptoms, either acute or chronic. You might be on medications to relieve your migraine, insomnia and more. There is no worry thinking that this might interfere your treatment. Acupressure is very safe, effective, natural, painless, and has no side effects. You just need to continue that medication as prescribed by your doctor and supplement it using this technique that might help you relieve the nagging problem.
Acupressure is complementary to using medications, so you do not need to worry about drug interactions. It does not carry any harm if you use it. In fact, once you started to do this often, your symptoms will continue to decrease?until you are symptom-free in due time.
What I will be posting here starting today will be more about acupressure discussions to relieve many symptoms that medications might have failed to relieve or cure your chronic or acute condition. If you need acupuncture, you have to visit a licensed acupuncturist.
What I will be discussing here today is all about only one acupressure point, Kidney-1. But this is to remind you that acupressure is not meant to treat and cure any medical condition in lieu of a doctor’s advice. If you think you have an illness that is likely to be potentially dangerous to your health, please seek and consult a medical doctor for further treatment.
Your Kidney-1 Point Can Heal, What is That?
You might be confused about what I am talking here. Sounds very unfamiliar term, right? Well, this is just a term used by acupuncturist to identify a specific point in a channel called Kidney meridian.
Here is a picture where to look for that point. At the bottom of your foot. This is Kidney-1 point.
How to Locate This Point:?KIDNEY-1 or KI-1 (Jing – Well Point or Yongquan)
This is a very easy access point. The easiest way and position to do this is while you are sitting. Bring your foot up to your thigh. Rest the foot on your thigh with the sole facing up. Then use your thumb or index finger, or whatever finger is comfortable for you to use in manipulating this point.
- Start at the middle of the sole of your foot.
- Run the finger up going towards the toes.
- Continue upwards until it will stop (like you feel the bones prevent?your finger from going up no more).
- The point is a depression when the foot is in plantar flexion.
- Mark this point. This is KIDNEY-1. See picture above.
- Use massage oil or any body oil you already have.
- Press deeply and massage until you feel a sensation – any form of feeling including tenderness, tingling, spreading numbness, or anything!
- Press for 3-5 minutes. Alternate fingers if your fingers felt tired.
- Do the other foot and repeat the process as above.
- Rest and drink a glass of room temp or warm water. This helps the kidney replenish fluids and filter out toxins away from the system.
How Does Kidney-1 Point Help You?
Kidney -1 point is the lowest point in the bottom of your foot. In Chinese medicine, this point is a rescue point for several conditions affecting the head, symptoms that are considered an excess of yin and yang.
What are these symptoms that we consider excessive?
Many of us men, women, and sometimes children are affected with symptoms like severe headaches, dizziness, visual symptoms like decreased visual acuity, insomnia, vertigo, eye redness and eye pain, and more. We will be talking only about medical symptoms affecting the head in a relationship to the foot to relieve symptoms. This is how kidney point-1 is related to these symptoms.
Kidney-1 pulls down excess energy concentrating in the head and distributes it to the lower part of the body thereby relieving the symptom.
Medical Symptoms Relieved by Kidney-1 Point
- Infantile convulsion
- Loss of consciousness
- Hypertension (feeling the neck tighten associated with a severe headache,?dizziness, and vomiting). A probable sign of an impending stroke. If?more symptoms are felt, this could mean an emergency medical situation. Note if this is also associated with numbness of an arm, complaining of chest pain, upper back pain, or abdominal pain. Bring the person the ER immediately.?
- Eye pain, pain around both eyes, and blurring of vision
- Migraine headache
- Vertigo, dizziness
- Sore throat
- Dryness of the tongue
How Effective is this Technique?
This technique is effective if you do the acupressure at the right time. At the very start of a symptom, do it as soon as you can. If you have a migraine and the aura is about to come, you know that a severe headache will follow. So the techniques here is to do acupressure before a headache gets too much to deal with. If somebody is beside you, it is better and more effective if you ask the other person to do it for you.
As for children, make sure the pressure you apply is not too deep. This is a sensitive area and children might cry, kick, or fight with you. Make it gentle, but deep enough not to produce pain.
Try this and see how it will affect your life. Rescue points using acupressure techniques are very effective if done correctly as discussed above.
