In the past six months, we have come to know a lot about coronavirus, yet there are a lot of things we are still unaware of. Scientists around the globe are still trying to figure out the exact nature of the virus and ways to contain it. Every passing day we come to know something new about this deadly virus.
In such circumstances, prevention is the only way to keep oneself protected from getting infected. We know that COVID-19 is a respiratory disease, which is spread by tiny respiratory droplets. Apart from practising social distancing, wearing a mask and maintaining proper hygiene, it is important to take good care of your lung health at this time. For this, you can try acupressure.
Acupressure is based on the concept of life energy which flows through meridians in the body. It is believed that any blockage and disruption in the flow of energy through the median can lead to different health issues. The lung meridian is one of the major ones comprising of 12 meridian pathways in the human body.
Applying gentle pressure on these points can actually help to improve your lungs health and boost your immunity. Here are the three acupressure points that you should press regularly.
You will find the second point in your hand. Stretch your one hand with palms facing downwards. Press between the V shape formed between the web of the thumb and index finger.
The third point can be found on the fleshy pad of the palm between the wrist and the joint of the palm.
The first point is the hollow space under the collarbone. The point is located between the first and second rib. You can locate this point on both sides. Apply gentle pressure on these points.
Apply gentle pressure on these three points for 1 to 2 minutes daily twice or thrice. Hold the pressure points with your fingertips for 4-5 breaths and then release. Repeat the same 5 times in a row.
