Look For This Pressure Point To Lower Your High Blood Pressure
Traditional Chinese Medicine says our bodies have meridians where qi (energy) flows. Needles or pressure can stimulate blocked meridians to alleviate certain conditions.
The Taichong or Liver 3 is an acupoint along the liver meridian. Per Clinical Epidemiology and Global Health, applying pressure to the Taichong can help lower blood pressure.
The acupoint is on the top of your foot between the bones of your big toe and second toe. Researchers suggest pressing it daily for up to four weeks to lower your blood pressure.
Press the divot between the two toes for five seconds and release for one second. Repeat 30 times for a total of three minutes per session.
