Acupressure is a needle-free alternative to acupuncture and can be very effective. As published in Essentials on 1st December 2014, acupressure to the acupuncture point LI20 (this translates from Chinese to ‘welcome fragrance’) can help to unblock the nose and restore a sense of smell, which is very helpful at this time of year.
So to give it a try first find the acupuncture point LI20. This can be found at either side of the widest part of the nostril, where the smile lines run. Next press firmly or gently massage this location at both sides of the nose for a few minutes, and breath more easily! To read the original article click here and download the PDF.
