Acupressure Points for Deep Sleep

Having trouble sleeping? Try these techniques from Steve Given, clinical faculty member at Bastyr Center for Natural Health, the teaching clinic of Bastyr University:

  • Between your eyebrows, there is a small depression on the level of your brows, right above the nose. Apply gentle pressure to that point for a minute.
  • Between your first and second toes, on top of the foot, there is a depression. Press that area for a few minutes until you feel a dull ache. 
  • Imagine that your foot has three sections, beginning at the tips of your toes and ending at the back of your heel. Find the distance one-third back from the tips of your toes and press on the sole of your foot for a few minutes. 
  • Massage both of your ears for a minute.
