Acupressure Points for Better Eyesight

If your eyes do not have perfect eyesight and are often strained, there is a holistic and simple technique to help your eyes become healthier again. Acupressure is an ancient therapy that involves the flowing of energy in your body. When obstructions in your meridians (certain points in your body where energy flows) happen, these sections can feel painful and cause illnesses. Acupressure has been used for centuries to treat eyesight problems such as myopia or shortsightedness, cataracts, presbyopia, hypermetropia, color blindness, astigmatism, cataract and amblyopia. According to the ancient Chinese philosophy, the eye is actually connected to other parts of the body such as the liver, neck and the toes.

There are different tips for acupressure for your eyesight. First, start with massaging around the eyes. Start with the inner edge and use your middle finger to massage the point adjacent to the bridge of your nose using small, circular movements. Do this for about three minutes. Then move to the point that is below the center of the eye for several minutes and then massage the point between your eyebrows. Don’t apply any pressure on your eye while massaging around the eye.

Next, massage around your nostrils. Massaging around your nostrils can help ease recurring headaches and improve your vision long term. Start by putting your index fingers on either side of your nostrils and start massaging slowly. It will also help clear nasal congestion and sinus pain. Repeat daily for five minutes.

Then, massage the bridge of your nose. Massage on either side of your nose for five minutes to reduce redness or strain of the eyes. Then massage the center of your forehead.

Lastly, massage your fingers and toes for eyesight. The ancient Chinese believe there is a connection. Bring your hands together at the tips and rub them together gently and massage your toes by holding each of them between your index finger and thumb and massage individually. It will increase blood circulation all over, which in turn helps your eyesight.

You can also visit an acupressure specialist and tell them you’d like to improve your eyesight or get rid of eye pain.
