Acupressure Points for Eye Strain


Eye strain at the computerRelieve eye strain with acupoints.

Tired or strained eyes can benefit from gentle massage to acupressure points (also know as acupoints or just points) located around the eyes.

Being gentle is critical! Acupoints around the eyes can be very sensitive, so only use gentle pressure for about 20 – 30 seconds on each point. Never create any pain with your pressure. Practice gentle, circular pressure to the points. Feel for a sensation of relief, and more energy in and around the eyes – that is when you are doing it “just right.”

Learn how to massage acupressure points to relieve eye strain:

When to massage these points

Think about preventing eye strain – massage these points before you read or work on the computer. If you notice any strain, pause and massage the points. Just a few minutes of massage can bring a lot of relief. Massage these points before going to bed to support the recovery of tired eyes while sleeping.

Practice and notice the effects. The more experience you have, the easier it is to know how long, how often, and how much pressure to use.

    I love your free webinars. I am an energy healer and caregiver. I expect to have the money soon to take your courses. I do several of those points every day with your phrase, abundant free flowing chi. some of them are the eft points I use. I had cataract surgery in both eyes and laser shots in both eyes later because I developed clumps in my eyes. I will do all of these points now. thank you so much!
