Large Intestine 20 (LI 20) is a reliable point for opening the sinuses and nasal passages.
This is a point that’s easy to locate, and easy to use on yourself and others. Let’s hear a little applause for LI 20!
How to locate LI 20
Feel the edge of your nostrils right where they meet the skin of your face. Gently angle pressure between the side of your nostrils and your face, as you feel for a little dip in the tissue. Being gentle is the key here!
LI 20 can be pretty sensitive, so go slowly. You know you are on the point when you feel that little dip. Perhaps there will be a sensation of “Oh, that’s the point” – which is preferable to “Ouch! That’s the point!!”
