Acupressure Points for Relieving Lower Back Aches.
Working on these points can help you get better
quicker. You do not have to use all of these
points. Using just one or two of them whenever
you have a free hand can be effective.
Points (A) -- Sea of Energy
Location: Two finger widths directly below the
belly button. Benefits: Relieves lower-back
weakness, tones weak abdominal muscles, and
prevents a variety of lower-back problems.
Points (B) & Points (C) -- Sea of Vitality
Caution: If you have a
weak back, the Sea of Vitality points may be
quite tender. In this case a few minutes of
light, stationary touch instead of deep pressure
can be very healing.
Location: In the lower back (between the second
and third lumbar vertebrae) two to four finger
widths away from the spine at waist level. Benefits:
Relieves lower-back aches, sciatica, and the
fatigue that often results from the pain.
Points (D) -- Womb and Vitals
Location: One to two finger widths outside the
sacrum (the large bony area at the base of the
spine) and midway between the top of the hipbone
and the base of the buttock. Benefits: Relieves
lower-back aches, sciatica, pelvic tension,
hip pain, and tension.
Points (E) -- Commanding Middle
Location: In the center of the back of the knee
crease. Benefits: Relieves back pain; sciatica;
knee pain; back stiffness; and arthritis in
the knees, back, and hips.
