Acupressure Points for Relieving Shoulder Tension.

points. Using just one or two of them whenever
you have a free hand can be effective.
Points (A) -- Gates of Consciousness
Location: Below the base of the skull, in the
hollow between the two large vertical neck muscles,
two to three inches apart depending on the size
of the head.

and neck, headaches, and stiff neck.
Points (B) -- Shoulder Well
Caution: Pregnant women
should press lightly on this point.

of the shoulder, one to two inches out from
the side of the lower neck.
Benefits: Relieves shoulder tension, nervousness,
irritability, and fatigue.
Points (C) -- Heavenly Rejuvenation

base of the neck and the outside of the shoulders,

arm one-third of the way down from the top of
