Acupressure Points for Sore Throat – Massage Monday #297

September 8, 2019

Hi everyone, this is Yasuko and it’s time
for Massage Monday. This week I’m going to show acupressure points for sore throat. For the first set of points, first find your
Adam’s apple. From the top edge of the Adam’s apple go horizontally to the neck muscle called
Sternocleidomastoid. The first point is in front of the Sternocleidomastoid. This is
called Stomach 9 or ST 9. You will feel the pulse here.
The second point is on the other side of the Sternocleidomastoid. This is called Small
Intestine 16 or SI 16. Gently press these points for one minute as you breathe deeply. For the next set of points, find your Adam’s
apple again. From the bottom edge of the Adam’s apple go horizontally to Sternocleidomastoid
again. The third point is in front of the same neck muscle. This is called Stomach 10
or ST 10. The fourth point is on the other side of the Sternocleidomastoid. This is called
Large Intestine 17 or LI 17. Again gently press these points for one minute as you breathe
deeply. When you press these points do it one side
at a time because when you do both sides at the same time you will be choking yourself
and you will feel your head and face swelling up. The next one is right above the sternum in
the middle. This is called Conception Vessel 22 or CV 22. Slightly hook your finger and
press this point in and slightly downward instead of straight in to choke yourself. The last one is in the depression between
the two heads of Sternocleidomastoid right above the collar bone. These are called Stomach
11 or ST 11. You can press these points on both sides at the same time. Press these points for one minute as you breathe
deeply. Be careful not to press too hard since this is a delicate area. Thanks for watching. I’ll see you back next
week. Make it a great week and please don’t forget to subscribe.

    I think it works well if you are vegetarian, my friend also had same problem and he is non vegetarian with me mine was cured and I only did this exercise for like 5 minutes and he tried 3 times a day and he cured in 2 days ,while I cured it in 1day
    I'm not promoting vegetarianism ,Its just experience and he was non vegetarian

    I never knew much about acupressure, but these really helped me, thank you so much! (also your video for coughing). My cold symptoms are so mild now!! I will be more open minded from now on! I'm a singer so i get really stressed when I have a sore throat so this helps me also to just relax about it

  • Reply ReviewOrcsUSA #GIMME200SEPTIMS November 17, 2018 at 12:59 pm

    I didn't expect this to work at all, but I tried it and sure enough it works great. It definitely wasn't placebo effect.
    PS: if it doesn't work for you then it proves you have either no chi & you're an NPC or you have something much worse than a sore throat

    Had a sore throat that was getting progressively worse that made it extremely difficult and painful to eat and drink. Didn’t work immediately for me, but I woke up the next day and my sore throat was 90% gone! It really works y’all! Thanks so much! Do you have any videos on how to relieve migraines with acupressure?
