Acupressure Points for Arthritis – Massage Monday #316

Hi everyone, this is Yasuko and it’s time
for Massage Monday. This week I’m going to show some acupressure
points for arthritis. The first set of points are on the fingertips. On the thumb, index finger, and middle finger
they are located on the lower inner corner of the nail bed. On the ring finger it’s located on the lower
outer corner of the nail bed. On the pinky finger they are on both sides
of the lower corners the nail bed. To be exact it’s where the vertical edge line
and the horizontal edge line meets. But to make it easier just pinch both sides
of the lower corners of each finger nail and stimulate with your fingertips or fingernail. Do it on both hands. There are different opinions about the point
for the middle finger. Some people say the point is actually located
on the tip of the middle finger instead of lower inner corner of the nail bed. So to cover that theory, you can also stimulate
the top of the middle finger. Another set of points are near the wrist. The first one is called Triple Warmer 5 and
it’s located two thumb widths from the outer wrist crease. The other one is called Pericardium 6 and
it’s two thumb widths from the inner wrist crease between the two tendons You can press these points at the same time
and hold if for one minute as you breathe deeply. Thanks for watching. I’ll see you back next week. Make it a great week. Feel free to comment below and please don’t

    Hi Yasuko. I just want you to know that your massage techniques are the REAL DEAL. THEY ABSOLUTELY WORK!!!! I used these particular acupressure techniques on myself and my mom — who has really bad arthritis in her hands. She (as I) was absolutely amazed that such simple techniques worked so well. Of all my YouTube subscriptions, I watch — and — practice your videos the most. Keep 'em coming!!!

    is it the same for psoriatic arthritis also ?

    I'm taking online accupressure and have had to do additional research because explaining where the points are has been impossible for most sources and my teacher is awful at it. I think it should be accurately described as making a mistake is both dangerous and a waste of time. Your video is EXCELLENT. Thank you for excellence. I will subscribe, like, follow, and recommend.
