This five point acupressure circuit will help your body to balance duality or yin yang energies in your system.
This circuit comes from the book Five Point Touch Therapy by Pierre-Noël Delatte, MD.
Five Point Technique Application
The purpose of the technique is to stimulate all five acupressure points through touch, so that you are aware of them all at the same time once you've completed the circuit.
On the first application, press each spot firmly, but not painfully, for about five seconds before moving to the next.
Don't be afraid to re-stimulate a spot that you do not feel afterwards.
Once all five spots are similarly sensitive and you're aware of them, cycle through the entire circuit three times, stopping for a second or two at each acupressure spot. Remember you're aiming to feel all five points activated at the same time.
Five Point Circuit for Restoring the Yin Yang Balance
Point 1: Spleen 4 (Right)
- On the medial side of the right foot, in the depression distal and inferior to the base of the first metatarsal bone, at the junction of light and dark skin.
- Follow the curve of the inner side of your right foot and you will feel a little depression at the top of the curve.
- This depression corresponds to the base of the first metatarsal bone and is rather tender, so please be careful.
Point 2: Spleen 10 (Left)
- On the inner left thigh, five centimeters above the inferior extremity of the femur.
- On the inside of your left knee, feel the big bony protuberance at the lower end of your thigh bone. Proceed upward along your thigh for about five centimeters, then press deeply. You can’t get it wrong, as this point is very sensitive most of the time.
- If you are working on someone else, ask her to stretch her left leg and place your right hand on her right kneecap; the acupressure point will be right under your thumb.
Point 3: Large Intestine 4 (Right)
- Between the first and second metacarpals of your right hand, on the radial aspect of the middle of the second metacarpal bone, at the highest spot of the muscle when the thumb and index fingers are brought close together.
- Look at the back of your right hand. Separate the thumb from your index finger and place your left thumb into the angle shown in the picture above, at the point of the "V" formed by the first two metacarpal bones (the bones at the base of the thumb and index finger). Exert pressure and you'll feel a tender spot in that area.
Point 4: Stomach 36 (Right)
- At the crest and to the external side of the right tibia, just below the kneecap.
- Place the palm of your right hand on your right kneecap while stretching your right leg out.
- Center your hand so that your middle finger lies along the middle axis of the tibia, the large bone.
- Move your ring finger a little to the right hand side, so that it slips into the little depression right next to top of the tibia, where the main bulbous end is.
- This spot is sensitive, so feel around a little on the bone until you find the sensitive spot.
- There is a slight depression between the two leg bones at this point, which may be easier to activate if you use your thumb to press and activate the point.
Point 5: Urinary Bladder 67 (Right)
- Lateral aspect of the little right toe, 0.1cm proximal to the corner of the nail.
- To locate this point, firmly hold your little toe between the thumb and index finger of your right hand, placing your thumb on the top of the little toe, at the corner of the nail and pressing firmly.
- This point is not particularly sensitive.
