Relief from G-Jo Acupressure

How to Relieve a Headache with G-Jo Acupressure

Find G-Jo point number 13 by placing the right hand so the palm faces the floor.  Squeeze your thumb tightly against your pointer finger so a fleshy mound pops up on the back of the right hand between them.  Place the tip- not the pad or fleshy part- of the left thumb (or if you have a long thumb nail, use the bent knuckle of the index finger or even the eraser tip of a pencil) on top of that mound.  Keeping the left thumb tip in place, relax the right hand…begin pressing deeply in that area until you feel a tender “ouch” point.  The more it hurts, the better it is likely to be for your kind of headache.

Now trigger the point deeply, in a digging or goading fingertip massage.  Do this for 15 or 20 seconds on the right hand, then stop and duplicate the process on the back of the left hand.
(Conversely, if the point doesn’t hurt, it may either mean you’re not probing and massaging deeply enough- use enough pressure to make you wince a bit with discomfort- or it could mean that this is not the best point for your type of headache.)

How to Relieve a Backache with G-Jo-Acupressure

Use G-Jo point number 5.  First seat yourself in a comfortable chair, then reach down behind the bony bulge of the outer right ankle, using the tip of your right thumb.  Press deeply in the soft hollow or depression located between that bony bulge and the Achilles tendon- the hamstring tendon that runs up the back of the foot and leg.

Press deeply, until you feel the tender point- that’s absolutely crucial.  Once located, trigger the spot in the deep, digging or goading kind of G-Jo Acupressure massage.
Then reach for the identical point behind the left, outer ankle.  Again, find and trigger that point. 

Finally, test your back gently.  If the pain is eased but not quite gone, simply trigger the same acupoints for another few seconds and test again.
There are certain phenomena- called “acupressure reaction”- that generally accompany proper stimulation.  When these occur it’s often a good indication that this is the right point to restimulate if the target symptom returns.
For example, you’ll often notice a slight flush of perspiration form across your brow or shoulders,  Or you could feel warmth or clamminess in any part of the body.  These are normal reactions.

A profound sense of relief often happens upon stimulating a good acupoint.  Stop triggering the point as soon as this reaction occurs (usually within half a minute or less).  In any event, triggering for more than a minute or two is unnecessary.
