* Focus and concentration/hyperactivity
The point is on the little finger end of the wrist crease in the depression next to the tendon.
Rub the point for 30 seconds then gently hold it for 5-10 minutes. You can use the point on either hand as often as you need.
There are a lot of coughs and colds going around at the moment. If you have a cough there are some simple acupressure points you can use to help bring some relief.
For a productive cough use the point on the wrist (Lung 9). It is on the wrist crease in the depression next to the bone.
For a dry cough use the point closer to the thumb (Lung 10). It is half way along the (metacarpal) bone where the skin changes colour.
They can both be used for a sore throat too. To use either of these points rub them for 30 secs then hold gently
