You'll Be Surprised What Will Happen If You Press This Part Of Your Foot Every Day

Acupressure is increasingly gaining recognition as a powerful alternative health therapy. The LV 3 acupressure point is especially known as an area that can be stimulated to promote health.

Close to the metatarsal bones in your foot, LV 3 (Tai Chong in Chinese) means Liver 3 due to its connection to the liver meridian, which connects to numerous different parts of your body and had various impacts on your health.

Stimulation of the LV 3 point is known to have a positive effect on stress levels by improving your concentration and thinking. It can also help relieve chronic fatigue.

Many sources suggest that LV 3 can be a major source of pain relief, because of its relationship with the lower back. Problems in the genital area can also be lessened by stimulating LV 3, especially menstrual cramps, and it can also help with eye problems and headaches.

Other sources suggest LV 3 is of benefit with indigestion, upset stomachs, and hangovers. LV 3 can even help adjust your metabolism to help you lose weight.

Some studies even suggest that LV 3 may have some therapeutic benefit in treating depression and anxiety, possibly related to less stress and insomnia.

LV 3 has also been used in Asia for centuries to combat the tremors caused by Parkinson's disease.

To locate your LV 3 point, find the area between your big toe and the next toe, then move down just two fingers' width. The LV 3 acupressure point is found just above the protruding bone there. Locate the slight depression and press down gently, massaging the area. Ideally, the massage should be performed for a few minutes a few times a day.
