Acupressure Point SP-6

Your FREE seated tai chi exercise and acupressure point instructions

Reaching Down to Eliminate Disease:

  • Begin as usual seated in a comfortable chair, feet flat on the floor and your back fully supported by the back of your chair.
  • Breathe in and out through your nose only 6 to 12 times, concentrating on the flow of breath and energy throughout your body.
  • Rest your palms on your thighs, breathe in through your nose.
  • Bend over between your thighs while breathing out through your mouth and sliding your hands down the back of your legs.
  • When you reach the lowest point possible, begin breathing in through your nose and slide your hands back up your legs.
  • Return your hands to your thighs. Hold your breath for a few seconds as you rise up on the balls of your feet and visualize your body filled with clean, healing energy.
  • Repeat steps #3 through #6 for at least 6 repetitions if you are able to do so without pain or becoming short of breath.
  • You can locate the acupressure point, Three Yin Crossing (Sp 6), on the photo illustration above.
  • This point is on the inside of your leg about 4 finger-widths above your inner anklebone.
  • Press firmly on this point for no less than a full minute. You may change legs and repeat the pressure on the inside of your other leg.
  • Don’t forget to drink water after you finish the exercise or at any time you feel thirsty.
    Word of Caution…If you have kidney problems, follow the advice of your physician as to the amount of water you can safely drink.
