Acupressure - Lung Channel (Wash Hands Before Acupressure)
The Lung (LU) channel/meridian is often used for respiratory disorders, such as coughing,
wheezing, asthma and short of breath; nasal disorders; disorders of throat such as dryness,
soreness, congestion, swelling and pain, in Chinese medicine. The LU points in this acupressure
exercise are more likely to be congested / stuck therefore the exercise is good to maintain the
regular energy flow of the channel. The primary LU channel pathway is shown in Figure 1, so
are all the acupuncture/acupressure points (11 in total). Please consult your doctors and
acupuncturist when you need medical treatments.
Each session repeats 32 (4x8) to 64 (8x8) times. The pressure should be gentle but firm.
1. Press LU-10 (Figure 2): LU-10 is located on the thenar eminence of the hand, in a
depression between the midpoint of the shaft of the first metacarpal bone the thenar muscles.
Use the thumb of the other hand to press and make small circles.
2. Press LU-6 (Figure 3): This point is located on the flexor aspect of the forearm, 5/12th
of the distance from the cubital crease to the crease of the wrist. Press with thumbs and make
small circles. Use the thumb of the other hand to press and make small circles.
