Acupressure is a technique derived from acupuncture that is often used in massage. No needles are used, just firm, sustained pressure on specific points to achieve a desired effect. One of the effects is appetite control.
Here are some appetite controlling acupressure points used in professional massage that you can use at home. Find the points and apply pressure (not to cause pain) for 2 minutes.
1. Appetite Control Point - locate the small piece of flesh that protrudes from the inside of the ear, above the earlobe. Hold between finger and thumb for 2 minutes.
2. Earlobe - beneath earlobe where the ear is connected to the jaw.
3. Shin - place 4 fingers right below kneecap. The point is on the outer part of the shin level with the last finger.
4. Upper Lip - Locate the point in the center between the end of your nose and beginning of your upper lip.
Try these before eating. Note: if pregnant, don't use the Shin Point,
