What's The Point? Yintang

𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩'𝙨 𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙋𝙤𝙞𝙣𝙩?

Do you know what my favourite acupuncture point is? Its Yintang. I use this point a lot in my clinic because of its benefits in calming the mind and reducing stress, anxiety, headaches and insomnia.

Yintang is an acupuncture point between your eyebrows. This is just one of many acupuncture points located on your body, identified variously as the Hall of Impression, Extra-1, and EX-HN3.

Did you know that in some cultures, this point is thought to be in the location of your third eye? Which is believed to stabilize your mental outlook. Its also known as The Upper Dantien. Some believe this point activates our 'Third Eye' or 'Ajna' - the 6th Chakra, Center of Intuition, and spiritual vision. It activates the pituitary gland, thereby fostering our sense of connection to others and nature.

Clinical acupuncture reviews show that this point can help reduce anxiety (Kwon and Lee, 2018). 

How can you use it?
You can do self-massage on this point, using slow circular motions for a few minutes. This can help calm your mind, benefit your sinuses and relieve headache or forehead tension. You can also add diluted essential oils such as Lavender or Frankincense to enhance your relief.
