Stimulate Your “Letting Go”

greatideaIn Chinese Medicine, there are acupressure points on the outer chest known as the “Letting Go” points. Stimulating this area can help release stress and tension and promote relaxing breathing. Here’s how:

  1. Find your collarbones (start at the bony points just below the hollow of your throat)
  2. Follow the bones out toward your shoulders
  3. Move three finger widths below the outer edges of the collarbones (in line with the inner edge of your armpits)
  4. Press your fingertips into the Letting Go points, with gentle but firm pressure
  5. Breathe deeply as you continue pressing these points for three minutes
  6. Release gradually
