Alternative Alley: Acupressure for Depression

Head Points

Consists of 3 points:

  1. The Posterior Summit (GV 19)
  2. One Hundred Meeting Point (GV 20)
  3. Anterior Summit (GV 21)

These points are all located on the top of the head. Pressing them can relieve depression with accompanying headache and memory lapses.

Begin with the middle point, GV 20. Place your left thumb on the top of your left ear and your right thumb on the top of your right ear. Move your fingertips toward the top of your head and feel for a hollow near the top center of your head.

GV 19, also situated in a hollow, lies approximately one inch behind GV 20.

GV 21 lies one inch in front of GV 20.

As you apply steady, firm pressure to these points, relax your body and let your tension and depression slip away.
