Diet charts, treadmills, aerobics…sometimes, it becomes a pain in the ass (and literally, in most parts of the body!) to lose weight, specially if you are a foodie and can’t control those fancy desires of eating a cheesecake and a chicken roll at random hours. Slowly and gradually, your whole workout routine turns into a nightmare. Enter: acupressure.
The good news is that apart from easing nausea, vomiting, lower back pain, and headaches, acupressure is also helpful in losing weight.
Turns out a simple technique of acupressure can help you control your appetite and hunger, while at the same time improving your digestion.
The pressure point located in your ear helps to control appetite. You need to place your finger against the jaw and move your jaw up and down. Find the point that has most of the movement in your jaw and press it for a minute.
When you apply pressure on that particular point it sends a signal to the brain which then reacts and helps to suppress hunger.
How, you ask?
Spare a few minutes from your pretending-to-be-busy schedule and place your thumb in front of the triangular shaped tissue near you ear. Now open and close your jaw and find a point where it has maximum movement. That is the most active point between your ear and your jaw. Now stop right there, press that point for at least a minute, and you’re done.
Combine this technique with healthy eating habits and moderate exercise and see yourself lose weight naturally.
