Acupressure Therapy : Acupressure Points for Excess Phlegm

January 5, 2020 9 By Bertrand Dibbert


Phlegm, phlegm, phlegm, don’t you just love
that word? My name is Mark Brinson, I’m a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, PhysicalMedicine
Specialist and International Seminar Provider. We’re talking about acupressure and phlegm
and I want you to understand that in Eastern Medicine, phlegm isn’t necessarily the kind
that accumulates in the lungs so I’m going to talk about the type that accumulates in
the lungs, assuming that that’s what you’re looking for. Something that’s associated with
the common cold or bronchial type problems. What I’m going to give you today is an acupressure
point that can help to, overall, reduce any type of excess type of fluid build up in the
body but I’m also going to give you a point, or a technique, that will specifically stimulate
the expectoration of phlegm. The point, of the acupressure point, is located on the inside
of the leg just below the knee, between the bone and the muscle. There’s a point here
called spleen nine that if you stimulate it, will help with all sorts of fluid type build
up in the body and that is really good for chest type of phlegm that you might be talking
about. The other thing that you can do is have someone on your back, and I’m going to
pretend like this is my back as I’m doing this. Make a cupping motion with their hand,
as you’re lying down, and
vigorously cup over the entire back, especially paying attention to the area over the lungs.
This will help you to expectorate any phlegm that you might having. Dietarily, I would
also recommend pear juice and the juice of the loquat, if you can find it. It’s usually
as easy as going to your Eastern grocery store to be able to get either one of those things
in liquid form. My name is Mark Brinson, wishing you balance in your life.
