Did You Know 5 Acupressure Points for Vertigo? | AC Punc Acupuncture
I want to introduce the best 5 acupressure points for vertigo.
Acupressure originated in ancient China based on the acupoints’ principle across the meridians, correcting the imbalance between Qi.
Activation of specific issues on the meridians is known to reduce pain at the local sites.
What causes vertigo?
If you have such symptoms, in traditional Chinese medicine, you might have one of the significant vertigo conditions called liver fire rising.
Suppose you get vertigo quickly. It develops from Liver Yang to shoot up and creates fire or heat in the head.
As a result, you have too many heat signs in the head, causing headaches or vertigo.
The Liver in TCM is an organ to regulates Qi or energy whole through the body.
Because the liver is easily influenced by stress, it is easy to get stuck or move too fast or too quickly and imbalance the yin and yang energy.
Once the yang energy goes up too much, your blood pressure shoots up as well, resulting in high blood pressure.
So, once you take care of your high blood pressure, your vertigo might be improved or even gone.
What is Acupressure?
Acupuncture is oriental medicine using acupuncture needles.
Acupuncture points are everywhere in the human body.
More than 360 points are in the human body, and these dots are connected. Acupuncture points are like the train station, and the meridians are like railroads.
Qi or energy is the train. When you are healthy, the train is running all the time, 24/7.
However, if you are sick or injured, the train stopped causing pain or other body symptoms.
In this study, among Chinese herbs and formulas, acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, qigong, Tai Chi, diet, and exercise therapy, acupuncture is useful for lowering blood pressure and improving the circadian rhythm of BP in patients with hypertension.
What are 5 Acupressure Points for Vertigo?
SP6 is one of the significant acupuncture points for deficient Yin energy, which is the point of three yin meridians across to each other.
And it locates 3 inches above the inner malleolus.

SJ5 is the acupuncture point to release the SCM muscles, which are the major neck muscles.
Once you have tight neck muscles, you will get symptoms above the neck like headache, dizziness, ringing in the ears, etc.

LI4 is one of the effective acupuncture to dispel the wind caused by liver fire ringing.
When the fire is increasing, it creates the wind.
The wind is another cause of vertigo.
