What are 5 Acupressure Points for Chronic Fatigue? | AC Punc Acupuncture

I want to introduce the best 5 acupressure points for chronic fatigue that you can massage for about 30 seconds.

Acupressure originated in ancient China based on the acupoints’ principle across the meridians, correcting the imbalance between Qi.

Activation of specific points on the meridians is known to reduce pain at the local sites.

Do you have such troubles?
You are easy to get tired
You have a hard time getting up in the morning.
You can’t concentrate or have a foggy head.

What causes chronic fatigue?

Do you have symptoms like tired all the time, heavy body, depression, and irritability?

Suppose you can’t keep up with anything you want.

In that case, you might have one of the primary medical conditions called adrenal fatigue syndrome.

Adrenal fatigue syndrome is the most common cause of chronic fatigue.

It develops from stimulating the adrenal gland too much for an extended time so that the gland won’t be able to secrete cortisol by itself and boost up your energy.

As a result, your energy goes down rapidly and makes you feel tired all the time.

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 Traditional Chinese Medicine, we consider the adrenal glands as a Kidney.

The kidney in TCM is an organ to store prenatal energy that your mother gave you.

Once your prenatal energy is depleted, it isn’t easy to replenish it. To gain or restore the energy, you have to get it from the digestive system.

What are 5 Acupressure Points for Chronic Fatigue?


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.


ST36 is one of the significant acupuncture points to strengthen the function of the stomach. The stomach creates energy from the food, and if you don’t have an excellent digestive system, you won’t be able to store the fuel. It locates 3 inches below the outer kneecap.


KD6 is the essential acupuncture point for prenatal energy. In Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis, the kidney organs represent reproductive systems and store the power you get from your mother. This point is a tonification point, so if you stimulate, you can keep the energy. It locates 2 inches above the medial malleolus.


Ren6 is 0.5 inches below the belly button. In other words, we call this point Dan tian. When you meditate, you can press or hold by hands while you are doing meditation. This point is called “The Energy Ocean,” which works to nourish the energy.

Yin Tang

Yin Tang is a unique point for calming the mind because it balances the nervous systems that manage stress. After all, you can get low energy due to stress. It locates between the eyebrows.


In conclusion, I want you to massage these 5 acupuncture points for chronic fatigue such as SP6, ST36, KD3, Ren6, and Yin Tang every day for about 30 seconds to release the acidity.

On top of them, please do not forget that you have a good diet, sleep, and light exercise like yoga, walking, even meditation, etc.

I hope it helps your condition, and you will be able to have a good time.
