San Jiao (SJ5)

SJ5 known as Outer Pass is an amazing point to stimulate for headaches and migraines that are a result of wind cold, changes in weather and changes in air pressure or in the atmosphere around you. This is a very common complaint I hear every year as we are about to enter spring in northern hemisphere and autumn in southern hemisphere and as the weather around us changes. This point is located about 3 finger widths above the crease of the wrist in the centre, on the San Jiao channel. What to do: Stimulate the point with your finger for about 2 minutes. Repeat on both hands. If you have a gua sha tool use it for this. Using the gua sha tool at about a 45 degree angle, begin a bit before SJ5 and stroke upwards towards the shoulder. Do it for 3-5 minutes each hand. Repeat daily. To purchase my handmade gua sha tool, let me know. The manual of acupuncture at the SJ5 (Waiguan) acupoint shows neuroprotective serving to protect nerve cells against damage, degeneration, or impairment of function. PMID: 27073385
