Acupressure Points for Sore Throat – Massage Monday #297


Hi everyone, this is Yasuko and it’s time
for Massage Monday. This week I’m going to show acupressure points for sore throat. For the first set of points, first find your
Adam’s apple. From the top edge of the Adam’s apple go horizontally to the neck muscle called
Sternocleidomastoid. The first point is in front of the Sternocleidomastoid. This is
called Stomach 9 or ST 9. You will feel the pulse here.
The second point is on the other side of the Sternocleidomastoid. This is called Small
Intestine 16 or SI 16. Gently press these points for one minute as you breathe deeply. For the next set of points, find your Adam’s
apple again. From the bottom edge of the Adam’s apple go horizontally to Sternocleidomastoid
again. The third point is in front of the same neck muscle. This is called Stomach 10
or ST 10. The fourth point is on the other side of the Sternocleidomastoid. This is called
Large Intestine 17 or LI 17. Again gently press these points for one minute as you breathe
deeply. When you press these points do it one side
at a time because when you do both sides at the same time you will be choking yourself
and you will feel your head and face swelling up. The next one is right above the sternum in
the middle. This is called Conception Vessel 22 or CV 22. Slightly hook your finger and
press this point in and slightly downward instead of straight in to choke yourself. The last one is in the depression between
the two heads of Sternocleidomastoid right above the collar bone. These are called Stomach
11 or ST 11. You can press these points on both sides at the same time. Press these points for one minute as you breathe
deeply. Be careful not to press too hard since this is a delicate area. Thanks for watching. I’ll see you back next
week. Make it a great week and please don’t forget to subscribe.

  1. wow, absolutely amazing. I performed this routine on my mother when she woke up. Shes late stage Alzheimer's and hasnt been swallowing her food. Today she finished her smoothie, took her meds and drank water. It these little things that make a huge difference

  2. I'm looking for acupressure for Thyroid imbalance. I though that you had a video on this subject. Where can I find the link?

  3. Seems like it works better in a relaxed position. Could feel the swollen areas emerge after a few seconds of contact. Hoping can get sleep now. Thanks.

  4. Had a sore throat that was getting progressively worse that made it extremely difficult and painful to eat and drink. Didn’t work immediately for me, but I woke up the next day and my sore throat was 90% gone! It really works y’all! Thanks so much! Do you have any videos on how to relieve migraines with acupressure?

  5. かわむらさん、ありがとうございます。This massage seems very good for my throat.  I'll massage my throat by these  points everyday.I am verey happy that I found you while I was serching in English key words! I appreciate your wonderful work from Japan. Thak you!
