Acupressure Therapy : Acupressure Points for Asthma

Difficulty breathing? Think you might have
asthma or know you have asthma? Hi, my name is Mark Brinson, I’m a Doctor of Oriental
Medicine, Human Performance and Physical Medicine Specialists. When people have difficulty breathing
or asthma, there are several treatments that you can use with acupressure that will facilitate
you maintaining a better balance in your body, especially in the lung system. The lung system
in Eastern Medicine doesn’t just relate to asthma and the lungs themselves, it relates
to the whole respiratory system and the skin so these treatments can also improve that.
A couple of the points you can use are just lateral and directly below the clavicles.
I usually do these, or have the person do them, with two fingers at the same time and
just a circular motion, this can help to increase the overall lung function. Another nonspecific
point, more of a channel type stimulation that you can do, is very simply taking your
hands and stroking downward on the sternum. I would do this for about one to two minutes
and possibly a little bit quicker than I’m doing it now. A third thing that you can do
is learning how to breathe through the diaphragm, once again, instead of the chest. Many times
people with asthma start to get problems with their scaling muscles, they become a chest
breather. You can see mine kind of contract when I try to breathe through my chest. Getting
a good massage therapist to work these out can help as well as learning a breathing exercise,
where you lay on the floor for a period of about two minutes, practice breathing where
you let your stomach rise, then the chest, then the chest goes down and then the stomach
goes down. Repeat that for two to three minutes until your body learns neuromuscularly to
start diaphragmatically breathing again. My name is Mark Brinson, wishing you balance
and good breathing in your life.

  1. Dear Mr. Brinson, acupressure debunks asthma as an insufficiently researched "disease".
    One gets the same powerful relieving effect by lip pressure. Sufficient and natural lip closure pressure, absent in mouth breathing asthmatics, relaxes lung airways by a reflex loop.
    Therefore just pay careful attention to lip closure to heal asthma. Lip pressure is not only needed for love. I cured my allegedly incurable asthma by lip pressing. More pollen in air (July) more lip pressure.

  2. Acupressure Points for Asthma is better way than conventional medicines: secrets revealed

  3. Dear Dr. Mark Brinson, but the most obvious point is gv26 on the upper lip. Pressing here by holding lips together during nose breathing keeps lung airways open and counters asthma. Mouth breathing may well lead to asthma as we all know.

  4. There is a catch 22 dilemma on asthma treatment with asthma and acupressure. The acupoints are not on the face, so the advantage and breakthrough by using lip points like gv26 is excluded for no good reason.
    If pressing lips together on inhaling through the nose could be instructed this would mean a revolution with highly effective breathing retraining also entailing sleeping with nose breathing.
