1. The Rim of Eyes

The orb of the eye is surrounded by bones, where are several pressure points that can help with pain or other ailments related to the eyes. The useful acupressure points for eyes in these areas include:

  • ŸUB-1 (also known as Jingming): This spot is where the inner corner of the eye meets the nose. It is helpful when dealing with glaucoma, hysteria with vision loss and early stage cataracts. This is located on the urinary bladder channel.
  • ŸUB-2 (also known as Zanzhu): Also located on the urinary bladder channel, this is in the depressions of the eyebrows, closest to the nose.
  • ŸYuyao: In the midpoint of the eyebrow, this point helps with worry, mental strain and strain to the eyes due to over-studying.
  • ŸSJ 23 (also known as Sizhukong): On the triple burner channel, this spot is on the outside end of the eyebrow. It can help with facial issues and other eye problems.
  • ŸGB 1 (also known as Tongziliao): On the gall bladder channel, the outside corner of the eye sockets where the cavity is. This helps with sore eyes that are red, dry, itchy eyes and blurred vision.
