Feeling jittery? Heart palpitations? Certain thyroid conditions can bring about these kinds of symptoms.

There are a bunch of points around your wrist, including one that helps with palpitations. One easy way to get those is to wrap one hand around the wrist of the other hand.

  • A comfortable way to do this is to sit in a chair, feet flat on the floor.
  • Rest one hand on your lap, palm up.
  • With your other hand, wrap your fingers around your wrist so your thumb touches other other fingers lightly. You don’t need to hold tight, but the goal is to have some light contact around your wrist.

As with all acu-point holding, it helps to take slow breaths while you hold the points. I like to close my eyes.
