This point is on the top of your foot and helps address fatigue, headaches, insomnia related to “busy mind”, hangovers, eye issues (swelling, pain) and alleviates pain. It’s also helpful in energizing. Some people feel a “great surge” of energy move from their feet, up their legs and bodies; hence the name.
To hold: There are several ways you can do this. It’s important that you are comfortable in your shoulders and arms, so experiment with different ways to hold the point, and see what is most comfortable.
You can sit on a chair with your feet flat on the ground, and bend down to reach the top of your foot with your index or middle finger. Firmly press on the point with a steady pressure. Hold first for 10 seconds or so, and then work up to a minute as long as it is comfortable. As with holding all acupressure points, take deep slow breaths as you hold the point.
I find that it can be easier to hold this point by “sandwiching” it between one finger to top of my foot, and another underneath. See the photos below where I use my thumb on top in one case; the index finger on top in another.
Often, this point can be tender; if it is, release the pressure if it is too uncomfortable. This point, too, can take a lot of pressure, so experiment with different degrees of pressure.
