Hi, I'm Hilary Talbott, Acupuncture Physician and Clinical Herbalist. Today, we will be discussing acupressure for hives. Now, there are many different reasons why you could be experiencing hives. It could be as simple as stress or it could be as complex as a reaction to medication. So, it, it's important to understand where the nature of your hives is coming from. A point that I often use in acupressure and acupuncture is large intestine 11. Large intestine 11 is located on the large intestine meridian and it's located at the end of the crease of the elbow. This point is effective for releasing heat from the body which is oftentimes that cause in hives as well as the large intestine being part of the metal element. The metal element has a lot to do with the skin as it comprise, it is comprise of the large intestine and the lung. This point use daily could help to prevent hives from occurring as well as to tone down an active outbreak of hives. You just want to use moderate pressure in circular motion, counterclockwise preferably on either arm for about thirty seconds at a time, about ten times a day. As I said before, it's important to understand where your hives are coming from; so, I invite you to locate your local acupuncturist at in order to get a specific diagnosis to you. I'm Hilary Talbott and that was acupressure for hives.
