Hi, I'm Hilary Talbott, acupuncture physician and clinical herbalist. Today I will be showing you acupressure points that will help alleviate nosebleed. Now there are several different reasons why you could be experiencing a nosebleed. It could be a side effect of a pharmaceutical, it could be a result of trauma to the nose, as well as what the Chinese refer to as blood moving recklessly throughout the body or heat in the blood. A lot of times this happens during menopause or even during pregnancy. So, using the lunch channel because its affinity for the nose in Chinese medicine is a series of points that we usually pick. the lung channel starts right here on the outside of the nail bed of the thumb. And then it continues down through the thenar eminence and down the wrists and into the elbow. And it continues a lot further than that, but these are actually the area that I will use to stop a nosebleed. This point, the c point, lung five, in the elbow right here, is a really good point to massage to stop the nosebleed because you can really just kind of grab hold and pinch on the meaty part of the arm right here and it almost always immediately stops a nosebleed. If nosebleeds are something that you experience chronically, more than just every now and again, I can encourage you to seek out your local acupuncture physician to find out why. They can oftentimes prescribe certain acupressure points specific to you to stop it from happening completely. I'm Hilary Talbott, and that was acupressure for nosebleeds.
