Hi, I'm Hilary Talbott, acupuncture physician and clinical herbalist. Today, we will be discussing OCD and acupressure. Now, OCD stands for obsessive compulsive disorder. And this is a pretty complex psychological disorder that I encourage you to seek professional help with if you haven't already. Today, I'm going to show you some points that could possibly help to calm you, and I encourage people to focus on the task at hand that they are trying to get done while stimulating these points. In order to avoid that kind of repetitive thought process that's going through their head, of what to do. So, I'm going to mark these points so you can actually see them with some ear seeds here. A little vacarria seeds. And these are great. Sometimes I send my patients home with these, 'cause it gives them a little bit of control to give themselves acupressure for like four to five days. So, this set of points I refer to as the Buddha triangle because it's nice and calming and centering. We are going to use heart seven first. Heart seven is located down the heart channel from the, on the pinkie. Lets see right in the crease of the wrist. And then, we are also going to use lung nine. And both of these points are source points to these organs, so it's said that they treat these organs directly. So, you can, the lung and heart are definitely good to treat with OCD, with overthinking. So, these two points right here, heart seven and lung nine. And then, we are going to also include P six because P six has a synergistic effect on a lot of points on the body, meaning that it amplifies what they do, and it's also pretty calming and would help avoid any digestional upset that comes with feeling upset. P six is located between the two tendons on the inside of the wrist right after the vein crosses. So, on our model today, it's right here. And you want to stimulate all three points at the same time. So, I'm going to use my fingers just like this. And stimulate these points while taking nice deep breaths. And taking a second to focus on the task at hand other then, instead of the thoughts, the repetitive thoughts that are going through your head. Like I said, it's important to have a trained clinician that can help you with the OCD, as well as an acupuncture physician that is skilled in treating mental illness. I'm Hilary Talbott, and that was acupressure and OCD.
