Hi. I'm Hilary Talbott, acupuncture physician and clinical herbalist. Today, we will be discussing acupressure for the fingers and toes. So, I've talked about the Jing-well points before, so I'm going to demonstrate them on the hand today. And these points are located on the feet as well. At the bottom, where the widest part of the fingernail and the lowest part of the fingernail bed would meet in the corner. These are the Jing-well points. These are said to open up the entire meridian. So, there are six meridians on the hand; so this one here, with gentle stimulation from your fingernail will actually be most effective to open up the small intestine channel. On the pinkie, just on the other side, to open up the heart channel. On the lateral side of the ring finger is the triple-burner or triple-energizer meridian. This opens that one. The pericardium is the only one that's a little bit different, and it's located on the top of the finger instead of at the nail bed. The large intestine channel is located on the inside of the pointer finger in the same location, and the lung point is located right here on the outside of the thumb. You can stimulate the Jing-well points found on the feet in the same manner, by located the outtest portion of the nail bed and the bottom portion and where they would cross in the corners. I'm Hilary Talbott, and that was acupressure for fingers and toes.
