How to use acupressure against tiredness

Are you often tired even though you actually sleep enough and do enough for your sleep hygiene?

Then you should try to fight fatigue with a self-massage. Massages have some positive properties that you can use for yourself.

The acupressure applies here as one of the most effective techniques to defeat fatigue. In this guide you will find out which acupressure points you should massage and how to proceed.

Before you start acupressure, find out why you seem to be lacking some energy. Because there are some reasons that contribute to fatigue, but are hardly present in the consciousness of society.


For many people, a glass of wine in the evening or a beer after work are part of a successful day. Especially when people suffer from insomnia, alcohol is used to help them fall asleep better. The alcohol actually causes better sleep is found. However, this is less relaxing because the body has to break down the alcohol. Therefore, alcohol should be avoided if you are tired during the day.


Everyday life is difficult to imagine without the smartphone. Even in the evening, the handy device is used to communicate with friends or to look for new pictures on Instagram. The smartphone is a serious factor when it comes to sleep problems and fatigue. Because the bluish light of the display prevents the production of the sleep hormone melatonin. Put the smartphone aside two hours before going to bed and stop using it.


Humans are creatures of habit and this is especially true when it comes to sleep. If you often go to bed at different times, it is difficult for your body to adjust to sleep. So get used to fixed bedtime and try to keep to them as best you can on the weekend.


Acupressure is based on the Far Eastern idea that the body is pervaded by lines of life . The energy flows through this and if there are complaints or illnesses, the cause could be that a line of life is blocked.

Unlike conventional massages, acupressure does not massage the body over a large area. It is more about addressing certain points in a targeted manner. By specifically applying pressure to this point , the blockage is released and the energy can flow again.

Acupressure is actually suitable for relieving tension and ensuring a higher level of well-being. The blood circulation is promoted and this should also reduce tiredness.

In order to relieve fatigue with the help of acupressure, the point must be stimulated for at least 15 seconds. You can do this by applying pressure with your thumb. You can do this short massage three times a day and see whether the tiredness goes away.


Which acupressure points are now suitable to fight against fatigue? In the following you will find 3 acupressure areas that should help you to get more energy in everyday life.


Hands and feet are given a special status in acupressure. They are said to have a few key points that can be massaged to relieve discomfort. In fact, the hand is closely linked to the brain and a joint hand seems logical.

An acupressure point is on the little finger. To do this, massage the upper side of the little finger for about 30 seconds with the thumb of the same hand. You can do this for both hands at the same time.

Another point is between the thumb and forefinger. Massage this wrinkle and you will not only conquer fatigue, but you will also be able to concentrate better. At least this is promised with the massage of the point.

If you work a lot on the computer, concentrate primarily on massaging your hands. This should have a noticeable effect.


The earlobe is a rather sensitive area . It can lead to sexual arousal or maybe you are ticklish there.

Acupressure of the earlobe is said to be associated with relieving fatigue. To do this, you can elongate the earlobe a little. Targeted knocking or pressing should also have a positive effect.

You should test yourself which technique is best for you. The earlobe is a real secret weapon when you need more energy for the day.


Fatigue and headaches are common consequences of tension in the neck. The blood circulation is impaired and the brain can no longer work at full capacity. To use acupressure, make sure the neck is relaxed. To do this, pull your chin in a little to relax the muscles.

Now you grasp the muscles of the neck. These are located a little to the side of the cervical spine and should be clearly felt. Massage it vigorously and apply high pressure. You can also tap the muscles if this seems more relaxing to you.

The self-massage in the neck has a relaxing effect and reduces stress. Overall, you will feel relaxed and perceive the tiredness as less severe.

If you don’t succeed in the massage, you can also use a neck massager . This is specialized for the treatment of the neck and can also relieve the upper back of annoying tension.

If you want to treat your body holistically, an acupressure mat or an acupressure pillow is also recommended. You can also use this as a preventative measure so that no symptoms occur in the first place.
