Anxiety is a typical emotion in our daily lives. However, when we regularly feel disproportionate amount of anxiety and don’t have the proper outlet, it might become a medical concern. A safe way to address this is to change the focus. Step away from the situation, take a walk or listen to some music; this will give your body some time to calm down, so we can make better decisions. Applying pressure on key pressure point is another way to quickly reduce anxiety level. Inner gate (PC6) is a good point to apply some gentle acupressure. Locate your wrist crease on the palm side of your arm, measure up your arm about two thumb widths from the middle of the crease and the point is in between the two tendons. In TCM, PC6 can regulates Qi and calms the Shen.
