The second acupressure point to help reduce postpartum depression is ‘Tai Chong’.
It is found on the top of your feet.
To find this point, begin with your index finger between your first and second toe.
Next, trace a line back until you reach the point where the two bones of the toes connect.
Just before the meeting point of the bones is the Tai Chong point.
Push down hard on this point, and continue the pressure while making a circular motion. You want to do 30-50 circles, applying pressure the entire time. Do this on BOTH feet.
The Tai Chong point helps to calm your emotions.
It improves the flow of chi to your liver. This reduces postpartum depression because your liver controls the emotions that cause depression.
Push these points several times a day if you are experiencing regular postpartum depression…
